Do you like me? Circle yes or no
Remember in grade school passing notes like these? Things seem so much easier then. I recently asked another mom if she wanted to set up a play date for our kids. I get all nervous and awkward. It really feels like I'm asking her out. I hope she'll say yes.
I remember when I first became a mom how lonely it could be. I needed to meet people in my town with kids. I tried an organized moms group. Things didn't work out well. I actually showed up to two events and no else did. Talk about feeling lonely. I eventually meet some great moms through a program at our library. We formed our own playgroup. I feel lucky that I found some great moms and kids to hang out with. We occasionally go out for a moms night out but I'm still looking for a buddy to just bullshit with or go out to lunch with.
I do have some great friends from high school, college, work, and even a few wives of Dave's friends. I feel lucky to have so many good friends. I just wish they lived a little closer. So until I can convince everyone to move to my town, I'll continue looking for a good friend match.
