Yearly friend remit


#1

made/lost any friends in the past year?

made:

  • two people from my last job who I’m now mega close with. going out to Denmark to visit one of them in May actually!
  • through video games I’ve got a lot closer with someone I’d been friends with for like 5 years which is nice
  • one of my ATDs got married and her husband is sick. funny fact - he’s the guy who did the vocals for the We Are Your Friends remix. how about that?

lost:

  • old school friend that moved in last year. turned out she was massively manipulative and just an all round weirdo. fell out with her towards the end of 2015 and she moved out in April last year.
  • some guy at my old work that I used to sometimes hang out with, but found him increasingly irritating. just stopped responding to his texts/invites to stuff in the end. feel a bit bad about it, but he was a bit of an arsehole anyway.

NET SPEND INNIT!


#2

I made friends with a penoid couple, then they immediately moved to Scotland. Harsh.


#3

through the ol’ cards?


#4

Didn’t gain any friends, didn’t lose any friends. Just how I like to keep it.


#5

Yeah. Different set of cards to the usual ones though. Variety is the spice of etc.


#6

Don’t know


#7

naughty nude cards, gotcha.


#8

Some of these ones are distressingly booby, tbf. Awful scenes.


#9

Mate it’s 4pm on a friday!

Left things on kind of a sour note with one mate a while back and havent spoken since. Made one new friend!!!


#10

dont think I’ve lost any. made about 20 new ones.


#11

Made a few new ones. A couple have passed away. The past year has been a bit hectic and I haven’t been able to see some of them as much as I want - hopefully this year will be better.


#12

Had no friends. Still don’t.


#13

Deleted two friends from Facebook in 2016


#14

checks facebook

phew!


#15

lost best friend to cancer, not made any new ones.


#16

GAINED: 2

  • BIG BAD EX BF who broke my heart and then ghosted me a year later when we were insanely close best friends… yeah we’re now friends again. seems incredible that it would ever be possible for us to be JUST FRIENDS, but that’s where we are now, which is lovely
  • friend’s fiance - theyve been together for ages but didn’t really know her well, but she’s now an established part of the friendship group and i actually like her more than the friend :’)

LOST: 1

  • friend of a few years who randomly turned on me in May and has dedicated an inordinate amount of her time and energies towards slandering me/my friends, sabotaging my/their work (hacking accounts and suchlike), threatening to sue us, publicly starting drama for no reason and making the general atmosphere tense and toxic… it’s been hellish. she’s not mentally well and i do hope she gets better, but i’m not a saint - she’s massively soured nearly a year of my life, so she can go liberally fuck herself tbh. i mean she’s done a really shit job of establishing me as the villain and has ended up completely isolating herself, but that makes her fight against it even more and then alienate more people. vicious circle. sad!

#17

not only gained some newbies but also got back some oldies who had lost contact! woohoo!

did lose one friend after a comment on facebook about grammar turned in to all out war. that was… a bit weird


#18

Gained:
A couple to play penoid board games with and eat at restaurants that cater to the dude’s many allergies (he used to work with the TV)
Some nice people from a Facebook group for local 20/30-something women who want to make friends with other women (not a euphemism). Wouldn’t call them friends yet but there’s time
Made a concerted effort to meet people last year so I’m gonna keep doing that this year

Lost:
None this year


#19

Haven’t lost any friends recently, haven’t made any either. Would like to make new friends but I’m too stuck in my ways :disappointed_relieved: (literally all my close friends are from school/uni so made when i was a teenager)


#20

I have this thing where I pretty much can’t make friends with people unless it is through someone I’m already friends with, I just don’t have any personality unless I’m with my friends, I can pretty much trace back every friend to other friends right back to playgroup, like people have been passing on the baton of my personality for decades
