I have friends who I've met in person. We always hit if off so fast.
Meet right off the next day and let's go do to this place, event, and talk randomly hitting off with more groups.

I found most of my new friends on Steam, rather than Facebook, which is really shocking and surprising to me, since I use to be a Facebook user. Well not anymore, I guess. I haven't used Facebook for nearly 3 months. The last time I used it was on January 10th, 2014!

So I find all of my new friends on Steam, instead of Facebook.

No, I don't care to make new friends, they are too involved with their devices. The actual ability and respect to carry on a true conversation, and pay attention to what your friend is saying, without distractions, no longer exists.
Next time you go out to dinner, look around, are people talking to one another, or constantly checking their phones between bites.

I remember how friends in high school would get super jealous if I or anyone else hung out with someone else more than them. The days.

In my situation, making new friends in college has made it easier to let go of a lot of old high school friends (some of which I've just lost contact with, some of which I probably shouldn't be in contact with). For the few high school friends that I do keep in touch with, I fear that I'm beginning to appear too distant to them, because I'm spending more time on campus and doing things with my college friends. But such is life. I'd hope that if they have any issue with me, they'd approach me directly about it, but that's probably being too optimistic.

Having different "groups" of friends can be straining, but it's all about how you balance it. I also used to have friends who absolutely hated each other. That was never fun, but I was careful, and I somehow remained in good standing with the both of them.

I talk to everyone and anyone. I'm not the type of person who judge people based on appearance, race, disorders or social status.


And I don't get into the politics of friendships. I don't get into the politics of anything, really... I just think we're put on this Earth to have fun and be friendly towards one another, and some people think that being dramatic and complicated is fun... I'm not about that life.


I notice that people at my workplace love to get into the politics of things, love to make dramas and love to make others look bad. But I just don't care about any of that, it's like... if people want to start drama with me, I either walk away or just tell them off. I'm not afraid of being "fired"... since I don't care about money.

Like I can live off social security. I'm not here to tolerate people's sh*tty behaviour or be involved in their stupid political/power games.

Same here. This why I don't bother to date, either. Mobile devices have destroyed our ability to communicate with others face-to-face. It's all about 'being connected' now - something I won't ever do myself. If you (speaking generally) can't have the decency to pay attention to me instead of your stupid device, I want nothing to do with you.

Go listen to Sleeping with a Friend by Neon Trees. That is how I feel. Ladies.

This is the reason I will never have a party or anything because I will have to invite a crowd of people who will not find any common ground. I'm like a one size fits all but what I truly seek is anime friends, these are the real people who know the real me.

Hmm...well when it comes to me there's big bridge to walk across from acquaintance to friend.

stranger--------->acquaintance----------->colleague/associate--------------------------------------------------------->friend

Kind of. I have A LOT of friends. i am not a social butterfly, in fact i kind of feel the same way. but i have people who constantly want to hang out with me. and i think this may have happened when i met some people through college, and they introduced me to their friends. at the beginning of college, too, i used to go to so many "college" parties, so that probably contributed to it. i've picked 3 people i've grown close to as, i guess, my "best friends."
all i wanna do is just want to sit at home as a hermit with her cats, though.

Once I got to college I somehow forgot how to make friends. That and people in my major were not the usual type of people I tend to gravitate to. I mean I could talk to everyone and meet up with them on campus. But it was never something that would last. So I literally graduated college with no friends who spoke to me after I was gone.

Now at my job people don't want to become actualy friends with me because my mother is a few position above it. I'm pretty sure people think I'd spy on them. I wouldn't, but I can understand their trepidation. So friends at work is a no go.

I have a decent batch of friends. I adore them all. Sadly though, none of them remotely care about anime (save for one). It makes discussing my main intrests with people difficult. I'm always willing to make new friends. I'm just not very good at it.

I have a few old friends that I keep in touch with; phone calls, more vicariously, facebook...
I made a new friend at work, she's really pretty nice... engaged, so just a friend.... (she is rather attractive.)
I can usually make friends kind of fast, within a few weeks but they are far and few between.

To quantify/qualify; A friend is someone that I can share opinions, ideas, or a secret or two with and not have to worry much about embarrassing myself. They are also someone that I can have a debate with and not have to constantly be on the defensive.
Most people that I talk to/ deal with at work are acquaintances and little more. I may seem a bit shallow but I don't know much difference between a colleague and an acquaintance.

Most people I meet that become close, we tend to hit-it-off almost immediately.

I'm definitely not a herder of any sort, even if my own family died today, I wouldn't care LOL. The worst thing I can do is promise to do something I cannot fulfill. There is 100% chance that I'll show no loyalty.
