Dante’s Opinion: Is it bad that I like my old high school buddies more than my current friends?
The first post of Dante’s Opinion here at Dante’s Blog Network. I answer questions that people post on sites like Yahoo! Answers with my opinion. Here’s our first question:
Is it bad that I like my old high school buddies more than my current friends? I tend to be more in my comfort zone whenever I’m around old high school buddies (I graduated from high school in 1999) and often wish I could have close friendships with them instead of the friends I have today, there are times I tend to feel sad that none of my old high school buddies wanna continue where we’ve left off from high school but I still wish them the best.
I seem more reserved and shy whenever I’m around my current friends cause I tend to care how I act towards them more than I do being around old high school buddies and the majority of my current friends are people who I’ve met through my brother and I’m usually with my friends when I’m with my brother, when my brother is around I tend to care too much towards how I act towards them cause I worry that I might embarrass my brother with the way I act towards people
I have a learning disability and I seem to have a hard time making new friends cause of my learning disability and me growing too attached to people quickly and easily, whenever I see photos of my old high school buddies on Facebook still hanging out together I tend to feel sad cause I often wish I could be in their shoe
No, I don’t think there’s a problem that you would like your high school buddies more than your current buddied. Part of it could be that, for many, high school is a big time in people’s lives. These are the twilight years of the youth. Another side, which is similar, is that perhaps you had such a good time in high school that you associate everything positive in your life with that time.
On the flip side, it could be that you are struggling with letting go of the past. People are rarely the same person that they were 10+ years after high school. And maybe that’s why “none of my old high school buddies wanna continue where we’ve left off from high school” Perhaps they outgrew you?
I don’t know for sure what a learning disability has to do with the situation.
I hope your friends don’t know that you prefer the good old times with the other folks.
Is it rude to go to a restaurant, cinema, or museum, alone?
