Why can't we all be friends? headscratch.gif

I definitely need some irl friends.  But online friends would be nice too.  In addition to invisible, I also feel isolated and alone.  It sucks.

I do too! Only in my case there are no AP moms close by -- they all live in wealthier neighborhoods that we can't afford or in neighborhoods that we wouldn't feel safe in (and still probably couldn't afford, ironically, since Berkeley is not only expensive but also high crime, lol).

I felt like this many times, but it got a little better. Now, there are a few people who notice, but I don't post as much as I did a few years ago. I remember giving my opinion or advice on something I knew about, and being totally ignored. I don't think it's on purpose, though.

 

The thing is, Mothering forums is so huge that it is way easy to fall between the cracks. I guess this thread is a sort of "fall between the cracks people" thread.

Invisible poster here. I have almost stopped posting altogether now because its so disheartening to never get recognized! Maybe I'm just too bland, not showing any personality in my posts.

Sometimes you have to use humor to keep from crying.

Thanks, heyxxmcfly! I can't take credit for creativity- it's from TS Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats. I used to read those poems to my daughters smile.gif

This fits me perfectly!

 

I like to put a positive spin on the threads I've killed.  I take it as my reply was so perfectly written and every argument so eloquently worded that no one else felt the need to contribute and left my post there in all it's glory.
