Ugh.
PC friends.

I swear, some of these friends change faster than a diaper on a baby.

So, I ask you oh glorious members of PC, how many friends have you gone though?
(Example: They left, Vanished, Unactive, Stop being friends, Banned, etc.)

For me, it's about closing on my second set.
What, like... 2 of my original group of friends still here/Talk to me?

And Some of my more recent friends have started flicking on and off from PC.

Everything seems distant, ya know?
Not as glorious as it once was, right?

So, Ever been in my position?
Or something like it?

Yeah, when I first got here, All my friends used to talk to me. Now it seems if only 10 of my oldest friends even say hello how are you anymore....Half of them havent logged in since then,and some just ignore every PM/VM I send.

A lot of my friends and I have drifted apart, either because we're both busy (so we'll talk from time to time), or because I'm fairly inactive on PC, we just don't talk anymore. :x

Actually, it's quite the opposite for me. The majority of my best friends consist of those who I met here. Sure some of them don't say anything to me, but perhaps their is a reason for that. I mean, I don't usually say hi to them unless they say hi to me. Maybe it's the same for that. So, I can safely say that I've yet to lose a friend here from any event that happened. People may leave on breaks, but I try my best to communicate with them when they come back. That's life, in my opinion. Out of all of my friends; through different communities and in real life included, friends through PC are people I want to talk to the most when I'm home. I've gone through so many friends at other communities, though. I'm now only friends with four of the many friends I made from that. But with all that said and done, PC friends are on the top of my friends list on contact list and (for those who have my cell phone number) on my phone as well.

I've drifted apart from almost all of my friends. x_x None of my original friends on PC really talk to me any more; they're all going inactive. As time goes, I make new friends as I lose some. :<

Firstly, there was the Xairmo / Neko Hina group, which is the group that I call my original friends. Most people are inactive, so I don't really talk to any of them anymore.

Aaand now there's this Memory / Derk / Rekhyt thingy which I found. :D And of course the competitive battlers clubby thingy with Dark_Azelf / Lalapizzame / whatev.

I've been through many groups of friends.

First the Tali + May etc group...

Then that probably lasted to mid-ish 07, when there was Lil R and Shika.

Then basically from then on, my friends variated, until about April, when Malyka + Jess etc started. Which have seemed to last.

But I don't really speak to May/Tali anymore, and it's like all my original friends exist every three months (In Tali's case it's true), but I'm glad with the friends I ended up with. :3

As long as I've been here, I've only had one set of PC friends. Some of them dissipated away... that is they just disappeared eventually and never came back. Some of them I still keep in touch with, actually. They're almost up there with real life friends and I could probably visit them someday. Some of them I talk to sometimes. It's all cool anyway.

It's hard trying to make a new set of friends since everyone's so different now... haha it's really hard to reconnect with the community.



haha.... you know... some of them are still around, actually. I should talk to them more often...

As I've been here on PC and other forums, I've lost, and gained friends. Some of them were just inactive, others were when we knew we weren't talking as much as we used to.

Through msn group conversations I've made some good friends, people I thought I'd never really get to know. I'm happy with the people I'm friends with now and wouldn't trade them for the world.

I've befriended so many people during my time here at PC that I've actually lost track of most of them, haha. But I did have friends who ended up banned but kept in touch with them either via PC's IRC Chat or MSN, then there are those that disappeared from the face of the earth.

Most of the friends I keep in touch with on PC are those I've actually spent the years with. But I know there's one particular friend of mine I've known since I actually first joined PC that stayed with me throughout, though we don't talk much nowadays, I really do miss her and hope she would come on more often. Though the chances of that are pretty slim.

I feel deserted. Especially when my pair got booted for a while. Two of my old friends talked to me about it. So I'm contented even if I have two or three friends active.

On the forum I used to be on I wasn't exactly one to make petty chat with those who want to consider me as their friend. As far as I was concerned, those with whom I wanted to talk were already in contact with me through WLM or personal message, and those with whom I did not were not.

Here, however, I'm being a bit more open to friend requests, if only because I'm not in an 'untouchable' position, as I was on the aforementioned forum.

