I am concerned about what people's first impression of me will be when I am in a new location. It has taken several years to make the friend's I have now. They love me for being me. I think my friends would describe me with the following words: blunt, caring, brutally honest, unfashionable, modest, sarcastic, funny, loyal, inpatient and a realist.
To demonstrate my point, let me tell you my viewpoint of the first time I met my husband. My sister and I were driving from 10 hours away to meet someone I had been chatting with on the computer. We got lost because of awful directions given by this man. My husband still thinks we didn't follow the good directions well. We finally get there and I am hungry. He is chit chatting and I tell him we have to go get something to eat.

Girls, if he is good enough to kiss on the first date, you can certainly drink the rest of his beverage. If he doesn't let you, I probably wouldn't kiss him either.
I left and he flew me back two weeks later. We have been together ever since. I could have decided to suffer in my dehydrated state. I could have ate a salad, but that isn't me. When I meet someone, I want them to know exactly who I am. Sometimes I will have my hair in a bun and be wearing sweatpants. I want people to love me because of what is in the inside. My husband and friends here seem to like me for the post part, but I am nervous other people won't
I hope that the people I meet in Nevada will be accepting of my flaws and good times. Although I am mid-thirty, I still need friends.
What do you look for in friendships? Have you ever moved and had to start all over in the friendship department?
