Do you stick exclusively with your age group or do you have older friends and some younger ones also? With which ones do you feel the most comfortable going out, etc.

Some, of my friends have the same age with me. But i dont think having a friend that is younger or older, friendship will not work. It's a matter of how you deal with each other. I'm happy with my friends. It's fun to be with them, specially, when were going outside, having fun, go to the beach. I feel so comfortable with them. And i'm sharing all my secrets with them because i trust them.

most of my friends are older than me - there isn't any issues with it either... we are all on the same page if you know what i mean... I have way more in common with my older friends than people my age.. but we don't really think of age differences when we are together..

I have friends of all ages, quite a few that are older than me and also quite a few that are quite a bit younger than me, as well as some that are around the same age as me. I feel comfortable going out with all of them, most recently I have had a few nights out with one of my very good friends who is about 7 years younger than me and we have a good night every time.

I have friends of all age groups and from a variety of different backgrounds. I believe that it is beneficial, and more fulfilling to have different kinds of friends. For one, there is a greater wealth of experiences to draw from, which allows me to see perspectives from many different angles. It might be easier to hang out with people that have similar experiences as me and enjoy similar things. But I enjoy branching out a lot. I enjoy people. And great people come in all kinds of different packages.

I have one friend who is a year younger than me and one friend who is several years older than me. The rest of my friends are only a few months older than me.

age doesnt matter. got tons of friends from different age groups. younger ones keep me updated on whats-new-these-days, while older ones share experiences and lessons-learned :)
