Why is it so hard to make new friends?

It seems to me like people on the East Coast are just particularly cold. The place I work seems to be filled with people who just don’t give a shit about anyone else. They are all just chasing the dollar, prestige or promotion.

It seem like I had an easier time making friends in the program when I was new. It keeps getting harder. I keep losing good friends to moving (both mine and theirs). We went to lunch with my sister-in-law today to say goodbye. They are moving to the other side of the country, just two years after we moved back to be closer to them.

I am sad. I will miss her and her family.

Yet another one moves away.

  1. I totally understand. I can’t post about it, but the I am getting prepared for the same thing. My inevitable move. For my husband’s career. I have a hard enough time making friends. IT’s even harder to leave the ones you have made.

  2. Moving from California to Vermont was like moving to the moon at age 7. I went from beach to blizzard. People treated me like some car-a-mel eating blonde freak. Cold, definitely cold. Don’t worry, they’ll warm up eventually.

    P.S. I found you through Kristin’s blog.
