I only have a few close friends who are very special to me. I think quality is much more important than quantity in this.

I think some people like to "collect" lots of acquaintances -- but they're not true friends.

No, you're not weird at all! :)

I would rather have a few close friends. These are the friends that I can confide in & know that they won't gossip & are looking out for my best interests. However, a lot of not so close friends are very good also, like when you need help w/things you can't do by yourself, like move a piano! And, everyone gets invited to the BBQ!

I would rather have a few close friends then lots of not so close ones. True friends are hard to find but a blessing to have

If you are content, that is all that matters. It does not seem weird to me, at all.

A few close friends is a better situation to have if one needs to reach out to someone in time of need, talk, or laugh. I have alot of not so close friends because of the job situations from time to time and also location of the parties(states away). I still consider them friends, but not able to keep close contact and/or visit like I would want to do.....

I have chosen apparently to have the few true close friends. As the years go by, the shallow ones drop away.

I think we each have an assortment of people in our lives who fill different roles. I have several really close friends here where I live, one really close one from high school, a number of less close ones with whom I stay in touch and a ton of acquaintances with whom I am cordial and friendly but not really friends. It works for me and for them. It doesn't matter how many friends you have, but it does matter if they are true friends or not. We should each do what is right and best for us no matter what anyone else thinks or wants.

I would much rather have a few close friends then a bunch of acquaintances. Now I have both....I have many lake friends, bar friends and neighbor friends who I associate with but when it comes down to the people who actually hold a special place in my life well this would be a select few.

I like my friends close, kind of liek when humans hide in a closet, the closness makes you feel more sure that you are safe and you can see anything comming

i have about three good friends and one best friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance of varying importance to me. I mostly like everyone, so it is not a dishonor to be an acquaintance. rek

I would rather have a few close friends. Loyality is high on my list. I give 100% to my friends and I expect them to do so in return. If you have only one True friend you are truly a blessed person. Most important thing is that they are true.

Definitely the close friend!!!! There no contest on that issue!!!! It's not weird, it's smart. Not only that it's a true reflection of your character to have a few very close and good friends rather than dozens of not so close friends!

A few close friends. I consider myself lucky in that I have more really close friends than I think I deserve.

Would rather have a few close friends and keep them. You can have a large number of friends, but probably only a few-if that-would be the truest type of friend. Those are the ones you try to keep for years on end.
