Well I’ve nearly failed on the BlogPals19 challenge on day two, because I’m not writing what I had planned for the day and it’s late.
So what do I mean by ‘Transient Friendship’?
Well I guess it’s the sort of person I am, I have never made long lasting friendships and quite frankly do not have deep enough friendships that stand the test of time. I’ve periodically thought about why I am this way especially when I see other people enjoying the company of close friends.
So this afternoon, we had a surprise visit from my old college friend, Jools. We were close drinking buddies, skinned our knuckles keeping our old bangers on the road and went on holiday together. He was the best man at my wedding. The last the we saw each other was back in 2008. Over ten years ago but the effort has been largely made by him to keep in touch. Needless to say we caught up quickly about our lives to date, ate a meal and then talked a little about old times with Jools reminding me of many things I had forgotten.
It’s not that I don’t want to have separation but I don’t feel the need to keep a friendship going. I am actually happy to talk to strangers, learn a bit and leave at that. As a result I have literally no friends I see regularly.
The question is am alone in this? Comments below, please!
