Thank you so much for all of your awesome comments on my Friends post. I have a little confession to make. I actually wrote that post weeks ago. I read it over a few times and decided not to publish it because it made me sound like a HUGE desperate loser. Fast forward to last week when I finally decided to hit publish just because I wanted to post this.
I MADE A FRIEND!!!!
You know,without sounding like well....a huge desperate loser. HAHA!
A month ago I joined a play group that I found on online. I found it on Meetup.com. I made sure to warn the hubs first though, all I could picture was him freaking out when he saw "meetup.com" in our computer history. I didn't want him to think I was hitting up the dating boards or something.HAHA! In case you don't know, Meetup.com is basically just a place for you to find groups of people with similar interests. In my case...Mom friends!
I found an awesome playgroup. I'm not gonna lie, I was very hesitant about going to one of the playdates listed on their calendar. I didn't just want to show up at someones house and be that random new person who everyone ignores. Thankfully I lucked out, one of the members lives in my neighborhood and was hosting a playdate at my neighborhood pool. It was the perfect opportunity for me to go meet some new girls and not feel out of place if they were all rude snobby hoochies. Within about 10 seconds of walking into the pool a girl walked up to me and asked if I was with "the playgroup". She was awesome and talked to me for a while before welcoming the next new member who showed up. Finally I can say I know some people in Columbia!!
Over the last month I have been to numerous playdates and met alot of great ladies. London has been meeting some new friends too (Don't worry Scarlett, you're still his BFF :) ) I have even met a few not so nice girls, one even made fun of my blog. Yep, there are tons of crazies out there. I will be avoiding her since I don't think the appropriate place to curse her out is a playdate. :)
I met one girl in particular that I think will actually become a real friend. On our first "date" she came over and we drank wine all night. I told her way too much about myself and she did the same, and neither one of us got up and ran out of the room screaming. I think she is a keeper! :)
Thanks for all of your support. You gals really made me realize that I wasn't alone in the uncomfortable search for friends. You have no idea how much your comments helped me feel normal again, and really helped me remember why I started blogging in the first place.
