It's important to stay active and meet new people all through out life.

Friends are constantly moving or getting married. I have lots of old friends all ovee the country now and have new friends even in the last year that hang out with my current social group.

Don't let lack of friends get you down, it will becone a spiral of depression that keeps you from meeting people in the future.

So guys that drop the connection with their friends (especially single ones that certainly value it even more and that add even more edge to their social proof dynamics) are not the brightest bunch.
Lol- apparently, many of my ex-friends aren't the brightest bunch. :p
But I knew that, and to be around them you'd see they have very high opinions of themselves. This was something I battled when I was single...their women would say things like "we prefer to go out as couples". The one who said those very words, is on at least hubby #6...no joke. After showing me their true selves, I split.
Hoping to find better people when I move. I've been in my area for far too long, through thick and thin. I've done some housecleaning.

Hey guys,

I'm coming 43 this year and my social circle has shrunk to a miserable state.

Almost all of my friends are married and you know once that happens, trying to meet up with them is next to impossible.

Plus I've recently ended my LTR so that's someone close to me out of my life.

I'm a rather introvert person so I don't really enjoy hanging out at bars and such.

Even making new friends at this age can be challenging.

Anyone else in the same boat as me?
OP. This happens to everyone it seems. Best thing for me is I have a ton of hobbies. Thankfully my job constantly introduces me to new people, but it is SO difficult to find people that you connect with. Like many, all my close friends are now married, and NONE of their wives like me lol. I've been told they aren't too keen on my "player" like tendencies, as I'm usually cycling through women I meet from online dating sites. I literally just got out of an LTR and am jumping back into the dating pool... But one thing that has helped as a constant is my dog. Honestly, my dog has been there with me through all types of s*** life throws at you and I never feel alone. She's a great companion and is loyal as they come. Depending on your living situation, how much space you have, and how much free time you have, I'd suggest looking into bigger breeds like German Shepards, Rottweilers, Labradors, etc. They have a ton of energy so you'll need to have time to play with them.

That’s life man. The important thing is that you continue to reach for your dreams. Love yourself and you’ll never be lonely while attracting people who are meant to be there! Facts!!

This is so true, and I almost sank into a funk a couple of times. Both times I was in a relationship, which ironically makes it worse. It took me upending my life to go out and meet people again...and even then, finding the right guy to hang out with is harder than finding a girl to bang.
 

How This "Nice Guy" Steals Women from Jerks

Did you know a woman can be totally UN-ATTRACTED to you...

And she'll still sleep with you?

If you've ever seen a girl go home with some asshole she didn't even LIKE, you know this is true.

But how is this possible?

Because deep inside her brain, sexual desire has nothing to do with what you LOOK like...

And everything to do with how you make her FEEL.

Matt Cook knows this all too well.

Matt is a nice guy... but he steals women from JERKS all the time.

In this free video training below, he'll show you how he does it:

I've found the same thing as the OP.
Friends and also siblings just go off the social map.
I really think it's a time thing, I notice this most with siblings who are married with kids - they are fire fighting the whole time and really don't have time for anyone outside of their family. Maybe it's just modern life.
I've found a good bunch of male friends through hunting/fishing - some are younger and single, some are married with kids. Again, the married ones come on trips much less than the younger/single dudes.
Yep, you need to feed friendships - I'm aware of this but tend to drift a bit and then realise that several months have gone by!
