    Make new friends, but keep the old; one is silver and the other gold.

    If you want my advice, if it were up to me, out of those 3 options, I'd move away (choice #2).

    How constructive are the relationships you have with your friends?

    Do you stand to lose any productivity by separating yourself from them?

    Is the only purpose to stay near them the comfort they provide you, or are these relationships genuinely unique and beneficial?
    wails from the crypt.

    They do provide comfort but it's also because of the unique individuals, they are playful despite knowing that most people would find them and their behaviour odd. Essentially I have found people that match my personality, especially the ESFP who is actively strange. Otherwise they all share the characteristics that would be found in an excellent friend.

    I don't lose productivity in terms of academic work. Just the idea that the friendship may not be the same ever again if I leave, and that I haven't had enough time to build a stable friendship.

    About 90% of my personal circle shifts every couple of years. I only have one really long lasting friendship. A couple of friends from high school that live quite far away. But most of my friends I've only known for two years or less.

    However, that's just the way how I work. It won't guarantee you happiness.

    If odd individuals are your thing - -college is where you will find even more of your peeps. I speak from experience. The bigger the institution and/or the more exclusive/challenging it is - the odds of finding strange mindmates will increase exponentially. Think of all the weird and wonderful people you could lose out on meeting if you stayed?
