  1. Seven. My wife and six friends from college I regularly talk to. I don’t talk to anyone from high school anymore or anyone from past jobs. Everyone else is family, co-workers, or just acquaintances I’m friendly with.

  2. None nor any female, had my daughter not a single one asked about her but wanted me to collect drugs for them back when I was a bit of a Hellion

    Cut them the right the fuck out

  3. Three or four but lots of transient friends who come and go due to work. The only people I know who have lots of close friends are people who still live in their home town and have friends they have known since high school.

  4. Genuine friends: around 15
    Close friends: 8

    I’m amongst the lucky people who were able to retain most of my schooldays-friendships and improve most of them during my (still running) 20s.

  5. My gf is my only friend. I have zero ideas how to make other friends. People tell me that I need to join a club or something but everytime I join something I am invisible. Even at work I am invisible. To find any other community is really hard, I’m running out of interests to meet people at this point. I feel like most people managed to have friends in a mysterious way I will never know about

  6. I’m not sure what you mean by true, genuine friends. But I have 2 or 3 that I feel like I could trust with just about anything. And 2 main friend groups I can mostly trust as well. But for a long time i used to have no close friends and just a superficial friend group that didn’t really care about me

  7. 7-10 that are actually close and genuine. Most of them don’t live close to me anymore but we’re solid even though we only see each other a few times a year.

    I’m 33.

  8. Close close friends? About 6 I’ve known since high school (4 are two pairs of brothers). These dudes know everything about me.

    Acquaintances? I’ve got more like 10-12, mostly are from work or like rec sports leagues. We hang out and shoot the shit but it’s not anything too deep.

  9. Friends that I can count for anything, I think I have 5 maybe, then I have 3 or 4 that are really close, and then something between 20 and 30 friends that are not that close but are still friends and people I care about

  10. I’m lucky enough to have 4 brothers for life. And I mean it. Obviously people can always surprise you but these guys have been here for years and will probably be for a long time

  11. One friend I’ve known for 20 years and would trust with anything any day. 3 friends that I know quite well and I’d describe as average friends. Then about 5 that may or may not actually show up for anything.
