It’s mainly my own fault but I don’t have enough friends. When I got married I relocated to a small town far away from the friends I grew up with.
Then I had kids, and the social life suffered as a result. Business great but I work from home/from cafes so any friends I’ve made have been more acquaintances. Same with hobbies.
I’m mid 30s now so guys my age don’t really go out, most are settled with kids. I was thinking the other day if I was thrown in jail who would I call to bail me out (if not wife/family) - I had no idea, and that genuinely made me think I need to change this situation.
I’m envious of guys who have that solid group of friends, most of the time it’s guys they’ve spent their formative years with before girls came along. I had that once but unsure if I’ll ever get it back.
But maybe it’s because I’m not making enough of an effort in this aspect of my life? Should I start communicating more regularly with people, more texts etc, setting up boys nights, generally being more proactive?
