I would look into book clubs in your area, maybe sponsored by library or coffee houses, check out hobbies in your local area….walk around your neighborhood many times local shops will have people post events…check out events like on craigslist also try meet ups…hopes this helps….sorry other fellow bees haven’t provided suggestions

You could try volunteering or playing intramural or club sports?

I take part-time art classes and make friends there, always.  I suggest taking classes in something that interests you.  I also am mainly friends with single women, or women that don’t have kids, or women that are very laid back about it- as in- it can be hard if they are obsessed with their children to the point it is every.thing.about.them.  I have one friend that I have drifted from because once she had kids it was ALL ABOUT THE KIDS.  I love kids, but she really lost herself- she was like that when we were in college and she got a dog though- so I think that is just her.  She didn’t want to go out because she didn’t want to leave the dog alone. :/

I have a friend with three kids, however, that is super laid back and has her own life and interests aside from her kids.

I found a huge difference once I got married- well- I was engaged at 25 and felt more settled than other single friends, but did not have children.  I also moved to a new place after college (during this time).  So, it has been challenging, but I also find I don’t like to go out as much.  I am Boyfriend or Best Friend with Darling Husband and occassionally go out or have a cookout, but am not nearly as social as I used to be.  I also always feel like I have to take Darling Husband, and that is why it is nice to be in classes where I can meet other women and talk my head off.  🙂
