Hey Man, 
I’m 40 and recently divorced. Obviously there’s a lot THERE to deal with, but one of the things that I’ve really been stunned to realize since I’ve moved out on my own is that I don’t have any friends! I didn’t realize that I’d come to rely so much on my wife as a source of friendship. We had social, casual friendships with other parents, but it’s only now - without my ex - that I realize I’ve been without real friendships for the better part of a decade. And now that I’m single again, I feel like a pariah. Couples don’t seem to really want to have me over as a single person (or maybe it just feels awkward for me) and I’m missing friends that are truly mine and know me well. I’m so busy with work and childcare as a solo parent, I don’t even know how to make new friends. Any advice?

Signed, 
Lonely on the Lower East Side
