Darling Husband and I are currently a LDR (only 1.5 hr away) right now. Fortunately, DH’s group of friends are very nice people and we get along great when I do see them. I’d hate to push myself onto them and start being all chummy but it seems like, I might have to do that.
Anyway, my question is…if you had to make new friends, how did you do it? And, would you feel obligated to be friends with your SO’s friends, too? I don’t want to impose and put myself right in middle of cliques/groups but how else do you join a group?

@mnp: How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time!
It’s the holidays, they’ll be having parties, potlucks, happy hour get togethers, put your ear to the ground and find out when the next one is, attend, start mingling, that means talking to EVERYONE for at least twenty minutes, after you’ve done a round, go back to the ones you still had more to say to, the ones whose interests match yours, explore that, but don’t push it…when things start to wind down, ask if they want to go to coffee/lunch/shopping in the next couple of days….if they say yes, great. At your next meet up, talk, have fun, see what’s cookin, see if there’s anyone they know who might like to…go to a spa day, an art show, a movie….just keep adding things and people…it’s easy!

@Nona99: I love that line! lol
I’ll try! It is just hard that down where Darling Husband lives there is nothing to do around there. Also, I only see them every other month, if I’m lucky.
