The problem may be that you miss the idea of friendship that
you had when you were younger.
The friendships we have as kids is a one-off wonderous thing,
our goals are simple and our wants tend, due to peer-pressure,
to be mutual.
As an adult, we learn to distrust as our only goal... (whether we're
aware of it or not)... is to set up the next generation of yourself.
I know many here will disagree with me, but that's what adulthood
in all other species is about.
So our school-yard chums become people to watch, and the
same goes for their view of you. You trust them, they're still the
guys who you goofed off with down at the river or over near the
bleachers, but they say things about your girl... they don't seem to
understand your fondness for her.
So out you set alone.
Further down the road, when you've ditched her and the idea of a
couple of beers with the guys sounds fun, you ring around.
But those guys have gone, starting families and holding down dead
end jobs... where did all those sunny happy days go?
We walk alone, it's a grown-up thing, I suppose.
