It depends! Well it depends on you and ones aim in making friends if one is simply wants to have big number of friends without caring for the quality of the friendship then it would certainly be waste of time and your mother would be right but if the friendsds are real friend that is " a friend in need is a friend indeed " then increasing the number of friends imparts happiness Again there are various categories of friends and friends for various purposes just like the best friend on the event of marriage there are childhood friend,there are business friends,and there are girl friends so to say that to have as many larger number of friends shall result in happiness and enjoyment shall be the travesty of the truth well do not forget twitter friends ,facebook friends ,digg friends ,myspace friends and mylot friends and friends on other social networking sites these are not firends in true sense of the world these are numbers with one interest just to converse and share which ever they like to I think what your mother implies is a deeper meaning to the word 'friend' and she is absolutely right in that sense simply having numbers without any good is of no use Please ponder what your mother says are the PEARLS of wisdom and remember only a few I repeat a very few could be your fiends to be worthy of your friendship alol the best to you thanks for putting up a very relevant issue

Making new friends is like adding another joy in our life. They make our life easy and the best thing about having friend is you are learning more about yourself from them.

for me i guess no, as somehow hey can help me with my life. friends can make you laugh if you have problems. you might not need them now but someday they will come to you with open arms. and why make a lot of friends if you can only have few but genuine. they might be just an acquaintance like if you saw them you will greet them but not really o the point of spending too much hour with all of them.

No my dear friend making more friends is not waste of time instead of that its good that you do have many friends because friends are always in need where ever we are in deed so my dear friend your mom is absolutely wrong and tell her that making more friends is not waste of time.
