Cyberhugs here too. I'm in a similar situation with work -- offered a lateral move and can't decide what to do. Less than 48 hours remaining. Joy.

Like some of the others many of my friends are dog people, particularly agility people. Which tends to include people of all ages (mostly 10-30 years old than I am but also some younger), married, single, widowed, divorced, etc. Shared passions have a way of bringing people together. But it depends on what you're looking for too...BFFs, simply Good People to hang out with, dating prospects, etc. In any case, good luck. And extra hugs.

Haha all of the above. I keep waiting for my hot guy with a border collie to show up to an agility event. Still hasn't happened yet.

I like agility a lot but I only go once a week for a few hours. I'm getting to know people better and I know that will continue on as we train. But I need something else, I think.

I can't decide if tomorrow morning I should go to my usual church or if I should go to try the other church.

And I don't even know about work.

Oh girl I am in the same boat! Almost exactly!

In our YA church group, am the oldest, I have stopped going. I work with kids all day long, so I didn't really appreciate the immature-ness of the group and I didn't have fun. Plus, my work schedule conflicts - while I do get off early enough to go, I have to go let the dogs out & exercise them before I go out. And the one guy who is interested, I am sooo not. And he has turned into like... a stalker

In my dog training group of friends, I am the youngest. It wasn't a problem until the begining of the summer, when the one lady realized I was actually the same age as her son. Ever since then, I feel like I am exluded because of my age. Whatever.

I wish I had advice for you, but I really don't. My close friends are WAY older than me, and I don't really have a problem with it, but other people do... But I am just not into what most people in my immeadiate area are into, at my age

Ah well, just waiting for my age to catch up to my age, I guess


sympathetic ((((((((hugs))))))

Blah I can relate too. The church I've started going to has a Friday evening service and apparently that's when the younger crowd attends, rather than Sunday mornings. But the Friday service is at 7:15pm and most of the time it's around 6:30 when I get off work... and it takes me 20 minutes to get home... it's just pushing it too much for me to run there straight after work.

All the people I work with are 30+, married with children... and I just turned 21 and am super single sooo that will never turn into anything. Even when we have outside of work events scheduled I never go because everyone brings their family with so it's just weird to me. I feel like a baby in comparison lol.

Ideally I don't want to look for more dog friends cuz my life is already consumed enough by animals. But I am having a hard time figuring out how to meet other people unless I strike up a conversation with someone at the dog park lol.

Yeah I think that dynamic changes after training together for a long time...or especially when you start trialing. I mean you are basically spending many hours together, a lot of it downtime, and cheering one another through elation and moments of poetry as well as the inevitable disappointments/heartbreak that is competing with your canine partner lol. Some of my best agility friends are also my fiercest competition. I love it.

Haha okay I think I will try the new one this weekend and just see if it feels like something I should pursue.

I really do think chaz people all need to move to at least the same state. How fun would that be?

If work had TOLD me, 'hey we need you to move over here' then it would be fine and I would do it right away but it was left very open ended. I'm leaning towards not doing it though solely because it will amplify my least favorite parts of my job and then I will be doing less graphics work.

Yeah walking away from your favorite part of your job seems like something to be avoided...

And all of us in one state would probably cause Armageddon lol. Unless Renee can figure out a way to real-life "Close" a discussion when things heat up. Or maybe that's what the Fila is for?

*still stewing on the job thing*

Once a thousand times.....

Romans 8:28 "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. "

Pray. Then go were He leads you. The end.

I'm not interested in the same stuff as most the girls I know. They all watch the same shows (the Kardashians) and like to talk about fashion designers, gossip, etc. I always feel awkward and out of place.
This is me too.
