The terribly near-incestuous habit or tendency of a tight-knit group of mixed gender friends to date and sleep with one another at various turns in different permutations over a given span of time, often from high school and well into their early adulthood years. Extra messed up if there are siblings in this circle.

This is most prevalent with individuals who are unwilling or unable to make expansions to their social circles due to geographic constraints or cultural isolation (e.g. Orange Country, California) or psychological hesitance to escape the known and the familiar.

Only known remedy to this provincialism is to transplant oneself to New York, London or any other major metropolitan meat market.
Susan left Howard for Dave after they broke up, but Howard picked up Ana when she piqued his interest after she and Jason started agreeing to see other people. Both Dave and Jason are now competing for their long time friend Christie's attention, who in turn as been looking to rekindle passions with ex-boyfriend Howard. Howard and Dave are both secretly cheating on their current girl friends with Christie's slightly older sister, Clare, who has just recently entered this Circle of Friends

They're all going to the same college together next fall.

A group of good-natured easy-going peeps who are super-comfy with you, and thus are willing to occasionally indulge you by forming a ring --- either sitting or standing --- and smilingly holding out their hands so that you can gleefully waltz around the circle and "trade off" pairs of hands, grasping the "inside" left&right hands of two friends in a joyful warmly-squeezey "double-handshake" clasp, then releasing one friend's left hand, crossing your wrists while still maintaining your grasp on the other friend's right hand, taking a half-step to your right so that you're standing directly in front of this other person, grasping his left hand in yours and giving both his hands a couple grateful misty-eyed squeeziz, dropping his right hand and bringing yours back across again, taking another half-step to the right to bring you halfway between the "present" person and the next one, taking this next person's right hand in yours, and so on.
Anytime I feel down or lonesome, I just head over to the town square, and usually there will be a giggle of at least four or five pretty girls hanging out together on the benches, and so I can play a warm-hearted round of "circle of friends" with them --- nuthin' like a whole bunch of soft warm slender hands to cheer a nice guy up! Plus of course if it's a sunny balmy afternoon in the summertime, the chicks will usually all be either barefoot or wearing sandals, and so that's a delightful "footrub-fiesta" bonus, since it provides me with lots of cute toes and arches to delightedly flex and twiddle, as well.
