Can you ever have too many friends?

What do you think? Can you ever have too many friends in real life that you are too busy to keep in touch with them all? How do you keep your friendships going if you have lots of friends? Do you think you can ever have too many or are you of the belief the more the merrier? If so how do you go about keeping your friends close and not neglecting them?

I had to think on this one. I don't have a lot of friends in real life actually. I have a lot on line and I consider them to be very good ones but actually ones that I see personally I don't really have many. Just not the way I am I guess. I don't go out a lot so it's hard to meet new people. the friends I have on line though mean the world to me. I talk with them daily, or at least every other day if not daily. I email them, I play games with them. I do a lot really just not physically in their presence. I do think one can have too many true friends but there is a big difference between a true friend and just someone you talk to now and then. I hope that makes sense.

I dont see any problem in having too many friends.I may not be able to keep in touch with all of them.But some point of life,we will meet them again..Whomevers contact I ve,I call them atleast once in a year or go and see them when they are back at home.Internet is some place where you can keep in good touch with them all.There are lots of friends site where you can go and find out friends and make new ones...

Now that I'm getting older and have a family I've come to realize I would rather have just a few really good friends I can trust rather than lots of fair weather friends that I'm not really sure I can trust. I used to have lots of friends when I was in high school and college. But every since I've had my daughter I've lost touch with many of them. Either they don't call me or I don't call them. It's really worked both ways. I feel that the people that are my true friends are the ones that have made an effort to keep in contact with me and the ones I've made an equal effort to stay in contact with.
