Survey Says People Lost 90% Of Their Friends In The Past Decade
It's not all bad! I promise!
This makes sense, moving, growing, etc. Friends come and go, it's crazy how high the number is though.
Two-thirds of people who took a survey, reported on by Bustle, say they've lost 90% of their friends over the last 10 years.
Think back to 10 years ago, that was January 2006, are they still your friends?
As I was doing some thinking, YES! There's a small group of members from my old radio show who still get together. We were good friends then, and still keep in touch and meet up when we're all in town. We're not as heavily involved in each other's lives, but we're not totally in the dark either.
Some of the reasons people say they've drifted away from their friends are moving to a new city, growth, relationships, fighting, and losing them after a breakup.
I'm pretty proud that we've been able to keep these friendships going. My friends all live in my hometown in Ohio, and I've lived in three cities (one on the other side of the country), yet we still remain connected. Social media to the rescue!
