Human Friends or Rather have PETS

I find it extremely upsetting when friends do not return phone calls for several days or even weeks. For whatever reason it may be that they are busy or even mad at you the least they could do is call to let you know what it is. I find it very exhausting to keep friends. I think pets is a much smarter way to go. What do you think?

True friends will be there for you. If not straight way but will be there. Those that don't bother keeping the contact with you are more likely aquaintances. People can talk to you, but pets can not talk back. Animals like cats and dogs would always be there for you and will always be happy to have a cuddle. But as to advise, they can not give it. People and pets really have their own qualities. Look around and see if you have at least 1 person you feel appears to be always there for you. Not including my family, I had 2 people who were there for me and I was there for them. But something happen and I have found that I really only have 1 person who is there for me. It is great that I have other friends but they appear to be friends because of something in common which is our kids at school. I have a feeling that once my child leaves the school to go to another one, the friendship with these people will die. For me, I think it would have to be friends, as long as I have 1 friend that I can turn to.

I have a few friends that are like that they never ring or turn up until they want something.I have learnt that if they only want me when they want something then i tend to leave them to stew now so they know how it feels.That works and lets face it there are always other people out there that are alot better at being friends rather than the ones who use you.Pets you can talk to and they will always show you love,but they can not hold a conversation,mind you they can not answer back either.Happy Mylotting.

I think that you are calling friends to people you just know. Being friends is a lot more than that. I have friend and they care about me as I care about them. They are there when I need them and so am I. I have a dog. She is a good company as dogs go. But I wouldn´t compare Lola with my friends. She is a darling and naughty German Shepherd and I love her. But I can´t laugh and cry with her. I hope you find some good friends soon. Luck!
