    Hi you all and greetings from Finland 😀 I really would love to find new friends abroad as I miss speaking in English. I had a cousin in USA, but since he died I have not had any English speaking friends. So if you would like to get to know me or know something about Finland, please contact me :)

    I had an amazing conversation with someone in Michigan today- a new kindred spirit I met through my online class. She and I have similar pasts and goals, so it was exciting to compare notes and challenge each other on our goals. Continuous growth, empowering friendships, expansion of potential and freedom to be one's self! Such a rich and blessed discussion. I think I've met a new friend- and even though I'm on the West Coast, my far away friends give me excuses to travel!!

    So I chatted for a half an hour with the clerk at Turkey Hill. Almost made me late for work. It was so great to talk to someone my age. What about a bit of this and that. It just felt good to he social. To have a human other than hubby CARE about what I say. Shoot it gave me a tiny glimmer of hope.....sigh

    Ok this hard. I used to make new friend so easily. Some true seismic shifts in life caused a lot of old friendships to die. Then I moved 3 hours away. I am a non-driver. I have NOTHING in common with anyone here so far. I have been here two years!

    Afraid of being hurt again. Despite having a great hubby I AM LONELY really lonely.
    So trying something TOTALLY new and reach out to positive people.

    This site seems perfect.

    Sooooo hello hello! So nice to meet you.

      @sashasteedly In a way, it's a little bit comforting to me to hear that even though you have a husband, you're totally lonely (I'm sorry you're lonely though and don't wish it on you!) because sometimes I feel like if I had a husband/boyfriend/person in my life I wouldn't be so lonely. I moved to a new town a year ago and totally thought I'd be in a different place socially than I am now. I totally relate to your situation!

      I work nights, don't drink or sleep around or go clubbing (which seems to be all that the people my age do). I was making progress I felt like, but now I just feel stuck.

      There is something super comforting about considering and making steps toward goals and turning your attention to tasks that interest you during a time like this, so I'm totally embracing this site for now, it's fun!

        @oyeathatgirl It's a nice suggestion but I'll implore you to have someone to talk to, someone U can share Ur heart with, someone that can relief Ur heart from heavy thoughts...you know problem shared is half solved and besidesdomeone might develop mental sickness like depression which is more dangerous. Am talking from experience. Can we be friends?

    I video chatted with a new friend I've never met before in California tonight that I met through a class I'm taking- it was great and we will hopefully continue to chat in the near future!

    Now my very best friend in the world is pregnant at 40. I am happy for her, but I am also a little like FML. It is selfish, but I don't want to see her change like my other friends have once they started having kids. I guess I will - no, I know I will - focus on being the best friend and godmomma I can be! Now I really do need to ramp up finding new friends. Maybe I will start being active with meetups again.
