Yup, I know. Some of us are just in our Grade 7 while some of us are in our junior years in college. So, this article should not be our concern for now, right? Well, you’re wrong because this article that supposedly applies to peeps in their 20s, late 20s or even those in their 30s could very well teach us a thing or two about friendship and why we might lose some friends along the way. We compiled these top 5 top reasons on why you might lose some friends.
#5 You have different schedules.
Being in high school is so much fun because you and your friends got to do things together: eating lunch, recess, homerooms, malling and many other fun activities. But when you’re in college, it’ll be totally different: you’ll go to different colleges or universities, take up different courses and have different time schedules. In short, it’ll be difficult to keep in touch save for some weekends together, which eventually will not last.
#4 You have different priorities.
Admit it, you and your friends do have different interests wherein some may join the drama club, others the pep squad while others the computer or math club. So, if your friend kept talking about the plays that she went to, while another friend kept talking about the great mathematical mystery that was left unsolved for some centuries, while you and your other friends want to talk about basketball and girls, then dude, you’ll lose interest in what your friends are telling you. In the long run, you’ll lose interest to hang out with them.
#3 You’re the third wheel
Yeah, you’re a pretty swell guy that every girl wants to date. Nah! I’m just kidding. But dude, having a relationship is fun, but you’ll eventually lose time being with your friends. Although the situation may be different for a girls and boys, but having your time and your eyes all focused to your special friend leaves no time to nurture your relationship with your buddies.
#2 Distance makes the friendship grow cold
The adage “Distance makes the heart grow fonder” is not at all true. Some friends will move to another place like moving to another country and this means that they will meet new people and you will too. So, it is up to you if you will keep a long distance friendship or simply move on and look for your new best pals.
#1 People do change.
The reasons why people change may be endless. Perhaps he found a new circle of friends who understand him or her better, or perhaps you had a fight with your friend and both of you failed to settle it before your years in high school or college ends.
