Just wondering if anyone has used any of the websites for moms to meet other moms...I'm new to the area, a SAHM and all of my friends are back husband recently changed jobs and is now working M-F 8-5. I know its a normal job...his schedule before was very flexible and he was home a lot so I had some adult conversation but its still not the same as having girlfriends :/ Any recommendations would be great!!! Thanks!!!

What can I do next?

I would also go to places like the library if you like to read and the YMCA if you like to work out. You'll meet people with the same likes as you.

Good luck!

What is your neighborhood like?

Our neighborhood has a website and we have a very active social calendar with mom's night out, play dates, etc. There is a welcoming committee that gives each new homeowner some information and welcoming basket.

What about walking around in your neighborhood, go to the local park, local pools, enroll your little one in some gym, music, art, etc class. f you go to church, seek out a mom's group there.

Best wishes and welcome to Texas!

I've found the local library is a great place to find out about groups. Go to their scheduled activities and put yourself out there. Taking walks in the neighborhood is great, too. This time of year, everyone is outside. Go to your local pools. Lots of moms and meetup groups go there in the summer. If you have a local recreation center, many have bulletin boards with meetup info.
Good luck!

For a while, I was trying to start up a local group through the website: It's more geared towards meeting other moms to share babysitting... but anyways, worth a look.

Also, maybe have him ask around at work if any of them have SAHM wives who are interested in meeting up for "play dates"? Join a church? Attend activities with your kids (like Gymboree, or other age-appropriate) and talk to the other parents...

How old are your kids? If preschool or younger you might try MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) groups. They have a website if you google MOPS and they are nationwide. Good luck!

I've done and found both general groups in my area, as well as more specialized interest groups (I joined a Catholic moms group in my area), and groups for families with special needs kids. I've also joined the mom & tots group at my old church, and I made a few very close friends through that.


answers from Houston on

We really need someone to investigate why meeting and making friends in so difficult for adults. When I retire in 8 years, that may be my project--like

Buggys mom--don't limit yourself to mommy groups. Some empty nest moms may also be good friends and they may also like to babysit some evenings.
