“I don’t have a big social circle.
I don’t have a circle at all.
I have what us semi-awkward introverts lovingly call ‘a triangle.’
And in that triangle there’s me, and then there’s my two other personalities.
But I kid you not, it’s that kind of humor right there which is exactly why my social circle is nonexistent.
But for reals, I have a triangle.
It’s me and my two ride or dies.
And sometimes I have a square or a pentagon, but I kinda max out there ‘cause five is a good number and I ain’t good at math, and also because circles are enclosing and confining, and this wanna-be bad B just doesn’t like being held hostage.
Held hostage to commitments, play dates, couple dates, GNOs, group vacays, and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad group texting threads.
I don’t like pressure.
And pressure is what you can feel when you have a larger group of friends.
So I keep mine small, and that works for me.
I’m okay having two to five ladies I can call on for anything and everything instead of seven or ten.
Because between two and five is about the amount of people, outside my family of five, I can handle being there for.
And that’s just me being honest, and realistic, and wearing my friendship-restricting known flaws because THEY. ARE. COMFORTABLE.
Just like the friendships I keep.”
