I Suppose I Don't Suck At Meeting People...

I just suck at picking out who I should be friends with, that and I find.. I lose them all once I get into a relationship. Actually, I recently kicked all my every day friends to the curb. When I became born again, they didn't like that much.. most were druggies, sex-a-holics.. friends of that nature. I just didn't want that in my life anymore. I look out my window and all I see is.. Independence, people who only thing about themselves... they don't have time for me.. I don't have time for them. I know two wrongs don't make a right, but.. I just don't have the energy anymore to make a friend and have them use me or abuse me for however long... until I get fed up with it. I would just as soon, come here, type this, and have people with similar experiences, share theirs with me.. some day I will make a new friend. Besides, real friends are just so rare.

"real friends are just so rare." - very true. I feel almost the same way right now. I've been having trouble making friends after I got married, but then I finally got a friend and thought I was developing a real long-lasting friendship. It didn't appear to be the case, but as you are saying, we'll make new friends. You never know when another person close to you in spirit will show up in your life.

True enough, 90% of most congregations are hypocrites (or so my Bible says)

Maybe you could try finding some friends in your church, or joining a church that has lots of people your age. Easier said than done, though, trust me I know. Church people are usually somewhat fake, I think.
