My entire life I have never had many friends. Since i finished high school and had my now 2 year old daughter I feel more alone then ever the only people I see are my very few coworkers my parents and my bf but I don't really have anyone to talk to. Does anyone have any advise on how to have friendships with a kid as a single mother?

I can't speak for specifically as a single mom...but I met most of my good close friends through playgroups for my kids when they were little. And, friends, as adults are different. Seems like becoming "close" takes so much longer. I have known them now for 9-12 years and it wasn't till the past 5-6 years. Do things you enjoy.

Check meetup.com, check locally published community calendars, local independent newspapers, ask other moms at parks, ask daycare workers....start looking!

I'm a friendly guy. Only problem is I don't talk much. I have only one friend in my first 19-20 years. Now I lost him. Now I have a lot more friends (but not that much), now I am living with my few friends. But I don't like them much, I prefer to be alone now. It's better when you don't have friends
