Does anyone else feel like the older you get the less friends you really have?
Yes. I think as we get older (and thus wiser) our friend standards change. When we realize what true friendsip is, we also realize that most of our "friends" are merely acquaintences.
Actually I believe the older you become the more (your) definition of what a "real friend" is changes. In hindsight you look back at your youth and you realize that a lot of people you were counting as "friends" were just acquaintances you had something in common with during a particular phase of your life.
You look at some people's Facebook pages and the one's with the highest number of "friends" are usually young. Hopefully they aren't counting all those people as being (actual) friends. When you think about it all you really need is 1-3 (best friends) who are more like siblings you can count on through ups and downs.
Yes. As I've aged, I've realized that certain "friends" weren't really friends after all. I'd really rather have a few good, close, true friends than a bunch of mere acquaintances, drama queens/kings and backstabbers anyhow.
I don't think you have 'less' friends as you get older, you just have a better appreciation of who is a true friend and who is not.
The older you get, the more life experiences you have. Some good and some not so good. Friends are those people who have not only shared the good times with you, but who have also stood by you during the bad.
I also believe that as you get older 'time' becomes more precious. You don't want to waste it on fair weather friends, but spend it with people who truly enrich your life.

Does anyone over the age of 25 follow current fashion trends?Being 19 years old, I can't see the appeal of buying new clothes every season just to be like everyone else. Do older women and men feel the same way?
