      I think at work, you just get comfortable with seeing certain people each day, when that situation is removed, you then have to decide whether to actually mae the effort.

    This post touches on a very important subject. I feel like it’s often hard to tell who’s truly a friend and who only seems like one because you spend a lot of time together in the same environment, e.g. school or work. It’s also natural that with time, you and your friend might drift apart and will no longer be able to relate to each other. I, like most people, can never bring myself to end friendships though because it just seems so final.

      It is difficult to make something final, and that is probably why a lot of people let friendships drift naturally. Even when I can no longer relate to certain people, it’s always tough to let a friend go.

    This is such a great post! One of my recent faves! I feel like I sometimes struggle what to define my “blogger friends”? I know my tried and true friends in real life, and who I would consider my acquaintance. Online, it’s a little different, I would consider you my blogger friend. You’re more than an acquaintance, but we’re not the closest of friends either ? We message online, and also through whatsapp occasionally. If I’m ever in London, I would hit you up to meet up with you. so it’s tough! I have a few “blogger friends”, that I would go so far to say that we’re more on the friends side than aquaintances! You got me a lot to think about, great post 🙂 xx

      Thank you for reading. It is difficult to define how people fit in each category. If I had more time, I would love to make more acquaintances friends.
      I think online will always be a little different until you have face-to-face contact, because then you know for definite how someone speaks and how they put words across. I’m always wondering if I sound too blunt online. If I was in NY, I’d want to meet up as well 🙂 xx

      Thank you Debbie. That’s happened to me a lot as well. One moment I feel really close to someone, and the next I can barely remember when we last spoke. One of the sad things about friendship.

I would love to read your thoughts!
