    Simple answer really: No.

    Longer answer: I find it difficult to value and devote energy to the machinations that make casual friendships work. I get little stimulation from them, so I've only gathered a small amount of close friends who I really, really like over the years. And even then they find me distant. I've really always kind of been more of a "girlfriend guy" if that makes any sense.

    I have very few people that I call my friend. I find that I have more people that call me their friend.

    I have people that I know, everywhere I go, but there's noone close enough that I can distinctly call a friend, except for one person who I've known for years. I have a group of friends that I can see every now and again, whenever there's a party or a celebration, but I'm not close to any of them... they're all close. At school, I never really joined any groups of friends... the nerds were too nerdy, the cool people too cool.

    I have 3 friends that are close enough to me that they're family. When I talk about my friends, I'm usually talking about them.
    I have 4 very good friends who will probably be as close as the top 3 at some point.
    And then I have about 10 friends that are more like activity partners. We hang out when we get a chance, but we don't really share much depth.

    I live far away from all 3 of my closest friends, and close to only 2 of the 4 good friends. Sad...

    Is that a lot? I don't know. Compared to?

    I know a lot of people, but I wouldn't say I have a lot, or that I have a few friends.

    I use to have one good friend, but then it expanded to two good friends, then three, then four etc.

    And they are not just hanging out buddies, those are the friends I can call if I'm all down and out or whatever, and they do the same with me.

    Real friends.

    I have a hard time answering this.

    I have three real friends.

    Then I have "friends," who I hang out with, and can count on having a good time with. Then I have "friends" who I hang out with, but don't necessarily like more than anyone else. I'll hang out with just about anyone, but this doesn't mean I like them. By the way, I don't mean to say I don't like them- I'm just indifferent about them.

    And I have archenemies.

    Difficult one, Yes and No

    I go through phases, I always have a few close friends, but then I usually have a much wider social net work with much shallower relationships. I run two social networks, one of about 35 and one of about 20.... although to any event I'd expect a max of ten for either network, they are more aquantances...

    Right now all my best freinds have buggered off somewhere so I'm feeling a bit rudderless. Oh well just another life cycle....


    I wonder how long NT's keep friends for...
