  • It depend on the person your trying to be freinds with. I have no problem, but you have to make sure you can trust that person with your business. Me as a person loves to make new friends cause my old friends kind of diss me. But I rather have friends that I'm on the same page on.

  • No real problem for me. I meet most of them at my kids schools, school events, fund raisers, after school sports, and things like that. Yes they do last.

  • It's really easy for me to make new friends. Generally speaking they remain friends, but every once in awhile I think someone is great, then I find out they just aren't good people/friends. That doesn't stop me from meeting new people though!!

  • Sometimes it is harder for me than others. Or, I should say, some PLACES it's harder for me than others. We moved to the mid-south 3 years ago. I still haven't made a friend that I consider close. Lots of friendly acquaintences, but no one to hang out with regularly.

  • Much harder now that i am older. When i was around 18, i could make friends anywhere, any time. But, I'm much more picky with the folks i let in my life these days. Being a mom has totally changed my outlook on friends & people. I choose much more wisely now & i don't trust as easily as i used to.

  • It is difficult for me because i am shy around new people. I am very laid back as well and well I need someone to be the same way or i feel like I'll be judged. I have met moms that I have nothing in common with and I can't fake to be someone I'm not. I have met a great mom on here and she lives about 25 minutes from me. Now she's my new bff. We have so many things in common. I also signed up to the meetup.com and I met another friend there.

  • Well some would say i have a ton of friends however i consider them acquaintances.. To me friends (what people call bff) are the ones i share the details of my life with. That is difficult for me to find.
