Do you ever get so lonely you want to cry?

Do you ladies ever feel like you won't make friends in your new town? I've been living in NH for a year now and can honestly say I don't have a single friend here. I'm friendly with 2 of the wives here but they're both about 30 and have kids so we don't have much in common. I thought I was going to find a friend in another wife who's the same age as me until she looked at me and said "I have my two best friends and my sisters so if I never have another friend again I'm fine with that." I got the hint. I love living here with my FI and I'm happier than ever in that sense but I really miss having friends. I go to school full time and I talk to people in class but it's the same thing there not much in common. I dunno I guess I'm just a little bummed and can't wait for my FI to get back to the real army so I can meet some wives on the same wavelength with me.

I will be your friend!!!! (ok, I know I am 1000 miles away from you, but still, I will)


You have had such a rough day. It must be so hard to meet people where you are, not being part of a base. Maybe you can try harder to make arrangements to get-together with school people? Maybe you just haven't realized what you have in common?


With a job and full time school, you must be crazy busy, but is there anywhere/anytime to volunteer? You may be able to meet some really friendly people there.

Girl--I Know exactly how you feel- Ijust moved here one month ago and haven't really made any friends. Friends are hard to come by--so hold on to your old ones and take care of them.


But I've found that people our age are not as friendly anymore. most people stay in their own circle and don't have the ettiquete to reach out to new people. Most people never move out of their town and don't really know what it's like to start over...


I feel you sister. Hang in there...Let me now if you ever need a friend to call...I'm down with that :)

What was that girl's problem!?  Who says stuff like that?  Who doesn't want more friends???  I'm so sorry you feel like this!  Most Air Force wives that i've encountered are very inclusive and welcoming and I'm so sorry you haven't had the same experience!  Is there a spouse's club you could join?

I hear you, I'm living in Holland with my Dutch Marine and it's so hard, especially with the language barrier.  I haven't started working yet because I am still waiting for my permit to stay so technically I'm still on a touris visa.  It's so frustrating, I know. 


Are there any school clubs that you can join?  They may not be able to relate to you as a future military wife but they may be able to relate to you with regards to other interests you might have like sports, reading, pets, cooking, traveling, etc.


I'm 6 hours ahead but I'm here too!
