@op YES that is exactly me too.
friends: uhhh like upwards of 300, and i don't just mean facebook friends i've met once in my life
close friends: 10ish
really close friends, like can call you in the middle of the night in the middle of a crisis and you won't say i owe you one: 2
in my younger years (aka high school) i threw a summer party where i invited 100 people and expected about 60 to show. 13 showed. i was mortified back then (not to mention i wasted a ton of money on party supplies) but now i realize it's kind of just the way facebook events work - you click "yes" and then forget about it or something else comes up but enough people have RSVP'd yes or maybe that you don't really think much of it. except everyone does that, minus the people who actually care enough about you personally to put other things aside. i had tons of people tell me afterwards, man, i really wanted to come to your party, but _____ happened and i just couldn't make it! also i did not include alcohol in the description. that was a mistake.
don't worry though, i perfected the technique in college. throw an event for 50 and have 250 show which is why college rocks.
yeah i don't really get that. i'd be revving up my social circle engagement like crazy.Originally Posted by Tigerlily
