Kind of funny...My teenage child told me they have 222 friends.
I replied "if you have car trouble today. Start calling those friends, when you get to my name I'll come get you..."

I'm pushing 40, but you'd never know it. I consider myself lucky to have a large circle of good friends and acquaintances of all ages. We don't all gather around at the same time, but we don't go very long without all running into each other at some point. Drama breaks out very rarely, but when it does everyone knows about it and everyone has their say about it. It keeps us honest. If we were closer geographically, i would invite you to hang out.
For older posters: Are you less active socially now?
Are you my critter from another knitter? You must be my long lost sibling. That was perfectly stated as to why I feel "coiled" when we're in crowds.
I've never been afraid of people, but I've constantly worried about what violent and unreasonable people might cause me to do. Violence means nothing to violent people, but thoughtful people fear the consequences of their own violence. I find that being solitary alleviates that fear.
