We often launch ourselves into the friendship fray, scheduling coffee mornings, play dates, dinners, group visits to IKEA all for the sake of making those all important (although often short-lived) friendships. It can follow a bout of over-scheduling, it can creep up on you after a year of care-free socializing, but perhaps it is most common among expats who have moved many times, who know intimately well the urgent need for friends in a new location, but are bone tired of the whole damn process.
Throughout our time as expats we face so much pressure, both internally and from the outside world to make friends. Symptoms include the desire to hole up in your house and never resurface; late night Whatsapp sessions with your besties back home (these can sometimes include six besties in four different countries all at once); a feeling that no-one you meet here will ever be as wonderful, fun or understanding as the friends you left behind; a general lethargy towards small talk or being with people who you don’t .
But what if, after a while, you don’t feel like spending what little free time you have making idle chit chat, or suffering through yet another new mums gathering at the school where you force down the instant coffee whilst answering the usual three questions: Where are you from? As a long-term expat with five relocations under my belt, I have faced this situation often enough to have formulated some insights into what I call Expat Friendship Fatigue.
