I do believe that for women it can be difficult to find and maintain quality friendships. However that is by our own choices and actions. I have a lot of friends that let their friendships fade in an effort to be an attentive Wife or Mom. We get so wrapped up in what we feel our responsibilities are that we can become busy taking care of anything and everything but ourselves and our relationships outside of family. This can devastate women when children move out, relationships end...and they have no one there to confide in.
It takes a certain degree of effort and work to maintain life’s responsibilities while still making time for yourself but it is possible.
I second the posts on finding people that share your interests and not limiting yourself to those in their 20's. Most of my friends are older than me, but they do range in age from 20's to 50's.
