So now that I know life is about balancing wants and needs and compromise settled by communication, where do I find real time friends without doing crazy things like FEEDING THE HOMELESS? I mean, cmon, I work 40 hrs a week to survive.. I commute. when I get home, I drop.. and my kid goes, mommy-mommy-mommy!! And tugs and tugs on my clothes. Sat and sunday just takes 2 days to clean up the mess that the kid leaves behind.. and cooking cleaning and chores. So when exactly do I have the time to go out socialize with the people? How do I beat this social loneliness without participating in something that I don't even feel comfortable doing? I guess Internet would remain the tool in finding quality people. I just hope for someone local. You folks in other states are great, but I also need someone to share coffee once a week .. a girly hang out, a people watch, call it whatever you like. I just need friends!!!! ARRRRRHHHHHHH!!!!!

Most days I can hold it together, at least in front of people at work. Today I...
