Since moving to Houston over a year ago I've made a few friends. Not as many as I'd like but a few. Out of those friends, I feel like I haven't met my total equal. Now don't get me wrong. I've met some great people, but it seems I don't like I don't have my group of go to girls.

I've always said that finding good girlfriends is like finding a boyfriend. Think about finding a good mate. It's not easy to find someone who's on the same page as you. Someone that you have a connection with and enjoy their company. So, when it comes to finding girlfriends it can be equally as tough.

It seems like my girlfriends in Milwaukee were there when you needed them. Not matter what it was. If you were having a problem, they were there. If you wanted to grab some food last minute, they were there. If you needed a work out partner, they were there.

All of them were so different and yet we all were such a great group together!

Like my best friend "Marissa," she and I had the same schedule. So when we became friends we were inseparable. We'd workout together, take naps at the same time, and we would even go grocery shopping together. We have the same sense of humour, we act very similar, have similar personalities, and we have each others back.

Or my friend "Rachel," whom I met because she called up the radio station. It may sound weird, but she was listening to my morning show the day I talked about how my boyfriend broke up with me. I was balling on the air like a girl just had her heart ripped out by the guy she loved and he threw it on the ground and did the Mexican hat dance on it.

I think she must've felt a little sorry for me. There I am in a new town, with a new job and the one semi stable part of my life, my boyfriend, decided to break up with me over the phone.

At first I was apprehensive to meet her for lunch, but then I thought, "Oh what the hell!" We ended up having lunch for something like 3-4 hours. The great part about her is that she's very open and in a way has a motherly understanding. She's the girl likes taking care of people.

There are so many other great girlfriends that I had there. My landlord I guess you could say was my first friend. My friend "Clarissa" who was a part of the group.

We had such a great group of girls. A group that I could rely on and vice versa. I can't truly say that here. Not that these girls aren't great people but we maybe in different phases.

I feel like girls flake on me a lot. We make plans and they don't get back to you until 6 hours later. Lately I've been spending my weekends at home because my girls aren't as reliable or on the same page as I am.

I would like to have one single friend that I can have as my go to girl ad not worry about her bailing on me everytime I turn around.

Love you. Don't give up. If there's one thing about you that I found out the hard way (and a funny way)... you're a fighter and you're strong (despite what you might think of yourself.) You WILL be o.k... with "solid" friends or not.

IMHO (WWRD) - a piece of advice we can hear a hundred times before it truly sinks in:

Don't expect of others the behaviors, acts, or manners that you yourself do, or hold in high standards. You will only set yourself up for disappointment that way. If someone "flakes out on you", that could just be "their" thing... try not to take it personally.

In the meantime, I can't wait to hear about any "takers" to this blog. :)

Miss you...
