I'm a 30-year-old who's been single for 4 years now. I've noticed pretty recently that all of my girlfriends have significant others and rarely have time to hang out with me. I see them once a month, and on a daily basis, I rarely have any friends to talk to and share a bond with. I've tried to keep in touch with old friends, but whenever I try to plan a get together with them, they either cancel or have some excuse that they can't. They would act all enthusiastic to want to hang out, but when it comes to the real deal, they back down. Also, I've tried making friends at school, work, or through meetup groups, and when I try to make friends with some people, they seem to reject my offer of friendship. Or it seems like I can't find potential friends who share the same interests that are very important to me. I wish I could have friends whom I could laugh with, have a good time, and support each other through troubled times. It seems like when I find a potential friend, majority of the time she'll have the qualities of being fun, yet can't support me like I would for her. Why is that? Why is it that I can be a true friend and these people can't? I feel like I have bad luck or something when it comes to creating a fulfilling social circle for me. It seems like guy friends are much more easy to make, but I really want some female friendships too!! It's not just a need to me, it's a necessity to be emotional healthy.
