I am so lonely. I wish I was better at making friends. She was my best friend and sole confidant. Now I'm in my 30s and have no friends.

I am in the same position as u too. My Husband and I were college sweethearts and I literally grew up with him. Never bothered to have a Friend circle and my life evolved ard him. I feel lost too... but it's not too late. Sign up for some interest groups and widen your network of friends. Come out of your shell as I did. Not worth grieving over the loss... move forward Friend.

@Neverfeltsosore I completely understand. I started dating my wife in high school, and I never felt like I needed other friends. We did everything together...

I've been searching for groups in my area (Cincinnati), but the offerings are sadly lacking. I'm definitely trying to come out of my shell and get over my social anxiety, but it's no easy feat.

Thank you for your kind words. If you ever want to talk about anything, I would love to listen.

I have been there. .. in way I am still there. I try to keep myself busy and avoid isolating myself.
I read different articles that have helped. This is one of them. We can talk here any time.
