I lost a bunch when I moved from New Jersey to Long Island.
I lost a bunch when I moved from group to group in high school.
I lost a bunch after high school when I segued into hanging out with my new college friends.
I've lost a bunch of college friends who moved or drifted away.

Sometimes, I bailed on friendships due to bad behavior on their part. Sometimes, I've had people bail on me.
Sometimes, I've stuck around when I should have bailed.
This episode goes into all these combinations.
