    Default How many close friends do you have?

    I have been noticing a trend recently on the hub about issues with friends and keeping friendships going which got me thinking about how many close friends I have.
    I have 1 friend who is like a sister to me and 5 other close friends, with a number of other friends I see regularly. One of the close friends is a new friend and the others I have known for years.

    How many close friends do you have?

    Hard to say

    Haha not really.

    If I'm honest, I have one IRL friend who I consider quite close. RL Because we catch up at least once a week. (Which reminds me, I need to reply to her text, I'm not ignoring you!!)
    Then I have a handful of lovely ladies online which I also consider really close.

    A big fat zero. I have friends/acquaintances but no close friends. I did have someone I considered to be my best friend and thought nothing could come between us. That is, until I left my husband and she sided with him, even going so far as to write a stat dec full of twisted half truths for court to support him.

    You might say I have some 'minor' trust issues now.

    I have friends, just no friends like my childhood besties. It's the biggest void in my life and makes me feel so lonely even when surrounded by people.

    I have 3 friends who I would say I'm quite close to.

    Unfortunately 2 of them I infrequently see and the other I see weekly but it's always for 'Mummy' things.

    I can't say that I would class any if them as best friends or women I have sisterly like bond with, but I am comfortable with them and can confide in them.

    I have 3 best friends which I've had for 15 years + and another 8 girls from school I see a min of once a month. A couple of years ago the 11 of us did a photo shoot and the pics were amazing. I have one on a canvas hanging up in my dining room.

    Then I have 4 close work friends from my previous job and 6 volleyball friends I see weekly but I'm seeing them this sat.

    Friendship is hardworking though, you've got to make the effort like any relationship. I'm hoping we'll keep these friends forever

    None. I thought I had a couple but since having a baby and moving away I hardly ever hear from anyone, am trying to meet new people in my new area but it's a bit hard to get out socializing with a LO. Mums groups good but in a small country area where your the " new kid" it's a bit weird
