How to Mom Date

Can we just all agree that as an adult it is SO hard to meet friends.  Once you become a mom you have an even bigger layer of self consciousness about “mom shaming” to deal with which adds to the difficulty of making friends!

how to make mom friends

Well after 16 months I can say how truly important it is to find mom friends that have kids close to your children’s ages.  You go through the ups and downs together and can lean on one another for advice. This is really important to me since my mom isn’t here to give me advice.

But how do you meet the mom friends?  Here are some tips that I have picked up since I have had Tripp!

Places to meet mom friends:

  1. Local mom groups [Facebook, Fit4mom, MOPS]
  2. Library
  3. Parks
  4. Local Play Areas [indoor playgrounds, bounce houses, gyms]
  5. Museums

Okay so you made it to some great places to meet moms but how do you talk to them?

  1. Say hello!
  2. Give a compliment! [Like I love your shoes or earrings] Be sincere!
  3. If conversation gets to flowing ask her name!
  4. Put yourself out there, say hey we should grab coffee, wine or meet up at a park sometime!
  5. Exchange numbers [and then send a text to plan a mom date]

Don’t be afraid of rejection. It happens and you wouldn’t want to be friends with someone like that anyway! The majority of moms are looking to meet other mom friends to socialize with.  Just keep trying and you will find that perfect mom group!

  1. It is not easy to find mom friends, so this article is great! I didn’t find any mom friends until my daughter started pre-school. Making small talk in the drop-off line helped make connections!

  2. Yes! Baby gym classes have been great to meet lots of families all at once (The Little Gym, Gymboree) if you have extra money. But some of my closest friends have been co-workers with young kids. I’m not quite bold enough to approach strangers yet ☺️
