@mollz0621:  Work, my FI’s improv and comedy groups, friends-of-friends…it is harder once you’re out of college, but not impossible.

DH’s jobs always seem to bring us friends – mine not so much (different field and my coworkers are almost all older). Friends of friends, as well.

I met most of my newer friends in adulthood through rugby and running.  One of my closest girlfriends is someone I did a LOT of running with- we trained for two half marathons and a full marathon together!  It was so fun getting to know her… I mean, it takes several hours to run 20 miles, so of course you chat while you’re running then you HAVE to eat something after, so you chat over brunch too! 

Darling Husband plays rugby with an adult recreation league (I used to play in college so I understand the game & the culture around it) so I’ve become good friends with several of his teammates and their significant others as well.

To be honest, I’ve made some pretty good friends in real life here on the Bee too!  I’ve met a handful of them in person, and chat regularly with a small handful of them too.  Those ladies knew I was pregnant before I told my husband!

Mostly friends of friends. But I’ve met some great ones just through daily life (a teller at my bank has since become a close friend of mine) and drinking/sports teams.
