Hi friends, I once have some close friends but estranged with them now. On the contrary, some of my friends have tight ties with me, which takes me to a question that what's the most important thing in maintaining the close friendship. Here I give my perspective. One of the important factor, I don't know if it's accurate, is the circumstance. For instance, more often than not, the friendship between the poors is more tight than that between the poor and the rich. Because they are more genuine and more equal. So what's your opinion? Thanks.

In my opinion, rich or poor can not be used as a reference in establishing friendships. And I think the most important factor to build genuine friendship is a same vision and trust.

I agree with your views about it. It does not really matter what our status in life is. It's just a matter of having trust, love and concern with each other.

I don't mean to make friends in reference of whether they are rich. My point is, and I make an analogy, like attract like.

I am not sure about that. We can't actually generalize it. There are also poor people who are not genuine and equal with each other. While, there are rich people who are genuine. It always depends on friend's characters.

I don't mean all, but you can imagine an image that a poor man has to choose a friend between a poor man and a rich man and there are no ulterior motives, for example, wealth. So what do you think he will choose? Anyway, under the circumstance that I don't know the characters of them and I am a skint peason, I will choose the poor man.

I won't really look at what they're status is. If I can be friends with both of them I would do it. I won't choose based on their status. We can't really tell whether poor or rich will be a genuine person. It is up to us first to know the character of a person.

Hello.. I think its hard to have a rich friend to a person that came from in a average family like me. Because i cannot join them when they plan to go somewhere because i don't have the things that they have. I think i will just feel that im out of place if i will join them.

For me, the most important factor of friendship is communication. Without communication, there will be a possibility that a friendship will be ruined. I believe that communication is the most important component of friendship. It was already tested and proven based from my true experience. I have a friend in high school. We are best friends actually. Now in college, it is very sad that we go on separate ways. We have different school now. Since college life is very busy, we communicate each other seldom only; until this seldom turn into never. Yes, we never communicate each other now. I think, it is time to end our friendship. I have my new friends now in college. I just hope he find also his new friends wherever he is now.

Hello szz1990602, I don't think money is barrier in friendship.Rich and poor can be good friends.I never consider money/status while making friends.For me love,understanding,faith are the factors which affect friendship.

the most important factor of the frienship is to forgiveness, because two forgivers makes the best pair.

True friendship doesn't a criteria for wealth. friendship can happen when both minds meet. the understanding between two people and respecting one's opinion is one of the criteria to be considered for a successful friendship. Trust is one of the most important because it allows a person to pour out his/her inner sentiments about things and experiences of his life. That is where true friendship develops. When a person can be who she is in front of that person and accepting her whatever she is without judging, there is true friendship.It's not easy to find because one has spend years to know a person. May you find a true friend.:-)
