After the fact, we assume my H had met our thieves in person. That they'd been planning to rob the house on that day, but didn't when they realized someone was home and made up a reason as to why they were knocking on the door.
In the age of everyone being amazing on social media, I don't think it's unusual for average to start feeling inferior. People seem to feel the need to be super interesting with really unique hobbies in order to be average. Sorrynotsorry, but I'm over it, personally. Kudos to those who truly overachieve in the hobby arena. But for me personally, I feel busy enough as it is.

But I'm cranky today. Also, chronically a bitch, so....
I'm really tired of the silence. And I'm sick of women feeling like they have to tip toe around others' feelings just to tell the damn truth.
Have a bit of patience that this is new territory for her as well. But don't sacrifice your own comfort. I'd probably ask her out to lunch (just the two of you). Let her know that you're really happy for her that she's happy in her new marriage. But also let her know that, although, you think these people are pleasant enough, forcing a relationship is unnecessary and feels unnatural. Remind her that you're an adult and forging relationships with other adults is YOUR choice. YOU'LL take the lead.
