As I examine the people I've met, it seems like the majority of them focus on quantity (making many friends/acquaintances) without investing a lot of time and energy into most of them (seeing them less frequently, not bending over backwards to help them, etc...)

I prefer to have fewer friends, but for them to be of higher quality, meaning that I'm happy to invest more time and energy into helping them out, knowing that I can count on them in the future, if needed. As the years go on, I'm starting to feel like I'm in a dwindling minority.


Do you prefer to have more friends, but see them less often OR have fewer friends but see them more often?
