    So I moved from Brisbane to Rockhampton, i have tried so hard to make friends here but I’m failing! How do people make friends, I’ve tried the mothers group but I don’t really understand them. I’ve only ever had my good friends that I went to school with people I’ve known for years.
    Now I live in Rockhampton I have no one to talk to no one to vent to. I have become a absolute hermit!

    We moved for hubby’s work, I feel so alone & im not use to it. It is starting to absolutely tear me apart not having a friend to talk to someone to go for a cuppa or lunch anything… god I would kill just to have someone to talk to relate to and understand. :'( i’m becoming absolutely miserable & hubby just doesn’t understand because now his got his mates and that’s all that seems to matter!

    My excitement is other then stalk Constance Facebook since I don’t have Facebook now (mutual agreement with hubby) when hubby goes off to work because I have a house to clean, seriously my excitement in my life is cleaning and having something to clean other then play with the kids & blow raspberries at my little one.

    Anyone relatable??

    Yes I can relate having recently moved from NZ to Brisbane.

    It is shit and the isolation is really kicking in. I work full time and just don’t click with most mums like I do my friends.

    Someone told me to stop looking for the perfect friend and to roll with it when meeting people. It takes time and you don’t need a heap in common – just that one thing. More often than not we have a facade that we put up when meeting people for the first time.

    I hope there are some other queens on here in your area that maybe you can meet up with.

    Sending you big hugs and a virtual friend in brissy!
