Companionship...: ...Isn't a great reason to have a baby. Having a baby is a huge commitment and responsibility, and can make you even more isolated from adults - because you're stuck at home all day with the kid. If you think your loneliness will be solved by having a baby, it won't. Exhaust your non-baby options first: online groups, joining an athletic class or club, taking a class, match.Com, etc.
