I feel the same way, Dara. I call people to arrange events. They come sometimes, but never reciprocate. The people who care for others are usually taken for granted themselves.

Someone told me one time: "There is no such thing as friends any more, just activity partners." It is so sad.

Have you ever heard that Beatles song, 'Eleanor Rigby?' I think Eleanor was kind of like us. Another sad thought, sorry!

Oh well, you can count me as your friend, even if only as a pen pal.

From experience, I think one can make real good friends anytime, in one's lifetime. It just needs an openness and a connection. Usually, we are more like that as children and tend to make lasting friendships then, but there is nothing but ourselves that rules it out later in life. Older people, who have been through rich experiences and gained wisdom also make very good friends. In our middle age, they will make us feel younger, but will treat you like a peer. Just look for the good or moments that are 'gems' in your interactions with people and you will start to make the 'best' friends with all kinds of people, even those that others consider nasty.

i don't know. maybe you should learn to identify who is your real friend. Here are some clues. Your talks are not about foods, games, but about dreams, projects you are doing. Meanwhile, you should find something in your life you'd like to pursue with your full strength, so that you won't feel lonely or hoping them to call you all day. At least, no call won't bother you that much.
