Re: Female having trouble making close female friends, any ideas?

I think friendships go in cycles.

Like Witty1, I have lost touch with my high school friends. For quite a while I pretty much had my fiance and some acquaintances that we would go fishing or riding snowmobiles or something with, but never to dinner or anything.

But in the last few years I've found that for some reason I have begun attracting friends. I don't know what I'm doing differently...I don't feel like I'm doing anything differently. Just all of a sudden women seem to want to befriend me. I met one person at a training class in California and we've stayed friends since (email daily, talk on the phone occasionally), one lady was a customer and she sort of adopted me and we go to lunch occasionally, and another lady was married to my ex-boyfriend and when he told her he wanted a divorce she latched onto me to support her through her rough patch.

So I just see it as cyclical. You may go a while without having friends, and then all of a sudden you'll have some. The only thing I can suggest is to put yourself out in situations where you can meet people, but don't worry about it. That's the only thing I can say I might have been doing differently...I didn't care if I made new friends. Maybe it was my own comfort with being alone that drew other people to me. I really don't mind it.
