FUCK! its hard to make friends, especially in NYC. I’m 24 year old woman who moved to New York 4 years ago. I am from a third world country who grew up in a very catholic family went to a catholic school for 12 years (and yes i still have that uniform) and even way before I was a kid, I never have a group for me to hangout with. I dont think I am a follower, nor I am a leader (of some sort). As far as I could remember I have always been a loner. For 2013 One of my “New year’s Resolution” would be going out more! meeting other people, having more friends. It’s not like I never tried, the first year when i came, it was 2008 I went to school of Arts and I just can’t connect with anybody. I get the impression of “they already have friends and they dont need a new one” or “Guys and Girls can’t be friends” which is so unusual to me. I just wan’t to have friends to hangout with but I can’t relate to women since I am just not interested in talking about boys (all the time), or clothes, or hair and when I hangout with guys, apparently it’s already “flirting” cause whatever I do like i said earlier “Guys and Girls cant be friends”. I struggled for a while until I met someone who is also not American. She’s french and just like me having trouble making friends. Fast forward to now, we still both have no idea to meet other people. We tried going to Halloween Parade and meet strangers I was lady gaga and my french friend went as a Princess Jasmine but we end up geting beat up by 6-8 high-schoolers at mcdonalds at 4 am at chambers st. for they kept calling me “ugly” or “transgendered woman” (DUH! i was LADY GAGA LOL) and my french friend tried to defend me and it end up we all tried to beat each other in the street and good thing the security guard (who was wearing BATMAN) saves the day. We tried going to parties and usually it starts to me as “Oh wow! You’re very good with your english” or “I didn’t know you guys speak english” as for my french friend they always say to her “Oh you’re frech?! Bonjour!” or “I love Paris” As time pass we’ve met and have friends but no one really stick to us or hang out with us constantly. I only have one friend. My french friend. I finish college 2 years ago and started working but she needs to keep studying for her visa sake. So now, I dont have a friend to hangout with anymore since she is busy or we have different schedules. That’s why I am making this blog to make friends although (virtually) or people can give me advice on how to approach someone without being creepy or weird and also my family kept telling me that at this age (24-25) in their life they have the most fun and I should experience crazy wild adventure coz you can only do this while you’re young, not married and doesn’t have a kid yet.
PS right now, I am enrolling for a gym membership at Lucille Roberts. Wish me luck to meet and have friends… damn I’m pathetic! LOL
