i have only 65 friends on my list. just wanna know if having more than a hundred friends mean you're lucky to have so many friends & popular to all? but are they true friends? can you count on them? what's your opinion?

Having so much friend online doesn't mean you have so many true friends. I have about 200 friends in friendster but most of the are my school friends from elementary til university. Only 2 of them are new friends I knew from friendster. I just hate to add so many friends but never even talk or message them. I rather collect my old friends so I know how they're doing now.

No it is not. in Friendship, as in most human relationships, its always quality over quantity. I do not flood my account by accepting people who are not that close to me. I have another account which I use for common acquaintances and still maintains a private account for my very close frinds and family members. I am not ashamed to let anyone view my personal private account having only 26 friends on the list, because I am not insecured about that. Im happy having a few true friends. and For me, creating your account and enlisting them is all about your personal choice. Why would you be so hard on yourself wondering why some have 500 friends.. do you think they can maintain communication with all of it? That's absurd if they say yes... it would not be a meaningful communication anymore knowing you've got hundreds of people to contact with genuine cincern and love in just a few hours visiting your account. I do not get insecured with people having so many friends for I am happy with what I have. If your not happy with what you have, you will never be contented and will always get insecured of other people knowing that they have what you wanted but you do not have.
