COVID-19 killed my friendships.

Every single last one. Maybe they were never true friendships in the first place.

I gave up. My friend tells me how she is hanging with lots of people every week and then has met up with me once in the last half a year. Why does she even bother message me? I’d rather talk to an AI bot.

The world is changing and we are being invited to reconfigure ourselves and our connections alongside it.

I hear you and understand. The lack of face to face time with people has eroded relationships and friendships. Sometimes losing the friends is not so bad. One woman who I thought was pretty mellow turned out to be a hotheaded online anti-government type. I had no idea until the pandemic! Another woman I realized I actually hate her and am only friends with her because of our former social circle overlapping. I see these people for who they are now. And I’m glad to shed the weight. OP, you will make new friends in the future. What is now, is Not Forever.

I was friends(or so I thought) with someone for 7 years and supported her through her painful separation.During the last year we would see each other once a week but since she's found a boyfriend and sold her house,I haven't heard from her in months.She has ghosted me and to be honest,it does really hurt and I feel like I was used.Life moves on and the pandemic has laid bare who people really are.

I'm trying to come to terms with the fact that some of my best friends weren't really friends at all. Ending a friendship hurts just as much - if not more - than ending a romantic relationship. Take the time to grieve, heal, and take care of yourself. There are many others like you who are looking to make new connections after *gestures wildly* all of this is over. Better days are ahead.

I think that hot-headed anti-government type of woman would make a great friend to help me replace all the stupid useless moronic sheep I had to rid myself of. Can you pass along her number? Thanks in advance.

I was in a relationship for nine months and this pandemic contributed to us breaking up. She didn't turn out to be whom I thought she was so I'm much better off without her. Life does go on and eventually these fair weathered friends of yours will have no importance in your life whatsoever.

i didn't have many pre covid 19. from what i did they've all been exposed for the shallowness they really were. people can be such phony manipulative liars. i really have no more patience or interest in entertaining those empty friendships if all i am to them is supply. rather be alone. at least i can depend on myself.

Anyone I know who has a partner dropped me like a hot potato last spring.
