Every now and then I wish I could find a friend....a best friend. One that you could call any time....walk the dog with....go out to dinner with their family and yours....vacation with....etc. I haven't been blessed in my 42 years to have someone like that, other than my husband. I know many women that do have close friendships with other women.
Sometimes I wish that there was a friendship website to match people up. There are dating sites....why not friendship sites? I know it sounds crazy but I just don't know how I will ever meet someone like this. I would love to have a best friend.
But first I have to find the right person. It is like an episode from "How I Met Your Mother." Apparently it is taking a long time...if it ever happens. *sigh* I'm not waiting for anyone to initiate -- it is all about clicking with the right person.

I agree. I wish I had someone like that in my life too who I could talk to about anything and almost everything. Someone who lived close by though, other wise how would we do the stuff together like going for a walk or if she had the time if she could just accompany me to dd's soccer and stuff like that. I feel lonely and burdened. Dh has all the burden of being the bread winner. I have all the house work on my shoulders. It's not fair to both of us. I think if I had a friend it would take some of our family's burden off. And vice versa, I'd love to be there for her too. I had a v. close friend from the age of 14 to about 21 until I started working. I think once I started working and she was at home we just lost touch and then of course we moved and I've never had a really good friend since.
Don't imagine the worst incidents in your emotional life -- keep a positive attitude.
Start a friendship forum of your own. Being board owner and administrator you would be able to see who is where and if any prospective members are worth contacting, that is, in the future should you be fortunate. As your membership grows, so your forum can grow along with it.
To make your forum grow, add forums that enable your members to actively participate. There is much reward in having a friendship forum because you would be encouraging very shy members to open up, for surely friendship and the genuine chance of meeting up stems from getting to know people first. I would not recommend your joining dating sites because you would not know for certain just who you would end up talking to.
When I am able to private message which should be in a week's time, please feel free to contact me. I can give you details of free forums you could set up, and go from there. It's pleasurable, very rewarding having your own friendship site, and you would certainly not feel as dreadfully isolated and lonely.
Interesting....I will check those out. Thx.
I am grateful to have found mothering.com, but I do wish for someone I could hang out with in person..
I will say that JB is my very best friend, so that also keeps me from REALLY trying to reach out, since no one ever compares to how well we get along. But I do think it's be healthy for me to have a girl friend around haha.. Especially someone else who is a mother, so our kids could play...
In case you're curious about my status: I'm Kate, I spend every miraculous day with my darling soul mate JB and we are expecting our first baby (boy!) ...
