My best friend is 43 years old, i'm 20 and i love her like a mother. I was just curious if it was normal for girls to "cling" to older women especially if they've never had a good relationship w/ their own mother? She is always there for me, i look up to her & want to be just like her..Is it normal to have friends of all ages once u are out of highschool ? [Smile] [Smile]

Many girls look up to their mothers as role models or sources of advise, and if they do not have that kind of role model, sometimes they look to another older female to fill that position, so to speak.

It's good that you have someone to look up to. Many people of all ages have friends out of their particular age groups-- though after high school, people interact more and more with people of all ages in the working world or wherever else, so those kinds of friendships often have more time and opportunity to grow.
