Now, typically humans are "herders" we keep in little herds, best place to see this is high school and college with all the different social groups, but every now and than you see someone who can mingle in those groups. and not stick with 1.
I sadly am one of them,
i say sadly because I enjoy socializing, but only want a few friends.

Now recently with work, I have made 4 new friends, and reunited wiht an old aquantance who is now friend status, now I have 4 friends I hang out with weekly, these new 4 are better and worse in certain ways, each singular person is part of different groups/clicks where as my orignal 4 were all the same,
so my question is, do new friends ever become troublesome to you? not in the fact you dislike them, but hanging with can be bothersome for previous friends? or ruin some things for oyu?

What are friends?
Posted 3/21/14
eat your old friends before they get stale

Yes they do become bothersome mainly because there not willing to go and put forth the effort to interact with my other friends, In my case all my friends were never in the same group in high school yet were still very good friends with each other so I think it's possable as long as everyone puts forth some effort.

Well I have a few friends who dropped out of their anime phase, so it makes hanging out kinda on the fence. We have plenty of other things besides Anime that we can discuss. Certainly. But sometimes because of their drop out phase, they get a little annoying when we start to diss me for watching drama or liking anime. So these days unless certain hangouts are planned, I don't put forth the effort to do anything.

I have no friends and so this is not an issue. When I did interact with people I found I did not belong to any single group or type though. Because of this I could connect with and be friends with a variety of people but it wouldn't ever really pose a problem as far as them connecting as well goes. For some reason it was always pretty easy to bring them together and just have it be pretty normal. No matter what archetype or group people could be categorized in we are all human, despite what some of you may say, and are always going to have some things in common to build off of.

for me, new friends... or more like new clicks, yes I do have them around just for hanging out with.... friends, I only keep very few friends who I trust and so far these few friends of mine are very understanding and I'm very grateful for that.. where else those new clicks of mine.. what I can say are quite sensitive and it seems I have to be very careful when dealing with them, hanging out with them could never be troublesome to me and my friends but if I went out with these few friends of mine, my new clicks turn sour sorry dudes, they need me too~ I'm popular~

I think the word "friend" is used rather loosely by too many people. Godofthesun, when you talk about friends you met at your workplace, to me those are more of acquaintances, unless of course you are hanging out with them outside of work often. As for me, I have a few acquaintances from work, though I don't see them outside of work and honestly for some I think doing so would ruin the co-worker relationship we have because I'm pretty hard to get along with

However, the two people I keep in touch with even miles away that I went to highschool with, them both being in college far from my home, and I still living here working full-time, are my closest friends and I think of them as my brothers. Going through highschool one was more or less a "nerd" or "geek", the other more of the "cool guy" and, at least around soccer season, a "jock". And I just kinda talked to everyone of all groups. To answer your question about new friends though, YES. New friends can be very annoying, for example one of the people at work I used to think of as a friend can't accept my opinions on different games, and always is making fun of the fact I watch anime. (one of thooose people) And I can get along with some others but I know my friends wouldn't like them because I know how all these different personalities can clash. I hope that helps somehow sorry for the wall of text

Hanging out with friends isn't really cumbersome for me. It used to be, but ever since I was 17i've been a lot more social. I usually accept a friend's offer to hang out even if I don't really feel like it. I don't really seek new friends, as I feel I have enough. I have two friends who consider me their "best" friend, so I usually get asked to hang out with either of them like 5 times a week between the two. haha




I consider a friend to be someone I can effectively make a ridiculously stupid/offensive joke to, and he would not mind or find it funny also. Most of my friends are generally in the same "clique" I guess. Some are more "nerdy" than others, and others are more physical than others. But I mean my entire group of close friends (like three or four of us) can all go to a gym together, watch anime, go to a shooting range, play DnD etc., and all be having a good time.

I'm pretty lucky and have had the same friends all through school and beyond, they understand my power level and don't care about it as long as I'm not nerding out all the time. However i find it quite hard to get close to other people, as i'm really two different people. Sucks having to be a closet otaku in order to be accepted by new people.

I made a new friend on Wednesday I think, I'm not good with days but it was within this week. He's really cool, hard worker, has two IT companies up and running and he's only a few years older than me.

I was one of those jock/nerd hybrids in high school. Some days I would hang out with my football teammates, and other days I would be playing Magic the Gathering and watching animes/reading mangas with my other friends. I was one of those guys that knew everyone and was friends with everyone.

I have a group of friends (5 guys, 5 girls) who I've been friends with since day one. We all went to different schools, but we still manage to find the time to get together and hang out. A lot of us are now in or heading into university/college, we still hang out and have fun. Some days we would get together and have those deep talks about eventually going our separate paths, chasing our dream careers, not being able to see each other regularly, future families and all that jazz. It was a deep and emotional time so we promised to each other that we would always be friends, no matter how far apart we are and that we would always have each others backs. I'm really fortunate and thankful to have met these amazing individuals. Couldn't have asked for better friends.

Real, genuine friends don't come along too often on this path we call life, so when you meet one of those special friends, cherish them.
