I don't have many in my physical sphere. But the ones I have are good ones. Of course we share no 'history', since I never had a 'worldly' friend until I left at 48.
In my cyberworld [and some would argue the credence of that] I have found many fine souls with which to commiserate, share, grow. A few of us have crossed the line from cyber to physical friendships. I live in a very rural area, which makes growing the friendship pool a little more difficult in some ways.
But I am content. This is not about me. I am somewhat of a loner - and probably would have been even without the Jw experience - at least to some extent, I suppose.
How about you? Do you miss the 'instant friend network' at your local Kingdom Hall? Are you a loner? Are you ok with that? Or have you filled your life with dozens of friends?
