When I was younger, I can be considered a sociable person with connections in almost everywhere I had been like school, former place of residence, former office and even in the residences of my friends. I was not really collecting friends but I was active and perhaps I enjoyed it. But as I grew older, I realized that most of those friends are for social occasions only and worse, some are just free-loaders or opportunists. So now, I am confined to a few friends which I consider real friends. That made my social life very limited and I enjoy it more because my time is almost devoted to my family.
