I think with all this move stuff my mind is becoming jumbled up with all kinds of things!! lol.
I know we've all struggled with the notion of *married* friends ditching us.........unfortunately I have basically lost all of my good friends in the last few years. I can't blame them really - I've had a lot of family/personal issues that have made it difficult for me to move forward, and of course my lifestyle is much different than the people I knew - with homes, husbands, financial security (I'm assuming), kids, etc..........I find that generally, people in these situations like to socialize with *like* individuals and have difficulty relating to things like bad landlords/rental situations, unemployment, dating, etc.
I'm pretty much okay on my own........I'm planning on getting out to some meet up groups once I get settled.....but there are times when I dream/obsess about these old friends, wishing things were different. I know I have to move forward, but, there are times........I had *several* close friends in university........wondering if I took that for granted. I assumed we would always be friends, regardless of the circumstances.
Have you lost any friendships that you lament over? Do you feel that your *single* status has eliminated you from any social circles?
