This number has been increasing for quite some time, and it is finally getting the attention it deserves. I am not a statistic. I am a person who is happy to report that my friends are getting older and a good deal more intelligent than my parents. (And I am not a statistic.
A friend of mine recently told me a story of a woman who had just turned 40. She told me that she was getting married and her husband was not exactly thrilled about it. He said, “I just want to know that you are OK with this.” I said, “Well, I’m not sure if I am, but I am not going to complain about it. I’m just going to live a little bit longer.
This is exactly why I love this story. It hits on something I love, that age-related anxiety, but also provides an explanation for why we act the way we do. We don’t actually want to be in this age, but we have been conditioned to do it. I also really love that a lot of our anxiety is rooted in the fact that we don’t know ourselves and that we don’t have a good way to know ourselves.
For a long time, I felt like I had a good handle on my age. I knew that I was old, and I knew I was old enough to be in my 40s. I had a good handle on all of this because I had a lot of family around me.
We all feel this way about our age, but we don’t always know why. For some, their age is a sign of what they want to do with their life. For others, it’s an anxiety about something they don’t want to do. For me, when I started this blog, I wanted to be younger, but I always felt like I would be old.
This age is not a sign of what you want to do with your life, but it is an indication of how old you are. A friend of mine mentioned to me that his age is how long he keeps his underwear on the right side of his body. I told him that I had a lot of brothers, and the right side of my underwear was the side that had my brothers’ underwear on.
I think this is what makes the idea of having friends so interesting. For many, being friends is about being in a relationship. I like to think of this as a kind of “social glue” that ties us together. For some people, having a friend means being a friend to them. For others, it means having a friend for a friend. For still others, it means having a friend in order to have a friend.
The thing is that the definition of friendship, and what gives it its meaning, are both very subjective. Some people may consider having a friend as being the same as having a best friend. Others may view it as a second or even third best friend. I’m not necessarily into this idea, but I do find it fascinating. To me, it’s all about finding a way to combine the two ideas together.
As we are all about to discover when we’re done, friendship is something that’s subjective, not something that’s easily quantifiable. As with anything, the definition of, for instance, friendship is also subjective. And the idea that having a friend for a friend, rather than to have a friend, to have a best friend, etc. is a subjective idea is something I find fascinating.
Having two friends is a subjective idea, which is why I love the concept of friends rating age. I think the idea of having a friend that is older than you, or one that is younger than you, would just be so much more interesting than having two friends of the same age. How do we create a friend that is older than us? Well one of the best ways would be by the friend being able to read our minds.
