My husband and I moved out to the east coast two years ago. We both have very demanding jobs and his job has him gone weeks at a time. The one thing that I am finding difficult is finding new friends. My husband's schedule is unpredicable so we can not plan around it. I am 28 years old and it seems like everyone already has a group of friends. It isn't like college and everyone is in the same position you are. I feel like such a nerd trying to make friends.

Dear New Kid:
Sucks to be you!
Seriously, making new friends takes time, but you don't have any after two years? Talk about living in a bubble!
Get involved in community activities, and I'm not talking about dealing drugs. Look into faith based community activities, sports, and special interest activities, but don't put all your eggs in one basket. If you're not interested in community activities, you're screwed! Just kidding!
If you want friends, you need to be out there, not kooked up in your home hoping someone comes knocking. Good luck, New Kid!
