Hi Guys,
I'm a java developer working in Bangalore.At the weekends, all my friends go to movies or malls or just chill out at their places, but I always feel like going (and most of the times, I really go!) to the outskirts of my city and do hiking,or rock climbing or night forest trekking(and i like to get hurt while doing it, cause as long as the pain is there, i relive those moments again and again).
I couldn't find a friend with similar passion so I'm always left out from my group of friends!
Do you guys think somthing is wrong with me!

I think finding friends with similar passion is most difficult thing! Actually its not like that we find our most important thing in our room! Its like as Christopher Columbus tried to find India but found USA!
WE should not find friends with criteria of same passion! True friends always helps us when we in extreme condition! but we should not check them without reason.
Who knows when i find our true friends? First i should become true friend of others! If my passion not match with him/her, i try to make change my passion!

In Bangalore, there are lot of active groups who go these activities. And they have professional also (means you dont have to get hurt to live those moments again ).

Search on google, you will find plenty. I am member of one group that goes on long rides, but first criteria of that group is to have Bullet.
One of my friend is member of group which does marathon fortnightly.
But you can always find similar group and join them.

And trust me, there is nothing wrong in being what you are.
