Dallasfan824 saidAll of my closets friends I made in my very late 20s through 40s. I dont talk to anyone I knew before I was 25.
^^^ same for me. the fact is that we're all changing in our teenage years and early 20s, finding ourselves, developing our ideas and positions in the world. i really don't talk to my friends from highschool anymore, even though we were very tight back then. university changed everything and we all went in different directions. my best friends are the ones i made in university and in work - because we share deeper life experiences and values.
moving to a new city is always tough, and it depends on the culture of that place, how welcoming they are to outsiders. so you must strike the balance between putting yourself out there and being outgoing and friendly, but also being modest and respectful of other people's different comforts in the speed in which they make friends.
