We are so alike Anne - those first few paragraphs could have been written about me. When the boys were younger and all the new mum's were busy socialising I used to feel like there was something wrong with me because I didn't like big get togethers and noisy nights out. Now I feel more relaxed about it and feel more comfortable saying no and just meeting up with my closer friends 1:1. I love those friendship quotes you have used. Xxx
Making friends as an adult is really hard - I can count the number of friends I have on hand - the ones that would be there for me no matter what and vice versa. And I'm that person who is jealous when others say they're meeting friends for this or that - my best mate lives 200 miles away now, and I miss her xx
I have different friends for different things - there are some I can have a fun night out with but who I'd not have a heart to heart then there are some who I know I could call at 3am if I needed - not that I ever have! But I could. I appreciate them in in their different ways, and hope that they feel the same about me!
I find it really hard to trust people after making a friend that turned out to be really toxic. I have one great Mum friend and I cherish her
I think it is hard in today's society to make friends. I have trust issues and find it difficult to connect with people now, I used to be really good at it! Maybe it's a 'grown up' thing.
I find it very hard to make friends, I was great as a kid but then I hit my teens and nope can't do it since lol. x
This is a great post. I have some amazing friends all over the UK and one or two I feel I can just pop round too when I need too x
I find it very hard to make friends now, especially since having my son. I'm glad I've got a few good 'Mummy' friends as most of my non parent friends have drifted away x
good friends are like gold dust aren't they! I've only got a couple of 'best' friends but feel so lucky to have them x
I love the idea of friends you haven't met yet: ) I think your circle of friends does change as you get older.
