I've lived here for 14 years now. And I am still looking for that bff. Making friends as an adult is so hard. It's basically dating. I have friends from church. Friends from work. Friends from bookclub.
I feel like I am "asking them out" when I am asking them to get together. What should we do? Where should we go? How do I ask so it doesn't sound like a date? Do I follow up? Do I wait for them to ask me to get together next? Do I wait three days?
I invited my neighbor to join the kids and me at a local concert at the park tonight. I'm so glad I did. Her daughter is Laci's bff right now. They live 3 doors door and Laci and her daughter are the same age. Her son is 9 months younger than Calvin so I see them being friends in the future too. And we get along too when we are outside with the kids. We had a nice time tonight. I hope this is the start of a good friendship and more outings / get together with her and their family. It's hard to make that first step and get to know someone. But it's worth it.
