As everybody know's, everything is bad in excess isn't it? now, do this apply to more friends in anyone's list? do you think having friends more than a limit is really bad for you? what do you say?

I think more friends that really supports your discussion made a real difference rather than by numbers alone. I myself have more than 200 friends on my friend's list but gee!!! the responses I get from my discussion only range to 30-50 and where does everybody goes lol! As more me I'am planning for a friend's clean up really soon. My version of shortlisting the quality friends that I made over the month and I really planned to do it on a monthly basis so that I can really respond to friends who start a good discussion as well as friends who are really there at my discussion too. I accept all the invite's I get from all members and I really gave them chance to hear thier views and comments but sometimes they just invite you and then nothing follows lol!!!!

The number of friends is not a great thing as for some peopel making friends is easy but according to me more friends means trouble and here i mean more than a limit.So, having good genuine friends whom you can depend upon is very good isn't it? yes, i too agree with your view that sometimes they just invite you and nothing follow's... Anyway's, thanks for responding

I keep the amount of friends to a limit that I can handle as I have all their notifiers turned on so ever day I get emails of their newest discussions and only after I have responded to the ones that interest me do I look at other discussions.

Oh you seem to be talking of only mylot friends is it? here i am refering to your life time friends as many mylotians will have friends in mylot but many of them are still starnger and won't be anything other than mylot isn't it? so, having more friends in mylot also doesn't make you gain more and same thing will apply in your real life also.... Anyway's, thanks for responding

Definitely i agree with you as few genuine, true friends are more than enough in your life isn't it? friends are my life and i have a set of real friends whom i can depend upon and sometimes when we get tensed friends will release our pressure iisn't it? Anyway's, thanks for responding

I don't have many, I wish I did. But I moved alot and switched schools alot so it's hard to keep in touch. One of my exes has so many friends from school and they're in their 40's now and are still friends. I think it's good to have a lot. I don't have many and I feel so alone at times.

What you wish you did? if you want to have more friends then go ahead, what is blocking you? but, my view is not to have too many friends which also might turn out to be bad.Don't you think too amny is too bad.Instead if you have some friends who are really trust worthy, it's too good for sure.... Anyway's, thanks for responding

In the world, one can't have a number of good friends for sure. There are a bunch of good ones and buch of bad ones in the group. It is necessary to get with both the groups as it tells us how to differentiate between the good and the bad. Or else if we are with the good only then, we only see the good and if we are with the bad then we see everything around as bad. Its just like one can't know the importance of good until he looks at the bad. Having more friends is not good but not bad also. More of anything is really bad.

That depends on who you call friends and how do you judge a friend as some people will be taking whoever they meet in life as friends and they even end up cheated by their own so called friends.So, it all depends on each individual on how they judge a friend isn't it?

Having many friends doesn't mean that you are loved by all.Let me tell you that more people are selfish and friends are not an exception for this.Most friends will feel jealous when you succeed in life and only good true friends will be happy when you succeed. Anyway's, thanks for responding

Are you talking about on myLot or in real life? For me, personally, I would rather have a few good friends that I know I can count on no matter what the situation than having tons of 'people' that I associate with. In regards to myLot, if someone is just adding people at random then I won't accept their invite but if it is someone that has common intrests or replies to my posts etc, then I will add them or send them in invite.

It includes mylot.Yes, few good friends and that too whom you can depend upon is too good isn't it? one true friend in a life time is too much.For me, a true friend is one who comes in when the whole world walks out.So, as you said few friends are good in life. Anyway's, thanks for responding

More friends are nor good neither bad. But one really good friend should existt, who save you from any danger you face in life and know what is bad for you and what is good.

Well in real life as well as in mylot I prefer having fewer friends. In real life it takes me a long time to make friends and to feel that I can really rely on them. I prefer having few close friends than calling many people my friends and not actually knowing them that well. On mylot as well, I prefer having few friends. I prefer only the ones who bother to respond to my discussions and who have common interests. I try to answer all my friends discussions so it is easier for me if I only have the few genuine ones on my list.

Frendship is giving us responsibility. I just delete few "friends" from my list. They didn't even noticed it, because they have 400-500 friends. I like to remember people. I like to know people better and remember all names. To many friends means "no friends".
