Probably you started college and made friends right away with the most convenient people. Which is totally the right and easiest thing to do. The problem is, sometimes the most convenient people don't end up being the people we like best.

Ask A Dude: Can We Keep The Friendship?

A few months ago, I finally built up every shred of courage in my being and told one of my closest friends of several years that, well, I didn't just want to be his friend. To be fair, I was pretty certain that his response wouldn't be what I wanted it to be. The problem was that I had reached a point where I needed him to know so that I could move on with my life.

Surviving Senior Year: Separation Anxiety

On Thursday night I had dinner with a friend. We went to the same college, but she graduated last year, so I haven’t seen as much of her as I used to. But when we finally had the chance to hang out and catch up, it reminded of how much I missed her, how much I missed having her around. It made me stop and think about what would happen next year, after I’ve graduated.
