How Do You Make Friends After Breakup

Group Therapy: How Do You Make New Friends at 36?

This question comes from Group Therapy in our TrèsSugar Community. Feel free to add your advice in the comments!

My six year relationship just ended. I allowed it to absorb most of my life and as a result i am not as close to my friends as I was. I cant help but feel like the odd one out as I've missed out on quite a few of their shared experiences.  when i go out with acquaintances I feel like the cousin your mum forces you to take to your best friends party!  lol Everybody knows everybody else — and none of them know me. 

I'm actually trying to create a new life for myself with people i have common interests with but when I go out I feel like I'm just tagging along to someone else's life. Is that normal?  Any ideas for making and keeping new friends?  PS I just started my own business and for the most part work from home.  Most of the people I meet are clients or potential clients and I'm a little weird about socializing with people who pay me!  Is that weird?
