    Have a group of 12 male friends from school then our larger group including girls of around 25, I'd say I only like 3 of 12 guys and only good friends with 2. Then 2 guys on my course at uni, one from when I studied in London I still talk to regularly and my girlfriend who I'd say is my only really close friend. Then one or two people from London I speak to occasionally, and another 8-10 people from London I would see if I went down to visit.

    So I'll say 1 really close friend, 5 strong friends. Up to 20 in total if including okay friends and up to 30-40 if including acquaintances.

    But people I'd actually talk to on a regular basis, we'll go with 6

    and you trust theese people more even though you dont know them aswell
    Trust is perhaps the wrong word. Perceive as better people is more accurate. But by extension that would include things like trust and reliance. For example I'd trust a bunch of people on TSR not to let me down, more so than I'd trust "friends" who have let me down numerous times. It's really a perception thing I guess.

    My definition of 'friend' has changed quite a lot in the last few years.

    Probably two. Four, if I'm being very generous.

    The rest are acquaintances.

    I have several friends but when I exclude those off the internet it would probably be a grand total of 1

    I have two friends, one who goes to a different college and the other we only became friends because we we didn't want to be alone at college.

    Oh right, i didnt understand the way you phrased it.

    But im super quiet in person and people dont like that. So they all ditch me because of my intorverted nature!
    And my looks arent very good so that doesnt help, people cant be seen with people who are bad looking here either.
    So ive got no hope of even having a convo with someone, let alone becoming friends with them!
    then you need to go out more and be extroverted if you ever want to get a gf

    How many best friends?
    How many close friends?
    How many of them are just friends you rarely talk to?
    I have 5 close friends and maybe 5 other friends from work etc. who I'm not that close to, but I'd still call a friend.

    I have 2 best friends, about 5 or 6 close friends and many more random friends who I like to hang out with. I don't really have friends who I "rarely talk to", or else we just wouldn't be friends I guess..

    and also you dont have to become extroverted, there are many introverts that are happy the way they are

    Three best friends, who I've known since nursery school.

    Six close friends, i.e. friend I trust and feel I can talk to about stuff.

    Then I'd say a dozen other people I consider friends, i.e. we'll hang out and stuff, but I wouldn't necessarily talk to them or ask their advice about things.

    Anyone else is just a 'mate' or an acquaintance.

    Currently - I have 1 best friend
    Close friends - I'd say about 6 or 7
    And the friends that I have that I rarely talk to - about 100 :lol: I'm just a very social person but I can't possibly have 100 close friends.
