I have a hard time getting friends, and a harder time keeping them. It's not that I don't get along with people. I feel like I can't find someone like me. It's not that I can't handle someone with different view points, I LOVE to argue, but the other person has to be able to argue, then it's lunch time so arguement over, hard feelings, where to for lunch?
I make friends with people, and then 2 years later I realize they are super racist but were hiding it or whatever. (that has happened more than once!)
Do you think I'm being to picky? Should I settle for a friend that I have to constantly battle and stand up for myself. Or I have to nod and smile and not say that I think they are compleltly ignorant.
This never bothered me before I had kids, before if I had no one to do stuff with I did it myself. But I don't feel it is fair to my baby to only get to hang out with me b/c I can't make friends. He deserves to have lots of people in his life to make him well rounded and all that.
I wouldn't settle for a life partner, but I want a friend for life that I can stand to keep :(
