Stranger In My Town

Ive lived in this city for a year and a half now. The isolation is killing me. I am strapped at home w/ my two great children but at the same token I can never get away.

There is a need on maslows heirarchy of needs and this happens to be one of them, the need to belong. I lost it on friday.

I had a couple of friends but since they were single they didn't find much in common w/ me. I am not the susie home maker type either so those woman rarely appeal to me and i feel we have nothing in common in that situation. It is a lonely place here.
