    Your definition means I would have many "close friends" to choose from. My view of close friendships, means that I wouldn't be able to fill the position, let alone the other positions. Best man, is just as an example, which would first require being close to someone else.

    Close friends, I think needs better defining.
    I have few "close" friends never have had close friends. Really it all depended where I lived. Growing up in the north we had zero other than white at our public schools. 18 moving to San Antonio I was the only white girl waiting tables most the time, so for those couple years all my friends were of Mexican descent. Living in TN for a few years it was a very mixed area so all friends were of assorted races.

    Back in the north again, well it's just the area we live. I found all the people I have ever became friends with all shared the same interests or spot in life as I did.
