Hi I'm 25 live in Blackpool I have a family but we are not from the area been here over 10 years and still don't have any friends I find it very difficult to make any Blackpool is a difficult place anyway as nearly everybody isn't from here and leave 😐I work 30 hours a week but it's a job you work alone in so no colleagues would love to start socialising with people in the same situation just a cup of tea and a cake real adult conversation and not being stuck inside or taking the kids to clubs any other mums out there having the same problem?

I'm not nearby but have you tried the MUSH app and also mummysocial?

Also try Meetup for non mum things?

Good luck x

Hi Dogstan I'm not really local enough to you- I'm a bit north of Lancaster, and work between school pickups so hard to get down to Blackpool. For some encouragement I moved up here, to the lancaster area, 9 years ago and would say it's only now I have a few friends who are real friends rather than aquaintances. I met them through my children and good luck I guess, though I was starting to get to know people in my pre -dc days through are running club.
I'm about to turn 34 and never realised how hard it is to find friends as an adult.

I hope you do meet some like minded people. I'm trying hard to hang onto the fee friends I have now and it's easier said than done with multiple dcs, jobs and families to balance. Good luck!

Hi there, its not very often I look at these boards but today I have and saw your message. I am in Lytham. I sympathise totally - don't find people here very friendly - maybe because they are all too "posh" esp in Lytham!. I'm a naturally friendly, warm person (I think!) but people keep you at arms length. Its harder now my son is at high school, but no-one really talked much at primary even though I felt I made an effort! Would love to meet up - just one thing - I'm 51! (Makes no difference to me!)
