I don't want to imply that you should only be friends with people your own age, or anything like that. 'S ridiculous. (IMHO, of course.) I just wanted some opinions on something.
Now, I'm not social. I don't have many 'friends'. However, there is a woman in my karate/muay thai classes with whom I have a lot in common, and great affection for. I've known her for almost two years now, and lately we've been doing lots of stuff together (mostly training related).
She asked me to go running with her yesterday, and I said sure, so we went running. While we were talking, she said a little about her friendships, and mentioned that *I* was the one person she talked to most in the whole town, including her husband whom she actually *lives* with. Taking into account the amount of real talking I do, I could say the same for her.
It occurred to me later that it's a little unusual for us to be friends, but my only reason for that is that she's 10 years older than me (at 26). I wouldn't know if real friendships between teens and adults are common, so thought I'd ask my peeps* at VB
. So, what y'all think?
*Disclaimer: I am in no way implying that the "peeps" at VB
are my possessions in any way, shape or form.
