@missapis: I’m so sorry to hear that! Join something fun – like a book club, a running club, a something you like club. Reach out to people! Good luck!

Oh no I’m sorry you feel this way. I know exactly how it feels. My man and I moved up North last year for work. We have lived here for an entire year and I have no real friends here. I’ve tried being friends with a couple of girls here, but since it’s a small town there is just too much drama that I don’t want to be apart of. It’s tough, but I just spend time with FI and his brother and I try to keep in touch with friends back home. Nothing beats a good relaxing night with some girlfriends and a glass of wine though πŸ™

I second joining a club or group of some sort. Unfortunately the town I am in only has Church groups and mommy groups, so I’m out of luck there. If you are somewhere larger though you should look into something that follows your interests. You won’t know until you try it out!

Good luck πŸ™‚ Things always turn around and I’m sure they will for you as well. I just do my best to keep my head up and chat with my girlfriends back home as much as possible.

OH wow, how mean! I’m sorry that guy made you feel unwelcome. Well honestly, I’ve been ‘shut out’ of groups before and even though it stung at the time, I look back and realize I”m so much better off for it. Unless you’re a terrible person (which I doubt you are), no one should ever be shut out like that, what’s to say he won’t ever treat his ‘real’ friends with such disrespect? I think real friends are open and warm and inviting at least that’s what I’ve learned in my old age.

I say stick it out for real friends. Get involved with volunteering, join a book club. People you click with will come along and it will grow organically.

I find as I get older though and especially now that I’m married, friendships just aren’t the same as they used to be. I still love my friends like I always did, but I’m not as close with them anymore.

Boo πŸ™ People suck sometimes. Sorry to hear your friend is moving away, that’s disappointing. I agree with the advice of a PP. DH and I are in a similar situation and I’m thinking about joining a soccer league, or some type of fitness class to meet some people. Maybe once spring rolls around there’ll be some new groups available/more active with the nicer weather? Its hard when work isn’t a good resource and you’re in that in between life stages kinda phase.

Hang in there πŸ™‚
