Tentative steps being made at changing my social life.
Tonight, I have a friend coming over to the house who I've not seen in a long time. He lives about 15 minutes drive away, but I've not seen him in around a year, probably longer. He used to be one of my best friends. I could speak with him about anything. All that changed after my wife and I left the church that we used to be in. It's a shame. Partly life gets busy, partly you socialise with the people you see most regularly, partly I think he and others were discouraged from seeing us. I wonder what he'll say when I tell him that I'm going through a divorce.
I'm also making arrangements to see a friend for lunch on Sunday. I'm quite nervous about that, because I'd like it to develop to a deepening friendship and potentially into a relationship.
Time will tell.
