      Hi Martha,

      It’s the infographic which shows the results of a poll we did, rather than an article. Although it would make a good article, which we will do.

      Best, Geri

    I recently ended a friendship that started when I was 30 we stayed in touch through the years and then I moved back in town 2 yrs ago ( I am 59 ). After seeing my friend again on several different occasions I realized we were very different from one another and furthermore I am at a point that I’m not into games and excessive bs, and she had plenty of both and had become very catty, so I deleted her off my social page and cut all ties with her with no regrets. It appeared to me she got caught up in who could stroke her ego 24 -7, it wasn’t going to be me. I like real people who don’t run from talking about real issues and the occasional family issues. Life is good

      Hi Martha,
      Enjoyed your comments. We do recognize the kind of people we most want in our life as we get older, as well as those who we’d rather see going out the door instead of coming in. Good weekend. Geri

      Good for you! And I get it. I was friends with this one girl since we were toddlers. Although she tossed me aside for some new friends during our teen years (I wasn’t “cool” enough, I guess), when we ran back into each other in our late teens, we would catch up on each other’s lives, go about our lives for a while, and catch back up again. Well, she really rubbed me the wrong way one day about something very personal, and it’s very similar to what you said. I guess I never realized that I was the cooler one in our teen years, because I wouldn’t drop a friend when it was inconvenient; I’d be there through it all. So now that I’m turning 50, I prefer friends who like to laugh and also don’t mind sharing and listening, as well as giving and accepting RESPECTFUL advice. Leave the cattiness to the immature ones.

    The headline read “Why.” Which should list why, ya think?

      Hello, Layla

      It does list “why.” 47 percent cite self-centeredness as the reason.

      REPLY
      • Geri Brin says:

        the other reasons were:
        They’re too self-centered (46%, 193 Votes)

        Took offense with something they did (45%, 187 Votes)

        You have nothing in common anymore (30%, 127 Votes)

        They’re too bossy and know-it-all. (28%, 116 Votes)

        A life event changed you (25%, 103 Votes)

        Money (13%, 53 Votes)

      “It’s always enlightening to learn what other women in our generation are thinking and doing. Every Thursday, FabOverFifty asks members of our community a series of simple questions about pretty complex issues, then we report the results to you the following week,” This is a survey result, when filled out online
      you were not required to list a reason

        Hi Donna,

        We did ask the reasons, and self-centeredness was the leading reason, at 47 percent, which the infographic shows.

          Wondering about the ‘self-centeredness’ response. It seems a bit vague. Do they mean due to other people being too self-centered?

          REPLY
          • GeriFOF says:

            Yes, it means women ended relationships with people they thought were too self-centered.
