Dear B the C,
As you might expect, CBT counselling is my recommendation, as it would enable you to recognize and define the ruts, and work out the most fruitful way of emerging from them. Apparently its not so much that you need new friends but different friends, more suited to the directions in which you wish to move.
And I think you're right that too many people these days concentrate siolely on the mating aspect of relationships, rather than also being prepared to have fulfilling friendships that are not about love and sex. I think you know what you need to do, and see no reason why you won't be able to succeed, so long as you're not too hasty or impatient about it
