The purpose of friendship is to be together:)

Exactly. Friends are there for each other. And there is a difference between telling someone a truth they may need to hear but don't want to..and just kicking someone when down and walking away.."for their own good"..

Friends don't get "tired" of each other, they don't get tired of being there for each other.

or is that love?

I always get the two mixed up.

Hugs

I have never had a need or desire for many friends. Honestly, I find myself to be my best friend. I'm always able to keep myself entertained and occupied with my interests and hobbies. Frankly, I really have little time for friends. Sure, I have that circle of lifelong friends that I hook up with maybe once or twice a year, but nobody that comes over anf I see frequently. I really don't have much time for that. I'm 61, retired, and keep myself busy pretty with things. I have an RV and take frequent trips too. I'm into electronics and computers and drones and always have a few ongoing projects on my workbenches. Living alone, I have to do most of my own cleaning and shopping, and that takes time too. I do take trips to hook up with some friends. Three of us are going south for a month soon, but we won't spend that entire time hanging out together. I intend to go sit in the desert for a couple weeks .. alone .. kind of, I'll bring my cat (they are less needy than a human friend).

I'm much more relaxed and myself when I'm just left alone. I really do have enough interests and hobbies, like photography too, that can consume me and take most of my time. I don't even sleep much because there's still so many things I want to do before I eventually die. If someone doesn't share a few of my interests, they don't really stand much of a chance of getting to know me. There has to be some common interest or obsession there or you have nothing and no reason to be friends. I.E. I hate spectator sports, what a damn ridiculous waste of time, and unhealthy too .. sitting on your ass watching others do stuff. And fishing is SO BORING .. lol, man vs. fish, ha, don't get me started on that. We wouldn't stand a chance of becoming friends if those were your interests. I'd likely have insulted you a dozen times within the first 12 minutes of meeting. chuckle

Friends are okay until they start to distract and deter and interrupt me from my obsessions and fun. When they start to become an interference or a bummer for me, that's when I have to push away. And they always eventually do.

LOL, a friend is someone that wants you to be their best man at their wedding and then 12 years later ask if they can live in your garage and borrow your car because their wife is divorcing them, lol. No thanks.

My few friends are pretty much like me. We occasionally get together and always keep in touch, but we stay out of each other's daily lives and we don't burden others with ours.
Someone that doesn't NEED a friend is usually the best kind of friend.
It's the ones and NEED a friend that turn me off. I stopped dating because it started to become apparent to me most of them were facing a dilemma: get a waitress job or marry someone that can take care of me. LOL, no thanks.

On this planet of almost 8 billions, I'd be surprised if I would be a compatible friend with even a dozen of you out there.

You are right about that.

human company. Company that doesn't judge or condemn or criticize or want you to improve or have to be anyone other than who you are. Someone who accept you for who you are. Someone who knows all about you, someone you can unburden youself to, and spill your guts to, and won't treat you like a stranger afterwards but still wants to be your friend.

loyalty. trust. companionship. camarderie.

yeah, I know what real friendship is because I guess in one life or another I've had it. But a lot of people I know today are only friends until they have some weakness or perceived weakness about you that they either exploit or simply walk away from. The whole 'what can you do for me' thing is not friendship.



oh please...we're all judgemental hypocrites. the recluses can't go out for that very reason. they know everyone else are judgemental hypocrites like them but also won't admit it.





shockedd shockedd shockedd shockedd

Just because someone is afraid because they have been judged far too harshly by others in the past and felt the hurt from that and it makes them reluctant to leave themselves open to further abuse does not make them a narcissist.

It makes the one judging THEM for it sadists, though.

Friends are handlers in satan's kingdom. Keep you roped into the hive when you're not a part of it.

Actually not far from the truth regarding wives and family...

This place would be (more) depressing if this were all there was. I mean using children and animals to host demons is a low blow even for the father of lies. "Reptilian" babies? I'd ask for advisement but I know it would be: you're not supposed to know everything.

If that is your view of friendship, then you are a sad little person indeed. I may be depressed, but am not that sad.

actually , Matt Ridley, auuthor of the red queen, winner of the Rhone Poulenc prize for science books, wrote a follow up book titled "the origins of virtue, human instincts and the evolution of cooperation" in the book he describes the evlution of humans working together and he role of freindships, what they are, what they mean to us and the sad trth is that when you peel back all the layers of niciteys, and look at it from an evolutionary standpoint, you see that cooperation developed by it being advantageous to bee a nice person, to develop friendships and to be a likeable person as in reality prior to social programs, your friends and family were the social programs...or in essence the development of "you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours, you help me now, I'll be there to help you later" these "favors in the bank" are the main driving force behind the evolution of friendships and human cooperation.

So I would also say that I am a freind to others so that they may exploit me when needed, and I don't mind, and neither do they. It is an unspoken psychological reality that helped coin the phrase "a friend in need is a pain in the ass" of course somewhat jokingly, implying freindly sarcasm

“You will meet a lot of people in your life; some laugh with you, others will laugh at you; some will love to clean your mess, others will love to mess you up! Love all, but choose carefully the one who stays close to you forever!”

“There are only two kinds of people who can drain your energy: those you love, and those you fear. In both instances it is you who let them in. They did not force their way into your aura, or pry their way into your reality experience.”

“Friendship is like an investment; the best type yields the best profit for you! It's not just about making friends; it's about making right friends for the right reasons!”

I had a friend in middle school.

And that's it.

Since I grew up I've had a lot of fans, but no friends.

Except my wife of course. She is a true friend.

I thought you were gay, lol.

I get that a lot (online, not IRL).
