Having three little ones and living in a fairly new city (though I lived here years ago), it's hard to make new friends. I rely an awful lot on the internet for socialization and certainly hope that changes once I start school (of course, then I won't have time for friends!)
I meet all sorts of nice people
at the Golf course
at the health club

I have friends at work, kind of, they are people I like just fine. I just don't socialize with them. But I would help any of them if they needed it. We really seem to be so different from one another. I am getting ready to take a college correspondence course with one nurse I work with. We're doing it for moral support and will be doing the lessons at my house. Other than that, that's it.

Some are teachers, some are SAHMs, etc. I have many acquaintances, several friends, but very few good friends....and many of my good friends are online, and I have met many in person even though we met online.

I Had lots in my student days as I lived in a nurses home and it was cool cos they understood all the new and often frightening experiences I was going through. Now most of my friends are Mums and as I live in a small village I see them at school events etc. NURSE i meet at work are often so stressed they have not got time for social niceitiesLast edit by Lowson on Apr 24, '04 : Reason: spelling
