Growing up I had trouble keeping friends in school. I was the shy one so all of my girlfriends would stick around for a bit and then leave me for more social and popular classmates. As a result I never really got to enjoy a good friendship and don't like to open myself up to people readily.
It wasn't until college that I found my few close friends who I still catch up with. However, with our busy schedules now it's difficult to see each other often. I'm at the age where I want to surround myself with genuine friends and know that there are people who care about me though we may not be blood related. So my question is, how can I build a stronger relationship with my current friends? And what are some tips for keeping friendships as an adult?
Also, my bf and I share some mutual friends who I really like, but they are closer to my bf since they are males. I'd like them to consider me as their "friend" and not just my bf's "gf". What are some tips for staying friends with guys?
