A couple of good friends is all a person really needs. My son is a Scorpio - and I have to say, I'm loving life with a Scorpio. He's a sensitive, pleasure seeking, schemer, with a curious mind and an enormous capacity for FUN. You Scorpios are the best.
I'd say you're right on. I know some people who just have one conversation with a person and then refer to them as friend. It's too high school and Facebookie in my opinion!
