Just be yourself and you should be able to find friends who will really like you for what/who you are.

You are right. But you will find only few. My doubt is that some people have so many frieds. Can any body make a number of true frieds? I think one might have maximum five intimate friends.

I believe that we don't need to have too many friends. A few friends can do as long as you trust them and they trust you. These few friends where you can call any time of the day and they are there at your side. But if you can have as many friends as you can, it's alright as long as you know how to divide your time for them, and know how to handle a huge number of friends. This is just my personal opinion. You can gain friends by showing that you really care for them.

Once you start trusting an acquintance they become your friends and among the most trusted friends are your intimate friends. Once cannot have too many intimate friends in life. There are very few people we can trust a lot.

I don't have many friends either but those who are my friends are my real riends and I know I can always count on them. I know so many people that are always sorrounded by friends but when they need something all those friends suddenly disappear. That's why I really don't wanna have a lot of friends, although when I was younger I really wanted it. With years you just have less and less time to build new relationships and when you get a new friend you cherish that relationship. I think that you should spend more time with an acquintance you want to become better friends with. When you get to know him/her better you will have more things to talk about she/he will talk to you about more intimate things and your friendshio will become solid. That happened to me this year with 2 girls and I like our friendship.

To make more friends, make an effort to spend more time with acquaintances, the only way that you develop friends is by spending time with people. The best way is to get yourself into a situation where no one has friends, such as starting at college or university etc or a new job.

i hope you dont have a specific number , but friends are easy to make as long as you are social,but also remain true to urself coz you wont maintain friends if you are a lier , a cheat and also you want to always be the best. Friends are people who wants to be with you to not only hang with you but also know that you will be available when they need you ,so stop thinking of yuorself if you want to makE real friends,in friendship always think of giving not only recieving.kilimanjaro.
