Do you miss your friends?

April 21, 2007 8:20pm CST
Naturally I think we all will, however I've never really had a true friend in real life so I've always told myself I don't need them but lately I do miss them. This doesn't mean I haven't had friends which I've enjoyed their company, it's just most are "hit and miss" meaning when they need me they're here and when they don't well there gone. It seems most times this happens and I'm rubbish when It comes to making friends. I'm like a young mr bean, not great on convos because I find most people my age slightly strange. (I guess this is me) Also I've started miss my school, which no longer stands.was hoping to try and visit a few of my ex teachers but it seems they've moved away. What about you, care to share? ~Joey P.s by far not a great discussion but as always I value everyone response and I will try to reply to everyone. =)

that is so sad Joey, maybe you can make friends with older people, it really doesn't matter the age as long as they are good people and good to you as well.

yep.i have friends who are more than twice my age. and i really learn a lot from them. they look at things differently already compared to friends my age. and it's really great to know their views in life,too.

It is not necesary that the person feels missing feeling about very close and best friend! People do miss their friends, even some time very casual friends! This is very normal feeling! People also feel the missing the best friend, that is also a fact!

I guess we all miss our friends. No matter what type of person you are, you still have someone that you called "friend". In my case, I'm living far away from my friends and I miss them so much. It's because of the company and comfort that we had shared. I believe that we miss them simply because we don't want to be alone. It's in human nature that we need to interact with people. And the reason for this is that we will go insane being alone. So we need them, and yes I miss them terribly.

Hey wildflower =) Thanks for response, means a lot to me. I do think people can live without friends, I know I can it's just when I'm in this mood or when I'm having issues and problems and realize I only have family who are there for me. Certainly lame I know. (no worries about going insane, i already am) joke hehe ~Joey

I have had a few close frinds in my lifetime. I really don't have any right now. My best friend passed away over 20 years ago. Another very good friend moved far away. Another kind of went wacko on me...nothing to serious...but after getting married, it was harder to keep some good friends. I think as you get older it is much more difficult to find great friends. Everyone is already so glued to their schedules and way of life that they have no room for you. Or many people already have their own groups of exclusive friends. I am single now and have been for quite a while. I have a hard time finding people I have anything in common with. I guess I am not very mainstream. It would be nice to have at least on true friend. Man or woman. Since I am a guy, it has always been harder for me to have female friends. Other than being married, I have never had a true female friend. So you are not alone, by any stretch.

If only our mylot friends could be our friends out side of the site huh? I think I've more friends here than I ever have and know this sounds crazy but there are a lot of decent folk on mylot who'd break a leg to see you happy. (I count myself in this, as I would for a lot of my fellow mylotters) Thanks for sharing your comment, It was nice in a sad sort of way to see that I wasn't just me finding it hard to keep them/ make friends. ~Joey

ahh, the photo nostalgia...I go through that a lot too. I try to remind myself that they were good times, and better to have had them and miss them, than to not have had them in the first place.

I also sometimes think "who needs them" but I miss a lot of my friends or at least miss those moments when we could talk and just hang out, cause truth be said if I had to meet up with them I don't know if it would just ruin the memory as most of them might be totally different then they used to be. Not that I wouldn't be willing to meet up with them, I often think about it. Everyone just seems to have gone their own way or gotten to snobby, and I isolate myself a lot so guess it's hard for me to make new ones, and even if I had close friends it would be hard for to go out because of monetary reasons, money for bus ticket, money for a drink....

I miss my friends from school too, specifically..my high school friends. Friends that I had during those times are really friends...thick and thin, good times and bad times. But we kinda lost track now, some of them got married and left the country, some change address, in other words I do not know where they are now. I would love to see them again.

I think it is difficult to see people as friends sometimes because if they disappear off the scene you feel upset and lose confidence in making friends. You will always know a true friend, they will be there for you if they have moved a hundred miles away. You know you can contact them at any time and it may seem ages since you last saw them but you can still pick up the phone or contact them and the conversation just happens. I have friends I consider true friends who I haven't seen for ages, they are still true friends, unlike people who are always around me who are very fickle in their friendship. You will just know a true friend!

It's not the quantity of friends we have, but the quality. I have very few friends myself, I am very shy. But the ones I do have would do anything for me, and I value them as my own family. It seems that when you least expect it, somebody will pop into your life. My best friend and I met 5 years ago at work, we were both waitresses. We hated each other at first, I was the new girl, and she pretty much ran the place. One day when it was slow, she started talking to me about her son ...and the conversation just continued. We no longer work together, and I have moved out of town, but we still talk almost every day, get together at least once a week, watch each other's kids...You cant go looking for friendship, it finds you. In the meantime, value you wife, for she is your BEST friend. And if you're ever looking for conversation, feel free to drop me a line...I love to converse!

I recently moved to Georgia, and I had lived in a small town in texas my whole life. I don't know anyone here in Georgia, and i've never been out of texas until now. I really miss all of my friends there in texas, because its hard to stay in touch with them being so far away. I think that you miss your true friends more, rather than someone that you just met before you left.
