I'm still having a hard time making friends in Columbus. Attending a small church doesn't help, even though I wouldn't have it any other way. Also, I don't really know my co-workers at work. There are a couple of guys there that I could probably be friends with if I tried, but they don't seem like good candidates for a meaningful friendship.
Sure, judge me if you want. Tell me I've got my standards too high. Maybe that's true. I had some really great friends when I lived in Canton, and any new friend has a lot to live up to. Still, I think I'm willing to compromise and everything. But these guys at work just seem to have their own things going on and everything. Plus, I think I'm out of practice at this whole friend-making thing. I remember it being so easy when I was in school.
I'm thinking about getting onto the Columbus Craig List and maybe getting a DS event started or something, as a way of finding some people to hang out with. Of course, the DS could skew a little young, so I'll have to deal with the kids running around. Maybe there's something else I could get started to meet some new people. Or maybe there's something already running that I could get involved in. And there's always the Columbus extension of Ashland. I'm sure there's a chance of meeting anyone there younger than 40.
