Hi, my name is Jennifer and I'm 33 and I'm not married and have no kids. But I'm in a relationship with an amazing man. But I feel like there is something missing in my life...well I know what it is. I don't have many close friends I can trust anymore. Actually I have no close friends anymore.

maybe the ability to relate to people is emotional, but the meaningful conversations are mental? i think it's possible to have one or the other.

so you are proactive in trying to meet new people, and also really busy :)

i wonder what it is that you're really looking for - people to hang out with on saturday nights? or a group of people that you'd want to invite to a party (or something like that).

i did the ditch-the-negative-friends-and-start-over thing, too, and i don't regret it at all. i think it's better to hang out alone than to be with people you truly don't like just for the sake of having someone to hang out with.

You might be right about the emotional vs mental aspect, I suppose I hadn't pondered that before.

I think I consider the girls I go to school with as friends, if they lived in town here I'm sure we would hang out more, but one lady is married with a teenage son,and doesn't live in town, she only comes to town for school,another girl I go to school with doesn't drive and lives out of town too, so we only see each other at school. If I drove I'm sure it would be easier to make plans with them.
I have suggested going to the gym with my bf and he's all for it. But the cost of a gym membership is more then we can afford right now. Especially since we're in the process of saving up to move.
I'm not interested in partying and being around drunken morons, I don't think that's much fun at all. I never said their was a problem with hanging out with married, divorced or widowed people, I have hung out with people in those categories before.
