Part of my problem making friends is that I can’t relate to people. I am single, live with my parents, and don’t have kids.
I don’t have a problem with that. I am genuinely interested in their kids and spouses when I ask about them. I don’t mind hanging out with them either. Nonetheless, it ends up being exclusionary. People with young kids around the same age take their kids to fairs together. Others, without kids, go on double dates.
I don’t fit in. I guess they don’t have anything to talk to me about. Perhaps they see me as an immature child.
However, there is at least one other childless, single person I can picture. She has friends. Somehow she gets over these hurdles. I’m not sure how she makes friends. 😦
