Yes, But...

I am not good at this. I am especially poor at regulating contact. I think that most agree it is a rather fundamental concept. You see, I make a friend, and talk happily for a week. Or two weeks. Or maybe three months, and then I basically vanish off the face of the earth. So if you friend me, please forgive me if I'm a lousy friend. I try, I just don't know what's the matter with me.

This isn't a new problem :(

If anyone has any pointers...I would always like to hear from someone wiser than I, who has figured out what friendship is...

the nice thing about a true friend is that despite not talking to them for months, you pick right up where you left off when you do see or talk again.

acquaintances usually do not last, sometimes we confuse them with real friends.

I do distinguish between acquaintances and friends. Unfortunately, for me, it is much easier to maintain acquaintances than friends. I think it takes serious effort to get to the 'friends' stage.

I kinda have the same problem, except I am usually willing to talk people just expect me to do all the work so eventually I get tired and then the communication stops and what is a relationship of any kind without communication
