Friends...or why is it so hard to have some

I swear, I am not a scary devil worshipping Atheist, I am a normal person, I have a job, I have kids, I have interests... I am fat AKA chunky AKA Fluffy...ect....and P.S. I am Agnostic, not an Atheist... When I was home and not working, I was always on the lookout for friends to hang with, to have play dates with my kids... I was virtually ignored at the park, even though I am a friendly person and I smile at people. I started to think (and I still do) that it was my fat self that made people not want to talk to me. I think I was a victim of stereotyping. I was categorized as fat, lazy and white trash. When someone did talk to me, when I did not respond to the inevitable "religious" talk (I live in a super conservative town, we have a ton of churches) I was then ignored next time we crossed paths at the park. I never had a problem making friends when I lived in a more diverse town...whats the deal? Was it me? I mean, I didn't start talking Harry Potter and how I am hot for Lucius Malfoy or anything... LOL!!! Even I might run away from that kind of talk at a first meeting! Personally, I think its because I am not "cookie cutter" like so many women aspire to be. I wonder if its almost like the men who enjoy bigger women but wont go out with them because their friends might make fun of them... Hmmmmm
Oh well... I enjoy my life and my kids... I just wish I had a friend (that lives close by) I could share my thoughts, problems and dreams with. I do have to give a shout out to my Internet friends who love me for who I am, or maybe in spite of who I am... LOL!!!

Honey honey honey! I don't think it has anything to do with your fluffiness. I am a little less fluffy and I have two "friends" here in the 3rd largest city in the US. I am not sure people out there want to get to know someone interesting that may acutally have a mind or opinion on things. That would be too challenging. However, if we moved to CA you and I WOULD hang out. I just know you would have me on the floor laughing. We can go to the park together and be white trash that doesn't talk about religion.

You can have me as a friend!!!!! I am close! :) I have, and do, feel the same way you do - and I don't understand why people can be the way they are!

Awww, Mimi....I love you! And I consider you a friend!

If someone doesn't want to be friends with you, its their loss. You are so much better off without them!
