Being a friend takes work for me because I tend to be shy and private around people I don't know and I find it difficult to open up. When I take the risk and go for it though I seldom regret it. Great post.


Being an acquaintance comes easily to me, but being a real friend comes with much more difficulty. I don't do "girls night out" or "girls only vacations" and so many of my friends live for those things. I choose not to shop for entertainment or "do lunch"(because we're paying down debt). My values have changed so much and my life is so home-centered, it is a struggle for me. I'm working on it...


I'm just not a good friend maker... It has taken this move so far away from all of our family and friends to see that.

Lots of people tell me that having the children makes it easier to make friends. I don't think that is the case, every time.

Children, or no children I find it difficult to click with people... And what makes it harder is being the newbie and trying to make your way into a group of already clicked women who have a history together...

The few friends I have made here so far, and there aren't many, only 4, are all in the same "place" as my family which helps.

I am going to stick with "quality, no quantity" on this topic. It works for me :)
