Bad friends? - February 15th 2011, 02:44 AM

Does anyone else seem to have a problem with picking good friends?

Some of mine turned out to be murderers, complete druggies, rapists etc.

What kinds of bad friends have you guys had?

And here you are living, despite it all.

Wow. That's insane.

My friends just don't share many of the same interests as I do. I like to play board games, video games, read, and write. They prefer to sit around and act foolish whilst staying up at all hours of the night, sleeping when you're supposed to be awake. Every now and then they watch movies. But they rarely watch movies that I'd really enjoy. We've watched a few that I liked. But they're into the gory garbage.

The thing is, they have severe ADHD, whereas I don't. They can't focus on things for more than a few minutes. :/

Oh yeah, they don't eat dinner earlier than eleven o'clock at night, so it's difficult to plan a meal together.

It's like nobody in the real world shares any of my same interests.

Actually, I'm really cautious when it comes to selecting friends... so the worst I've experienced are "deadbeat" friends who aren't going anywhere in life. Well, they are... just very, VERY slowly. So I guess you could say I've picked a few immature friends who can't get their acts together. =P No criminals, thank goodness.
