Well, in my case I don't have 'close' friends, just classmates I talk sometimes. It's possible that you go out with some of them one day, and another with the others and nobody has to know with who you relate. But, as a rule, people have a group of friends, not two or three, because we spend our time with one kind, we don't change our personality and say 'Tomorrow I'll meet the posh girls and the day after tomorrow with the nerd ones' ;)
I have no close friend.
Yes, I agree with you, Andrew,that you should feel comfortable with your friends. If they start to bring you problems, you have to cut them off.
Yes, that would be great to have a company of close friends in which everyone would be a close friend with the others. However, I'm not sure if it really works. That would be interesting, Missionary Tom, if you could give some real-life examples.
It can happen, but as soon as one of my friends begins to
make such questions I will quit and threfore put an end to friendship.
Friendship is always reciprocal and lives of free thoughts, it tries to
halt problems, not to nurture them.
