I know it’s Covid and all, but I can’t help but feel upset that I don’t have that many friends. I feel like I work so much that I haven’t had time to build my friendships. I honestly get stressed about who I will ask to be in my wedding party. Does anyone else feel this way? I feel like it’s so hard to make new friends once you graduate college.

Oh I feel you on the wedding part. And everything else.


Same here 🤷‍♀️


Same here


Honestly, I think I delayed getting engaged to my GF because I was (selfishly) embarrassed I wouldn’t have any groomsmen at my wedding since I don’t have many friends either. Luckily I married into a huge family so a ton of bro in laws stepped in. But fast fwd to my 30s, I get depressed when I think I’ve lived this long and don’t have a close knit friends group. To the point that I think something is wrong with me. It gets extremely hard after you have kids too because your time is limited. I have a ton of acquaintances and my network is decent but haven’t clicked with anyone. No advice here but I feel for you!


Small wedding parties are underrated.


Same here. I have a 2 close friends but they don’t live in the same city. Covid messed up my chance to get out and start building new friendships. Maybe 2021 😬 thinking about trying bumble BFF - have heard good things for women


You are not alone :)

Making friends takes initiative and effort

On the bright side, you do save money with not having to have brides maid dresses made. Also I have heard of couples deciding not to have bridal parties and groomsman foe this reason
