Friends, romans, countrymen

Well maybe romans doesn't quite fit in there. Since i've moved back to Australia I knew I needed to make some headway regarding my gay social life. When I was living in New York I had a huge crowd of gay (and straight) friends and was never in need of finding people to hang with. Coming back though, I realised i need to make some local gay friends. And I did. Many of them were just random people. Some i met online, either using facebook or manhunt or gaydar. Yeah that's right, manhunt and gaydar too. It actually worked out quite well.

Of those i've made a few really good friends. Friends I hang out with alot, whose company I really enjoyed. Someone to talk to if I just really needed to vent with someone. One even managed to fall into the category of a good friend, which also had some added benefits to that friendship ;) . But all that seems to be coming to an end. By the end of the year I'll have 3 good friends that have all left Australia and will be living on 3 different continents. One of these has already left and the other 2 will be leaving in coming months. It has really made me realise how much work i need to do.

You really don't realise how good you have it, until you don't have it anymore...

I am amazed at the wide variety of places my friends have come from -- and I have tons of them. I am fortunate in that I've been right here for so long that my list of friends is very, very long. Wishing you the best in crafting and creating a new friends list!
