Besides I'm in a new city and would like to have a few friends.
I think once you arrive at a certain age, it's difficult for adults to find really good friends. I think this is so for several reasons. The older we get, the busier we tend to be with family obligations. Also, as an adult you're more cautious with who you let in. I think also that as adults, we're, I don't know if judgmental is the right word, but sometimes we place a premium on looks or we gage to see if a potential friend is liked by others, etc.. When we were kids it was waay easy to find a friend: All you had to do was have candy and boom! you've got friends.
I guess maybe it's the same if you're a wino and hang out with other wino's.
I think that it's a good thing that making friends when we're older is slower and sometimes more challenging because there's a lot at stake when you're older. Not to mention that if we're sincere about our faith, we'll be cautious and a little judgmental with who we let in.
Anyway, I can empathize with you completely. We're social creatures and we need to connect with others (even us introverts!). The only thing I can say is this; ask God to bring people into your life and then be patient. Also, if you wanna get you need to be prepared to give. Praying for you!
