I'm not sure I'm going to be much help. My hubby jas ran into a lot of women that say they wish to be friends, and theybare as long as he's paying. Even the one he helped through her divorce spent months acting like a friend then dumped him.
My best advice is the one I give him. Go out, talk to people. When you find an intereating one, get toknownthem better. It's easy to meet people, but much harder to find ones worth calling friend. If it were easy, every one would get along.
You'll find folks worthy of you, it jistbtakes time.
