Which Stage of your life time that you've made most friend, before primary school? Primary School Junior Midder School/Senior Midder School Colleague/University Work After Work After retirement For me, I made most true friends during my middle school time, it might because we have the same mother tongue here, and we not yet have any relationship in ecomomy and not yet got that much desire of competition then. But my Dad used to disagree with me and is not that happy with me only having old friends here. That;s true and I do think that I should make more new friends in order to run my biz better in future. But to tell the truth, no matter how many friends that I've made in other stages of my lifetime, I don't have that kind of good feeling same as what I have towards those middle school friends, though not all my middle schoole schoolmate could become my best friends hehe. Looking forward to hearing from your opinions here. Thanks. Andy

I have made most friends at work. At high school I wasn't interested in my classmates because they were boring. At uni - the same story. When I started work and I met people who are not my age but share my opinions - then I made friends. Sometimes we were competitors, which was not very pleasant. I have also discovered that most of my friends are former colleagues and we became friends after we stopped working together.

Hi Leonarda, Thanks for comment. Well, it is interesting that you've got so many former colleagues as your friends:) WBR,Andy

But I also have lost (or maybe it is more precise to say "got rid of") some fake friends when we worked together and they tried to play tricks and take advantage of me. But I guess life is like that and it is quite normal.

Yep, I like friends too, and I enjoy making new friends here, but this doesn't mean that I will forget the old friendship here. As times goes on, it is pretty weird that every one of us seem to be pretty busy and people don't contact with each other that often like they used to do though commnucation methods are more & more convenient. And even people now live neighborly don't intend to know each other. What a new world! Thanks for your comment afterall. WBR, Andy

If friends do not come to us due to their own problems, we blame them. If they come to us for every problem, we blame them. Hence I do not insist that they should keep me informed. If they inform I go out of the way to help them. If they do not, I do not go out of the way, because I wouldn't know of it.

I made the most friends...best friends in High School. I still keep it touch with the girl who was my best friend all throughout high school. I don't have many (flesh) friends right now, hence why I hangout at Mylot. :-)

We are in the same boat:) But I do have got quite some new colleagues/friends in my company, but I don't often go out playing with them.

I made most friends only in my school days. Though i could only meet limited number of people in school, i made strong friendships with many. College life is not really interesting like the school life and making friends is not something i am able to do often because i hate my college.

Hi Suraj, It is my noon break time. Thanks for your comment here. Sorry to hear that you hate your colleague! I hope it is not that a bad time for you. Anyway, a friend in need is friend indeed. Seem that you were in difficult time in your college, if you still had made some friends then, they must be your true friends.:) With b.rgds, Andy

I would have to say that between the ages of 17 and 20-21 was when I had the largest amount of friends....and they were spread out all over southern ontario (canada)..It was during that time that I did the most traveling in my dancing career and since back then the industry was very much a "tightknit/we're like family" type thing rather than the cutthroat crap it is now alot of us girls were really close friends.....

Hi RavenladyJ, Thakns for sharing. Seems that you like dancing quite a lot and will surely make quite some friends via Dancing in different placese. Friends are mosted having the same interest/Habit, so it would be quite nature to have made so many friends in that ages. B.rgds, Andy

Frankly speaking.. I am more of an Introvert..and i seldom mix with others..and therefore i have made a handful of friends... Ofcourse i had some friends during all my career right from school to till this day.. But only a few of them i have.. upon whom i fully trust... and they are my School friends ...and even this day we meet on occassions and enquire about each others welfare.

Andy, I made many friends when I was in college. I even got my wife during that stage. At that time, I was so involved with campus politics and this could be the reason why I made most friends during my college days.
