    I don't label my friends. They don't label me. My friends are my friends.

    I didn't mean that to sound as harsh as it reads. My apologies.

    I have friends of all races.
    I don't know that ANYBODY has the exact same religious beliefs that I do.
    I have friends ranging in age from 25 to 75.
    I suspect one of my best friends is gay. I cannot confirm of deny having gay friends.
    More AND less educated than me.
    I find Jehova's witnesses and Mormons very unpleasant. I don't hang around any of them. I have a LOT of Buddhist friends, and I have a friend who's family identifies as Suffi Muslim.


    Again, my apologies for the original statement. I should have found a different way to say it.

    All of the above. But I don't have any friends better looking than me. It is not possible.

    I associate and am friendly with lots of people but only have two people I'd really call my friends (unless you include my wife but she's more than a friend). They are about my age, my race, my gender, hold similar beliefs as I do, are married and educated.

    I'm friendly, associate, and work with all the above, excepting Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, and Buddhists; I don't know any.
    I consider my co-workers of 15+ years in this group; they are a new-age atheist physicist and a Conservative Jewish physician... they're good people, they need Christ.
