  • I TOTALLY know what you mean! I just moved here to Poconos PA about 3 months ago and its like pulling teeth to make friends, luckily I have made a few friends at my job but everyone seems to have their own ''group' or 'click' and although people up here are all 'transplants' from other areas such as nj or ny, they all seem to snide newcomers, that is my personal oppinion so yes I see what you mean when people seem to not want to get to cozy with you, it sucks doesnt it lol, Im a VERY friendly person but its like people dont like talking to stangers I guess lol

  • Same with above. I have social anxiety.. but then I'm picky with people. I don't open up to just anyone, and am very judgemental when it comes to most females & their pickyness and snooty attitudes. I'm the girl thats friends with all the guys. I make the drinks and joke just as crudely as they do. I love it.

  • Awww. Yep, I totally understand. Hell, I've been here in Seattle for 10 years and have almost yet to meet anyone I really adore like friends from college. That said, it's better now that my kids are in Kindergarten and I'm meeting more moms. Overall, I think people are strange though. And no, I don't think it's me. Everyone I run into, bleeds me with their problems and stuff, I am so over it. Where are the normal girls?

  • I have acquaintances, not close friends. I think I'm just boring, have too many personal issues and income and schedule doesn't allow me to go out to movies and stuff like that. That's why I come to cafe mom.
