keeping my circle of friends small..

It's not that I'm not friendly or unsociable; it's just not my thing to go around making new friends every time there's opportunity. And because of that I'm often tagged as a snob. A co- worker of mine even called me "the principal" I'm not offended, I knew it was intended as a joke anyway. But what other people don't realize is that friendship is important and at the same time fragile. The reason why I don't make too many friends is because I wanted only a few to keep me company. And by few - I mean, the real ones. I see a lot of people hanging out telling everyone that they're friends with this guy or that but whenever they have the chance to talk against their so-called-friends, they often do. And they do it with prowess which is why I'm often disappointed. Makes me all the more cautious when making friends. I'm happy though that I have a few friends who I can always count on. And boy! was I glad to have them in my life.

It's a good thing that you are selective about choosing friends! Friendship isn't about showing off, it's about support, love, trust. Quality must be more important than quantity in keeping friends!

I couldn't agree more! Some people just don't realize that. Friends are people for keeps and they are hard to find, I say.

Same here, I get bored easily as well. I would rather hang out by myself with my nose stuck in a book or surfing the net but not really going out with friends. I visit them though and chat and catch up on things.

@MGjhaud that's nice. My friends think I'm lazy - I am. lol I don't like going out really, these days, I'd rather have "me" time and probably talk to them a little

I agree with you....infact I also never try to make a lot of friends...it is good not to have friends than being cheated...I just have a few best friends.... that's all. ..

Same here - I do have lots of acquaintances but I don't consider most of them my close friends. It really is a good thing to have few trusted friends you can depend on.

Use those few to keep you company and consider the rest of them connections, maybe one is a lawyer, banker, you never know when you need someone
