Friends is very important in our daily life. There is a famous Chinese phase known as "at house depend parent, go out depend on friends" !! However some people may think that friends is a groups of people that can be make use for your benefit for doing somethings. How far you agree about it? How sincere you take your friends are? please share with me about your opinion? Is it we can live without friends?

Sometimes I think online friends is better than the friends in real world because you can talk to them for everything. And they will never betray on you. Hope that I can become one of your online friends.

Obviously, your parents and family would be more important than your friends. However, there is always a friend who you trust as much as if he were a family member. In my opinion, if people didn't have any friends, they would be dull, boring, feel bad about themselves and upset, have no one to share their things with, no one to talk to and so on. However, this is not the case, because I'm sure everyone has at least one friend, whether it is another person, or an animal like a dog. I have lots of friends, however there are only 2 whome I absolutely trust and talk to them as if they were my brother/sister. No, I think, if we didn't have friends we wouldn't be able to live our lives because we will feel lost and bored.

I do agree with what you say !! but sometimes friends are very selfish and always think for themselves !! and even worst they always try to make use of you. But I strongly believe everybody cannot live without friends.

Friends means everthing----nothing you can do without relaying on somebody,and it has to be somebody who have your feelings,one who understands you----A FRIEND. Even at the work place----one is an employee but you have to be friends with the seniors------though that friendship should be controlled-------yes----friendships are different----you get one who befriends you in a certain fovourale way and you manage it to achieve tha goals

That is what i always dislike. When we friends to people we should be sincere. and never and never try to make use of them. But some of my friends seem like always make use of people. I really feel very boring on it.

Hi dear! Friends are very important in my life. They are like salt and spice in a tasty dish. One cannot enjoy a spicy dish without spices. Like-wise one cannot enjoy life without good friends. I have many friends and all play important role in my life. I share all my joys and sorrows with them.

Yes, we can live very well without friends! Friends are very uncertain! Even a best friend can let you down when you are dire need and wanting their help. I am a senior male who graduated school and college, went into business for myself, and worked for 60 years without making any friends. I liked everyone, and made no enemies, but I was careful not to get too close to any one. You may ask why, and I'm about to tell you. I am, and always have been, my Own Best friend! Myself is always there when I need a friend. I can count on myself no matter how bad the circumstances, and I've never had to apologize to my friend (myself) for the trouble I found myself in. I am my own best friend always, and forever, and I can count on my best friend (myself)to be there for me Always! ALWAYS!

I think friends are important in someone's life. I do have several friends but don't see them on a regular basis since they continue to work and are busy and I am now retired and home a good part of the time. I do have one real close friend who is extremely important to me. She's been an ideal friend with many good qualities. We meet for lunch about every two weeks to chat and laugh. Today I am taking her son to work since she is at work and he doesn't drive. I am thrilled I can help her at a time when she is in need of a favor. I also have several what I would call online friends. We keep in touch via email so it's been fun, thanks to myLot.

Personally i think that friends are important at time. Even if they might be selfish, ignorant little ... Anyways, i believe everyone can have friends, and everyone has that one person which is there friend for sure, maybe he shares the same the same intrests you have. Anyway, i really think that not having friends can effect your life, because through friends you get to know what revolves around every single person's life, not your only. So basically without friends, we would all be selfish little people, not caring about other , but ourselves, bummer.

Yaya I do agree with you. Friends definitely will become a sweet memory once we are old !!

Yes,Friends are certainly inmportant and without them, life would be pretty lonely.we need friends around us not just for socializing,but to build relationship with them and be there for them,and for them to be there for us in return. Friendship is a wonderful thing and is vitally important for personal growth and success....

There are certain things that heve no measures and it applies for friendship too. It's really a difficult question to be answered that how important are friends in one's life. Yes the are very important and they stand by your side at your needs and deeds and it is absolutely important that you never forget your friends in your life time. God has given us relatives but thank goodness we can choose frends. Have a great day and happy Mylotting. Cheers:-)

Friends are strong influence of your characters. That's why the old saying still holds "Tell me who your friends are and I tell you who you are". Choosing friends is crucial for your successes. You must be selective whom you mingle in every day. Good friends are gift from God that should be treasure. In my case, I'm so grateful because most of my friends are active members of our church that aid me to keep track in following the commandments of God.

I have lived without friends, it is not impossible. Being without a kinship doesn't necessarily mean you have to be hostile or aloof or unfriendly, you could still maintain friendliness with the society and prove to be a worthy citizen. It just means you don't bank upon someone to keep your social and emotional life healthy, since that's what most people make friendships for. We can make the distinction between friendship and friendliness clearly. In friendship, there will be a tacit expectation from either side that becomes manifest later on at an opportune moment which would either reinforce it or render it brittle. As Stephen Covey writes in his "7 Habits of Highly effective People", each personal maintains an emotional bank account for another, when you do good to them, you make deposits, and when you wrong them, you withdraw. I don't want to make my life a business, you see - I will be nice, considerate and friendly to everyone regardless of whether I'm treated by the same token or not. And that sweet, special friendship with someone? No thanks, god's been my pal, couldn't ask for anything better.

Yup,I can't live without my friends. They are important to me and they are my life. I have lots of friends but I only have few people whom I can turn to whenever I need help. I can name only few of them. These are the ones I cannot live without. They are the ones who can tell the truth about you, your wrong side, and the good side. Like with my family, I consider them my strength, my allies and my confidante.

Hy sabahking!! In my life the friend are very important.Many peoples don't think like this. But when you need something and you don't have money to buy you go at one friend, and ask him if he can hel you. So i tjhink every men has friends even if they say they don't have friend.
