It's okay to have acquaintance friendships too though. They last a while then you part ways, which isn't always the greatest thing, but it's a part of life and I think there's a place for both levels of friendship.
I also think it's important to be by yourself once in a while without friends around. It's during these times that you can befriend yourself and hone insights around self clarity. Having said that, I don't think anyone should be alone for too long. We need friends. Solitude heals, loneliness kills. Peace and roll strong.
