    Most of my friends (gay and straight) are in relationships and, over time, it has been be difficult to get them to make time to hang out. Thus, I am seeking new friends. Any suggestions on how to approach this? I am 40 now and the places I used before to find friends are not the ideal places anymore (school, bars/clubs, friends of friends, etc). Joining a 'group' or 'team' is not good for me since I work long hours Mon to Fri. It has to be more of a weekend thing.

    I look forward to your replies.

    I'm kind of in the same boat. I just came back from college, and came to the realization that i don't know anybody in NYC anymore, so I have to start from scratch. My job mostly has me working alone, so I don't really hang out with my coworkers or anything, and I don't know any other ways to make friends now that I'm not in school anymore
