I only have a few close friends, and therefore only a few real friends in general. I've got plenty of acquaintances, but I only call someone a friend when we regularly hang out outside of work or school.

And no, I don't pity those with few friends. If you have absolutely no friends at all then that may warrant some concern.

This may just be my personal opinion & not shared by you, however I think some (not all) anime & manga fans look for more out of friendship then your average every day individual, as I feel anime & manga in a way kind of teaches caring for your friends & taking consideration for there feelings etc.

"If you want to understand someone, know what makes them angry" - Gon Freecs

I'm finding it a little difficult to word well, however what I mean is, I think anime with it's philosophical & nostalgic feel, makes the viewer appreciate true friends more so & maybe makes them desire a friendship like they've seen in real life. A Hide to their Kaneki, A Vegeta to their Goku, A Killua to their Gon, etc.

I have yet to meet someone who shares a love of anime, who is cruel or insensitive etc. That's not me saying they aren't out there, but from my experiences they tend to be a little more.. considerate & kind maybe.

==========================================================

I have very few friends really because I feel I do the same in which I look for loyal friends, and hold them to a.. I wouldn't say a really high standard but definitely not what the average male considers a friend. I've always found the majority of male friendships to be quite saddening in how shallow a lot of them tend to be, since they're very rarely made over emotions etc as many of female relationships are but instead solely formed over going to the same job, mutual acquaintances and so on and are quite easily left at that. I had someone I believed I had befriended or at-least near so but he always felt the need to clarify me & one or two others from college as a 'college friend' or 'college mate'


My girlfriend is probably my best friend tbh & one of my only few, other people I have managed to befriend I have lost contact with them due to lack of interest from one or both sides, I have a couple who occasionally contact me however I strongly feel the one or two who still do are the kind who use others and strongly give of that vibe so I'm in the kind of mindset I'd rather just be happy with my family & girlfriend over being friends with people like that..

You know I have no idea what a friend is to be honest. I do not think I have ever known. I have always been a bit screwed up when it came to human interaction. These days I do not really give a damn about having other people in my life. My current 2 friends have screwed me up pretty good. One of my friends latched onto me after he broke up with a girlfriend and was rather intrusive in my life. Which was nice, we did some interesting things, but at the same time it was annoying. Then he started dating a new female and I ceased to exist until he was living with her. Then I was a nice escape from her, I guess. My other friend, at the time, seemed only interested in me for a roommate. After college we hardly spoke until he needed a place to stay. Then after we decided that him crashing on my couch was not working for either of us he left and we hardly spoke again until he moved back again and needed a new roommate. However, things have gotten better so it is hard to say.

I guess you can say that I just do not like people. I am pretty sure that was conditioned into me from my childhood. I am just REALLY good at entertaining myself. I also do not like having to deal with other people's drama up close. So human relationships are... pretty benign to me. I never assume that anyone wants to be friends or anything else with me. They are just conversing with me because they feel awkward or because they need something. Otherwise said individual would not bother seeing me much less speaking to me. As a result no one seems to give a crap that I exist.

I have known a few people over time, but since I do not actively go around seeking those peoples' attention as the new guy I am quickly forgotten or relegated to being an acquaintance. I do not put in the effort to get to know them so they do the same. Not that I really care to be honest. I enjoy this quiet life where my only obligation is to myself and no one else.

A friend is someone you can trust and someone you enjoy being around. Like many other people have mentioned, a friend should be someone you can rely on. I'm not sure if I have many friends, but that's something that I hope to discover more of in the future.
