I have always had good friends. Not too many, a few, but they are the best of friends. In my early teens, I had a tough time making friends. Everyone seemed so different from me. Not many shared my hobbies and interests(I indulged in excessive reading, was a loner etc) and I have but a couple of them to call friends from school! As I grew into my late teens, it was a breeze to make friends. Few of my best friends for life have been from my late teens/college. As I grew older, (hopefully wiser) and entered the cut throat corporate environment, I realised there was no one to call friend for a long time. My roomies were my only friends and others were friends when it was comfortable. But even then, I did make a few good ones. It is the late twenties that I find most difficult to handle so far. In the last 5 years that I moved to my present city, I have hardly made any new friends. I mean, I have acquaintances, but no ‘friends’! Does that shock you? I have tried hanging out with different kinds of people, but haven’t found that comfort level with anyone yet. So are the late twenties worse than teens in terms of a social life?
