Do you have any friends?

I do.  Not as many as I did say 10 years ago since people grow apart. 

There's only so long you can remain close to someone when they're not part of your day to day life. I have two sisters I haven't spoken to in years. Not for any other reason other than they live on the east coast

Not any more. We got older but I never grew up, they did. 

fixed for me 

 

Also, I just stopped talking to them one day. ASMR came out and I was addicted. I'd rather listen to ASMR than talk to my friends. And no, this isn't anything on my friends. If there was ever and friend who was in the wrong it was prolly gonna be me. It is like that leaking boat thing. Where instead of patching the hole in the boat, I'm removing water with a Bucket. The bucket is ASMR and the ASMR bucket is a lot bigger than the friend bucket.

Is the whole "I play video games therefore I have no friends" thing still a thing in 2021?

I would guess this may have been spurred by this survey that started making the rounds indicating that many US adults don't have people they can trust  for help in their personal lives.

 

 

As for myself, I'm quite lucky in the friends I have. My closest group of friends are people I've known since elementary school, a few from high school, and a couple from college. I'm rather introverted, and I've never been good at making friends, but those friends I do make seem to stick around. My wife is pretty much the same way.

 

I've long wondered what factors most determine keeping friends for the long term, and how much of it is luck. My brothers, both good guys, both much more outgoing than I was, especially in middle school and high school, but neither has ended up with the same kind of close friend groups I have. Did I just happen upon the right people at the right times, or have I been doing something all these years to keep my friends around?
