Finding New Friends or Old?

Human life is dynamic and throughout his life he creates relations. While some stay forever, a few fad with time. Yet I feel finding old friends give a unique happiness and is nostalgic as well. Most recently, about 2 months back I found more than 75-100 friends through facebook. Most of them were my school and pre-degree friends whom I missed some 17-19 years ago. Though we make 1000 new friends everyday, what I feel that happiness we get through 'find a lost friend' is manifold than making new relations. Am I right?

One has to be selective and careful in choosing books and friends. Both leave a profound effect on our lives all along our lives. And they are the ones who stay with us permanently. So, it goes without saying that only old friends reman. The joy of being with them even for a minute is immeasurable and beyond words.

I don't know ....as far as friendship s concerned I have never been very lucky..even if I have tried to be a very good friend I have not received 100% friendship. I feel we should what you are talking about here is acquaintances and not friends. Practically we cannot be frnds with more than 2 people at the same time. But yes getting in touch with old school mates and classmates is always a pleasure.

I am not too bothered about the numbers nor in finding someone simply because we studied together or were friends at one time. I feel that with experience and maturity we all would have grown in different directions and it is best to find people who are of the sme wave length rather than have too many friends...I have a few selected friends only on facebook and unless I know the person or am introduced by a trusted friend I simply dont accept . I do have some old school friends who I have never lost touch with and a couple of them I have added on when we across one another..

Most of the faces of the classmates during school days have already faded from memory.  College days were great, with few intimate friends and freedom of youth. Long gap after that…. and time has separated everyone through different streams of survival. Who knows where they are and what they are now?.....  Still there are few rare occasions, blessed with the presence of an unexpected visitor from the past,…. creating surprising moments, indefinable joy and waves of nostalgia.

Friends play a major role in our life. We can be ourself only when we spend time with friends. Especially with old friends the joy is doubled.  It makes us refreshing when we spoke about those earlier days we spent with them. Its really a nice feeling.

I agree. Facebook is a good device to find old friends. But I can't use this device. I am around 70 years and my old friends are also naturally of my age. Most of them would not be using internet. It is difficult even to recognize one another when you meet after a long gap.  A year ago, I went to Mathura where I could recognize an old friend. But he is also quite old and could not remember anything about me or even my name.  This visit to Mathura was after a gap of about thirty years.

Maintaining old friends is always gives us a pleasant moment. Even our old friends did not talk to us frequently we will remember them and they will try to speak to us. Real friendship definitely will never break up. I find my school friend after 13 years and both get happy remembering about the school days but one thing i accept that we are close to each other in school days but after college and further studies we are not met each other. Time decides everything. We can get new friends but the question is do we are showing the same love to the new person?. The answer is definitely not. For some cause we are finding others and maintaining the friendship. Friendship whether it is old or new if maintained regularly then only we know in and out about that person.

Whoever the friends are new or old but they should be true friends and they should do true friendship and we also be like that,if you get that kind of friendship you can continue the relation till your deadth.

Having old or new friends should be aside, friends who are worthable are the main they may be old or new they should value us and our opinions and deeds.

Perfectly agree. What could be more happier than meeting an old school or college friend or an old office colleague down the street or in a bus or anywhere nearby our neighborhood! That is one of the most happy thing as we already know their nature and we talk friendly and enquire about each other's well being and level to each other has risen along with any other opportunities that we may find through them apart from spending some relaxing time.

Yes I agree having a trustworthy friend gives us happiness. But a friend who is trustworthy and with whom we shared many memories and lost touch with him in this mere rat race of life suddenly we meet him unexpectedly, yes it will bring all those memories back ,we will live those memories again in a fast forward mode. Definitely it will give us a unique happiness to us.
