I'm not quite sure I understand your question. It's like I "decided" to have a need to have friends, I just find that I feel very disconnected and altered when I'm not connected to friends and family - for example, moving thousands of miles away and having to make new friends if daunting - it takes years, really, to make really close friends - to know people over time and share a history. I have very great and close friends, but they are mainly back on the east coast. And it seems to get more difficult as you get older - less adventurous, etc.
