    Most sociologists agree that men do not form very strong bonds with either men or women, that only women offer those strong feelings and support that adds up to a very sincere friend in times of great need. So men have rather superficial friendships with other men usually based upon shared experiences of drinking, sports or sex. But with lpsg we do not have the opportunity to share experiences directly so the very casual friendship, the most abundant in men-men relationships do not readily exist. So have any of you formed a really meaningful bond with another lpsg buddy. I have I think with several with one very particular one that I communicate on several levels with, and this for more than three years. I think this a strong recommendation for lpsg, a chance to have a different kind of friendship with other guys, not based upon fishing or fucking sessions we have shared.

    Developing Friendships maybe .. an ongoing thing
    Perhaps it will take a little longer with Cyber Friendships/all things taken into account
    I have considered thruout life..if you can make a friend a Year .. your doing exceptionally well
    I have NOT achieved this Goal
    (probably one per 10 years/depending on what your expectations of a friendship is/and his/hers of course
    enz


    that only women offer those strong feelings and support that adds up to a very sincere friend in times of great need.

    -with the above statement...i have ALWAYS believed my Women friends off far superior emotional down to earth support..than men,s flighty opinions'

    True, most women are like that. But I met an awesome person here and he also supported me already in difficult times. And I'm very thankfull for that. He don't give flighty opinions, but real support. I hope this friendship last. He's a good mate with all the right intentions.

    I understand and respect what your saying very much
    I think an older person LPSG (MAle) has a far differnet outlook re such to the Women ..obviously
    in that his experiences in life often get him to view others opinions as rather..so..so'..and he could be prone to giving more 'off the cuff' opinions to fellow males..than a lady would
    (evident by the comments i have seen Women give in some threads)
    I have noticed several youngsters your age mentioning they have found a GOOD amount of Genuine support from older Memebrs LPSG (Male-i assume) and THAT is what the sites all about..no doubt.
    WONDERFUL..it does serve its purpose
    THANKS fr the site Rob-e
    enz
    (i especially like yr.. with all the right intentions...very heartening that)

    I would wonder why those sociologists think it's good study to apply blanket generalizations like that.

    I am a man who builds incredibly strong and complex relationships with people that have nothing to do with sex. And I am sure there are plenty like that. So they need to rethink that one.

    Well I've been lucky enough to meet people from LPSG in person. I have met one person who falls into the friends for life category and others who have great potential.

    I would say that I have several people that I've met from that I would easily put into my friend category. I still haven't seen them in the actual flesh because they're all over the world, but our mentalities have certainly meshed in a very good way. Making 'real friends' isn't a complicated as people think. With me, it only takes being honest and genuine with someone and then you have to let go of the reigns and let them do their part.

    So, to all of my friends on here (you know who you are), I love y'all, miss y'all, and I can't wait to talk y'all. Peace:cool:

    I've met alot of fantastic people here and consider them good friends, but i haven't really got anyone with who i am on a real deep and personal level with. I guess it happens or it doesn't.

    I'm going to have to say yes. There is one person in particular who I consider a mentor, he is much wiser than me and I've learned lots from him.

    Yes , I would say so. There are shifts and turns because our lives do take up time but I would definitely call them friends. We have continued to communicate over a series of years whether on the board or not.

    There's one guy I've met on this board that I would call a friend...
    He's not only a cool guy, he's more honest & supportive than others who are actually in my circle...
