I've had kind of a lonely streak in my life the past few weeks. I am in a satisfying relationship, but it's with a woman from Chicago.

And socially? I've got nothin'. And it's largely because I haven't really had any friends around for a few weeks.

I'm wondering how I change that. How do I make some friends? I'm completely inept at it; all my friends are either friends from freaking high school or just acquaintances.

I realize it's probably not terribly bright posting this on a Saturday night, but there you have it. Recommendations?

Friends are just a pain in the ass 90% of the time. You're better off without them.

I don't think it's possible to make new friends after the age of 22. It's some kind of biological thing.

Women don't count as friends. I believe he is talking about non-gay male bonding friendship

Most of my friends are people I work with. I have a couple of buddies from high school, but we rarely get together (mostly email jokes, etc.). It's not easy making friends when work and homelife take a large portion of your time.

Get a part time job bartending, or waiting tables, you'll always have people that want to go grab a drink.

I wouldn't try.

Just think of all the weekends you'll have free because you don't have to help anyone move, fix their car and whatnot.

I think its a little tougher when you get older....family obligations at home, work.....and other people your age with the same issues make it tougher to become "good friends" like in HS and college.

I made a lot of new friends through my graduate classes... the only problem with that is the girls are too smart to believe my sh*t.

I actually kind of know how you feel. I moved here without knowing a soul from Iowa a few months ago. I only really have 2 guy friends here in Kansas City. I mean, I know alot of girls unfortunately that I have met at the bars or offline, but I don't really count them as friends. They aren't people I can really go to the bars and get trashed with, or go to sporting events, or actually have conversation that I deem interesting. I've really never had this problem before. I've always been surrounded by friends from high school and college and now they are all scattered across the country or still living in my hometown. It kinda sucks, but at the same time it's kind of peaceful to not have people calling me up every single day trying to get me to go out or help them out with something I really don't want to do.
