But making new friends is like dating.
I'd forgotten this.
I am always for new friends, new experiences, and new people. It isn't like I haven't been taking advantage of meeting new people over the past year but ever since a good chunk of my New York City support system fell apart (yes, that sounds a little dramatic but, to me, that's what the loss of two good friendships at once felt like), I have been trying to "put myself back out there" in an attempt to rebuild one.
And rebuilding something so important and complex takes effort and time.
It feels like a break up and like I am testing the dating waters again. It is annoying.
