Choosing the right people

May 17, 2009 at 6:25 pm (Bored, Friends, Melodie)

So, as most of you know – I have been trying to make new friends. As a 30 something single parent, this is not an easy task. I’m awkward in social situations and am so desperate for friends that I think I may smell like desperation. I know what you’re thinking… “how could a totally awesome person have such a hard time finding people to hang out with?” The truth is, I don’t really know.

I’m pretty simple – laid back – funny – smart. All I meet are losers! I thought I met some girls (potential friends) a few weeks ago, but they turned out to be ridiculous (and so very high school)! I get along better with guys, but all the guys I’ve met want me to sleep with them. Not going there. It’s really difficult to meet genuine people who are truthful and fun.

So here I am… on this quest to figure out who I am and on a quest to find some people to hang out with. Wish me luck.

    I have had this problem. I’ve been really lucky to meet awesome people through my blog whose personalities really mix well with mine. Unfortunately, they all live all over the country, with only a handful in California.

    I feel the same way about the stench of desperation with dating. As cool and casual as I try to be, sometimes I think it’s written all over my face. Sigh.

    If you lived closer, I would totally hang out with you all the time and make you regret wishing you had more friends. 🙂
