In growing up you make and lose many friends, or the people you call friends. When you reach adulthood you pretty much have your core group of people that you are known to spend most of your time with. Now along with that core group of people you are close with there is another group of people that most would classify as associates. Now these associates are the ones you tell some of your personal dealings to, but not in great detail. In other words you give them clip notes. Nothing wrong with that right? Wrong.
