5-15-50 Close Friends and Family


I just read this at and found it very relevant and appropriate and it hit a cord with me:

“…Professor Robin Dunbar from Oxford University, whose research delves deeply into the number of trusted relationships humans can maintain throughout life. We tend to have 5 best friends, 15 good friends, 50 close friends and family, and 150 total friends…”

The book is How many friends does one person need?

There is something to be said about this…
