Probably Because I Live In The Middle Of No Where

I don't have a single friend that I talk with, go to lunch or a movie with, or even call on the phone. It's just me and my husband and our "furry kids". Only once in the past 2 years has my phone has rung when it wasn't a wrong number. I have nothing in common with the people around here, I don't hunt or fish, I don't have kids and I don't have a lot of money or a golf club membership. Most days I'm fine with the lack of people and their ensuing problems, but sometimes it gets pretty damned dull around here.

Give me your number Miss Red, I'll call every day.

I totally understand I live almost the same way with the exception of my son and new grandson and daughter inlaw moved in a couple of months ago. I am an only child and was raised by my grandparents. So I totally had to depend on myself for entertainment. We had a lot of farm animals to keep me company. Now its just me and my husband and my 2 furry kids. I enjoy this a little too much. <br />
I work come home cook dinner and well get ready for the next day. I noticed you live in Ashville, Is that Ashville, North Carolina. If so we will be traveling that way very soon. Well I would love to chat and keep a distant friendship so whenever your for a chat just let me know. Till then.....

I know how you feel. I do not have even one friend in this whole wide world. I live with one cat and she is the only person I have to talk to. My son and daughter are too busy with their lives. They may call once every two months. I have basically been alone all my life. I have nothing to look forward to but more isolation and aloneness. I live in a rural area of Maryland. I didn't have a job and my unemployment was ending so I left Manhattan because I knew I would not be able to pay my rent without a job. Maybe it was a premature decision. Anyway, I am miserable here, but was beginning to be miserable there since my brother, my best friend and two cousins had died. My husband had left and I had no one to depend on or count on. I feel very sad and alone. I don't seem to relate to people well and I don't seem to fit in anywhere. I do not like religious groups, so I will not go to them to try to meet people. I spend nearly all my time on the computer. I watch TV, movies, youtube, read blogs,play scrabble, look for jobs and just basically kill time. I do not go out to walk anymore. I am tired of doing it alone. I think that perhaps if I don't exercise, I will just drop dead or maybe die in my sleep. I am sick of this life. No job, nowhere to go, nothing to get up for. Boring day after day with no hope for a future. Send resumes over a year. Nothing. It's a sad, sad life. I am out of ideas so I just sit in front of computer 12 hours and sleep 12 hours. Go to store when I have to. Feed cat, clean litter box, check mail,do laundry. That's my life. No friends. Everyone I know basically dislikes me or hates me. I'm a very bad person.

In the middle of Hunting and Fishing area...I dont do either. I hope friends are found for you.... till then, friends can be found on here...yeah...not the 'in the flesh' kind.<br />
