Find activities and things that interest you. I mean, you won't have much in common with the person you meet at the rock climbing wall, when you don't rock climb. lol Also, in order to have friends you have to BE a friend. Are you friendly towards others to get the ball rolling? Sometimes just breaking the ice can be the toughest thing. We can all be a little insecure at times thinking things like "they'll think I'm weird if I say/do ___," when the reality is, the other person is probably dealing with similar insecurities. You just never know about people until you get to know them. And, DON'T judge them by their appearances. I say this, not because I assume you would, but because these are things that I have learned through personal experience. :-) Good luck, mama....now go make some friends!
