I don't have many friends - September 24th 2012, 11:41 PM

I have one close/best friend :/ He's the only person I really hang around with a lot. I have other friends but I only really hang around them with my best friend. I don't go out a lot because of this.

I can't decide if I'm happy with this or not. I like staying in but I also wish I had other people to talk to and be around. I'm quite close with my sister but it's not really the same.

It's just my best friend was talking about moving to England in a few years (once he gets a stable job) I'd be buggered :/ If he moved away I would barely see anyone.

I just don't really get along with many people around here :/ Too many people who live in my village are ignorant and racist.

Is it a problem that I don't have many friends?

It's only a problem if you're unhappy. if you're okay with only having a few friends, great. not everyone needs to be surrounded by a big crowd all the time. however, you shouldn't let your happiness revolve around one person. that's unhealthy and can end up hurting you, like if your friend really did decide to move away. try and reach out to other friends, find a new hobby or something to do where you can meet people. you'll still have your best fiend but its definitely important to have friendships outside of your best friend.

I do worry about that. When my old best friend moved to New Zealand I was quite depressed.

I just have somewhat unhealthy relationships with friends. I'm either really, really close to them or not at all.

Friendship is definitely great and one should attach importance to friendship. But, once you run out of friendship and feel lonely. For that matter, it is true of all relations. You need not be too particular about any particular relations. An attachment to any person is going to give your unhappiness and disappointment.
