Friend School

Is there such a thing? If there is, I'd like to enroll myself. I, obviously, haven't the first clue about how to be a good friend. I continue to fail at being a true friend. I think I need to have someone objectively evaluate my interpersonal skills, I didn't think I was doing that bad, but it's come to my attention that I'm mistaken.

Granted, I've never had lots of girl friends...never been one to be part of a big gaggle of girls. I feel more comfortable with a few close friends. Now, I know I can't be a completely intolerable person...I'm still very close with the first friend I made on my dorm floor in 1986. My other long-term friendship is with the wife of one of Mr. Rix's closest friend...we've been tight since the early 90's.

I've also been married for almost 16 years. Granted, my husband is a hugely tolerant man...but still, I must have SOME redeeming qualities.

But it's evident to me that I need some pointers on how to meet the needs of my friends so that they will understand how much I value their friendship and appreciate their presence in my life.

If you have the number of a good Friend School, lemme know.

If you find a friend school, can you let me know too. I apparently suffer from the same affliction.
