How Old Are Your Friends???
For me it’s for sure older….. I have a handful of friends that are my peers and I’ve been friends with them since school (elementary, junior high and high school). I suppose you could say I have one younger friend – that is if you count my baby sister – even then she’s less than a year younger than me so I suppose she would be more in the peer category.
Other than that every other single person I consider a friend is older than me – without exception…..
Ohhhh – back that train up – Hubby and I have a “couple friendship” the wife is younger than me – and I did not meet them in high school, so yes there is one exception…..
A handful are only a few years older – many are in their mid forties and a couple are in their fifties….
I wonder why this is??? I am not against being friends with my peers or folks younger than me. In fact age has nothing to do with why I choose a friend – in fact there is no rhyme or reason to why my friends are my friends….. If there is a connection, there is a connection – period…..
I guess my life illustrates that I connect with folks older than me…
So – How old are your friends???? Why do you think you are attracted to who you are attracted to???
