I would say 90% of people I come across on IF are acquaintances.

 

Dunbar's number says humans can have roughly only 150 stable relationships and roughly only five meaningful friendships. If people have more " either they are deluding themselves or they are spreading themselves thin to breaking point. No wonder everyone melts down on social media eventually.


I was only teasing Mister K. Friendship is a relative term, especially on an online forum. 

150 stable relationships? Hmmm, that's a lot! And I think five meaningful friendships is a good number. Social media friendship lists are meaningless. I don't talk to more than half the people that I'm "friends" with on Facebook anymore. Deleting them is tedious and unnecessary, so they stay. 


150 stable relationships isn't a stretch. It is just a number of classmates, coworkers, teachers, mentors, relatives, and close acquaintances we communicate with on a fairly regular basis and have friendly terms with. It is supposed to range between 100-250 but averages around 150.

 

Turns out I'm not abnormal when I say there are just a few people I actually count as genuine friends. It's the ones who claim to have a million friends who are abnormal.

 

I think the disconnect tends to arise when one person views the relationship as acquaintances or just a stable relationship while another thinks of it as genuine friendship. I think the younger we are, the more of the "best friends forever" rose tinted glasses we wear.

New chat thread.. awesome. New beginnings.. I doubt. DM has become too boring and predictable. Could you please spice it up, talk about something interesting. Interesting = Christian Bale, Richard Armitage etc are acceptable LOL
I will try to pop in once in a while .. as long as I see fun topics and don't see any hypocrites around.. Tongue i.e. if anyone wants me here Cry One month I stayed away, and I already feel like an outsider! Ouch

Who was the final cast?

Charlie Hunman and Dakota Johnson. 

I so wish this shades can go and burn in hell!

They released the names already?!
Don't know Hunnam, but such a major disappointment 'coz I was so rooting for Ryan Gosling or Channing Tatum!
