For the last year (in all honesty it’s probably been more) I have been going through a personal struggle that I haven’t expressed to anyone until recently and I’m not sure if it’s because 1) I’m embarrassed 2) I didn’t want to admit it or 3) I’m way too emotional to talk about it; but it is HARD to find friends who are in the same place as me – friends that are not married, don’t have kids and have similar interests.
In reality, I have a TON of great friends and I’m proud to say a lot of them have been and will continue to be life-long. These are the girls that I can easily call up, see what they are doing and have no shame inviting myself to join. But I need someone who can grab a drink after a bad day without having to make plans in advance or who can go on a random weekend road trip because the weather is amazing and it would be fun to just get away for a bit!
I completely understand that I am a rarity, but figured there has to be other girls that are in the same predicament as myself so. . .I am currently on a quest to find what seems like an impossible mission — a new friend!
I feel like I hit a new low last night – I’m not sure if it’s a low or if it’s the norm – but I went on Bumble to see what kind of girls were in the same predicament as myself. Bumble is typically a dating website that recently (or at least new-to-me) came out with BumbleBFF to find friends! I figured if so many people find relationships that way, it couldn’t hurt to try to find a friendship!
A screen shot of my BumbleBFF profile below – I’m just saying, I’d want to be friends with me 😉
Wish Me LUCK!!!
In the meantime, I have a very exciting weekend ahead that I am in DESPERATE need for after a busy week!!! I am going to watch the airshow and go to Porchfest on Saturday, then Jags game on Sunday. I plan to be outside as much as possible enjoying this amazing weather!!! HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
