Where did all the sane women go?

19th August 2009 (16:10)

Why are most women judgemental, grudge holding harpies? I tried going to a couple events with my moms group but it looks like I am now persona non grata. No one would talk to me and I seemed to get the cold shoulder whenever I tried to start a conversation. I must have said something on the chat room that the ring leader didn't like . . . Which is just stupid.
The problem is that I have never been good at making friends with other women. Even when I am not putting my foot in my mouth. I just don't approach everything from an emotional standpoint. I tend to be a little more anlytical or somethign and I usually call bs when I see it. I also tend to enjoy a good debate, which other people see as being argumentative.

*sigh* I dunno . . .

I am so with you. I have tried to go to a couple playgroups and have been disgusted.

seriously! All I want is some social interaction for my kid. But if I go and don't particpate in their bitch sessions I get labeled as "snotty" or "someone who thinks she is better then the rest of us."

Why don't you guys start a mommy playgroup? I'm sure there are other ladies out there that are in the same boat as you. :)

Cause most of the cool moms we know work during the day. :(

Surely there's cool moms out there you haven't met yet... Guess the issue is getting word out and weeding the people.

Yeah I know there have to be more likeminded folks out there, but I guess I just don't think I want to kill myself trying to find them. I dunno. Maybe when I have gotten some more sleep. :P

Well there are at least the three of us right now that can start one.

I'm sure there are a few people in the anti_mom community that would be willing to meet up as well. '

I came up with a world of excuses as to why not, I honestly think i will after I get the job thing figured out. Maybe call it the "No Drama Mamas" though I am sure that name is already taken.

Altered Ego

I envy all the moms who don't work who can go on playdates during the day. Especially if those playdates include barhopping while the kids are in preschool!

If you guys put something together, let me know! Weekends are often free and regrettably sober the kids always want to get out and play. It would be nice to get together with some people from time to time!
