Yup, I remember this post, Jim Murray. Quite timely. "“Come writers and critics Who prophesize with your pen And keep your eyes wide The chance won't come again And don't speak too soon For the wheel's still in spin And there's no tellin' who That it's namin' For the loser now Will be later to win For the times they are a-changin'.” -Bob Dylan

For those who are interested, I wrote this on January 1, 2017. It was my predictions for the year. Now that it's almost over, you might want to see just how astute a prognosticator I turned out to be.

According to the Attentional Economic Theory, people cannot enlarge their friendship networks forever because - people must pay attention to maintain friends - people’s attention is limited. There appear to be two kinds of friendships in a personal friendship network: 1. active friendships and 2.inactive friendships. If people inactivate some of their old friends, they would save time for their new friends and would have time to make new friends. Thorngate, W. (1988). On Paying Attention. In n W. Baker, L. Mos, H. Van Rappard, & H. Stam (Eds.), Recent trends in theoretical psychology (pp. 247-264). New York: Springer-Verlag. You also might like to consider that we may need to detach from frenemies who use emotional manipulation to cause us distress.

Thanks for once again writing a great post and provoking a great discussion Kevin Pashuk. I don't think I smile as much reading and learning from a post and the comments as I do on yours. As far as whether I get the cut or not, I won't even ask. I'll just share an anecdote about my dad (of blessed memory - tonight is the anniversary of his passing). My dad never liked the "social games" of his circle of "friends". He was a very social fellow, an extrovert and storyteller, but he put up with the society stuff because my mom enjoyed the involvement. So, when there would be a holiday or event dinner at our home and we needed to schedule two concurrent nights to accommodate all the friends, my dad used to welcome the group and say, "We are very lucky to have the number of friends we do and to be able to share with everyone, we had to divide you into two groups; the "sympatic" (Romanian version of "sympatico") and those who are not." Then he would stop and carry on about something else, never telling the group present, which one they were....and no one asked!
