 Really. 

 What kind of people to you surround yourself with? Sure, some will say, only good people. But, really, I've surrounded myself before with toxic people. But I'd like to think that I learned from experience. Now, my friends are people I respect and have loyalty to.

 No judgement, but, how about your circle? What's it like?

I got rid of the Toxic assholes a long time ago

Now I have my kids and grandkids. I have a few aquaintances and 1 person I am dating. I stick mostly with my family

 Would it be rude of me to ask the circumstances?

A very long time ago (iin my late 20s), I learned that I dont' need, want or even like toxic people.   I deleted them from my life.  These may not necessarily be 'bad' people, but are typically emotional vampires who can't be happy for themselves or anyone or who need constant attention/affirmation.  

My circle now is very small and I have solid women friends that I are funny, a bit weird and smart. They all typicaly have a more relaxed approach to parenting too.

I learned some hard lessons with friendships in the past. Now I only have a select few I call friends. I mostly interact with family.

My circle of friends is very small. I do not associate with any of my family and my dh doesn't associate with any of his because they flipped out over my family being Atheists.

 I agree. I didn't "establish" my circle until I was older. I still have a couple friends from HS and college. But my true friends are friends I made after many experiences, good and bad.

I'm a horrible friend, so I don't really have any. I've tried! It always goes down the same path. They want to talk, spew out all of their problems, tell me about their sex life, or lack thereof. Women just never shut up! I always gravitate to men.
