Re: Need some friends

Me too. Making friends at this stage (48yo/SWF) is very hard. I told my therapist that it's like I moved but I didn't.


I have made nice acquaintances by going to various Meetup groups. Look up Meetup.com and take a look. It can be really helpful and low pressure. I hope to gain some real friends there eventually! I sometimes go out to dinner with much older people in my apartment building which nice and low key. I don't know that we are friends or just acquaintances which is fine with me. I think we all just need some human contact more than anything so it's ok!



I'm always curious about others having no friends thing since I am going through it too. I had great friends but I hit the wall/had a breakdown and don't talk to anyone from my "former life."

Re: Need some friends

Same here 38 single male. I have almost zero friends. And the few who are friendly towards me i never hang out with. Some i see once or twice a year. i joined my local ADHD adult group. But nobody shows up. I had hoped i would meet some nice people there. I have always struggled to make friends and keep them. I love the comment it's like you moved but didn't. I feel that way towards the people i "know". I'ts like i don't see them for months and when we do hang out i'm like "who the hell are you" haha. And i want real friends. People who will go catch a movie or go out to eat and chat. Just normal stuff. And I often meet people who are just terrible. I can't even tell you the number of times I have been asked for money. Either way you go it destroys the friendship. You say no then they stop talking to you. You say yes they never ever pay you back. Why oh why is it so hard to just have a small circle of friends?

Re: Need some friends

I was picked on bullied made fun of in school.soo i put a wall up n avoided people very apprehensive of people to this day as they all start out ok n alot of them end up being weird very quick.Any way I did my own stuff thru my 20s until I got to my late 30s.I don't know what changed or clicked but one night it hit me like a ton of bricks that I had no one barely to kick around with and it really really depressed me that I let it get that far being oblivious of things...I spent months back in 02trying to find a adhd group only to find out the local hospitals don't have any of those support groups I ain't driving 50 miles for one pfft nope...
