I know how you feel. It is very hard when you move. I have moved to a small town about 6 months ago. I really like it here but a lot of people seem to talk to you only when they want to find something out from you. It is very hard. I just be nice. But it is hard. The ones that get me are the ones that dont even acknowledge you. They seem to treat you like you shouldnt be in "THERE" town. It is hard, but it will get better. I am slowly meeting people, and some are nice.

Give it a bit of time. Hopefully it might change. Do you still keep in touch with your old friends? I do, but they live a fair distance away, so it is hard to see them

They still exist though they're extremely rare. We find regular friends, but those real friends find us. I have few "real" friends and i'm lucky to have them. Eventhough we haven't seen each other for years, i am still secured with our friendship.

yeah i guess u have a point. i think its gonna take along time to settle in. i guess the lesson here is to never ruin a solid relationship... it could be the only one u could get in a life time TY for ur post

Maybe you're seeing it a bit wrongly? Maybe they're not so used to you yet, so don't contact you otherwise. I think you can try catching up with them and spending time with them for no reason at all. If they refuse such an offer, then I think you can just trash them, for they're clearly trying to use you. But if they agree to spend time with you, good, try to spend some quality time together and build relationships, its not that easy!
