I'm not too friendly and outgoing, so I guess it's kinda hard for me to make friends. I have quite a few but at least I can call them true. Anyway, the latest friend I made is when I have to fly for 19 hours in getting here in my new home. I was seated beside this nice Malaysian woman in business class, so each aisle of a pair of seats are farther from the next passengers across the aisle and the front. I guess because of the long travel time, we have no choice but to start talking to pass the time, haha! She was such a nice woman and aside from me being married while she's still single, we almost have a lot in common. We still talk and exchange emails. We plan to see each other again on her next trip here. I plan to drive to where she will stay and we can go somewhere from there.

It takes time to certify that a person would be considered a friend. Come to think of it, ive not been making new friends lately hehehehe.

I dont like a lot of friend because I am not a person that will be friends with everyone that talk to me . I talk to people but I am not friends with them , we just have mutual understanding and respect . I only keep 4 friends at one time , unless I stop talking to one before I get another . I dont have problem making friends its quite easy , people just talk to me and if I am going to be spending some time at that location I will become friends with them .

I will be honest to you. I don't know. But I do know in this time it's hard to ask for 1 friend who will support you with everything. Most people are way to busy and if you expect 1 or 2 people to support you in everyting it will end quickly (or you will never find that friend). So better go for different people. With one you can shop, the nest you can talk, someone else is great to celebrate your holidays with, etc.. plus ask yourself what you are willing or are able to invest in other people. Since if you start relationships with people you have to invest yourself as well. Where to find those people? I don't know. I think they are everywhere, you can meet them everywhere. To be honest my need is not that big to find that only great, true friend. I like to be with me, I already feel tired out if I think about keeping someone company (or busy). I have always someone to talk to no matter if it's a stranger or friend or family. So my life is fine the way it is.
