Finding friends your own age with similar likes
Does anyone else have trouble finding friends who have similar likes and hobbies?
After college, all my friends moved away to other states. This is a college town so there seem to be 2 groups of people: The college students, and the retirees.
I don't have a single friend my own age. It seems like people in my age group are either working full time, raising children, or moving away!
All the people I ride with are older than me, sometimes as old as or older than my parents. Not that I don't appreciate them, but I miss having friends my own age!
Do most people my age just stop riding horses? Or do they show? Barrel race? Are they somewhere else? Is there something I'm missing here?
I've only met one couple my age riding at the local state park. They were not at all friendly.
I've thought of joining a photography club or maybe one of the bird watching clubs, but they meet all the way in town which is a good 25 mile drive there, and another 25 miles back again. The nearest horse club is outside my county. Although now that I have a truck that won't break down on me, I could probably go to a few meetings.
