@MissMonie:  I can relate hun, you are not alone. I feel like as I got older (I’m 30 now) relationships are freakin’ hard to maintain! It’s honestly hard to get the girls together, or be flexible about just stopping by and visiting. And we don’t have any kids. 

I had a similar experience with a bridesmaid. I sort of regretted having her in my wedding because I realized, wow we are just not that close. And she’s an amazing person so that made me sad 🙁  Was it me or are we just “busy”? I don’t know …


PS it’s funny you say “tonight” because it’s 8am here and I am drinking my coffee 🙂

I don’t have many female friends at all, but I can def relate with the lonely part. It’s not that I have trouble making friends, I have trouble keeping them. I’m pretty anti-social and a super introvert, and it takes a realllllllllllllllllly long time to crack my hard exterior to get to the gooey insides that are my feelings.

But, that’s totally my fault, I’ve tried being more friendly/open, but it just feels so fake for me.

@MissMonie:  Oh I’m so sorry you are going through this!! I know it can feel so isolating.


I recently moved 6 hours away from my friends and family and I learned really fast who was insterested in maintaining a friendship and who really didn’t even have time to send a bi-weekly text to say hello!

Are you able at any time to go visit your friend who moved away? It might be nice to get together and take a little break from all of the craziness going on back home. It would be like a mini vacation!

@MissMonie:  That’s too bad about that first bridesmaid in particular. Kind of sucky what she’s doing. Weddings are just plain stressful. I know it’s supposed to be this great time, and sometimes it is, but it can also be stressful. I remember getting to a point where I just wished it was over! (I’m previously married) BUT that day was one of the best days of my life so just try to hang on!

As for friends, I have unfortunately moved around the US a LOT. I’m older. It’s very hard to make friends. I was actually thinking about that lately. I’m not in college anymore so I can’t meet people there like younger people do. All the friends I’ve ever made in all these places I’ve moved are either too far away now or we’ve drifted too far apart. What my mom did was joined a book club, church, some volunteer groups etc and now she has tons of friends. How about we do that?

I feel the EXACT same way! You are not alone. This website has helped me tremendously. Apparently this is somewhat normal depending on several factors and age being one.  This is the most important part of our lives not theirs. This is not their priority. I cant wait for it all to be over. It has triggered a lot of emotions in me, friends, family etc.  I thnk we need to reach out to those people we least expect to be here. I have received more support from strangers.
