[ - ] In my late 30s. Spent most of my earlier years being insecure and therefore ruining any budding or existing friendships. Now most people, including myself, have kids and commitments and it is harder to make new, real friendships. Especially because well, most other people already have existing friendships.

It's never too late to make new friends. That's what I'm telling myself now. I'm in my early 40's, finding I don't really connect with most of my neighbors and fellow moms, and that I have little in common with friends from high school and college. That said, I've made efforts to reconnect with a couple of old friends with whom I lost touch during the intense parenting years. But even that is kind of like making new friends, because we've all changed in the space of 10 years. [ Reply | More ]

^actually, once I went back to work and dc's started at new schools with a new group of moms, I met some people who could be close friends down the road. Changing the group made all the difference. As for finding the time, that's hard, but you find a way. [ Reply | More ]

It's hard though. As we get older people make less of an effort, I think, to make new friends. Usually bc they already have a bunch and it takes time. I really try, but it's been hard. I also have three young kids so schedules and logistics can get in the way. Even if we did manage a play date, conversations during play dates are touch and go and if the kids don't play well together it usu turns out to be a deal breaker. I hope I am not sounding pessimistic. I am earnestly trying. I admit to not being the most socially savvy person! [ Reply | More ]
