"It's hard to find people with whom I can share my innermost things." Evgenia Medvedeva complained about the lack of friends


Figure skater Evgenia Medvedeva appeared in the YouTube show Alien Letters , dedicated to psychology. The athlete admitted that for a long time, although not regularly, she attends consultations with a psychologist, and also complained about the lack of friends.

Evgenia admitted that it's hard for her to find people with whom she can "share something intimate." For the past few years, she has been talking to girls who are older than she: they usually have husbands and children, so they "are not on the run and do not talk about new acquaintances." The 23-year-old athlete said that she quickly matured and outgrew many of her peers. "There were many emotions, events and upheavals in my life, I quickly outgrew adolescence. I had no time to sit with my girlfriends in a cafe and discuss different things. Everything that happened to me, I quickly experienced. I am not interested in discussing how someone the guy doesn't pay attention or how someone's guy likes other chicks," she explained. 

Medvedeva admitted that she sometimes worries about the fact that she may behave "arrogantly and harshly" towards potential girlfriends. "Perhaps these are high requirements for the information that I pass through myself. Is my closeness normal? Or do I need to relax the rolls and communicate with people?" she asked the host of the show. The figure skater admitted that she has "two people in her inner circle, not counting the family." She calls all the rest acquaintances, of whom there are "a lot, since she is a media person." “For a person to become my friend, at least five years must pass,” she said.

Evgenia Medvedeva also admitted that she envies the heroines of the series "Sex and the City" , in which "adult aunts sit four of us in a bar, discuss something and have been friends for years." The athlete admitted that sometimes she "also wants it that way," but so far attempts to build friendships with other girls only disappoint her. Evgenia especially does not like that her friends do not know how to listen to the interlocutor at all and like to speak first of all about themselves and their problems.

Evgenia Medvedeva is a two-time world and European champion in figure skating. At the Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, she won two silver medals: in the team competition and in the individual event. In 2021, she announced that she was ending her sports career, while since 2019 the figure skater has not competed. As she said earlier, she withdrew from the competition due to back problems. *Instagram is ow
