its so natural that we all do not have the opportunity to be with the same friends all through our life...at some point of time we get parted with our friends and still keep in touch with them...but now i wonder how can we make friends in a totally new environment?...will u start speaking first or expect others to come and speak to u??.. i had the opportunity of doing my schooling in different schools and i gotta make new friends everytime...i generally expect others to take initiative of talking to me...i had completed my graduation now and even in college others started to talk initially and now i have a handful of friends... so feel free to share your experiences when and how u make friends and how to overcome the total new environment with people looking strangers to u initially?...

well...i don't need friends actually...co'z even if i do only have few of them..i know there true and perhaps can be a lifetime friends..what is many when there just appear when you had the many things in your life..but in times when you needed them most..their ignoring you..

Hi there Pree! I agree. It's really sad that we can't stay friends with all of our friends forever. But like you said, it is natural and there are some changes that we cannot avoid from happening even if we wanted to. All that's left to do is be happy and thankful that we were able to create happy memories that we can carry with us no matter where we go in life. I used to have lots of friends when I was studying. Even on the early years of my marriage with my husband. Maybe because of lack of time and sudden maturity, or focusing more in getting prepared for the future, I had less time for friends. I just started making new friends recently when our son is in his pre-school. I became friends with some of the other parents there. I guess that making friends with me comes naturally when I spend time with other people.
