I wish making friends worked like a job interview. You answer a few questions, fill out a form or two and if you are a good fit- you are friends.
I don't have a best friend, I want one, but it seems like everyone else has a best friend or an impenetrable friend group. As crazy as it sounds, when I see those groups post all their pictures on Instagram it makes me a little jealous. I would love to have a group of girls that we hang out most weekends, go out on the boat, or just hang out at the house and have a glass of wine and chill.
Friends are hard to come by and harder to keep, we don't invest enough time in each other and we let silly fights end friendships. I can't tell you how many times I've had a stupid argument with a friend and then both of us are too embarrassed to just get over it, so we avoid each other for weeks on end until we awkwardly run into each other one day and don't make eye contact. It's ridiculous. If your friends, your friends. Period. We (ladies) need to stop being so damn sensitive. Also! Women with babies don't only have to be friends with other mommies, and women without kids don't only have to be friends with other non-mommies!
I wish there was a Tinder for friends!
So here it is, about as vulnerable as it gets- short and sweet. I am so damn over not having girl friends. So with that being said- if you enjoy long walks on the beach and Red wine lets chat... just kidding; that's my impression of some tinder profile.
But seriously, I can't be the only one who wishes friends were easier to make and keep. So if you like pointless trips to TJMaxx, Starbucks dates, spending Saturdays on the lake, and trying new wines based on the label & drinking them out on the deck while talking about life- I want to be your friend.
