Hi- I occasionally bob my head into the site- and sometimes feel I need to post about a "down" day but have refrained so far....as there are guys with bigger problems who need work etc
However. One realization is now really bugging me..! So here it is.
I thought I was making friends and doing ok in rebuilding my life socially here in Adelaide... Until I realised that -in fact- I have no friends that can be called such :(
I met several parents through school but it was only this week that the pattern emerged.... they are all unreliable or trying to make money out of you.
They forget dates agreed for get togethers, cancel continuosly at the last minute, and/or forget to tell you they can no longer come when it's genuine!!!!
The only invites I have received turned out to be party plan things like Tupperware etc I find lots of mums selling stuff like candles, intimo, Avon etc are always talking about their wares!
I am helping at school volunteerng 5 hours a week and have been just taken for granted.
Is it just me experiencing this? I am feeling now as if I am living in a vacuum.... Another friend of mine who is an expat (not a British speaking person) has had very similar experiences too
