    In a world of facebook friends, it is easy to forget who are real friends are. In all honesty, I have about 3 people I can text regularly and about pretty much anything/nothing. And I have a wider circle of about 20 people, who I can text about more specific things, but I do normally have to have a good reason to be texting them, for fear of feeling like I'm bugging them.

    This is quite a low number I suspect..

    How many texts do you use up? Do we actually need unlimited texts??

    I don't really text my friends, unless it's a joke or something relevant. I mostly call them before going out, or we meet up in a certain place. If I texted them on top of that then that would come across weird lol

    Definitely 3 Regulars...

    I definitely need unlimited the way I text

    Then I have a bigger group of people I don't always talk to, but when I do we talk loads...

    Then there's the once in a bluemoon I talk to and then we talk for a while...

    But yeah, it's because I live so far away from everyone

    I'd say there are 5-6 people I text everyday, and then 5-10 others that I text regularly but less frequently than the others. Although I do have unlimited texts, I mostly use whatsapp/facebook on my phone to talk to them, for the convenience really, and you can send pictures on whatsapp and facebook for free so it's just easier

    About 3 regulars , I agree with OP you can have those friends who your fine with talking in person but its just sort of awkward texting them .

    Then you have the reaaal friends who you text about absolutely everything and are the first you let know about significant things / changes going on in your life .

    I like to call it the facebook philosophy , you can be the most popular person with 800+ friends on facebook , but who do you actually speak to on a regular basis ?

    I have one friend who I text on a regular basis. And then I have about two more who I text to talk about homework and stuff. I find it a bit pointless to text people non-stop when you just see them at school the next day anyway.
