Friends....How many of us have them?

friend
noun
1.a person whom one knows and with whom one has a bond of mutual affection, typically exclusive of sexual or family relations.


Where exactly do adults find friends? 
I mean as an child, you find a see another kid on the playground with the same pink sneakers you have and you ask them if you want to play.....And its instant friendship

But as an adult, certainly as a woman, where do you go or what do you do (without looking like a uber creep)to find a friend? I mean where do women over the age 25 go to foster lasting platonic relationships with other women?

As professionals,you spend lots of time with coworkers who often make connections with but also as professionals, you can't really open up as your true self.

There are former love interest,they often know you best, but this could open the door to complications with present lovers.

Or the friends we have had forever, the ones who have one more harm than good to us, but we keep them around in attempt to be loyal....


Do we forever rely on toxic 'friendships',or remain social hermits for the rest of our days?

The tale of two identities.

As children, most of us are raised to go to college, get good jobs and strive for greatness. As black children, most of us are raised to go to college, be better than 'them' so you can't be denied, strive for greatness and act accordingly in spaces that are not our own. As a lot of us grow up, we take heed to our lessons, aiming for success, entering spaces (and tax brackets) that weren't able to be accessed by our grandparents and sometimes our own parents, but struggle because we aren't taught the rules of 'the game' nor do we start out from a equal space than our colleagues.  Imagine taking your 5 year old child, telling them they have learn all the 1st grade through 6th grade material at once in a room full of 11 year olds who are already dealing with advance placement work...
