Because Blogger's "Adult warning" often goes into a perpetual loop (isn't working properly), I will be making all new posts at my WordPress blog. You can follow it even if you do not have a WordPress Account. There're also my Twitter and my Tumblr blog, my Facebook and my Google+ page and my group.
(Update: Blogger hasn't fixed its problem with the "adult warning". Will go back to posting at my WordPress blog)

Aging men and their friendships

An interesting piece.  I struggle to make friends. I don't like sport.  I dislike talking about trivia.  But I am loyal and giving (I think so, anyway), even though I'm sure I'm sometimes a pain.  I doubt now that at my age I will make new friends.  Acquaintances are easy.  But trust, intimacy, affection, are not. The roles allocated to us by society leave no room for male friendship, as the article discusses.

Ah well.  It is what it is.
