NO man is an Island. Friendship is a relationship between two or more person. These people are bound with trust and depth feeling with each other. Most of us has a lot of friend in different side. Some people have different friends in the morning, at noon and at night. Others have friends in different establishment. I wonder how people make friends. A lot of them have branches of friends. How they maintain their friendship? Are there friends from childhood? Is it really necessary to have friend? How can someone survive with their friends' attitude? Can you survive without friend?

no i cant.. i need a friend i can go out and hang out with. i need a friend whom i can talk to and who listens. i need a friend for a companion. life is lonely without a friend. ppl have different personalities. some of my friends are serious and some of them likes fooling around. some are crazy some responsible. but i accept them for who they are without judging.

Yes, people needs a friend to laugh with, to cry with and to be just beside with. And this remind me of a song that I really really like. "And even though I make mistakes and never do anything right; A smile a hug, can change all that and everything will be allright. Someone who'll share all my dreams and ambitions; Someone who'll love me as me. I need this person. Someone to rely on; A friend that's all I need. Regards to you and to all!

I remember when I had times that I don't have real friend. I tried to count my siblings as my friend but too late they are taken with their own friends. I was alone unhappy and crying within me. I can feel the emptiness - the cold feeling. I consider those experienced happen for a reason because I meet my partner for life :). Currently, I'm happy as I can be with him :); although, I still made a real friend and still love her the way I love my former friends.

There is always something fun to do, even when you do not have any friends. Walk the mall and check out the movie that's playing at the mall cinema and see if its a movie worth seeing.

I agree, but sometimes you need a person to ask what they think of the movie, the clothes you found at the mall or the accesories. I found it hard to be at the mall alone though but I seen people being therself at that place. Regards!

Good day to you MeNme1, With reference to your main topic - with or without friend - I would rather choose "with friend". However, sometimes, its not worthy to have too many friends if you dont know who are your true friends. And for me, there are many types of friends, and one of these is an acquiantance friend. For me, I cannot survive without a friend. And I cannot live without that. However, its fine with me to have at least one, wherein, I am a 100 percent sure that he or she is a faithful friend who will stay to me thru thick & thin rather than to have a lot wherein, I am not that sure if they are really my true friends. To recap, it is better to have at least one rather to have a hundred wherein you are not sure if they can be with you thru thick & thin.

You've got a point. True friend can be measure times of trouble. Same here, I consider some of my friend as an acquiantance because we really don't exchange deep feeling to each other.

Friends make life interesting. I do not know someone who has no friend, not even one. It is good to have someone to share your deepest feelings and thoughts. As it is written in proverbs that two can accomplish more than twice as one... if the one falls, the other can reach out and help. I keep those reliable friends and treasure them

Correct! But I think that proverbs is same as "Two heads is better than one". Sharing deepest feelings and thoughts (hmmmmm!), forgive me! There are persons who are secretive and don't want to bother anyone to tell their thoughts and feelings. They are just trying to be considerate. They keep in mind that people have their own thoughts and feelings also and sometimes are dealing with huge amount of problem that their friend did not know. Regards!

Yes thats true.. No man is an island. everyone of us need a friend that help us when the time we need them..They are the one who comfort us everytime we need their comfort. Some are the one who inspire us and become more than friends. Friend is a treasure that cannot be converted as money. its a valuable that cannot be compare to anything else.

Right, if that friend is a true friend. Don't get me wrong, I don't oppose on what you said.

Family can be a source of companionship and they're the first in the list that you think of if there's problem or hardships. I can say I'll survive without a friend but I don't think there will be any enjoyment or meaning in my life if I have no friend to share my days of happiness or sorrow if I don't have my friends. If my friend's attitude is really intolerable not only to me and to others ,I'll try and tell her about it in a nice way, but if I'm only the one who's bothered by it, I guess I'll just try to accept it. Maybe if it's really too much , I'll also confront her about it.

There is truth in what you said. I only have few friends, these are the most I can trust and love. It's not that I'm picky. I'm just a kind of person that is very devoted to one person. I love to make that person and happy so I make sure that person is worth having my affection and devotion as a friend. After all, what is friendship without feelings, devotion, happiness with them and trust.

Hello! I cannot survive without a friend because just like what you said, no man is an island and i believe that there's something in your life that you can't tell even to your closest family members but you can tell directly to your trusted friend. Friends for me can be considered as a very strong support system because there's no human in this world didn't encounter problems. In this very moment, its easier to face them when you know that some one is there to help or at least lessen the pain you are feeling, and that is your true friend. For me, its not important how many friends you got but how deep your friendship with your friend was. Good night!

I agree, there are things that you cannot share even to your closest family members. My siblings don't share their things to me either but they are rather spend their time with their friends even though I'm home always.

Friendship is something that is not to make between each other... some people thinking that making more friends is important than anything, but i don't think so.. we need friendship... but there must be some limitations in number... i don't have any friend from the childhood.. We can survive with out friends.... but we need some good friends... other wise our life will become meaningless.......
