Friends :/

Is it really good to have friends. As all my past friends seem to just want to stop being friends with me. I'm not sure why I don't think I do anything wrong. It's just so hard to find people to be friends with and make it last and that won't get bored. Does anyone else have this problem

I think it can be difficult to make and keep friends.

Sometimes it's not about us though, people have busy lives and can't commit to the friendship and put the time and energy into it.

Some people need to have loads of friends, others aren't bothered by it.

Thankyou ,
I guess your right it does take time and effort to interact with people full stop. I just wondered as most people I've became friends with have only lasted longest of a year and then they tend to slowly disappear.

There's a tricky balance to maintaining long friendship.
How much time to invest and how much to expect.
How are you in friendships? Are you needy or distant? What are you expecting from friendships?

I don't think I'm needy at all. I keep my distance but not too much just so I don't smother them cause I wouldn't like to be like that so I'm not sure
