Good day Fellow Mylotters, Before, I find it easy to make friends. That, whenever I do meet new people, I easily get in touch with them, then, we became friends just like that. But now, I somehow find it difficult. That, it is not easy, even you are in a crowd and meet new people, still, you cannot open a new friendship. And I am wondering, is there any difference before and now. Why is it easy before and now its not.

how old are u now? maybe you become wiser and simple detail that u notice in a person stop u from pushing through friendship and u r just not aware of it. The young people are easy to make friends, to mingle, in an hour they are getting along with an acquaintance but as u age, you create ur reservation.

This is the case with me personally and it is because that I really just get rather selective and rather guarded with new people. The criteria of who I would consider a friend has been something that has changed a bit since the moment that I made them since I was very young. I'm sure that there are many friends that I have made and long since lost, that would not pass the acquittance level had I met them as an adult as opposed to younger. In the end, there are just a lot of times where experiences have made it something where making friends is not easy and really it should not be. The very nature of friendship can get watered down if you make friends just for the sake of having friends. There has to be some kind of common ground. You might not agree on everything, you will have your disagreements, but sometimes there is a good reason why you are not connecting with certain people.

Probably as we get older we are more cautious with who we want to associate with. And I've noticed if you have older kids and a job you have even less time to do thing ans associate with people.

I'm like that sometimes too. Sometimes I feel like I'm so friendly sometimes I feel like being snobby. Before, I used to be so confident. Now, I feel like really shy.

Maybe because you have been grown up! The soul is no longer much doubt busy and open as before. Besides, we tend to hunker down as we age.
