So, I helped host a baby shower yesterday. I think it went pretty well. I just hope everyone had a good time. We didn't have any traditional games so I hope people weren't disappointed. It's always fun to have a party, though. And I like having people in my house.

I've realized something lately. Married people like to hang out with other married people. I think this is why I have so much trouble making new friends. Because everyone my age is either married or pregnant or both. When you meet someone new as a married person and find out he/she is married, it's easy to say, "Hey, why don't you and your spouse come over to our place for dinner." But it seems odd when you do that as a single person. Not only that, but you don't get many invitations from married people when you are single. It's like they think you'll be uncomfortable being the only single person. I have been lucky that my married friends tend to include me in things. But it seems like the older you get, the harder it is to meet people. I hope I'll be able to make new friends in California. It will be tough not having my buddies around me.

I think married people who only hang out with other married people are weird. Why can't you hang out with them even if you're single? Why can't you hang out with just her, then, without him? Why must some married couples do every_single_thing together? it makes me never, ever, ever want to get married. I am too independent for that nonsense.

You will make new friends. I know it's scary and it can be difficult, but you will. I think the best way to start is just by doing the same things you like doing in Denver, like Junior League and running and whatever.
