How many friends do you have?

I have one friend and a few acquaintances. I don't like the drama that comes with a lot of friends. My friends always seem to come with issues and I don't know how to get new ones. One woman 33, wants me to lie for her to her husband, another 45 lies all the time and makes trouble between everyone, one 17, is funny but high school drama. I just want a normal healthy friendship. I have nobody my own age 24. I am full time in college but everyone is so wrapped up in parties that its hard to make friends. Any tips on making new friends?

  • I have three real friends; I value them more than anything (except my spouse (my best friend) and my daughter).

  • I'll be your friend! =)

    I hate drama and stupid bitches. I dropped almost all of my friends because they cause too many problems. So I have only a couple left.

  • do things that you would prob have things in common with people. Like making friends at a yoga or gym class, rock climbing, anything that you like and do I'm sure you can find a friend good luck!!

  • I meet most of my friends through common interests. I joined a book club, joined a group that follows my favorite baseball team, etc. I have a pretty large network of actual, true friends these days. Some are still left over from high school and college, but most are through those social activities and through work.

  • I also have only 3 or 4 true friends and a bad thing is they are all in different states! They are all here for me with just a click or a phonecall away. I have been through a cycle of thinking people were my friends and they stabbed me in the back,

    Does anyone understand that, the passive aggressive types?

    And why we are grown ups. I cant see hurting some one on purpose!

    I dont have the tip on making new but maybe something is said for a few true friends!
