"As we grow up, we realize it is less important to have lots of friends and more important to have real ones."I was never the popular kid in school, and even now I don't have a lot of friends, but the ones that I do have, I treasure. I see it as a quality over quantity thing in that I don't have time or patience to maintain large numbers of relatively shallow relationships. I'd rather have a smaller number of connections that really matter.
After all, it isn't a game, and I don't feel an overwhelming need to impress anyone. And when push comes to shove, the folks who really matter always seem to find a way to be there. Everyone else? Immaterial.
Your turn: Thoughts?
One more thing: Hat tip to my wife for finding this one. FWIW, she's my best friend. Hands down. No one else even comes close.
