How many TRUE friends do you have?

I've often heard growing up that you're lucky if you can count your true friends on one hand.
I'm finding this to be so true.

  • None. Unless I can count my mom.

  • Absolutely, I'd rather have a few good friends then a million so called friends.
    I have 5. 3 I've know most of my life and 2 new additions in the past few years.

  • I'm going to say 6.

  • Yeah. There are friends I never see but COULD call and they would come running in a jam (and I would do the same). Close friends I talk to regularly? Two. Others I hold dear to my heart but don't see cause we're too far apart are about 5. Could be missing some...

  • One who has been my friend since high school. Two who have been in my life for the past several years. All of them have their faults, and I have mine, but we'd be there for each other without question.

    Oh, and ex friend one I had for twenty years who turned on me like bad cheese when I got pregnant unexpectedly and she didn't like the way I was living my life. I still count her as a used-to-be friend, even though we'll probably never speak again because she tried to ruin my family and I could never trust her. We were friends for twenty years and pulled each other through all kinds of hard times, and even though the relationship failed, I feel like I have to count her on my short list because she was one of the best friends I ever had in my adult life till the deal breaker happened. Maybe I'm messed up, but I sometimes really sill miss her.

  • I've only 2 TRUE friends, one is my DH and first one is my friend Aneela. Our friendship is since 1980 when we were in school.

    Answer by Dardenella at 2:03 AM on Apr. 5, 2013

  • Outside of family, I have no one I could call a friend. I am close with my sister, and I talk with her regularly. I could count on her to help me if I needed her.
