In this world, we always look for friend. Can anyone sustain without friend? What is the need of a friend? Despite having a family, what is the need of having friend? Human beings are, no doubt, cannot remain without a society. Does it mean that he has to have friend even while living in that society? Thank you.

A true friends is someone who reachs your hands when you have troubles.If we have three or more good friends in our life. we will don't lose heart to our life.Because you can talk to them your troubles and they will help us to settle it.

You brought out another good point. That is, friend is someone whom you expect to be beside you during your needs.

Your points are accepted unconditionally. This question raised within me as because we are social beings. Being already social, do we really need to have friend? Yes, sharing views, joys, agony and also laugh we need someone to participate with us. Isn't it the main reason to have friend?

In this world, u need to have a friend. Not so healthy just by yrself. U can confide with him, joke with him and also share yr personal feelings with him. Friends are just like your brother , only thing is that u dun stay together.

We all know human being is a social animal. It is our need to socialize. Socialization doesn't mean just to chat with someone. People like to talk to the person with they can enjoy. And it is the friend with whom we like to sit, we enjoy. And we also need to support of the friends in bad time. Yes family members are there to support but having an extra support is not bad. After all it's going to help.

People dont NEED to have friends BUT they DO need to interact with others on some level IMO.. what do I look for in a friend? Kindness, compassion, a sense of humour, openmindedness to some degree at least...Basically my potential friends just need to be good ppl ya know..

This point is very important. Interaction. There are certain types of interactions, which can be done with friends only. No family member, no relative, no neighbour have access to those. Thank you.

Are you seriously asking why people like having friends? Or are you just asking as to start a discussion? Why would we NOT want people to associate with? Whether its hourly, daily or from time to time. Someone to laugh with, cry with, joke with, make memories with, someone to lean on and to be there if they need leaning as well. I'll admit, I don't have many friends. Im a friendly person by all means, I get along with freaking anyone... but my few close girls and guys are my family. Aside from my husband, they are my rock. Just because you have family doesn't mean you always get along or they can always be there for you in ways that they need them. If I'm down and out... I'm screwed if I don't have friends close by! I'm 3+ hours away from my mom... or any other family member for that much. I think friendship is a very natural thing... it takes work and compromise sometimes just like any other relationship, but its part of life's many joys.

Friends are required, i admit. I also have friends. But sometimes i thought on this topic, why do i have friend? I share everything with my wife. So is there any real necessity of having friends? Now a days, the massive usage of net, changed the dimension of friendship. Whom i really do not know much, i do share my feelings with him by social networking sites, i make jokes through net, he sends me texts ha ha ha. With the developement of webworld the typical definition of frieds is replaced by net friends. Have you not got anybody so far, who remains aloof from everybody? i saw some persons like this. Seeing them also i thought, how do they run without friends? Thanks for sharing your views.
