Interesting perspective on having lots of weak ties, but few deep ones.

I enjoyed the ending of this piece.

Proximity (both physical or virtual) can give the illusion of intimacy. If we’re not careful, we forget what it really means to give and receive true friendship and opt for just being friendly.

Maybe it’s time to be honest with ourselves about the quality of our relationships, to truly identify the real friends in our lives and invest deeply in them. After so many parties, trips, conferences and dinners, maybe it’s time to build aΒ trueΒ community, not just a network of endless connections that feeds our collective ego.
