I’d be friend heavy but I’m not. Those close friends I had for years are all scattered and the friends I’ve made in the past 15 years seem to be mostly child-related. We see each other so often at wrestling and school that one day we chatted while waiting, then we exchanged names, then we’d ask how the family was, maybe give cookies at Christmas…... we’re childrelated friends. but our children are older now and we drift apart.
I’d forgotten how hard it is to make new friends. how do you walk up to someone and say “hi my name’s Tia, want to be my friend?” ?
maybe I should have gum or balloons or something?
