Is this a phase?

As I am getting older I want to hang out with people who are still evolving and think like I do (tired of fighting with those whose politics make me crazy). I am so tired of carrying the relationship/friendship. If I am doing 90% of the work I am stopping. I am leaving friends behind who are not interesting/or responsive to me anymore even if it is a long term friendship. The more I write the more I get centered and lately I am losing patience for working too hard on any relationship. Why is this? Is it because I am meeting so many new amazing women and one only has so much time in life to interact/care about people? Do we have a finite ability to only be friends with a finite number of people and for anyone we add we have to subtract one? I find myself bored with some of my friends who seem to be stuck in their lives. They recognize it but don't do anything about their situation but complain. No complainers need apply to be my friend. I notice I sometimes say things that are meant to provoke to get some to be alive with their feelings. As new women enter who are soooo not boring why do I need to have friends that bore me in my life? Oh am I getting selfish and that is something so new for me. I am getting so much more out of life lately as I see colors more vividly, sunsets more colorful. My life is richer day by day and I really think my writing has made the difference. Now to decide my relationships and friendships and familyships. What a road? It is definitely the one I want to be on.
