I wonder whether the "really good old" friendships formed before you were actually thinking about making driends, and just happened, whereas now it has become more conscious a process, and maybe theefore a bit more worrisome. I think nowadays, a lot of people actually aren't as interested in making real freinds as they used to be. In the days before TV, let alone SMS, internet, etc., if you didn't have real-time friends, you got very bored and had little to do. Now, especially with high crime rates, people often prefer to stay at home and have virtual ( and not often genuine ) "friends" through facebook etc, and to entertain themselves online or with DVD, TV, and so on. SO I suppose part of what I'm saying is that there have been societal changes, and this isn't your fault.
Also, many people seem to busy working, to get money which they don't have time to spend properly or to enjoy.
