Does anyone else have trouble making friends IRL? I basically have no friends. I’ll meet someone and think we could maybe be friends, but it never happens. I try putting myself out there but I always get rejected. I have to wonder what’s wrong with [I]me[/I]. I’m a mom, but I’m not the (stero)typical mommy. So 99.9% of moms I come across through Becca’s activities just don’t click. I don’t know why, but I just feel so very different from them. It doesn’t help that more than half of them already know each other well.
My latest blow - I was supposed to meet up with another woman for some needlework time. I went there, waited for about an hour, and nothing. She emailed me the next day or so and apologized that she’d gotten caught up in something else. I emailed her back saying it wasn’t a big deal. No response. A week or so later, I called her, hoping to meet up again. I had to leave a message and I still haven’t heard anything back - this was nearly 2 weeks ago.
I know she is super busy, but I thought she’d at least be able to shoot me a brief email. I don’t want to put myself back out here yet again. I feel like I’m chasing these people down, begging them to be my friend. :pout: What makes me so detestable?
