So, it’s Saturday night. As a 30 something with no commitments, am I a) out at a party/bar/restaurant b) having a night in with friends or c) absolutely f*** all?
Sadly, the truth is option C. No parties, no nights out. Just the sofa and 200 plus Sky channels, flicking between old Homes Under the Hammer and Big Bang Theory.
The truth is, something I’ve realised recently is that I’ve become very lonely. A lot of my friends have moved on with other commitments, like families and mortgages. Nights out have morphed into lunches and house visits, and while they’re together having family time at the weekend I’m here wondering what the hell happened.
I love my friends, and when we organise meet ups it’s always great to see them. However my social life has definitely hit something of a road block, and I’m not sure what to do about it. Making friends as a child wasn’t so bad. At school it was something like “do you want to be friends?” and that was it. When you’re older, what do you do instead? Meeting people isn’t so easy it seems. I’m not looking for a date, just a way of making new friends. It sometimes feels like everyone else seems to have a hectic social life, a relationship and no issues with either one.
So what do you do when your Saturday night consists of channel hopping and waiting for a last minute phonecall/text asking if you want to meet up? At the moment it feels like I have all of the questions and not many answers…….
Anyone else feel the same out there?
