I have been a single parent, raised my children, with my 15 year old being my youngest. I have found over the years that while I have lots of acquiaintances my best friends that I grew up with live states away and I have not made these types of close friendships in 20 years where I now live. I have tried meetups, Bible studies, everything and again, make aquintances but no real friendships. I know the world is changing but there has to be someone that I can befriend who will love me enough to share in my life and get to know me, care enough to know me and my family and me theirs. It seems people are busy, already have their group of friends, etc. I’ve prayed for years for a good, close Christian girlfriend that will be there for me and me for her….just to do life together. My children are all very happy and have great social lives, and I am so blessed and tell them how they should cherish good friends, and they really do. Prayer for a close friend. I feel alone, often. Even surrounded by my fiance and children, I miss having a friend nearby.
