    • No friends frown.  However, sometimes I do wonder why some people are popular. They don’t want to talk to people like me.

    • I got a text from a former co-worker the other night that made me think of this question.  It’s not that he’s a horrible person or anything, he’s just an odd ball and as I stared at the text, I realized that somehow I’ve gotten stuck with this person for a friend.  

      I had another friend who has passed away now, who used to say God puts people in our life to be our friends for a reason.

    • Tulip, I’m sorry about your friend who has passed away. What she said about God puts people in our life to be our friends for a reason got me thinking. Several years ago I did have a friend who was always there for me when I was going through the initial pain of divorce. She allowed me to vent and cry everyday I was constantly hashing the same things over and over, yet she didn’t show any annoyance (I’m sure she was) and just told me to keep talking to let it out and always gave me a hug with a smile.  

      Unfortunately, as things got better we went our separate ways. Sadly, a few years ago she passed away I didn’t know she was sick. Yes, God did put her in my life for a reason. It’s just so unfortunate that she is no longer here.

    • That’s wonderful that you had somewhere like that there when you needed her.  My BFF was there when I went thru my divorce and I could not have survived it without her.

      The kind of friends we were talking about that long ago day were the kind that get plunked down in our life, the kind you wouldn’t go out and choose for a friend, but somehow they‘re in your life anyway.  We don’t know why, they‘re just there.

    • I am your friend Linda, always remember that!heart

      I know what you mean T, that has happened to me, I see it as a sign from God that maybe that person has a reason that they are in my life, maybe I can’t figure it out, but it must be important or they would have walked away and forgotten me a long time ago, and vice versa.

    • It depends on what kind of friend they are. I don’t have any friends right now excluding cyber friends that I never get to see or have a cup of coffee with. I had this woman once latch onto me at work. I went out with her one night to the club(not really my scene) and after that she just wanted to dominate my life. I would love to have a few friends to have coffee with now and then and talk about kids, husbands, life, whatever, but I don’t want someone coming into my life and bossing me around. So I dropped her. She went around to all our co- workers and told everyone what a terrible friend I am. Well, I may be a terrible friend to her but I am happy.

    • Linda-think of all of us here as friends! we‘re here, we love to listen and don’t judge.

      Tulip-so sorry for the loss of your friend!

      Yes, there’s a person from HS on my FB page.  I’ve never liked her, others think she’s just wonderful.  My BMF throughout school and I just have always thought of her as the most false person we’ve ever met and wonder why the others don’t see her that way?

      If I “unfriend” her-she’d probably do one of her “behind you back stabs”  so I leave her there and just ignore her posts.

    • I absolutely know that the ladies here are compassionate and supportive. Just referring that I have no local friends.

      I agree with Jc it would be nice to have a friend(s) to just have coffee with now and then and chat about whatever. Good for you for dropping the bossy person I wouldn’t want her in my life too.

    • Can’t say I can relate to that, Tulip. I think life is too short to waste my own time and other people’s time playing along with something when my heart isn’t genuinely in it.  

      I’m curious though - what do you think his intentions were in texting you? Does he have a romantic interest in you? Did he want a favor or information from you, or is it that he just likes you as a person and wanted to keep in touch? And if it is that he just genuinely likes you as a person, what is wrong with getting to know him and possibly forming a friendship with him?
