Where to get some friends?!

Postby DespeRuth » Fri, 30 Jan 2004 1:44 pm

So... I recently moved here, my boyfriend is working his ass off, and I'm basicly stuck at home in the bleeding rain driving myself completely MAD!!!

His collegues' wifes are all pregnant (and I am not - and no immediate plans either) and very nest-building, whereas I would rather be dead than caught baby-cot-shopping.

I checked with my embassy, but they have no fun stuff going on for people in their 20's, and I am not very religious so getting involved in some church really isn't an option either.

What should I do..?

do something part-time, many expat wives and girlfriends do that. Teach tuiton, cooking, sewing, or pick up a hobby, in this way could have better chance of widening your social circle.

You may wish to do something worthwhile should monetary isn't an issue at home. If you can afford, you may wish to join some voluntary group for some duties. Cheerios!

Ignore the post from sincer_guy, he is one desperate person. Posting things such as needing a bodybuilding female partner and she has to be caucasian between the ages of 24-29.


Shouldnt your handle be "desperated_guy"?

I sinserely hope DespeRuth is no longer desperate, since the original thread was started in Jan 04. If she is still desperate, very sad.
Carpe Diem
