No Friends of my own

I don't have any friends. I never really have had friends. I am a 50 year old man and I can look back at my life and honestly say that when I die there will only be a handfull of people at my funeral at best. Don't get me wrong I am not sad or depressed anymore. I have just come to the realization that everyone I know outside of work is because of my wife or my children. I live in a fairly small town of about 70,000 people and every day I see people I know, it is just that I know them because they are fans of my son. Who happens to be at tremendous athlete. Or they are friends of my wife who is the volunteer queen of the universe. She is so involved and at times I have done that as well but I don't really like being in the lime light all that much. We went to a basketball game last night and I saw probably 10 to 16 people that I said hello to and everyone of them I know because of my son's athletic career. Is there anyone else who is like me? I guess I could say a hanger on?

  • I guess I'm kind of like you. Never made any close friends and I am not a social butterfly. But I'm basically happy. I've always said I don't even want a funeral when I go, just cremate me and spread my ashes out in the forest somewhere.
