    I only have a few friends on EP and I am glad because they are quality...if some one has a bunch of friends some get ignored...on the other side of the coin...if some one has a bunch, some one should always on to talk to....and all my friends are of the absolute highest quality.

    Or Even Just 1 Great One

    I can't seem to keep acquaintances in my life any way because I run out of things to say if the relationship is just surface deep for a long time. I've only ever had 1 true friend at a time and would like to have at least 1 true friend again.

    One or two doesn't matter.

    In my immediate vicinity. People who know me in person. Yes family counts. who respect me. I don't crave many if I have one or two. I could never get to know many, it is hard to divide yourself up emotionally. There is only so much of me I can devote or give with caring and...

    To Much Energy

    I just think that having a ton of friends tatkes up too much energy.  It takes time to get to know someone and if there are 100 someones than you got to have a lot of time and energy to put in.  I'm just not willing to do that.  Although, I have a couple of good...

    I have a few great friends that I can count on for anything. They know that I would rather not burden them with a request, so when I do they quickly jump in to help. Funny enough they are the same way, and I'm proud to help them when I can. The tons of acquaintances I do have...

    Not Quite Literally But I'll Go For Depth Over Breadth Any Day

    Don't get me wrong, I like being on good terms with a lot of people and having lots of people I can chat with have fun with, but if I had to choose I'd go for an handful of deep personal friendships than a bunch of shallow friendly ones. I'm lucky to have both a few super...

    I Don't Have Many Friends But Love the Ones I Do Have

    I don't have many friends at all.  Maybe like 7 or so.  But, that is ok with me.  Some are aquaintences, but a few are true friends.  I would rather have a few people that actually care for me and love me for who I am, that I can count on, rather than a bunch...
