How many "real" friends do you have?

By real friends, I mean the ones you like, grew up with, talk to or see all the time, care about, enjoy being with, etc?
I have one...and starting to think of dropping her as well because I can't stand the way she acts and talks in front of my kids and she is very toxic! Only problem is she is my only friend! She's sweet, but a little "ghetto"!
Is it normal to have such few friends? Or none at all? Is it me?

  • One. Amber. We have been friends for 17 years, since high school. I trust her, I care about her, and she has never done me wrong.

  • You sound like me... Too funny considering that facebook to me is fakebook with the phoniest fake friends ever. Your real friends are the ones in person. I have one or two and the rest just waste my time that I need to get things done quick and easy without the bs vents .

  • I have ONE friend I can tell anything to and I know she will understand or at least be empathetic....and vise versa....
    I have a handful of friends that are good company, but can't get too close to because I don't trust them.

  • hmmm...if all that includes real friends, then just one (my DH), I live pretty far away from most of my best friends from high school, but we do still keep in touch, we just don't hang out very much.

  • None right now. When we moved gas was around $4.00 a gallon so we couldn't travel back there as much as we wanted and I eventually lost contact with the two friends I had left from before my kids were born. I'm trying to make real life friends but it's not easy where we are. All my friends are online.
