I just wanna know if it’s weird that I only have 2 people I’d actually consider solid friends, one online one irl. I usually don’t have that many friends at any given time. I feel like if those relationships fall apart my emotional state will plummet

3 technically.
1 online friend that i met on another "forum", but she has her life so we just check up on each other every couple weeks.
an irl friend that i use to go out with before the pandemic, but then that and MAJOR anxiety. i havent talked to her in a couple years, just talked to her again the other week. it was only the one time though.
and my ex that is now more like my big brother. but thats the guy im talking about when i say i only get 1-3 messages and we dont see each other irl. havent for about 7yrs.
i have friends, but no one to talk to so i might as well not have friends. the emotional connection is nice but the loneliness still burrows

I consider everyone here on SS as a friend, and with that aspect said I have zero friends or family besides the folks here.

In the past I have had people who wanted to be "friends" with me, and I quickly figured out that they wanted something from me and when I said no, they dumped me very fast.

I have no friends sadly...there are 2/3 people i chat online once in a while but they are cold texts...far from someone that truly cares about you,someone you can really call Friend.
Even tho i care a lot about these persons and bring them in my thoughts and heart,I am not reciprocated by them, in fact I think I have been used sometimes

While I'm outwardly friendly and generally a people pleaser, there are 0 people in my life who are close friends. I like it this way. I don't trust people at all and would rather have several acquaintances than anyone get close enough to call a friend.

I get where you all are coming from. For a lot of my life I’ve had no friends. It seems like I just got lucky with these two

It's easier for me to maintain online friendships than real ones. My real ones feel more like acquaintances. I can never really distance myself from the fact that an online friendship isn't as "real" as the IRL one, not as legitimate.

i have friends irl, perhaps i have to treasure them more than i do. unfortunately their presence doesn’t make it any easier for my mental health.

I have enough friends these days, but it makes no difference. I'm an agoraphobic pariah and NEET. I have a history of displaying antisocial behaviors, and never believed in myself, ever. To think that there are people who think I'm very intelligent and beautiful. Pfft! I can't even be in a healthy romantic relationship because of commitmentphobia and my recently-discovered erotophobia. I've dated plenty, though.

Fuck my life. I let myself go, anyway. Am fat. I'll tell myself I lack the guts to get sloshed, once and for all, and throw myself off a bridge.

Two with whom I talk to occasionally. None with whom I can talk about how I really feels

Lots of "friends", two good friends, one good friend if you only count irl and not online

I've never met a person I felt comfortable enough with, to confide in. I'm not sure what a proper friendship should even look like.

The connections I have with people now, are all mostly surface level. Last time I felt like I had friends was probably middle school.

i am not sure. i think i lost all. i loose more and more the ability to communicate or to interact with other people. i don't want to harm anybody but it seems that this is exactly what i do to people. a slow and painful decline of my life......

I don't have any but I don't consider it a negative or anything, anyone I've crossed paths with I've usually kept as an acquaintance, like most people on here.

At the same time I'd rather be alone than be with/build a relationship with someone where I consistently have to adjust myself or my standards of communication to meet their level so idk, in general ive always liked my own company. having time to myself is usually something I appreciate and regard highly, I'm usually the kind of person who respects having the time and space with myself but I had that violated lol. I would always take a relationship that's built on being in alignment with each other and knowing where one another stands over one that feels more of a burden. for that reason most of my friendships have usually been surface level.
