The other day I read somewhere that your FB friends , irrespective of their number are not your real friends and I feel there is a ring of truth in it because we strictly adhere to the saying ‘you can choose your friends but not your relatives’ and send friend requests to a select few and expect them to accept your friendship. It is not always that they do because they too might exercise their choice of selection and rejection.
According to me real friends are those who have you in their thoughts and irrespective of how busy they are, make time to contact you either by phone or mail once in a while atleast. Also telepathy works with real friends and I feel who ever is close to you as well,(read relatives) as you find them calling or even visiting you (if they happen to live in the same city) especially when you are out of sorts and need a comforting word to lift your spirits.
