We are all so busy now and don’t always have time for our current responsibilities, so how could we possibly meet new people. Maybe your partner is required to like your friends as well. If they don’t, that hinders the continuation of the friendship. Your life may be busy with your partner, children and building a career. How do you make room for friends?
If you are fortunate, you have friends that know your history and you still enjoy each other’s company.
Maybe you just moved to a new community and need to build new friendships?
