I just moved to Seattle in May and I'm 24 years old. I'm having a hard time meeting people that I could be friends with, mainly due to the fact that I have an 18 month old and its hard for me to get to go out at night. Usually I would go out to a bar or a club with my boyfriend and we would eventually meet people that were cool to hang out with, outside of the night scene. And because I have a baby, I tend to attract other mothers or wives who really have nothing in common with me. I haven't really connected with people from work to well. I can't really ask them if they want to go out for a drink one night or go shopping at the mall. It's only been 3 months since I've been here and I know it will take time..

Is anyone else in the same situation as I am?? I know it's hard moving and being the new person in town.. but it really does suck!!

Match.com can be pretty useful in your situation.

dyeb,

I'm not in your situation, but there are a lot of people in Seattle who you may be able to relate to. The clubs in downtown opened a new thing called "Baby Loves Disco" where the Moms go the the clubs in the middle of the afternoon with their kids in toe.

You may enjoy going to one or two of these as a chance to meet other moms who like to do activities, and for play dates with your kid.

Is the word "mating" a dirty word now? I must be behind the times.
