"That's a bit simplistic, Rick. Yes, while the more people you meet, the more chance you'll find a guy who can or will be great friends, just being "social" doesn't mean you're friends with someone. See other posts in…"
"Hey, I know how you feel, man.
I think talking to other guys, especially those we consider our friends, how much they mean to us is something that we're scared of doing, for all the reasons that other people have said. But I think it's…"

"I'm partial to Sherlock Holmes on audiobook. They're shorter than novels, being short stories (although the 4 novels are also good). So it's not as boring as trying to get through a novel. Also, they're…"
"+1 JB, you said this very well.
