How do you maintain friendships?

20 May 2018 - 11:32 AM

This is probably one of those threads where I feel like I'm sharing too much, but meh whatever.  Maybe some of you will identify as being in the same kind of boat :bench:



Growing up I always though of myself as an extrovert, but any more find myself leaning towards doing things in isolation and in the absence of others.  Granted, things are busy as sh!t so down town isn't very frequent and I probably do enjoy closing out the outside world.  My job is very social, so I'm constantly with people who I consider friends and mingling and having small talk and collaborating with all walks of life.


Where I find myself lacking is engaging in genuine relationships where I can openly share about things which bother me with people I consider close friends.  Most of who I consider my close friends are guys I hung out with in high school.  Now we don't see each other much and I don't talk to most of them real often.  At work I'm at the top of the food chain, so it's hard to build close friendships when everyone sees you as the boss.  So it's really tending to kids activities and occasionally socializing with folks, but I feel I am lacking in finding guys I consider true, close friends that I converse with on a regular basis.


Real long way around the question I was getting to.  Have any of you found ways to connect to new friendships (perhaps moved to new communities, wanting to branch out more...) and found that you were successful in doing so?


Would be interested in getting some ideas.  TIA and PIIHB
