Friends

I am having a really hard time finding and keeping friends that live close enough I can see on a regular basis.  Don't get me wrong, I have a few really excellent friends that I get to see almost every day because I'm lucky enough to work with them.  However, that usually means they've had enough of me by the end of the day/week that they're ready for a break. ;)

Tonight I found out that one of my newly found friends is moving... in two weeks!  I feel totally gipped (this is how the mac says I should spell this word... blogger says its gypped and I'm to lazy to go look in an actual dictionary!).

I mean, I've known her for the last 5 years that I've lived here but never had a chance to/made time to get to know her.  So I guess it's technically my fault that I didn't realize how great she is before now.  The last 6 months we've worked together at church in the same organization and I just  ADORE her!  I'm so sad I didn't get to know her better sooner. I'm lame. Phoenix, you're getting a really awesome new family in two weeks!

I'm going to start to have abandonment issues if people I like a whole lot keep leaving me!

I always find it hard to make true friends because it takes a long time for me to trust people. I have friends and acquaintances, but very few close friends.

Sorry your friend is moving away. That's always hard. And there's always Skype!

It's so hard to make friends as an adult. About 10 months ago I met someone I wanted to be friends with.. and as a 25 year old woman I called my mom and asked how do you become friends with someone. It was so much easier in school!

It's hard to make friends as an adult. I'm 38 and still struggling to make friends. I have a great job and I like my co-workers but they don't want to have anything to do with me. I have tried to make friends with them by going out to lunch and exchanging cell phone numbers but it's just not happening. It hurts because I miss having friends to talk to and hang out with from time to time. Everytime I put my trust in someone they let me down or they shove me away. I'm trying to stay positive that it gets better and I'm sure in your situation it will get better. Just don't give up.
