I've Been Dissed!

Ever since Ann, Claudine, Kate and my cousin moved away last year, I have been missing my friends a lot. I have many friends who still live here, but it seems that every year people move away and I need to work on making new friends...not an easy thing to do.

Casey joined a kayaking listserv and suggested I look for a Yahoo group to join. I found a professional women in Arizona group and began emailing with several women. We got along okay, and decided to meet. I should have known it was too good to be true when one of the women suggested we meet at Fat Tuesday's. Now, I have nothing against Fat Tuesday's, but as most of you know I am not much of a drinker and should have seen this as a sign.

The women were nice enough, and would probably make great friends, but not to me. We had very little in common and just didn't feel that connection. As Claudine said, "It is kind of like dating; either you have that connection or you don't." I guess she is right.

I haven't really written them since we met, as I don't exactly know what to say. At the same time, my feelings are hurt because the haven't really written me either! Casey said, "Why do you care? You didn't really like them anyway?" That isn't the point! I wanted them to like me. Or, more to the point, I wanted a "love connection."

To my dear friends, Ann, Claudine, Kate and Michelle...I miss you.

Awww, I miss you, too.
Sorry that didn't work out. I know it is always hard making new friends once you are out of school.

I had that feeling when I first arrived in AZ. I was happy to see my family but all my friends were on the East coast. I have met some new friends at various places that I will tell you about. Iam eager to see you and have some fun!xxx
