I see so many women ask questions in here that seem like such common sense.  Then I realize that it seems like common sense to me because it's the kind of things that I've learned with and from my friends over many years.  This makes me wonder if these women have any actual friends who they can call with girl question, who they can ask anything, who would be there if they were crying.  

So do you?  Do you have friends?

I have friends who I've known ranging from 32 years to 8 years.  I have all the other types, the acquainances, the ones you only drink with, the family, but my girlfriends are very important to me.  There are at least four of them that I could call at 3am crying and say come get me and they would without a question.

I have no friends.
The closest thing I have to a friend is my sil who is my husband's sister. She is more a person I talk to on Sunday dinners.

Honestly?  No, not anymore.  The older I get the harder it is to make new friends and I've outgrown my old friends little by little.  I'm choosier about the people I want to spend time with so toxic users will be dropped fast.  It's probably why I spend so  much time online.  I was hoping to meet people when I started my new job, and sure there are people I like but it hasn't translated into anything beyond office friendliness. I am too busy with the kids after work to join a gym or club.  So right now my only real companion is my dh and the internet.

 Besides my immediate family, including my husband.  I only have a few close online friends.  I am rather introverted and it has always been hard for me to make friends.  I sometimes wish I did have more friends.

I haven't know my best friend that long but we met at school and the house next to hers went up for rent so we rented it. She's like a big sister to me.