December 7th, 2008, 04:31 AM
I've made a few friends when I was new to this place and since have made practically no more. None have left me or anything though, we've all stayed tied to the peg called WLM.
You'd think I know my way around the members by now, given my join date and post count... ha ha... ha. Oh well, I'm a content loner of sorts.

I've gone through several groups of friends. First there was Soulless and KittenGirl2000 who've left the forum and I'll probably never talk to them again. After that, I stumbled into the Pokémon Daily Chit-Chat thread and found Fable, Twinx (or whatever his username is now) and BeachBoy. Um, my social life was pretty much non-existent on the forum for a few months, 'cause there's a pretty big gap between February and June. I'm pretty sure I spent it in the DCC with Saryka and company, but I'm not sure. July came around and I found Muzazi, Memory and Azonic. Since then, I've been chilling with them. During all of that though, I've been able to jump in and out of conversations with the Fan Fiction Lounge regulars and certain people (Astinus, Sydian and Jax, namely) deserve to be congratulated for managing to put up with me for so long.

I'd probably have a lot more closer friends if people couldn't get their usernames changed. I don't know who anyone is anymore.

But yeah, friendships are the same offline as they are online: easily destructible. It's impossible to keep up with everyone and eventually, you'll fall out or lose contact with people. We are on a forum with eighty thousand people though; you can expect to have more friends than less.

I think I'm in that category of friends. A lot of my PC friends have gone inactive without giving me any other way of contacting them, so I've pretty much lost them forever. come back to me kat, scarface, zach and everyone else i forgot to mention!

bleck.
my best Interwebz friend has gone completely AWOL.
I get a PM from her like... once every one months?

and I've just drifted apart from my other group of friends.
I became a little inactive on MSN. :/
so that's partially my fault.

None of my friends have changed, but several of them have quit. The one that stands out most in my mind was Cybex Mewtwo, who quit sometime in 2006 I believe. He was literally my best friend, and now he's gone. My early pair, (poor girl. x_x;) Gothsinn23, quit and came back for about a week, and then quit again. XD And many others from 05. In fact, the only friend I have in mind that was there in 05 was Midori Chi. After I came back from quitting, she was the only familiar member. New friends can be awesome as well though. I've made about forty. XD

I don't really have any friends here. People always leave sometime. I left for 4 months came back and everything was different. New people and new look to PC. But asfar a friends go I never really had any I just post in TCTI and the DCC. Most people don't even know I exist here. xD

I don't have many active friends on PC anymore. At least those that I know of; I know a ton of them got a name change.

Buuuuut. In the fabulous RPG of Real Life, I'm friends with pretty much everyone. I know tere are a few people that are sick of me, but those are the friends that think they're better than EVERYBODY. you know. The three guys in the school that seem popular, but in reality they're all real jerks? Yeah. I wouldn't care if they just completely dropped my friendship.

But going back on topic, I've switched schools, moved to different states, moved on to people who wouldn't ruin my future, and met new people who would probably make everything better. Quite honestly, some of the best people I know are the people I've been friends with for like FOREVER online. ilu kels and nat ♥

I used to have a ton of friends on here...then I found out most of them were either fake, or caused too much effing e-drama in my life for me to actually be able to have fun hanging out here anymore. Some have turned on me, but most of my closest have left this site.

Gah...Things used to be so much fun here back when we had our little "clique" going. That died, and most of us have turned our separate ways. Hell, some of us even hate eachother now =/

To be honest, I still have a few people on here that I talk to now, but no one I would consider a close friend anymore.

I heard that, jerk. You are SO getting the trolling of your life on your profile tommorrow.

Meh, many good friends left, now I'm stuck with a few good ones, and some who feel they are on the top of many other members. Ok, I get that you are a serious person. Now YOU get that it's a Pokemon forum. Anti-trolling my butt. Still, they are cool enough, I suppose. Their no Toki Murderhoof, but whatever.

