I wonder what my current friendships have to say about me?
Hmm... Well, first let's break them down into two main categories shall we.
- Offline or the physical world
- Online friends
My buddy GT lives in Toronto as does the Wiccan, and well my friend in Edmonton lives in Edmonton. That is a 27 hour Greyhound bus ride if I ever want to see them, so that just doesn't happen. It's been 3 years since I got to see any of them.
My friend the Nurse lives in town, but she works shift work and we only get to see each other twice a year once in the summer and once at the holidays.
Darius spends all this time with his band and whomever his latest girlfriend is so I rarely see him.
Not much friend time.
Now, both the Nurse and my friend in Edmonton (I am not even sure if I've mentioned her on here before or not, and I'm just too lazy to look through the blog) they are my oldest friends. Known them for 30 years (Nurse) and 25 years (Edmonton) both have been married for over a decade. The Nurse = 16 years married. Edmonton = 12 years married. Both have 3 kids, ironically both had 2 girls and 1 boy. Ironically both had twins.
SDG is married with 4 kids, Mel is single but crazy about this one chick who he does not have the guts to tell, BP is married and Joshua is single.
SDG, BP and Joshua are very skeptical with everything and very negative. Lately, I just don't want anything to do with them. They are people I have only ever known on the internet.
So what has brought this up today ? Couple of things. One, was an article I read on Yahoo.ca that talked about how men react to your friends, and today's Book Club meeting. I blogged about that over on the new blog here
I got more then excited about the idea of maybe meeting a new friend.
She seems very professional in everything she does, and the fact she has a masters degree in English Lit, as well as working on her Law degree made me feel, well like a slug. But, the more we talked, the more we found we have in common.
