    New In Bergen County Nj

    Hello, I just moved from France and I want to make friends in my area. Because I haven't got a car yet, it's hard for me to move (I take the bus ! ) I would like to have friends in my area. I would be so nice to have someone to talk with, and do things as friends. All my friends...

    I Love Livermore, But Don't Know Anyone!

    Hello! I recently got married 5 months ago and moved out here to be closer to my husband and his family. I don't know anyone in this town, but I love it! I live in Livermore, CA. Downtown is awesome, and it's a "small town" feel without the actual "small town"...

    The Changes I Have Been Through,

    I have good friends, but most of them are long-distance friendships. It is very hard sometimes. I wonder why they can't be closer. It is so hard sometimes. I want them to be close to me. Is there anyone that wants to get to know me? I am looking for friends to chat with close to...

    It's Odd

    I used to travel a lot. I had friends in all different kinds of places. We called each other and met up all the time when we were in town. Good friends, bad friends, artsy friends, athletic friends...except for the intellectual snobby ones. Or the extremely preppy stiff...

    It Can't Be Me

    I am a very friendly person. Although I suffer from social anxiety I still make an effort to make friends because once I do and the person I am talking to seems friendly, it puts my anxiety at ease. I try to hide the fact I have social anxiety and...

    Disposable Income

    To have friends where I live I would need a disposable income. In order to go out and do anything I would need to spend money. Just to do practically nothing, I would need money that's not allocated for anything else. Everytime I meet someone, the question always is, "What would...

    So Lonely

    I moved to England from Texas back in 2006.  Before I moved, people on-line told me that I'd have no problem making friends because I am American.  I'm currently at university and don't fit in at all.  A lot of the people are about 4 or 5 years younger then me...

    No Gal Pals

    What can I say - military. It is 1 week shy of a year since I've moved to my current town and I feel so lonely and used. I'm late 20s, no kids, and learning that in the military, this is abnormal (and I'm often treated that way). Before becoming a military spouse, I had plenty...

    I live halfway around the world from anyone that I could possibly consider a friend.  I keep thinking making these moves will force me to come out of my shell, but it's just not working and now I really have no one to talk to about real stuff.  However, I really don't...

    My boyfriend moved to Chicago to be with me.

    We've been together for a few years and he still hasn't made any friends here. We have no couple friends we can hang out with. I'd really like to find a couple or two that we can go on double dates with, have road trips, or just hang out in a group without anyone feeling left...

    But true. See, my community is not only very small. It's mostly retirees, relatives of myself either through blood or marriage. Most of them are awful for gossiping & I just can't trust any of them. It makes for WynHaven to be very lonely. She has no one to run to when her...
