This is going to be a short post, I almost forgot to post something today for the blog post challenge, but I’ve been running around all day and haven’t had the chance to stop and think… I decided to talk about this after a conversation I had last night with one of my best friends… So I just wanted to post about how you find your true friendships as you grow older… and what I mean when I say this is that the friends that you call today should be those that if you don’t see them everyday or maybe not even every month, you can meet up and fall right back into the last conversation you had. These are the people that will grow old with you because your relationship/friendship is true and not based upon something fake. That doesn’t mean that you can’t make friends as you get older, in fact I think its easier to make true friendships as we get older because you have real common interests vs. just the fact that you go the same school, play on the same sports team, or are in the same sorority, etc… Thanks for listening to me babble on, here are so quotes I love and found on Pinterest!

I love this post! I completely agree that as we get older friendships deepen. And it’s true that those new friendships are built on something more…
I love that second pic – one of my favorites! 🙂
I cherish those select friendships that fall into that category, but as I grow older I’ve found it harder to develop friendships, and here’s what I mean: It seems like I am “friends” with the parents of my kids friends by default and the only basis for the friendship is just that. However, I have found that if I make the effort and reach out to people with common interests and things, true friendships can be formed. Thanks Nicole, love your posts!
Good point! I haven’t had any relationships with any of my son’s friends because my son’s friends are my friends kids 🙂 But I do fear that I won’t like any of the parents or the parents won’t like me when we do get to that stage where we spend almost all our time with our kids after school activities… thanks for the comment!
Hey…I’m glad you stuck around even if we started out just being friends through soccer. Our friendship really deepened once we bonded over how great it was being cute. Some things never change.
Yes, I agree!
