[ - ] Posters here dog on women with no female friends. Well, that's me. I do t set out to not have friends or to be unapproachable but clearly I am. Not o e ever invites me out for coffee or to dinner or parties. What am I doing wrong? I'm not a gym bunny and I know that is where a lot of the bonding happens. Two weeks into school and I feel like the other moms know each other pretty well and I'm on the outside, as usual. 2 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Is there anyone you feel like you could invite somewhere? Is there a school committee or something you could get involved with? It's a great way to meet other moms. We moved to a new city and new school last year, and it was hard at first to break in. I started working on the auction committee at DS' school and met a few really cool women through that.

is this a new thing or pretty much your normal state (no friends)? New school or same school as last year? I would just go into each drop off/pick up with a smile on your face and say hi to other moms or open with something neutral like "Amy's excited about the field trip. Is Sarah?" and take it from there. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Stressed out WOHM whose DH is currently unemployed. He spoke to a friend last night who told him his wife no longer works. DH said it's because the DW has 2 young DCs (so do we!) and her job (social worker helping troubled families) was giving her nightmares. I can't say this IRL but what a friggin snowflake. My job gives me agita and heart palpitations but I'm forced to suck it up. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I don't know what your idea of Hunter is, but it's not all academic. It's not much different than other schools. It's just that kids are smarter in average, so when they do the school work in classroom, they can do higher level of work together. [ Reply | More ]

But I will answer you. The suburbs closest to NY are mainly wealthy, because that is the only people who can afford the houses. The towns are heavy on bankers, because they make a lot of money. You get a smattering of lawyers, insurance brokers, doctors, ex professional athletes...but you have some normal garden variety wealthy people as well. The wives do not need to concern themselves with lawn care, house maintenance, cleaning etc because they are wealthy enough to outsource. This gives them a fair amount of time to exercise, focus on their appearance, decorating their homes, shop etc. Does this make them bad people? No, it does not. There are jerks everywhere. I live in one of these burbs and find the people perfectly nice. Are some of the women shallow? For sure. Is everyone? Absolutely not. The towns are large enough that you can find friends like you [ Reply | More ]

I've lived in two UMC suburbs of NYC -- one in NJ, the other in Westchester. IME, the NJ SAHMs were more likely to be less interested in the city and what it could offer. One said to me she tried to avoid going into the city at all costs. The Westchester SAHMs were more likely to take their kids into the city and enjoy going to restaurants and shows. And they weren't afraid to let people know they had advanced degrees, whereas in NJ, one SAHM admonished me when I said to a mutual friend that we'd gone to the same business school. "I don't tell people I have an MBA". It wasn't the first words out of my mouth -- it just seemed like a natural way to say how we knew each other. [ Reply | More ]
