When I think about friends I think that it is great to have a good mix of them. I just want friends in general. I have a few great friends. Their relationship statuses really don’t matter to me. A friend is a friend. As long as we get along and have some things in common I am great. I truly love my friends. The friends I have now helo me in different aren’t areas of my life when necessary. I have a friend who will help me business wise and listen to me complain. We can also have fun together. I also have that friend who I can just pick up the phone and have fun with. We don’t talk often but when we do we just click. I appreciate those friendships. Another thing that these two friends have in common is we are mothers. I also have friend who is like family. She is married and has a family. We have been through similar situations and even worked together. However I miss hanging out with her. But sometimes I wish that I had more friends that are married or in relationships. I think that I have some really valid reasons as to why. Here they are:
- Relatable- I think that having a friend who is married can relate to things like wanting to be home with your significant other or just some of the issues that come up.
- Marriage advice- Sometimes you can get some great advice from another married friend. Maybe they can handle a situation different than you did. Whether they have been married longer or in less than time than you are you can always learn something.
- Someone to hangout with- I think it would be great just to have someone to hangout with. Maybe their spouse and my husband can become friends.
I just think that it would be cool to have friends who are in a similar situation as me. Now I have family who give me great advice. I also have friends who aren’t married who give wonderful advice as well. I just wonder what type of advice and connection I could make if had friends like that in my circle.
