I usually like to wait til the sh!t hits the fan until I start counting friends, it's much easier that way...

i think 5 is a good number but I put 6-10 for future friends. Anything over 10 is too many. i dont think people have 15 friends that all would do the same things for them that their best friend would do, so most of those people are really associates. I have 5 friends and i could call any of them and ask them to do something for me, and know that they all would do it, except apparently hold my hair if I'm puking. they say their squeamish.

i'm not shy or ashamed. there are three people in my life i consider true friends and one is my younger sister so i don't know if she actually counts. these folks know me and my quirks so well that my quirks just aren't quirky to them anymore. i'm a hard shell to crack but these three know me inside and out. all the other dudes and dudettes i run with are background noise compared to my mel, chels and jon.

Well I have two brothers (one I trust, the other would sell me for drug money), and maybe two real friends.  Just listen to the words of "You Find Out Who Your Friends Are" by Tracy Lawrence to help you tell how many friends you really have.  It's one of my favorites.
#8 | 1637 days ago

Well now I feel weird.. I probably have a circle of about 6-7 people I would consider best friends and another group a little more that I would do almost anything for and i feel they would do the same..

I've had a best friend that I can tell anything to, will be there for my at any time and any moment since I was 4 years old.  We grew up together, went to the same schools, and now live within 1 miles from each other.  I'm am blessed to have her.

I have a lot of friends but GOD blessed me to have her.  The other would be my oldest sister.  She is one that I have always looked up to and we have a special bond.

Online friends.  I can only say that I have a lot, but only a few that I feel I can trust completely.

I think it all depends on what we consider a friend.  A true friend is going to be there for you no matter what the situation is.  That could also be considered your best friend.  Friends aren't necessarily the people you hang out with from time to time.  I have a couple of true friends that would be there for me and I for them at the drop of a hat!  More of them are just "buddies".

I have a group of about 5 people that is like family to me (sometimes more so than my ACTUAL family) that I can rely on for anything, and vice-versa. 
Probably about 5 or so more people who are friends, but wouldn't consider them as close, and then quite a few acquaintances (friend of a friend, coworker, friend/family member's significant other, etc.).
Everyone else I hate with a fiery passion.

If it is really a true friend I think the number would swing to a lower number rather than higher. In my opinon a friend is someone that is always there for you and the two of you have been through something diffcult and made it through.

My three older sisters are probably my best friends. Then a couple from childhood who are always there for me when I need them and my little group of close teacher friends.

Basically  I had one was very close to me for the longest  I known about half of my life  my best friend , Even tho I missed her she's in heaven for 4 yrs now  Along I have another  who happened to be sudden close to me since nearly a year.  I mostly stick with one or two friends I am very close,  the rest are just socialising friends :)

I have a at least 20 from here there and everywhere that I have spent timed, worked or lived, that I can always count on no matter what. I very lucky in that regard. The internet makes it easy to still keep up or harrass. lol

I have one truly awesome friend who I don't get to see as often as I wished, but when we do get together it's like we had talked only five minutes earlier.  I also have another friend who lives 14 hours away.  He and I talk about once a month, but it's usually for about 3 hours at a time.  We've been friends for  20 plus years, and our respective spouses are entirely fine with our friendship, just kind of rolling their eyes and sighing when we go on and on and on and on.......
I have a ton of online friends, some closer than others, and many I want to meet someday.

I'm lucky it's pretty easy for me to make friends (ok it's been kinda hard to be close with these new co-workers). Maybe 2 or 3 people I trust completely, people I've known for 20 years. My BFF is someone I've only known for 3 years tough! Making friends online is COOL!!

A few, including family, those that I've known most of my life, and God. Also pets.
#30 | 1636 days ago

 Truth being relatively related, I have many acquaintances who have later become good friends in my life, in fan IQ I have quite a few good friends, for me friendship is without any conditions, but to be there with friend in times of need, to share the joys and multiply the JOYS.
To share the agonies and sorrows and divide them to minimal. To share thoughts and be the change for better life in  this world.Each one of the ids on the site is potential friend. Wisdom is to use intellect and  experiences, have the choice of freedom.Some have left this site, for and by  their own choice, but our friendship continues.

...i too consider myself blessed by the many friendships i have...
i've heard that when you are going through hard times, you find out who your true friends are....and amazingly enough...everyone i thought to be a true friend...turned out to be exactly that...   ...as a matter of fact...there were more out there than i thought...
...i thank God each and every day for my friends...and pray that i am able to be to them what they have been to me....
#38 | 1635 days ago

I have 4 friends that would give their all for me as I would do for them.  I am overly blessed by these friends.  I know I can pick up the phone and call them any time and they are never too busy for me.  And because of them, life is so much better. 
#39 | 1634 days ago

Friends are those who take you as you are good, bad and the ugly truth without judgement. There are not many people that I can honestly say I have ever met in my life to call a friend. Trust levels are not high, because in general people are too catty and unpredictable.

When my sister passed away in June I found out that friends that you have you should treasure, because they might not be here tomorrow.

as john wayne wrote in the foward of my uncle chuck roberson's book,"The Fall Guy" he said chuck, you can count em on one hand.....count me in........  and he was so right......i think i would be luckey to even be able to count that many! When you go through a huge tramatic and physical change you really find out who your friends are.........
