when I was young ,I live lonely and I didn't have a friend.I didn't need a friend because I have lots of toys and my little dog can play with me.but when I grow up, I find I am eager to have a friend and I feel lonely and fear when I stay alone at home.I just want to have a talk with someone. why we need a friend? have you ever thought of that? we need a friend to double our happiness. we need a friend to reduce our pains. we need a friend to tell us right from wrong. we need a friend to talk our secret to them. we need a friend to comfort us when we badly hurt. we indeed need a friend ,but the reason above are not all.I wonder what's your reason to need a friend? expect your ideas!thanks you.

There are times when I have needed a friend to talk to when things were not going well and also to share joy with... to create with... to hug... to listen to and learn from... to enjoy times together... to go places together... to dream with... to sing with... to dance with... to eat with... to enjoy life with ... So many reasons... so many times to share.

what is friendship? I aks myself again and again. but when I really enjoy my friends' talks and worries,etc. I stop asking myself,cause I know I will never know the answers why we need a friend and what is friendship. I only know I have it and i AM HAPPY. maybe sometimes,we don't need to know why and what and how. just let it be.

We are social beings and even if at times we go through phases of lonliness, we still need companionship. We need to share our joys, sorrows, major events with others. Sometimes we cannot just face things alone. We need others to help us make our journeys easier because life is tough as we know it. Friends who can be there with us will make things easier and we can do the same for them. So yes having friends is necessary for our well being.

you answerd your own question. Every body got to have your friend. It's impossible for some one that they dont have a friend excpet if they are on a island by themselve. Friends are like your siblings. They make life better and excited. They make you do stuff that you never thought of doing. It's easy to befriend somebody.

THE SAYING SAYS "NO MAN IS AN ISLAND" THIS SIMPLY MEANS WE ARE NOT DESIGNED TO LIVE ALONE IN OUR WHOLE LIFE. OF THEM IS OUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS. FRIENDS IS DIFFERENT FROM YOUR FAMILY, SOMETIMES WE CONSIDERED THEM AS OUR EXTENDED FAMILY. SOME FRIENDS IS LIKE YOUR CLOSE FAMILY. I REMEMBER A PHRASE ABOUT FRIENDS THAT SAYS: FRIENDS ARE THE REASON WHY EVEN AT THE SADDEST PART OF OUR LIFE, WE SMILE. WHY EVEN IN OUR CONFUSION, WE UNDERSTAND. WHY EVEN IN BETRAYAL, WE TRUST. WHY EVEN IN FEAR OF PAIN, WE LOVE. THANKS FOR BEING ONE!

There are things that our family can't give or do for us and they are not alway with us especially when we are in outdoors.So, friends are there to give or do what our family can't. And most of our problems is about family,right? Without our friends, who we can turn to? We can consider friend as our second family, that's why we need a friend.

Why we need friend? Hmmm...This is the first time I encounter this question since most of the time people were asking what is friend or friendship. Honestly, I never thought of answering this question until I read your post. Why I need friend? I need friend because they will keep me company. Friend will always be there for me in my ups and downs. They will be the one whom I can share my experiences aside from my family and relatives. I need them to keep me sane when I have no one to talk to and when no on is around.I need them because they've always been part of my life. And I can't imagine myself without any friend. You know, the saying no man is an island its really true.

A friendis ur companion toward your journey in life....you can have lots of friends but you know what....only few are considered true friends who would listen and be there at your side when you need someone and when all the people turn their backs from you..... Actually, I can say I need a friend primarily because they serves as my refuge when im happy..lonely...angry...and when I feel unaccepted by other people.....I can say that my friends are true friends because through the years we have been together, they did not leave me nor betrayed me...they are still there that even we are not talking often or being together always...we know to each other that we are friends....and will always be friends..

We need friends because without them, we would be very lonely. Friends keep us grounded and they are there for us. I was loner too in middle school and high school, but I still managed to have some friends. Enough to remind me that I had people and things to live for.
