    Just wondered how much effort others make with friends over the years.

    At college I always used to be out with a few small friends and then we'd all meet in big groups either at a pub, house party. So you had your smaller group, then the larger group.

    Obviously don't expect that ten years later and I still regularly see some people. What I'd call life friends.

    Same as jobs, you move onto another place and socialise with the new crowd.

    Some people I try and keep in contact with, or they message you once in a blue moon and you talk about meeting up and it never happens.

    Do you generally just accept that we all move on and mingle more with new friends at new jobs, hobbies etc?

    Or do you you make so much effort and if they give a token effort you don't bother?

    I've discussed this with other people and they just accept that you drift apart from a lot of people.

    I guess I'm in deep thought mode and it's kind of sad, but appears to be the way of friendship.

    I do appreciate what I have. My girlfriend is my soul mate. Never felt like that before.

    Plus the friends that I do have close have always been there for me and vice versa etc.

    I don't do Facebook as it seems to just be a competition of who's up to what, who has the most friends etc. Everyone I know is on there though. lol

    I don't know what got me thinking about it. Must be Christmas.

    I have one best mate. I left school at 16 made new friends at factory before joining the Army at 19. Three years later I left and moved to the Highlands.

    I only keep in touch with one person from the Factory and some Schoolmates through Facebook. No one from the Army (The squadron I was in lived for booze and fights mainly).
    So I only really made friends once I settled up here.
    Besides my best mate there are only a few folk that I would class as proper friends.

    I do sometimes think about getting in touch with other folk from the past but they don't seem to make the effort to get in touch either. Maybe it's just a lazy bloke thing.

    The wife on the other hand is still in close contact with her old school friends and several work colleagues from her previous two posts. She does have every evening to herself to socialise though. Me, I work nights all the time but I've discovered AVForums:thumbsup:

    I think that was discussed before and most people liked their privacy. I think a meet could be cool. The missis would call me a geek.

    If there was a shoe convention though....
