I moved here right before the outbreak last March and it's been difficult to make friends. The people I knew dropped me like a hot potato in lieu of their spouses or existing friends. The only person that's in my "bubble" from my past treats me like a drinking buddy. They just want to smoke and swear about their life & lack of ambition then shut down when I try to start a meaningful intelligent conversation. Normally I would discourage this kind of friendship but they're all I have got right now.
