We will have friends in different stages of life. We will have friends in High school. we will have friends in college and later in our life, we make friends with different people. When we are near to them we may be meeting them regularly or talking to them regularly. But we need not forget the friends who are away. We may not be able to meet them regularly. But we can talk to them once in a while and whenever you get a chance you can meet them. I did my intermediate almost 40 years back. But today also I am in touch with my intermediate friends.
"Life is easier when you enjoy what you do"
When there is age gap o generation gap, the friendship becomes purpose or parameter oriented and has to be compartmentalised and categorised. However we can have more 'familiar's and contacts than real friends when the age gap is more.
Remember the following :
"Pray to God,Oh Sailor, but row towards the shore"
Perhaps instead of finding friends to be there for you, you try to be the friend to someone in need. That will work better in the long run, and you will find less disappointment from 'friends' who are not really there and ditch you in your time of difficulty.
