Do you have many friends?
Do you find it hard to keep in touch with people since you became a mom?

I have several close friends, but I do find it hard to keep in touch as we all have kids and lives of our own. But when we do get together or talk, it's like we talk every day. FB helps us keep in touch a lot better though.

I did back in OK, i had a ton of friends, we lived in small town so I knew everyone, and had a lot of the same friends since kindergarten.
I have made one, maybe two friends since we moved here in Dec 09... one is from work, and I only see her to babysit her daughter twice a month, the other is Dhs cousin's girlfriend, we don't see eachother often though.
I miss having friends, and being a stay at home mom in a city where I don't know anyone outside of Dhs family makes it pretty hard to meet people.
I try to stay in touch with my close friends from back home, on FB and through calls and text, but its really only 2-3 that I still talk to.

My best friend moved away Only 4.5 hours, but still..
I've known her since we were 6. We went to Kindergarten together. She moved away last summer to take an awesome job opportunity.
Thankfully, we have FB and texting and what not to keep in close touch, but I miss her.
I have friends here, but no one like her.

I dont really have any friends. I have people that i meet at certain things, like the parent and toddler group, but i dont really have anyone that i can pick up the phone and call/text.

although i have met a lady and we are going shopping next week. Its such a big deal my dh is taking the day off work to mind the kids so i can go on my own! i havent been out with a friend since before i had jake. Once i had him all my friends seemed to disappear.

That prob makes me seem like such a saddo! but ime, people with kids already have friends and are too busy to make new ones!

My best friend lives 4-5 hours away, so we make do with phone calls, FB, and the occasional visit. Here, I have a few friends from when I worked but we only get together every few months. Everyone has kids and they all work/go to school so it's certainly more difficult to work out a time that is good for everyone.

My best friend lives on the opposite side of the country now. I miss her, but she is a teacher so she comes home during breaks, and we do text and call as well. Locally, I really only have two. One of them I barely see because between the two of us, our schedules are too hard to coordinate. My friend Angie comes over once in awhile. I have another very good friend who lives an hour away, and we very rarely see each other, but we keep in touch via phone, fb and the occasional msn chat.

I don't have any really close friends here that I would consider BFF's, but there are a few people that I can go and visit with and have coffee with, etc.

I am really into attachment parenting, and I just tried to start an AP group in my area and got a decent reception, so perhaps I will meet some awesome people that way.

I'm really AP too. And now my AP eldest is almost 5 and doing really well, i have so much more confidence with my new baby!
I really hope your AP group goes well! Its so great having people who share your beliefs and to give you support.

Do you have many friends? Outside my family...no. My siblings & their spouses seem to be my go to people for friend time.

Do you find it hard to keep in touch with people since you became a mom? Yes. Unless they have kids that are friends with ours, it's hard to stay in touch. There are a few from back home that I keep in touch with as best as I can.

It's hard to have friends when you are a stay at home mom. My BF and I used to hang out every week or so taking turns going to each other's house. Then she got a job at home and our time dwindled, then she moved an hour away and found a full time job...last time I seen her was for her daughters 4th birthday party. Since then no texts, calls, visits etc.

I have a problem keeping friends cuz they either get jobs or we just lose touch. I have a life-long friend I've known since she was born who lives in Canada that I text every now and then and I get to see her once a yr when she comes down to the states.

Other than that, I don't really have a BF anymore...maybe it'll change once I get to know these mom's at my daughters new school and it helps that they all live in the same city I do
