Would you have lots of friends?

Today I’m going to talk about how many friends I would have. Currently I don’t have very many; no more than 10. How many would I have if I had a choice?

The only reason I guess you would have one friend is if the friend were a really great friend. If they weren’t, then you would practically be friendless, and no one wants that unless they want to be miserable…

A few friends is good. The good thing about a few friends is that you can keep track of them, and you don’t have to make 20 invitations to your birthday party (:P). If you don’t invite some of them, however, some will feel left out.
The bad thing is you don’t have many people to support you and stand up for you. :(

Lots of friends is good because you have more people to love and hug. If you have more friends, then the chance of being alone will go down.
The down part is like I said before, some may feel left out if you can bring a limited amount of friends to some place. That is quite a big deal.

So, what do you think is the best? I think a few friends is the best choice, but if you feel different, please comment and tell me what you think. Goodbye for now!

One thought on “Would you have lots of friends?”

  1. Jenna, I agree few friends is better than many. This is also consistent with the 80/20 principle (or Pareto Principle): even if you have many friends, most of the value in your friendships will come from only a few of them. So why bother spending too much time on those relationships that don’t add as much value to your life or the other person’s?
