I don’t really know why, but most women are terrible at making female friends. Your story is intriguing and touching in a way I think a lot of people can relate. But it seems to me that you treated every opportunity like it’s a date. Which I think wasn’t necessarily good.
But even men have trouble making new friends and I know that first hand. But I don’t think I’ve ever did purposely tried to make friends. It always happens to me so naturally, and if it’s not gonna work out or last long I feel that almost instantly.
I have friends in a different country where I grew up, but recently I really feel like I should meet new people too, and maybe be more open about possible new friendships. But as an adult, this is weird.
Great read, btw.
