Awwww, i dont know how it works in the states, but dont you perhaps have any special interests or hobbies for which there is perhaps a club that you can become involved with? I know it is very daunting to be new and shy…. But perhaps the common ground of a shared interest will be an icebreaker and opportunity for new friendships to develop? After we got engaged, we toom up dancing lessons. Completely out of my comfort zone, but something we could do together. We ended up making good friends with a couple, Colette is now actually one of two good friends I have…. And we are so close, even though are dance classes ended almost nine years ago?

I agree with many others! I have a few CLOSE friends – 4 to be exact, the rest? who cares. My fiance is my best friend, my sister is my other best friend and my third best friend is my mom. Growing up I had a lot more “friends” than I do now, but it was soon enough that I realized its not about quantity but quality.

I’ll join the club. My BF is my Fiance and my sister. I have people I do some social things with but don’t consider them close friends. I do feel a bit lonely about it sometimes and I don’t know why I don’t have more friends tbh….I hadn’t thought about it much until we wrote our guest list. I have a grand total of 18 people coming to the ceremony on my side and about 7 more for the evening.

I have thought about joining some groups, but I work 2 jobs about 60 hours a week. My Fi has a daughter from his first marriage and I help with her too (she gets sad if I miss to many days with her). It’s just hard to plan something. But that might just be shy me making excuses lol
