How many people are there in your circle of friends? Is it a big moving circle that takes in new people as it rolls along? Or is it small and compact? Or is there in fact an inner circle surounded by a free-flowing outer one? Wait … does that make sense?

I have a very small circle of really close friends that I can share anything with who have been their for me and me for them for many many years. I then have a much larger circle of friends and aquaintances that I only really see out socialising and see on an odd occasion at their homes. I also have a few neighbours who are becoming very good friends as I get to know them better. Ellie :D

Aaah bless Thanks Rosekitty what a lovely thing to say but yes I think if we did live nearer we would be friends and yes we are good friends on here eh! Oh I noticed that Nova posted that discussion with mine and your encouragement, wow what a lifestyle to have when younger and for him to have actually written in her journal, amazing. Can't wait til she posts some more. Ellie :D

Makes perfect sense at least to me. I see my circle of friends a tight knit center always growing with the widening ripples moving outward always in motion. The center keeping the outer strong and empowered.

I have a few close friends that would help me, if I asked. The free flowing outer circle are people that would sit down and discuss many topics, but I would never ask them to help me with a really personal problem. For example, several years back my husband tried to stand up and couldn't get up. I picked up the phone and asked one of my closest personal friends to come and help me and she showed up quickly without asking why I needed help. The outer circle may not have dropped what they were doing unless I spend time explaining what had happened to my husband. He refused to go to the hospital and my girlfriend took him to the hospital. She has a way of getting you to do it now. He was fine, but did spend time on crutches.

Yes, that makes sense, lol. I have a handful of really close friends that I am comfortable discussing anything with. Then another circle of friends just outside of that in which we are still establishing such a relationship with. Then there are other groups in which we are drawn together by commonalities. I have never really counted them up. It's really like any other relationship. Barry and I have gotten to where we can talk about anything, however, there are some things we are on different levels at. We don't push one another, but we are there for one another if we need to talk. Then I have friends that aren't into anything I like except in the automotive industry, parts, classic cars, etc., that I wouldn't discuss spiritual things with. I think that's okay. It's a diverse group.

Well my circle of friends has a strong foundation, we've all been together since we were kids. I'm 29 now, so I can say that we've all been tried and tested. Some younger generations do come out and chooses to be with us, for they find us always happy and have time for a weekend gathering. I guess my circle of friends is inside a circle, which is surrounded by a free-flowing outer one since I still manage to meet other people and make friends with them..

i said i got two circles of friends ones who i hold dear and trust with my life and care for them and another circle which people i like and would trust them to a certain point. i said my one circle has about 10 people in it,because it were i keep my close friends in. the second being where the other goes till i decide if i trust them enough to move to my inner circle. so it like you have two layers or circle in which to put your friends.

I have 4 people I consider close friends - people I trust with my secrets and feelings. Then there are about 6 or 7 people I consider good friends - people I enjoy getting together with. The remaining people in my life are either family, or merely aquantainces - people I get along with but have no interest in pursing a deeper relationship with.

I don't know if it makes sense or not, it is late and I am trying to catch up on the posts that I have received in my mailbox.. .. I have had a houseful of friends today, but it is not a normal occurence.. I do make friends easily and have a few that I do count as good friends, but I do not like to get very close to anyone.. I have friends that would like to get close and I am in no way standoffish, I just don't like to have someone to depend on me that much.. It is not a selfish thing on my part, I just have never wanted to get really close to people.. I am always here for them and they for me, but that is as far as I go.. I am not one one who likes to have coffee every morning, chat over a cup of tea everyday or go shopping all day.. I don't really know how I would classify my friends, but I do have a few..

Well, I have quiet a lot. But there are these that stays no matter what. Which means eventhough they haven't heard from me for ages because I'd been busy, they would call my mom's home to know how am I doing and they would still remember me on special occcassions. I feel shy but it was the foundation that we were friends since we were young. They have their own circle of friends BUT the "original" ones are different. I am a friendly person, but it is who stays that counts. =)
