    Default Lonely and in a funk

    So I am in a funk and need to vent/whine. lol.

    I really wish all of you lived close to me because i feel like i'm better friends with the people on here than i am with people in this city. I have been here 9 almost 10 years and i never have friends to do anything with. it's just my dog and my husband. people out here are very flaky. all my friends and neighbors have annoying little dogs so i can't even have play dates for butler. it just gets so boring not having friends or family live close.

    I'm almost done with my associates degree in forensic technology, but no one is hiring! i can find jobs upon jobs in other cities and states, but the metropolitan phoenix area is not hiring for forensic techs or fingerprint examiners, blah blah blah. I would move but am STUCK here forever because my husband, his career, and his children.

    My husband wants to buy an iPad, but i can't justify $$$$ on a stupid piece of giant iPod. he makes me so angry with his profligate spending on stupid junk. he's like the government. never wants to pay down debt, just wants to spend spend spend. ugh. it wouldn't be so bad if i had a big girl job, but i just teller at a bank. not making wild money over here! lol.

    i guess that's it. work sucks too, come to think of it. old people are so rude and smelly.

    thanks for letting me vent! i feel better already!

    Hmmmm..what do you consider "old"? I am so sorry you are feeling sad.. it's very hard to live somewhere you arent happy. It's happened to me too! I bet you have been busy getting thru school and maybe haven't had the right reason to make friends? You should figure out what interests you have and search for clubs or meetings with people who like what you like. If it's your sweet Butler..how about volunteering in a rescue center or the like. Search areas outside your city..but close enough to get there easily. Phoenix is pretty close...and big! I bet you feel stuck also because here you have worked so hard to get your degree and no jobs available. The economy sucks but you sure aren't alone. It's getting better...just much slower than any of us would like. Let your hubby buy the iPad..for YOU!! You have a big girl job...any job is a big girl job! There are quite a few members here from near you..maybe organize a meet up! Get those bullies together and you know we are great peeps! Wish I had a magic answer...but alas...I don't. Try and make lemonade out of a few of the lemons in your life! Most important of all..take a deep breath and count your blessings.

    i know there are a few members out here, but we all live in different corners of the valley. it stinks! i should organize a meetup, but i think our cool weather has passed, and it's hard to get people to commit to stuff. i should just drive down to see @desertskybulldogs. i know i love bully people, i just wish we were all neighbors. lol.

    I did join a police wives club, so i should be meeting some new ladies that way. i'll have some lemonade and sweet tea vodka!

    I understand how you feel. For me it is too much hassle to go meet up with my friends anymore, I just have too much going on. I guess that is why my free time goes here, because I do feel like I am hanging out with my friends!

    There was a meet up here once. I could not help but to feel like it was so that people could pimp out their stud, made me a bit uncomfortable. I would surely try again if I knew you and sheshistory would come!! But it is still a long drive. I thought Karen had a meet up in Phoenix or did that one fizzle? @sheila

    Start a bully club! Probably could post a notice on Craigslist to let people know you are starting one.

    Our Meetup has rules about un-altered males as do all of the dog parks we go to. Makes it nice not to worry.

    Always with me

    Oh Sheila I feel your pain! I lived over 7 years in South Beach where there was something to to 24/7, I left an abusive relationship and came to Bradenton to rent my sister's home for 1 year to "get away" this is truly and I am not kidding a town where people move to after they retire and die. I ended up meeting and falling in love with Joe when I was just about at a year of living here.

    I work and I am at home period. As a bartender at a busy sports bar, I am the oldest employee, including older than all my bosses. I do not want to go out every night and party with the 21 yr. olds. I have ZERO freinds, occasionally I will go have lunch with my 72 yr. old neighbor. I too am stuck here, I met Joe and we married, he has an excellent job, and a 9 yr. old. I see no move in my near future. I get so depressed. I don't know anyone either that has a bully so no play-dates for Vegas. He does play with my son's pit/mix, but that is a bit to much for him and he over-exhaust himself.

    It is just me and Joe 24/7 and I love that man to death, but being together ALL the time can be smothering and boring! I come on this site for friendship, and a feeling of belonging. (who else is going to understand about bully's other than other bully lover's? Most people think I am insane when I talk about Vegas) I wish I had someone close that I could just visit for an hour and come home. Just wanted you to know I feel your pain, and I am glad you feel better to vent!!
