Yeah some of them i really just see through other people or only really at big events like a birthday or a marriage or a funeral...
or some of us just every now and then will go out and play pool or go to a concert or occasionally our group will get together in a large group like back in the day.

Like when we were young getting together in large groups was common. now that we are older its rare because people all work different times/days/hours, are more busy with family(like some just do the family thing), we have all moved away from each other, some friends dont get along with other friends so you cant invite this person if you invite that person, not everyone is free or has money on the same weekend, etc
Oh and some friends just want to play video games or just get high or etc lol

I guess with some people they just stay the same and others move on, or some people change, etc

Like some people you dont even have a falling out with but you just drift appart.

I've had good friends die also. And one of them was the sort of guy that was like the glue that held us all together.

I think when you get older you just cannot be bothered alot of the time or you just dont have the free time or the energy or the money that you used to have.
Things feel like an effort more or you worry about how you will get home or the next day or where you will sleep and etc. All things that i never used to worry about.

I was never good at making and maintaining relationships, and I think I've grown used to the solitude so much that I prefer being alone. I mean I talk to people online who have similar interests but that's about it. It's hard for me to relate to people my age because I'm not interested in all the things that are "popular" that everyone else seems to like. I'm not opposed to making friends, I just don't see it working out at this point.

I've got plenty of people who I'll talk to however very few people I trust.

Actually let me rephrase that.

Zero people I trust.

Mmmm no I don't "really" have friends. I get along well enough with people at work, and I guess I might sometimes go out drinking with them once every few months, but that's it. I just don't care for making friends with people. I don't know anyone who has the same interests, and I just find hanging out with others to be kind of boring when I could be doing something else I enjoy far more. I used to have plenty of friends though, but we either moved away and just drifted apart to the point of having zero contact, or they turn on me over petty bullshit, which seems to happen a lot. Also ever since i've been single and been just by myself, i've been enjoying life so much more.

I wouldn't say I don't have any friends. I've got my few close ones, and some acquaintances through them, but that's pretty much it. I have a hard time connecting with people and can't get comfortable around most. I've been told before that I'm too self concious when I'm around people I'm not used to. It doesn't bother me in the least, and I don't really have the need to find more friends, I'm more of a quiet and to-my-self person as it is. It's a bit selfish, but I guess you could say I'm the type of person to wait for someone to approach me for a friendship rather than approach others.

I don't go out of my way to make friends anymore

But if I happen to make some friends along the way, I wouldn't mind having a few

You're introverted. That's not a bad thing at all.


You two remind me of one another

I really don't have friends irl most of them are well online. Mostly because well I am a introvert and well have a small social anxiety problem. i'm not afraid to go out are anything I go outside everyday and walk around the neighborhood. I just have a hard time talking to others.

Now if I do make friends irl then well great lol but for the most part somewhat hard to do for me.

I have friends irl and online. I'm just the type of person that sort of needs friends so I don't drive myself crazy being alone. I don't think being alone is a terrible thing, but I'm just the type of person to get lonely quickly if I'm not occupied.

After my months of forum wanderings, I have finally found a group of my people.
Some people on here have said that they don't have any friends, but let me add something to this: how many of you have never had a (human) friend entirely? That's me, at least. Anyone who tries to be a "friend" will always ditch me after they get what they want. It's practically a law of physics, even my extended family did it (heck, some people even did a bet of sorts to see how long they could make me think they were my friends).
So while I didn't experience what you people did, I can honestly say that I know what it's like to have no one. I like to help people and be there for them, because I know what it's like to have no fellow person there for me so if you ever need support, here I am (no, I do not text, talk on the phone, skype, or whatever, I DO write. From my chair. Over the computer. And I'm okay with that.).

I don't care. I am pretty much a schizoid, I think.
But, I don't mind some company from time to time.

No. I have friends....though I have very few IRL. I have tried to grow my friend circle by trying to hang out with people at work. However I never set up plans and don't really want to. They have invited me to hang out, but I would look for an excuse to get out. I appreciate that they invited me, but I just end up not wanting to. I've stayed to myself basically my whole life and it's how I feel most comfortable. I'm pretty sure I'm to the point of pushing my friends away and I don't really blame them either. As I can go months on end without hanging out with them. Though for the most part I tend to be busy with work or family things, and whatever free time I get I want to be in solitude. However when I do hang out it's a lot of fun and special....you just have to catch me at a certain time.

I have plenty of friends and acquaintances but I only have a few that I see every week. I've become quite an introvert and I could actually do with even less socializing. I usually make new friends from them approaching me first because my social anxiety keeps me from starting conversations with people I don't know. Though even if I didn't have so much anxiety I'm not really looking to meet new people. it can become a hassle when everyone's trying to hangout all the time. I like having time to myself. I'm starting to enjoy having online friends because they are someone I can talk to but I have no obligation to meet up and hang out.
