Facebook rocks, have lots of new friends via random chats there- gone out to gigs, cinema, each other food, etc.
It's just nice to get away from other bloody teachers tbh!

Take night classes (College or Uni), myspace etc, clubs (art, sewing, weight loss etc) and sometimes just striking up a random conversation with someone can start a friendship

mstiny, i know how you feel, thats why im on here such alot, i have a few close long standing friends but thats about it, never really been in a great position to go out and meet new people, although i do enjoy being a loner so not such a biggy for me but still someimes i do wish i could meet a few more. Saying that although i have never met any in the flesh i have made some real great friends on here

I am the same, i only basically have 1 friend local to me, and we always try to do something on her day off as she works 7 days a week some weeks, it can be hard. I do see her weekly as we go to slimming world together, then head for a meal after. Im happy with just the one friend though, keeps me happy lol...

If you need to lose weight, why not join somewhere like slimming world you may reconise people or you will start to make friends as i have (dont see them out of group though). Although my 1 friend i see as much as poss wasnt a result of slimming world but its a start.
Also if your a mum with a little one, why not head to surestart or mums and tots groups and try meet people there.

Maybe should have a national HUKD meet!!! LOL

I think some of us are all in the same position really. I personally don't have any friends since I moved away (I moved to Dundee, but then came back again because I was alone) but now since I've came back to the Glasgow area I'm alone again because now my friends from here have all moved away or are too busy with their own lives now

I forgot to mention that Dundee people are extremely weird people. A woman once tried to knock me down and she got out the car to chase me and beat me up and she kept calling me a "Weegie" even though I'm from Paisley. Other times they would spit on me or throw things at me (It was like High School!) Sorry if there are any decent people from Dundee, but from my experience they all seem very backward people

You could join your local Morris Dancers, jolly good fun !

#32
Thanks Baz, got the wrong pic though

#33
A) How old is the Cheerleader Pic?
B)How old were the cheerleaders at the time?
C)...
#34
Bazz if you're old enough to ask how old they are then they're obviously too young and you're too old.

Does that make sense ?

Nope

18 then :)

Perhaps I'm just not good at guessing ages!! Or in denial! I am 27 today, and guessing the picture was taken 5 years ago :whistling:
