Ive been wondering this for a while. I began researching in my early 30's and was still... some might say not "awake" yet. Not until I moved to a
rural area, and was less consumed with lots of hanging out, and partying with friends, did I have the time to look into other things, that well, lead
me hear to ATS.
I have since not been able to really connect with the people that I used to. We no longer have similar interests, and sometimes just have nothing to
talk about. I am sure that its has mostly to do with the amount of changes that I have made, and coming from NYC (The South Bronx) and then moving to
a gravel road, well there isnt much we can catch up on.
So Im wondering can I really try to find new friends at my age ( I am now in my mid 30's)? Its not just an age thing, but a interest thing too. I
mostly connect with people that well to be honest would be other members from ATS, (not everyone of course), but there isnt really a cool place to
make new friends that have similar interest that aren't on the internet.
Im sure that when the SHTF, and we are living a much different life, that there will be some ATS members that I would later realize live right around
the corner (not literally of course, population in my area, is about 20), I feel that the more time passes I am getting more comfortable with being
alone, but I think thats to me knowing that I have about the same chances of making long terms friends in my state of mind, as a group of people on a
Tuesday night have of bring mugged, by a gang of sharks, that have infiltrated the sewer systems, and now run the underground water scene, and are
silently fighting against the alligators from the 80's that were flushed down toilets!
I am the only one that feels this way? Have any of you had to go through something similar? And if so what did you do?
Thanks in advance, NRE.
