Most of us have a lot of friends.
However do you have any 'real' friends--someone you can really share life's up and downs with, apart from a husband or wife.

These could be friends you don't see a lot but know they are there if you need them, or they could be friends who you see/speak to often.

Is there a big difference between your friends, and your acquaintances?

I think I have a lot of people I like to be around. However if it came to someone who has my back when the chips are down I would say I don't have many of those. The only friend you do have, and can rely on, is yourself.
I have one friend of 51 years.
She is my dearest, but I do not share all of my concerns with her,as she has bad health.
I have about 7 really close friends, who I most certainly could call on.I talk to them all the time.I have known them for many years.

My acquaintances are just that!...I know we could not be close, so I keep them at arms length.I have about 25 of them.
I have about 3 real friends and they make my life worth living!
No , not so blessed to have many.But I do have real good friends.Very few.
I really don't think most people have "many". I think up to about 5 though is pretty good for real friends!

There's a huge difference. I have three friends of whom I could tell the world, others, not so much.
Good friends, a few. Have more acquaintances.

Have 'lost' several so-called 'friends' over the years' as they were just 'users'. Sad, but true.
I do not have heaps but those that I have are REAL friends.

I am more of a longer nowadays.

I have about 3 best friends that I can tell absolutely anything to without fear of judgment. I know that they will give me great advice too. I have alot of friends but only a handful of best friends. Some of my friends are great people but they may be unmarried, or without a family so they don't understand, so they are not people I could go to for advice. Even they admit that. I am very lucky overall to have a few top notch best friends, who are there when I need them. Even if I don't see them all the time, I know they will drop everything when the chips are down.

I have very close friends but I know how far the friendship extends and when it really gets tough your still on your own. everyone has their own family to take care of first.
