Great!

Hi! 

Real friends seems hard to meet/find. I know that by experience. If you want I would love to talk? 

  

I'm myself in the process trying to meet/find people who really are a good friend. And by a good friend I mean people who cares about you, support you, and are honest with you. I feel that these are not to high demands. But I wonder where these people are? 

So I'm right now as clueless as you. 

Love/ Feliss 

Lets get started tell me something about you and maybe we can sxchange e-mails!

Well, I'm 30 years old and in between jobs at the moment, because I moved back "home" from Britain. I sure could exchange email with you. Write and tell me who you are to my e-mail: theroses75@yahoo.se 

  

Looking forward to your e-mail.

Difficulty Forming Friendships

I'm pretty sure why I have trouble making friends.  I'm extremely shy and people tend to think I'm a snob.  Also, I don't like to express my opinion just to agree with someone else.  My main problem is reaching out and making the first move.  I'm always waiting for the other woman to make the first move.   

  

Plus, I don't have kids, and it's hard for someone who has kids to find something in common with me.   I am divorced, but I don't like to join the bitter complaining about the exes. 

  

Let alone the self esteem issue.   Plus I live in rural Canada, which makes it hard.  I"m not a farm lady, so there's another lack of commonality.  Any advice.

I wish it were not so difficult to find nice people. the ones from my past just seem to be so selfish. everything in their lives matter but mine doesnt. I have given up looking for friends. the rejection is just too hard to deal with time after time. the lonliness is overwhelming at times.
