Newlyweds, transitions and friends
I'm a newlywed, both of us are in our early 40's and it's a first marriage for both of us. We met and have literally never been apart since. I thought we were too old for our friends (long term, decades-type friends) to turn crazy, but guess not. DH is a bit more hurt than I am over some of the antics (and his truck is still in the shop from a "friend" borrowing it). Now that things are settling down, we'd like to socialize more and obviously need to meet some new people. I'm 5 months pregnant with our 1st and wanted to join a new mom/pregnancy group, but my 1st encounter was a disaster. I encountered a hippie, yoga group who was highly judgemental towards another mom who had a bottle of formula. My dr office didn't have any classes available that weren't a 45 min. drive, so I'm still looking for something closer. Did any of you guys experience this friend transition? How did you find new people? I'm assuming this will probably resolve itself in time, but I think it's time for us to get out there and in a position to meet new people. Thoughts? BTW, I work from home exclusively for an out of state company, so I'm already at a disadvantage wrt face-to-face contact. But I do have time during the day to go to a few stay-at-home mom activities during the day.
