another one bites the dust.

this past week was a doozy. a second friend announced her pregnancy, while another yet had an actual baby.

i need to step up my friend-finding mission.

have any of you had success with local childfree meetups or anything like it? i need to know. pros and cons.


no new friend for me.

In about me, childfree, heh, lessons learned, new moms on November 3, 2013 at 5:56 am


i thought she was the one. my new friend who just moved to town. she’s fun, she’s funny, she likes the same things i do, except for ONE MAJOR PROBLEM. she’s pregnant.

it’s such a big time letdown. i’d had such high hopes for us together.

time and again, just when i think i’ve learned my lesson, i go and do it again. sure, I knew she wanted kids. but it won’t be for a while, i told myself. i can get a good couple of years out of her, i lied to myself.

fool me once, shame on me. fool me twice, i need to check myself. no, from here on out i’m going to be absolutely strict with my new friend policy.

must have:
– no kids.
– no interest in ever having kids.
– not chosen a career path that focuses on working with kids (i.e. teaching)

i think I’ve got it now. finally.
