Do you think you don't have enough friends?

I have a really small social circle. My only remaining friends whom I see regularly are those from highschool. Besides them I got nothing else except for a bunch of online buddies. Eversince I quit school, I started to feel the need to make loooots of new friends, but sadly I'm unable to as I always find myself not having the time (busy with work). Have you ever felt something like this too?

I think we all move on as time goes by. I have always had a handful of close friends and many "acquaintances". It is still that way. I have someone I am still in touch with that I have known since my younger school days that I still count as one of my few close friends. You never know!!!

In fact , I am now still in college ,my social circle is also very small to some degree ,but I am happy that I have so many friends around me .Some are those who I can have dinner with,some are those who I can share secrets with ,some are those who I can work with.My time is limited ,so I may not have enough time to manage all of them ,to make them be my good friends ,but they are all my friends who I need.So just open your mind,you may meet many friends.

having no time is really a big problem.getting along with a friend does need time.under this circumstance,even if you can make new friends,further relationship could still be hardly established. but i think you can do this with your workmates:)you can overcome many kind of issues,and as a result become in good relationship.

I am very glad,i have a great deal of friends from born to now!most of my friends in the other city and have a busy work,so it is pity that most of the time,we just talk about through the telephone or the web,don't have chance to meet.

To be honest, when I was in high school I was never in a "clique" of friends, I was friends with pretty much everyone, which was awesome in my book lol, I wasn't a prep or a geek, or anything, I just fit right in the middle. Well, when I graduated literally 95% of my class went off to college at least 2 hours away, or moved to another state, which REALLY SUCKS. I don't have a single good friend left here, and I really like my coworkers but we've only hung out like 3 times outside of work, which isnt much what so ever. I really miss having a close friend, and all of mine are gone =(... Im pretty shy so it is hard for me to make friends. Oh well lol.

I don't have many friends. In fact, I only consider one person as my friend (not counting my boyfriend). This is because I don't open up to people easily. I like chatting with people and socializing with them, but I don't consider them as friends, only acquaintances. It's just that I somehow don't feel that "connection" with most people. And it's funny really because I don't have a hard time finding boyfriends (I haven't been "vacant" for 10 years except for a few months) but I have a hard time finding friends.

I have enough friends I think though few closed ones but also have many online friends. As we go along however we meet new ones. Well, I love meeting friends. It's wonderful having friends, they truly brighten our day. Though quite busy too, sometimes but had to find time for them.

Yes I feel this way sometimes. That's why I try to be nice and introduce myself to everyone in the circle, even if it makes me feel like an idiot. I love to have friends but then, so many people though. I want to feel popular so instead of me asking other people who they are and stuff, they already know me and that would be good. (=

I do feel like this from time to time. I keep in touch with a select few friends from when I was in high school and college and I went through a period in my life where I really didn't have any friends at all. Now that I'm a mother, I have developed a large circle of friends based around my kids. I joined a mom's group here and we have several mother's night out events as well as getting together with the mothers during playgroup activities.

Yup. Sometimes I feel that I should expand my circle of friends, but my schedule is just too busy to keep up with maintaining strong relationships with them. I only have a couple of good, trustworthy friends that I hang out with on the weekends and sometimes on the weekdays. I'd love to meet new people though, it's just that I don't have the time.
