I've been in Texas for over three years and have only made two 'friends'. I've been to parties with them/gone out with them a bunch, but their crowds (and the majority of kids I do meet) are very into the 'party' scene, which is cool, I like the party- but I don't really party. Weed makes me sick so i don't smoke it, I dont really like drinking and getting drunk at other people's houses that I dont know well just makes me panic, I'm married so I'm not very... "sexual" I suppose is the word? And I guess it makes me come off as stuck up even though I'm not arrogant or judgey when i say "No thanks" when offered stuff.
I've tried going to church since I figure I'll find kids who might have more in common with me (the no drinking/smoking idea) and that wasn't the case lol (along with enjoying the party, I also like to do stuff like paintball or just general activities that doesn't have to be party-like).
Its a small town so i run into a lot of groups that have been friends since forever and I can't really get in with them it seems.
I've tried going to "mommy&me" groups, since I have kids and maybe can make friends with other girls, and that didn't work either =/.
I just end up not having enough in common with anyone to persue a friendship past the small talk.
I don't think its my social skills, I have a whole load of friends back home, still do, so... I don't know what my problem is =(.
