Do you talk with them or do just answer each other’s posts?
Just answer each other's posts. On rare occasions, I do message people.

Well your girlfriend don’t count but your mate does, how’d you both meet?
So his girlfriend isn't his friend?

I have no contact with family. But do have several close friends who I see regularly and know straight away if anything is not ok with me.

I have friends I have accumulated over the years. Still would like 2-3 close buddies who live local. It's tough though. I did a lot of local volunteering but still hard to make pals.

It can be hard to find people that are true friends that accept you when things aren't going to so well

Nope. All my friends went missing when I became ill. Shows really that they were not true friends after all. I have my wife who is now my best friend. I am not really bothered about making new friends as I like to keep people at arms length away from me.
