    Post Semi hello/ideas on making friends?

    Hi everyone

    So I apologise in advance if I ramble - I've been a member for a LONG time on the BH forums and never posted... I guess I didn't know where to start.

    So to make a long story short and explain my situation in the easiest way possible - I've got no friends anymore to talk to

    Ever since I moved home from WA to NSW in 2012 and re-partnered; I never really made any friends. One of my best friends of 14 years decided that having money for his collectibles was more important than attending a custody trial for my eldest son - so I cut him off. And my other best friend is a busy busy RN in WA and I feel awkward contacting her and accidentally waking her up lol. Most of my other friends aren't so close anymore and spread across 3 states.

    I guess that I was so focused on my kids, DP's son and all my court stuff going on (LONG STORY) that I just didn't think it was that important. However now that I've ended one of my friendships that I thought was life-long, I feel so lonely

    But this is only where my problems start - how do I even begin to explain the mess that is my life to anyone I even meet and try and have a friendship with? Unfortunately I don't think the whole "my ex took my son and now I'm waiting for court to make a decision while I raise my youngest son, and I get to see my oldest in school holidays" is really appealing for anyone to form a friendship with.

    SOOOO - if that was too hard to read, this is my question for all you lovely BH forumers: HOW HOW HOW do I make friends?!?!?!?!

    PS Hi everyone I'm hoping you can all save me from a life of being a crazy cat lady with my DP and kids!
