I don't have any preconceived notions of what a friend should be,,,,,gender and age is irrelevant.....its what's inside that counts. You will find that a true friend is a rare thing. If you make exclusions ba<x>sed on are, gender, race, religion, economic status it is you who will lose.
mths past replying . im way older then a few friends. i would state this- where i am in my head; younger people n i connect. why the hell should i care- its only other people who judge that causes any probs. interestingly enough- no1 has ever thrown me away. so i woud suggest that realistic interaction is more important then judgements.
older...younger....what difference does it make. blackarcher said it well
Being friends is being friends. Age, sex, finances, beauty, height, all that is unimportant. <br />
Besides, anyone "much older" than I is likely dead, as I am fifty-seven. (smile)
We always will have people older and younger than we which has nothing to do with friendship it is who we realate with that makes friends.
Yes, i have a special older friend, much older...he had romantic interests but I had none...we have a communication gap sometimes but he has wonderful insight on situations...and he calls me everyday.
age is not a problem for me in making close friends or just simple friend. I actually prefer older people. They are more understanding.
I actually have a friend who is in his 40s- and we are close friends. I liken our friendship to the tight bond that Michael Jackson shared with Elizabeth Taylor. My guy friend and I are just that close. We have been out on several dinner dates, and on rides through various cities in Maryland, we will just talk about any and everything. I value his friendship and am thankful to God for his investment in my life.
why would you
Yes~! I already have friends who are way older than me, opposite or same gender. :)
Why doess it matter their age. If their nice and not rude then wat the hell go for it
yes i have friends of both sexes and both genders my best friend in the world is 21 years younger than me and a female
Age is just a number. My best friend is 28 years younger and the opposite gender.
I have friends who are very close that are in their 70's and 80's I have close friends that are in their 20's. My older friends are actually the closest... I don't think that many younger people understand the value of friends from different generations...I know I didn't... perhaps they are worried that the older ones will take advantage of them.<br />
My closest friends have usually been female.. but not exclusively.
Sure. I like fossils.
If I have nothing against that person I see no reason not to be friends with them.<br />
Whether it becomes close or not is a story of its own.
