We're Dating Again
OK, not separately. Together. Blake and I are in search of friends.
It's a challenge each time we move....be it to Keller when we built our first house.....then Castle Rock when we moved to Colorado.....then Brighton.....now Kansas City. How do you do it? Each time, it seems we become more out of the game and have no clue how to find people we like.
For example, we were at The Stonewall Inn the other night....eating pizza out on the patio and struck up a conversation with an awesome couple. We chatted and laughed and then went on our way, so as not to interrupt their evening. As we walk off, Blake nudges me and gives me the usual, "Did you get their digits?"
We're pathetic! It's so awkward trying to make friends in your 30's. This couple has lived in the KC area their whole lives.....surely they have plenty of friends.....and meanwhile our kids are practically swinging from the trees acting like fools....who would want us?!
Suggestions? Help us! We ain't got no game.
