Meeting Other Moms

Meeting new people, generally speaking, has never been a hard task for me.  I’m what my mother likes to call a “social butterfly.”  And yet, for some unknown reason, I find it incredibly difficult to make friends with moms. Especially in LA.  Meeting new moms?  How do you do it?

I grew up in the 909, where folks are friendlier and women don’t wait till their 40 to have kids.  So when I had Layla and Brody, it was easy to make friends with other moms my age. Not so much in my current situation. At 32, I’m still considered a young mom in these parts!  Add in the anti-social, don’t make eye contact, attitude of Los Angeles, and it becomes very hard to meet new people (Thank God I wasn’t in the LA dating scene ever).

So I have decided to give Meetup.com a try.  I have my first meetup with fellow moms tomorrow at this great spot in Canoga Park.  Here’s hoping I make some new mom friends (I won’t show a bias on age)!  I’ll keep you posted.
