SJW friend once said “I don’t want to talk about this, but I can’t support Kylie Jenner because her politics.” Genuinely confused, I asked to what politics she referred, and she said “Didn’t I just say I don’t want to talk about it?”

That was pretty much where I lost interest in even trying to maintain a shallow friendship with her.


I wish it was easier to make friends in adulthood.

Tell me about it.


I don't think I have a single close friend within 300 miles that shares even 60 percent of my interests. Should be more interested in what they like?

Faking interest doesn’t seem like a good way to build a friendship.

At this point, I don’t even need it to be about shared interests; I just want someone I can talk to. Someone who I can lock into a rhythm of conversation and understanding with. But that seems maybe even more difficult to find than someone with similar interests.

I would tend to agree with your last point here, LV.

I've been lucky enough to make some great friends in adulthood. Moving to NYC and finding a bar full of Chiefs fans, people who have similar values/politics as me and are also from where I grew up was super lucky. But even that group, with all of our similar interests, has difficulty really getting deep into conversations and ideas. They are great people, and I love them, but they don't always want to dig in the way I do.

We've had those conversations but not as frequently as I'd prefer.

My problem exactly. I really don't need too many friends in my life, and I don't even need to see the ones I do have very often. But when connecting with people, I'd prefer to talk about something interesting in depth and detail. If we're just gonna make small talk about the weather or whatever, I'd much prefer to be at home by myself doing something more interesting.

I have two best friends I feel equally close to, but it’s kind of funny how different our relationships are. One is optimistic, positive, and full of life, and the other is deeply cynical, depressed, and defeated. The former is someone I feel has made me a much better, more thoughtful person, and we are very, very in sync with our tastes and interests. I love knowing him and talking to him. We tell each other we love each other all the time. The latter is someone who has pretty different tastes than mine (though we share plenty of interests), and I think our roles to each other are more actively supportive, since we both hate ourselves and want to die.

Meeting new people is totally different though, you're sort of feeling each other out. Felt great to me -- no one was monopolizing the conversation, ideas seemed to ebb and flow comfortably. Good mix of serious talk and novel chitchat about Pearl Jam, skiing, etc.

If I were ranking it, I'd go:

1. Meeting strat in real life
2. Not having met strat in real life

In all things, balance. I guess.

People always talk about how hard it gets to make friends when you're past your mid 20s, but I don't have a problem with that just yet. I really like connecting with new people, and I met some of my current closest friends over the last couple years (in fact, the two people I hang out with the most in a non-romantic way, I met at the same party just over a year ago). Although maybe I am subconsciously sabotaging my friendships by serving subpar lasagna.

What I do struggle with is maintaining friendships with people I love dearly but who live far away, or whose work schedule doesn't align with mine. Save for a couple notable exceptions, I am bad at constant, sustained contact if I don't actually see you on a regular basis, which sometimes comes off as aloofness or not caring about the person.
