Just wanted to say Hey to everyone here.
Sunshine, I'm sorry for your loss. I know what that's like. If you ever want an ear, I'm here...
Me and my friends from high school lost touch a while ago :(, and I work in a small biz that isn't really 'socially geared'. I'm the youngest here, and my day is basically work and home, because while I would like to go out, I lack the incentive... company.
So that's me... What about you?

Hi it's so hard to really open up to women when you have been hurt by some. I like women who accept me as I am and are up front and honest. Someone I can trust and want lie to me. I love someone that laughs and makes me laugh.

Just wanted to say hi and express my appreciation for this group, let's keep it going! I think it's important to have same sex companionship, it's just something I've struggled with.
The only two close female friends I have are from high school, I haven't really made any new friends since then, just lost touch with many of them.
Work seems like a natural place to make friends because you spend so much time with each other but there are only three of us in my current office.
Looking forward to making progress in this area of my life!

Autumn Hi! It's funny how I can talk to people on line with out any problems. But in person I can not seem to get the guts to start a conversation. I wait for someone else to say something to me. At work I have know problems talking to complete strangers. I do not understand it.

2. At the park
3. At the homeowner's association meeting
4. Introduce myself to any neighbors I don't know
5. At my House of Worship
6. My kids friends' parents

9. Reconnect with old friends in my address book
10. Here at TOOLS
11. Talking to people in line at the grocery store
12. Say hi to people I pass when I'm out walking for exercise
13. At the pet store
