Q & A

How diverse is your circle of friends?  Not online friends, but people you’d sit down and visit with at the coffee shop?  Do you tend to have friends that are all more or less like you?

    • Although I have settled down quite a bit this past couple of years...most of my friends are wild and crazy...we like to sit around and joke and have tons of laughs...no holds barr in that department...LOL  Some people watching us may think that we are drunk or on something...but nooo that is just our crazy selves having fun.

    • I must say that I have a great diverse circle of friends. It really has added to my life since they each give me a perspective. I also have learned a long time ago to distance myself from people who are condescending and toxic. Life is too short!

    • I really don’t have too many friends, I have alot of online friends who I chat with to alot but are In far away states, I have co-worker friends, but I don’t hang out with them and have coffee, most of them are younger and go out and party with their group of friends. I really only have my Best friend Gina and use to have my other best friend till he left for Arizona. Those are the two I sit down with and have coffee and conversation with. WOW, I must be pathetic. yeesh!worried

    • Hardly pathetic Fran!  You wouldn’t have 2600+ points racked up on this site if you weren’t a friendly, outgoing, loveable sort of person.  happy  And just because you don’t hang out with your co-worker friends doesn’t mean they‘re not still friends.

      I got to thinking about this whole subject one day last week when I had my coffee break with an ex-con and two hours later sat and had lunch at the diner with one of the wealthiest women in the county.  It sort of made me realize and appreciaate how wide a variety of friends I am lucky enough to have.

    • I have only a few friends but we‘re varied in many things. One friend is very quiet and shy. We go to movies, museums or just sit and enjoy each others’ company. One friend is very lively, full of life. I have friends who think like me and friends who are on the opposite side of the political spectrum. I’m what I would consider to be a faith driven person and have a girlfriend who is atheist.

    • I have lots of different friends, and I keep in touch with all of them. We all have different opinions and views, but we agree to disagree and that is what friendships are all about.

    • I have a very small circle of friends that I may have dinner, a movie, cup of coffee with. Each one is unique in her own way. I love each and everyone of them for all their differences.

    • I have a diverse pile of wild and crazy friends, of all ages, nationalities and professions. And I make friends for life. When you deal with people heart to heart and soul to soul, where you’ve been, what you do and what you look like—doesn’t matter.

    • I was thinking some of the same thoughts as msTerm underneath it all I believe I might have some trust issues as well seeing how my exSIL used to be a good person to confide in until she decided she wanted to be a counselor and she broke the number one rule about confidentiality.

    • I’m thinking thats true also Judy, It’s hard to trust people, I have trusted a few people who ended up backstabbing me and just turning out to be such fakes that I really don’t try too hard to make friends. I don’t just not do It, If someone started talking to me then I wouldn’t turn them away, I guess It’s basically trust Issues and the fact that I am quite shy and quiet too.

    • I dont have a big circle of friends either.  I like it this way.  I can, however, pick up where I left off with friends from the past.  I am having a blast reconnecting with so many of them now!!

      I do have two friends that I know will be my friends for the rest of my life.  Judy and Missy!!!  I just love these wonderful ladies.  It’s so great meeting friends at this age cause you know they will be there forever!

      xoxo

    • I have a very diverse set of friends, many from the various stages of my life, various interest too. Different groups, work enviroments, social settings ect... I love meeting with them to catch up. I only wish that I had more time and money to hang out with them more.

    • I am right with you Judy, although I do have a few friends that I love dearly..trust is such a huge factor and it is difficult to connect with others who have difficulty in keeping things to themselves..and of course, the green-eyed monster does seem to play a role in things even in our 40’s with some people..so with that said, I consider myself, “The Cat Who Walks Alone.“estatic

    • I have a diverse circle of acquaintances and friends.  Many are quite different then me on certain points of views  - my true friends can handle the absolute truth  they want me to tell it like it is- no sugar coating.  I agree with some of the things Termagsea said  backstabbers an  acquaintance  will ask you to be honest, she will thank youthen turn around and tell someone else you are not so nice and should not have been that brutally honest- I will never understand why some women ask for honesty but would rather hear what they want rather then the truth- so my question is WHY ASK in the first place dont they realize  your  time is valuable -listening to them complain over and over about the same thing-caring enough to take time away from another friend that sincerely cares about you  only to be stabbed in the back!
