Good point, Shmoo...

I guess the question should be if I am not fully committed to a circle of friends, can I truly make good friends out of them?

Yes you can. I struggle with the same questions at times, between my Indian friends and my non-Indian friends and I can honestly say that I have made some really good, long lasting friendships in both groups. Now, if we talk about my pre-MBA friends, they completely hate me because many times I choose to do MBA friend activities rather than hang out with them. THAT for me is the real problem.

it's an interesting question that i've asked myself too. i think the answer is yes. we meet many more people than we used to when we were young; and we develop many more interests and hobbies and dimensions in personality that it's impossible to expect a single group of friends to share them all.
e.g. i had fun skiing with you and willette et al and would prefer doing so with you guys than my drinking buddies who are still on the greens; though i would go to them when i cook/drink - i understand and respect that you don't appreciate homecookings. but i think we are still good friends as far as skiing is concerned, no?

Even in Boston, I had my central group of friends and then my mostly separate music friends. Here I have few non-GSB friends, but all the GSB ones aren't necessarily friendly with each other. Though I'm forcing them to be. See brunch today. :)
