    How would anyone of you people define a friendship?

    1)Do you define it as a person who knows about you more than others do?

    2)Do you define it as a person whom you trust the most?

    3)Do you define it as a person whom you could depend on?

    Simply, no.

    There are some people who think I do have, as I do spend some time with my friends every now and then, and there seems to be enough company for me at all times.

    They've neglected to see how many friends other people have. Those who really live for many friends and not much else, those people have just that what they live for: an abundance of friends. Logical, yes?

    No, I have 2 very close friends and a few close but yet far friends. I find juggling too many friendships quite stressing.

    In my life I've never had more than 2 close friends at a time, people I consider family and love dearly enough to commit to them in that way.

    If the friendship has depth it's a friendship, if I try to share that depth with too many people it eventually makes me cut everyone out of my life due to the stress of it all.

    In order: 2, 3, 1 for me. 2 needs to come first before I would even think of depending on them, and before I could reveal all of myself.

    Yeah, people come and go and I don't mind so much, but I've always been a few friends or one friend kind of person, and they're ones that stick.

    For me it's: 2, 3, 1.

    In a true friendship, trust is the most important factor for me.
    It's nice to be able to depend on people but I usually don't.
    I don't think anyone (maybe my husband) knows more about me than I do.

    Scratch the husband part and I agree. And I don't think that even I know myself that well. Hm, still more than the rest of the world.

    my trust in friendships was destroyed in high school because i basically got bullied throughout high school but towards the end the only close friend i had who i had known since i was toddler decided to join in, before this i was a fairly balanced introvert with quite a few friends, i've kept everyone i know at a distance since then.
