I met some people and we had a shared hobby, so we started meeting on a regular basis to share information and enjoy our common interest. As a group we made decisions about what we would do and not do, when we would meet, how often, etc. However, over time, the group changed and there was no longer a single focus; it became much more of a social event than a study group.
Have you broken up with a best friend?
I’ve recently called it quits with a very long-term friend, 28 years to be exact (I’m 40). I realized I was in a passive-aggressive relationship for years and found myself completely fed up.
It’s been one-and-a-half years since my good friend and I broke up. As background, I’m 39 and she’s 45. I’m single and she’s divorced. Neither of us have kids. We had been good friends for seven years…met at work. We still have the same workplace and have the same group of lunch buddies. We don’t work closely together but we do see each other at lunch and in the hallway.
