I just talked to a good friend of mine from college. He's currently applying to MFA programs. I was amazed by how little we had in common. No jokes, no common interests. He didn't even want to hear about my law school. When I tried to talk about anything in the past, it felt terrible. I ended up asking him a few awkward questions about his current life and hanging up.
Times like these make you doubt the very foundations of friendship. What do we really have in common with another human being?
Does anyone ever have similar experiences?
