Over the past few months I've started to realise that I really dont have any close friends and that I especially miss that female company. While I was training and for the first few years of teaching I was (like everyone) so busy and lost contact with friends from school etc. I have my lovely OH and we go out with his friends and their girlfriends and I also go out with colleagues but am not close to any of them. I think I've really begun to notice this as I have begun to plan our wedding and have realised that they are written in a list there are really not many people there (other than family). I am beginning to dread my hen do for this reason. I'm in my 20s and it just seems a bit sad, most other women my age seem to have large groups of close friends. Has anyone else been in this situation? What worked for meeting new people?
