The last in the series, unless I decide to do another one. I'm funny that way.


Oh, and please do not count spouses or significant others in this poll. Only platonic friends.

Most of my friends are quite a bit younger than I am and have to be reminded how old I actually am. I consider it a good thing, when you start acting old is when you become old.

My best friend was a girl who was 10 years younger than me, she was very mature for her age and I was at the time, quiet immature for mine, we had a lot of fun together.

About ten years after I graduated high school, a girl (woman) from my class started working with my mom, and they became great friends. It kind of freaked me out.

I prefer older people, as friends; although younger people are more fun, generally.

5 years older a few times, but never 5 years younger.

Although if I ever do start dating again, you can be damned sure I'll be meeting plenty of people at least 5 years younger. No old farts for me. ROFL

I have a handful of friends I've met through "traditional" means that are 5+ years older than me.

A majority of folks I've met because of this place is 5+ years older than me. Y'all are just a bunch of old bastards.

As for 5 or more years younger than me... mmm, not so much. I can't think of anyone I hang out with that's that young. 'Bout this time last year I was sleeping with a gal that was 5 years younger than me... but, that's all that comes to mind.

Probably.

Let's see... what's this one? Age?

Lesse... well, I already mentioned that gal last year that was 5 years younger than me. She might be the biggest difference going that direction. I can think of an 18 year old when I was 22... but, that's only four years obviously. Nothing else is coming to mind right away.

Going the other direction there's a few more. First gal I dated in AZ was 6 years older than me. I got a blowjob from some gal that was... 37, I think. I was 23 at the time, IIRC. Hm... there may be more. I'm just not very good at remembering ages I guess. I don't think there's many five years away from me. I tend to hook up with a lot of gals that are 1, 2, or 3 years older than me. Then, a lot of times I just never get around to asking their age... just assume it's roughly in the same neighborhood as mine. That's kinda what happened with that gal that was five years younger than me... I knew she was younger, but I didn't realize she was only twenty. Found out when she got busted w/ her fake ID at my favorite local bar (where I met her, btw).

There are five people who I will refer to as "my best friend," all of whom have, through both words and deeds, moved to a point where their friendship and loyalty are beyond question. It's nearly impossible to rank them against each other, so I don't bother. I've known all of them for at least 14 years, and since I've never had much in the way of close family, I tend to regard them as family. I keep in regular contact with all of them and tend to see all of them at least once a year, even though they're spread from Tucson to Staten Island.

Beyond that, I have several close friends, ranging from junior high to people I've met through this board. I've known most of them for at least 10 years.

I was never close to my family, really, until the last year or so. I talk to my parents every couple of weeks now, and one of my sisters once every 4-6 weeks. But I've never had a single friend that I felt close enough to stay in touch with. I guess that's a problem I have, people have always been pretty disposable for me.

My mom was completely insane and died when I was a kid. My dad's a total prick, and I haven't seen or spoken to him in over 10 years. I have a spoiled bitch of a half-sister who doesn't give a shit if I live or die (she's the child my dad had with the CORRECT wife after he left my mom). Over the years, I've gotten close to other family members, but that wasn't always the case. I needed friends.

I needed friends.I think that's probably it. I've never felt like I needed anyone, with the possible exception of my ex-wife who I leaned on like a crutch when I was in that...dark place after I left college. Once I started getting better, she was disposable, too, just like everybody else I've ever known. I feel guilty sometimes that I have the capacity to treat people like that. Occasionally someone I work with or talk with online will ask why or how I don't have friends, and my response is generally that I just don't know how to be one. I've tried to work on it with my family since the divorce, but it's not easy.

Do you consider any of the people on the BB to be your friends?

Well I like to think I've only had friends over to the gameroom,so (although not close) maybe I made the list somewhere. :D

We aren't disposable. You always come back. I know it isn't because the Chiefs kick ass.

Without a doubt. Think about it - you've probably interacted more with people on the board than anyone else in your life (at least since your ex-bitch left). And we've known many of the people on here (at least through the screen) for six or seven years. That's a long time.

Now I feel kind of bad about covering up the fact that I'm really a 62 year-old grandmother in Bangor, Maine, who drives a tan Accord. Can I fix someone a lobster to make up for it?

One of my really good friends is a 66 year old woman. She's like a substitute grandmother. I used to work with her at the grocery store in my college days. I would watch her house for her when she would go on trips, and take care of her lawn and cat. She's since moved back to New Jersey.
