I can see how it would be a dissapointment when you have made plans with certian people and they have not followed through...in whatever way shape or form.
I can help to thing think that while you went on your trip to form some independance and find yourself in a way some of the people you met may not of had the same reason's. When people are out of their usual environment and no one knows them it is easy to embelish certian things in their lives. To just be a differant person. So once your home it is back to relatity. Or perhaps once they are home they just get caught back up into their lives and dont have the time or want to make the time for new friends. I dont know if that is what has happened here Sadsong and I really do hope that neither one of these is the case.
You had the streangth to go on this trip on your own and come out of your shell to try to make new friends without all the thoughts that your projecting now. Your a wonderful strong woman and I dont think you could of pushed anyone away.
