    The people you describe sound more like Acquaintances rather than friends. Except for the ridicule part, that's what friends are for.

    Friends are for those too weak to stand alone.

    Your friends (or lack thereof) are overrated. Not everyone else's.

    was with a girl once and she had to stop to buy souvenirs for her friends. i said fine. she comes back with 35 souvenirs. i ask, what the fuck. she goes, oh i bought one for each of my friends. 35 friends? who has 35 friends? stopped dating after awhile because she would always drag me to meet with people EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK. "friendship" was a full time job. the most insane person i have ever dated which, according to the rules of society, was a WINNER, she HAD FRIENDS!!!!

    You two need to duke this out in a "Who is a better poster?" poll in the OT. Loser wears an AV of shame for 30 days.

    Do we have a deal, gentlemen? @Horse Style

    Do you get a commission for every poster you make an OT regular or something? Why would I care to "duke it out" with some whiny random I didn't know existed until today?

    It's very possible to have good friends. You should take a look in the mirror first; are you a good friend? If yes, then it's time you ditch those pricks

    Nah. Friends are awesome. In our group of friends (5 total) we always support each other.

    You need to find better friends.

    I Had nerd group of Magic the Gathering friends, then long term girlfriend with video game good friends, then, ALCOHOL. Then no gf because alcohol, and some friends I jammed in a death metal band with, then no bandmates cuz alcohol, then some friends I ordered UFC events with, then me drunk fucked that up too.

    I had to get used to not having friends, and when I stopped drinking I learned my social skills are pathetic and I think about myself too often in front of other people in sobriety. Going places myself or not going places because I would be by myself.

    Are friends overrated? No. But if you attempt to cut off any meaningful connection to other persons beware turning into a self pity, poor me lonely fuckhead. I am very happy in solitude, enjoy my job and my life.

    Good friend aren't. Also depends on you being a good judge of character -if you aren't, odds are you'll surround yourself with idiots. Odds are good you'll be an idiot too.

    You just need to find the right friend to hang with. It sounds like Jack Daniels has been a very loyal friend to you this whole time. Don't be a prick and turn your back on him now

    I only keep a small circle of friends that ive known my whole life. So theyre basically brothers.

    But I value privacy and trust. I cant be close with someone if I know my business and their business are out in the open for everyone to see. Keeps me in control... and I like that.
