Friendship Follow-up

Thanks to everyone who commented on yesterday’s post.  It is nice to know I’m not alone, but I feel sad that there are others of you out there that struggle with the same thing.  So, two things I’ve done today.  One, I found this book, The Friendship Crisis: Finding, Making, and Keeping Friends When You’re Not a Kid Anymore and I have it on my wish list.  Maybe it will help some of you out there, too. Two, I contacted two friends that had asked me about getting together while I was away at home.  So, there ya go.  There’s more work to be done in this area, and those of you who have offered a friendly ear may hear from me soon.  And, if any of you want to do the same, I’m pretty easy to find.   I’m also considering calling up a couple of friends who live close by to see about having drinks or something.  And I have some other possibilities as well.  As bj said in the comments, I think I need to make it a project or I’ll just be sitting around by myself for a while.

  1. The best thing I ever did when I needed to make friends was start a book club. I did this up in Philly, and I did this a year after I moved to Atlanta, even though I had just had another baby. The friends I’ve made through book clubs are my friends for life.