Hello,

I have gone through several sets of friends. Most of them left or got banned. I've tried to keep in touch but they never replied. Many, many of my old friends left PC, members like The Singing Chatot and ect. They were people back then that were good friends and the people who made PokeCommunity so great for me.

I do have quite a few friends now and I'm happy with them. I would never trade them.

I guess I haven't been active here enough to make friends, also my personality makes it difficult for me to make friends. But as we get older we tend to drift apart make new friends and we find that we don't have time for the internets anymore. I myself have been drifting away from communities I am part of, because I've just got bored. E-drama doesn't help things either, and unfortunately I have lost internet buddies because it.

I never really had any friends on PC until I branched off into the smaller forums such as FS or AH, then I made friends, I sometimes talk to them on here, but mostly on the other forums.

It's hard to make friends here amongst the thousands.

I've already had some rounds of friends... first my first pair and Clara and Devil_Silver methinks... Ghost fan club and Chocolate fan club was teh thing! Then that weird era began when me and my wonderful Joey and always awesome Oni did something weird and almost daily in the PCC... and Ryan joined and some others who probably don't know they've ever meant something to me ^^'

Now I'm in some kind of... bubble? I'm happy being here, and even if I'm not here, I can talk to people I like on msn. Still my main friends are IRL, because I find it weird to live a life on the Internet ._.' But some people here, I really wouldn't want to live without now. You probably don't know it either. But those I've said I like, I really do like. And need. Just so you guys know :3

I need to wear a diaper. ._.'
Love you too.

One of them wanished though. The awesome people always leave. >:

Friends? You can't live without them, But they can live without you.

This title is the answer to your question. If you're asking about PC friends, I'm only a little close to three of them. But yeah, people don't seem to bother about it much...

I'm pretty much friends with everyone at my school and in my neighborhood. Except Alex, I HATE Alex.

I've gone through many friends. They come and go. A lot of my friends are moving all of a sudden.

Most of my friends on PC are those I've met on other forums, and they're not all that active here. I tend to sustain friendships not through the board, but through MSN, IRC, LiveJournal and Facebook. If they go missing from all forms of communication, then I lose them - but that's hardly very often xD

I also tend to text my pair on a daily basis, so good luck to him ever getting rid of me.

There are two people who I've met (one on PC, the other on another forum but also goes on PC) who are very very special to me. The first one was my first pair on PC, and I argue with him lots, and I regret it, cause now me and him don't talk as much anymore.. I hate it.
The second person is always there for me, and we also get into so many fights, but he's forgiven me everytime. I'm grateful for these two people, if they know who they are, because they've brought a lot of happiness into my life. =) And even though now we are drifting apart, I still love them both and I'm going to try harder to reinforce our friendship.

ughh, this is a really bittersweet topic for me. yes, crap loads of my best friends on this forum have left. I barely talk to them anymore because they, and myself, have found other things to keep up us busy such as school, etc. while it sad that people I used to talk to everyday, I talk now to once a monthish, i't's nice to know we're doing things we want to do. and as long as my friends are happy, I can't dwell on it too much.

why would they have to share your personality to be your friend? *~*

but never mind. PC's got room for all types ^__^ and i talk to a lot of people i first met on PC..the first person on my freind list (brightfer) i only talk to occasionally. but better than nothing isn't it?

January 10th, 2009, 02:53 PM
Most of the original list that I got when I actually became active (which was around 3 months after registering) probably still remember me and I see them around occasionally (with the exception of the ones who became staff) and I occasionally send a joke around their way. but for the most part most of us got busy and the fact that always forget to turn on my messenger I hardly see most of them any more.

Edit: almost forgot the shout out to Ye Olde DCC group that I was part of! You rock!

I've had quite a few friends here, most of which I've sort of fallen out of touch with. Though I could try to fall back in with Forever and her group, I really dont feel like it, since I dont quite feel the same friendship I did when Alex and May and Tali were around....

As for my other friends, I do keep in touch with them when I can but sometimes I still feel like an outsider. but I think Jake is being a stubborn bull lately. (me and jake never really saw eye to eye x3)

Though to be honest, I am a bit shy.
