I would guess that most people prefer deeper friendships to shallow friendships. But how healthy, normal, accepted, right is it to prefer deeper friendships to no friendships? But then, how can you form deep friendships without first making and then cultivating shallow friendships?
Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you. Isaiah 60:1-2
