Why is it so hard to find people you have things in common with at 30?? Its so hard to make friends when you are married with kids.

Right there with ya. I'm not married but have 2 teenagers, and most of my "friends" are just now getting married and starting their families. Come to think of it, I really dont have any friends that I talk to regularly.

Yes friends become acquaintences as life changes.

i am not sure i have asked my self the same question many times.. i guess its just we are so busy and just get caught up in the moment and just really don't have time to focus much on developing good friendships.. i often here others say things like "if it work in my schedule", and things like that... so that plays a big roll i think.. on the other hand there's many that just don't give others a chance for one reason or another.. but it does help to have things in common with others.. like on my street theirs a few mom's one is adhd the other and alcoholic and the other just doesn't care so what do you do.. me i keep to my self and help if its asked of me and i can do what they ask...confused

What's your definition of a friend? I have diferent people in my life that provide me with different feelings. I still talk to my high school peeps via Facebook but rarely if ever do I see them...they provide encouragement & understanding of someone our age group (35) gets. I hang out with family a lot and enjoy their company and the woman like to get together for daytrips or playdates. My son has me meeting up with his friend's parents more now. Two in particular are going through almost the exact same thing as we are which is creating a bond between us...same age firstborns and pregnant w/ baby #2!
I think you won't find the perfect friend for life but many friends over the course of a lifetime that help you get through life events. Also, what you get is sometimes what you put into a relationship. If you don't have time to hear a friends woes or not there when she needs you...you can't expect her to be there for you. Besides my bestest friend of all is my husband!

 I can dig it. I don't have any people I can call friends in my life @ this point.
