Friendships

Do you feel that you have " real " friends or ones that call only when they need something?  I have both but I am not very enthusiastic about the latter ones.

 I have both. The bad thing is I just can't say no to people. The therapist says I'm a people pleaser because I try to please everyone,

I like my internet friends also. You know you can become close friends without anyone wanting anything from you.

I have acquaintances.

I suspect many (especially at church) who will meet me for a coffee once a year or whatever, to do it out of guilt. I know that may not be true, but it feels that way, given the way they act, we don't have much in common, etc. I do try to be fun and ask them about themselves, bring them coffees in the office, etc.

However, that does mean that they do not hang out with me to get anything. They do it as charity, so they don't expect anything else. I also can't say "no", so it surprises me I'm not surrounded by people like that.

I have real friends but don't see them often enough. Looking forward to seeing one on Thursday :) (Haven't seen her in months).
