Close friends or lots of aquaintances? Watch

    Keep anon or delete as I know people on here.

    I was just wondering if it is strange to ONLY have a few close friends. I can only seem to enjoy myself when I'm with those who I am very comfortable with and spend a lot of time with. I seem to struggle socialising with those outside my group and don' like hanging around people I don't know that well, hence I am quite introverted. I am wondering if this is a bad thing. Maybe I should be more outgoing and trying to meet as many people as I can but am worried about having a load of aquaintances who don't care much and investing time in them would be pointless.

    The main issue here is that I am wondering if this is strange? I mean most people hang out in huge groups and are quite ougoing, have a friends list of over 100 on facebook, etc...

    What do you do and what is your opinion on this?

    Both... keep your close friends.. and also meet other friends. Because amongst those aquaintances you'll make more close friends.
    And i agree.. close friends are always there for you, and its nice to have friends who you can trust a lot.
