Why I have few friends.

I often get maudlin , wishing I could find that special someone. Someone to love, to hold me when I need it and to let me hold them when they need it. To share what time I may have left with. I figure I have lived alone most of my life so I don’t need this to be happy but still there is this longing….

Anyway this got me analyzing why I have few if any real friends.

Why I have few friends.
1. I’m not an aggressive socially . I am friendly will always say hi and ask how you are . I hate small talk and gossip so unless we have some common interest, I won’t pursue a friendship.
2. I’m outspoken and usually say what I feel and often upset people with my lack of filters.
3. I’m well read and educated. I have a very hard time dealing with the kind of people who wrap themselves in flags, scream out about how patriotic they are. Who think everyone should be armed, and how they think other should believe, and organize their lives around what’s on tv.
4. If you’re a racist or a bigot , xenophobic and think the likes of the current or most of the past republican candidates would be good president I don’t want to know you.
5. If I am your friend, understand that I’m happy sitting at home doing the things I do.That I long for my friends or potential friends to invite me to do things or hang out and not be put off because I decline . I need  to be dragged out of the house. I don’t expect it because why would you want a friend like that?
So yes, I understand it’s mostly me and my outlook. I will say if we do become real friends, I’ll be there for you doing whatever I can with the tools I have.

So here is art I did today.

  1. Quality is so much more important than quantity…………..if you leave a persons company and after a conversation with them, you feel parched………….empty………….that that is not a person who is going to stimulate you, challenge you, enhance your very being………….and whose being you will enhance just by being a part of their life…………in whatever part that is……………………I think I have commented on every image you posted today, except the one at the top of the page………………why haven’t I commented on that………….because I don’t want to insult you…………..or have you shake your head and question my sanity in the things I see…………lol………….but it makes me smile…………the image on face book is smaller and I feel I am seeing it more as a whole…………..but what I see takes me back to a much younger more care free time……………..it reminds me of lying on the beach along the coast of main looking at the sea wall………..with the sky above……………..I see the colors in the same shapes of the blocks of granite…………..you brought me back to my summers in the 60’s……………..
