Default Daydreaming *sigh*

So I really don't have any friends here where I live. It's not that I haven't tried, I just haven't found a friendly connection with anyone except BFs sister. We're close, but she doesn't have kids and is always on the go.

I have two more people whom I consider my best lives 2 hours away and the other lives in S. GA. I know my friend that lives 2 hours away would drop anything to come be with me for anything, but we don't get to see each other very often.

So the other day, my BFF in GA were daydreaming about how we would move closer to one another when her hubby retires from the AF. 13+ yrs away! LOL I say plus because we all know he's a lifer and won't retire until he absolutely has to. We were talking about living in SC because that state seems to meet all of our "likes". It was fun daydreaming, but it makes me sad too. One because I miss her so, so much. And 2 because I wish I had a friendship like that here. A sub BFF, if you will. I just wish I could find a friend around here who isn't more interested in spending their weekends drunk...or so stuck on themselves and their belongings that it makes me want to pull my hair out.

I tried to go to a Mommy's meet-up a couple of year's ago...and I was so unlike any of the women that showed up.

I dunno, maybe I'm just lonely for a friendship bond like I have with my BFFs that are so far away I talk to both of them almost daily, so that helps.

My friend in GA and I always joke about how we could help each other with chores. For instance, she hates folding laundry....I don't mind folding--I hate washing.

Do any of you away from family and close friends ever feel the same?

I do! My BFF lives in Jacksonville Fl and I am in N Ga. We talk on the phone, FB and email all the time but I miss her so much.
I hope that you are able to find a close friend soon that has the same interests as you!
