I think the comments here do not reflect the reality of most moms. I have had so many messages from people saying this is exactly how they feel. I have many, many friends online, that I have "known" for years, but have never met. It is the local community that is lacking...If you already have a group, then of course, you are hanging out in your "group." But, what about moms who are new to an area or new moms, they cannot go to the park and find another mom another. Not everyone has a group of friends to text. Not everyone lives in a city with a lot of meet ups going on either. I think it is awesome that some women have a great local community but it really is not the reality to most moms.
