Its Been So Hard Lately

I just made a huge life change about 7 months ago, and sadly it has not panned out like I planned.  I am having a very difficult time making friends and the few I thought I made, actually just used me to get what they needed and then decided not to talk to me anymore...Im trying to stay positive but as the days go by I am becoming more and more depressed.  Its not that I cant talk too or meet people, because I have a lot of acquaintances, but for some reason I can never make these acquaintances friends...I would love some advise..

Do you mind if I ask what your major life change was? I noticed you added me as a friend there, and I find it strange that this was the first story of yours that I encountered. I am setting myself up for a major life change at the moment. Maybe it was a sign we should be friends :P

Good friends are hard to find, and even harder to keep. I don't think it is a matter of finding them. The problem is people are too busy. They have their own thing going on and a lot of people don't think of anyone but themselves. Even on this site, I find it hard to gain any friends. Some comments, but no invites of commradery (sp?) Join a group for an activity that you like and meet knew people. The more you meet the better the odds. Just don't get too discouraged. Be your own best friend. There is a saying. If you've had five good friends at the of your life, you are a lucky person. In the meantime, send me a message, keep in touch.
