Yup, I’m right there with you. The closest female friend that I have (who I do chat with and hang out with on the VERY rare occassion) lives three hours away. It SO sucks.
I’d LOVE to have a few good girl friends who I could hang out with, do girly-type stuff with, and visit, but, nope, it just doesn’t happen. I have a few girls I chat with frequently at work, but I don’t hang with them outside work. RARELY chat with them outside work too.
🙁 It can get depressing, especially when my Fiance wants to have a guys night out and I’m stuck at home with the kids (say it with me: “jealousy” and “green-eyed monster” rears ugly head) AND I have no girls I can hang with. 🙁
I soooo can sympathize and empathize with you.
(I will say it’s REALLY good to know I’m not the only one who finds creating friendships with girls difficult!)

I know how you feel my friends are scattered around the city–and to be honest I have come to not trust women very much and they seem like back stabbers sometimes. I dont think you should have a bridal shower if you dont want to dont let anyone pressure you into anything you dont want to do ok. it will only raise your stress levels.
I say if want too seek friends join meetup.com and look for groups in your area hosting meetups that interest you its a great way to meet people who are also looking to meet friends.

I dealt with the shower issue by notifying anyone who dared suggest one that I would not attend if they held one. That solved that issue!
As for wedding attendants, you could do without them. Or you could select your closest male friends.
So if you want to get out more and meet people in your area, that’s fine. But don’t feel like you have to do it for the wedding.
