Quoting samsara2

I find my age-group to be particularly wary of each other. I find my own sex especially guilty of this. (not excluding myself)

I couldn't agree more. I think it's a "woman" thing - to automatically see other women as potential threats. No matter how silly or hurtful it sounds, it's like we're wired to be wary.

Quoting samsara2

I have lots of people whom I would call pals, mates, acquaintances (whatever term you prefer), but I can honestly count on one hand the number of true friends in my life. And, this is something that I feel is a good thing.

I have a lot of friends from places I used to work, friends-of-friends, etc. - but only a handful whom I really, really enjoy spending time with. These are people I went to school with (2 I've known since Kindergarten) and so we know the good, the bad and the ugly about one another. I would choose a night at home with them over an all-night out with a bunch of friendly acquaintances any day.

That reminds me - I always feel a bit bad when I start losing touch with people when I switch jobs. They are the greatest of friends when we work together, then you change jobs and see less and less of them and then a year later you're going for the occassional drink and I'm stumped as to what I'm going to talk about for four hours. Like we've lost our common denominator.

Maybe that's just me.

This is an impecable question for me right now. I am in the process of cleaning up my "friendship drawer". I have a couple of toxic friendships that have taken me some time to clean up. It is hard for it is a must thing to do.
I love to be surrounded by positive, up beat, go-getting, adventurous and easy going type of people. Along the way I have picked up the exact opposite but it is never too late to start over.

That is a very smart thing to do! Constantly negitive people will literally suck the life out of you. I mean we all have our moments/days...but the ones who never have a good thing to say..etc...those are the ones to avoid.

Absolutely! But most of all, people sometimes dont realize how great their life is and waste it away complaining about the most insignificant things. Those are the ones I wish I had taken to Cambodia with me...
