Hi im 26 i and i had and account with cm sometime ago but i close it, i decided to comeback, and i just want to vent, because even thought as i as was growing up i was shy and it wasn't so easy for me to make new friends i did made a few awesome friends that are still my friend even thought now we live far from each other, but now its been almost five year and in this five years i have live in 3 different cities because my husband is in the navy and i haven been able to make friends, in work i usually work with just guys, and i have been going to few Church's but i never find any friends even though i go to church for God it would be nice to have some friends and go out , and now i thought that i had finally met some new friends and today its my birthday and she said that she would take me out for dinner, she never called and it really makes me sad, my husband its very good with me and we are very in love and we have a beautiful son but i just miss having friends, does any have any good ideas , or feel the same way?

I am the same way.  It's hard as an adult to make friends.

Me too! I always think there is something wrong with me. I meet someone and things seem as if they are going to work out and they never seem to blossom into anything. I always feel like I am missing something. I feel blessed to have what I have and am thankful for the family I do have but I would like some ladies my age to confide in, go out with, have coffee with and vent to.

You can tell more about a person by what he says about others than you can by what others say about him.

Yeah, i feel the same way and the same thing happens to me i meet some people and it seems like a friendship is going to blossom but it doesnt and i wonder if there is something wrong with me, i mean i think that im very normal and that i have a pretty family but i maybe i will never know why

I am right there with you. I am also having a hard time finding friends. I have 1 but she's going to move away soon. We're military too and I am living at til place since 4 years, go to story time in the library, to the pool in summertime, parks and still nothing. Mostly it's because they either wear their husbands rank (I don't, I could care less which rank someone is or which branche) or it's because I don't fit in their pictures (I am from Germany originally and raise my kids bilingual).

I don't have many close friends either. I have only about 3 close friends.
