All of my friends are at least 10 years older than me but that is mainly due to my profession.

If we human able to bond with animals and established friendship that last, loyal and fulfilling like the pets that we have so much for age difference that is not a difference when it comes to true and genuine friendship


All of your posts make me smile, you're always so happy, and your English is so cute.

I don't think so. I have friends that are decades older than me and then I have other good friends that are teenagers.

Not exactly. It kinda only depends on what kind of friends you are! You wouldn't have the same kind of friendship you do with someone your own age than what you would have with someone that's 5 years younger than you are.

I think you have to realize the differance between friend and aquaitence. I see dozens of young ones everyday . We talk, joke ,tease and like the same things from music to the pink and blue wisps of hair and tats. but I would not be going to hang out with them. I'm older than there parents. There's nothing wrong with communiction between all ages but mind set is miles apart.

No I do not think so. I think having friends that are older are good to, since they will have insight and have lots of experiences to share. Though it is hard for me to make friends who are teens or kids. Just the immature attitude and such really pisses me off.

I don't think it matters really.
I mean you'll run into people of all sorts of ages during a life time and you don't befriend them due to age.
Most of the time you might not even know their age until you've already become friends.
It shouldn't matter as long as it's a friendship. (^__^)

In friendship, age holds less relevance than most of the other factors that can define a friendship. As long as you can openly communicate with and learn from each other, enjoy the things you have in common, and respect the things which you don't have in common, a friendship can endure a great deal. I suppose that criteria can apply to any type of relationship, however. I figure above all else, it's about respect.

Not at all. I have friends from all different age groups, a friend is a friend regardless of age, gender, or race.

Not a bit. I have friends who are much older than me. But since they are, it's also hard to keep in touch since some of them are busy with work or other things an adult keeps his self busy to.

I am with you with the mind set and ways of thinking. At first it is just merely acquaintance and talk however, when they consider and tells you like your their friend. In my opinion, you have a moral responsibility to do and go with it. I go out with them and i am the one to call their parents. They are my student but now i am their older sister. I have a friends whom are 20 decades older than me and they give me insight and learn things when i am with them. In fact, my boss before is one my closest friend the same goes with my Dad who is more than a friend of mine than being a Dad. Again it is directly depending on what kind of friendship you got and and how or what you do when with each other. It is not the most popular and cool things and it is not the norm however age difference of 30 decades can establish friendship and can be genuine.

Now if your the person who doesn't agree.... Well.... The problem is probably you.

Not really, no. On average, most of my friends are around 5 years younger to at least 10 years older than me. Keeping in touch with each other does indeed become an issue from time to time, though. Nonetheless, I enjoy hanging out with them.
