i always have this confusion about which relation either friendship or love is the most precious one in this world. when i was in my school i use to argue with full fledge that friendship is only the most precious one. but one of my friend who's in love said that love is more precious than friendship. we both had a huge argument regarding this. wat do u people think? friendship or love?

well in my opinion...to love someone as a partner/lover there has to be a friendship also for it to work.... a true friendship will often outlast lovers/partners and i think they are the most important people to have but that is not to say that a lover or partner are not equally precious. when we are in love we often neglect friends..but real friends are still there at the end...and of course a real love/partner if you choose the right one will also be there at the end... both can be just as precious and important in our lives...i guess it depends on what we feel we need at the time...

handsame - The man is so handsome.It is one part in preson break.I love him so much ,not only his feature but also his temperament.
I think friendship and love are all important in one's life.but i consider friendship is more important than love.Who hurt you most? your friends or lover?my answer is lover,and when i was sad who sat on my side and listened i crying?the answer is friend.My friends always treat me as family menber .i love them so much.

I guess friendship is the essence of love, be it love of any kind. If you are not friend with anyone it is not posible to love that person so you need to be freindly first. Moreover I will say when we are in sour times the we want to share some feeling so we feel that someone should be there to stand besides and understand us.The base lies that we look to find such friend who can show love and carings.

ya. my opinion is, there is only one difference between love and friendship and that is lust. FRIENDSHIP + LUST = LOVE. LOVE - LUST = FRIENDSHIP. wat do u say?

friendship is better, because if their is no friendship there will be no love.friendship is the base for love.without friendship,there can be no love.basically, love is friendship.

both is wonderful, Love is more precious then friendship only because it's so hard to find true love, but it's not too hard to find someone who will be a true friend.

Let us not put this 2 things together.Love is entirely different from friendship.Friendship is where you can share anything between each other but love can be only with the individual you are in love,nobody else.

ok i agree that friendship can be made to anyone, but love is a feeling for just one person. but even that one person can also be a friend. right?? so.. how can u say that friendship and love are different??

The answer to your question is: neither. You can't have one without the other. If you don't love your friends, then your friendship isn't solid and won't last. And if your lover isn't also your friend, that relationship isn't going to last.

I think when u make any friend then no love inside friendship.....Bcoz fried faith on u then he/she accept ur friendship... if u mix love in friendship that made misunderstanding btwen friends.... I love frienship is the root..........

Friendship is the first step towards loving someone U need to be a friend of whom u love. A bollywood movie says "Love is Friendship". According to me both are incomparable.

To me they need to go hand in hand. You can't have a real friendship without some type of love. And to be truely in love you need a strong friendship to make it work. Thats my opinion.

The person you share in love should be your greatest friendship. So why choose?

If there is no friendship, can you love a person? Will you go and love a stranger? So, first friendship, go deeper and deeper, you will see there is a hidden love (in whatever sense you take the word 'love').

Although these two things are very important to everyone,they are not at the same weight in different minds.In my opinion friendship is more important and valuable to one's life.I can't say why but I'm thinking in that way.

Love is universal, without it there can never be friendship. If you are taliking about love between a woman and a man, then surely that is personal because it has to do more with issues of the heart and intimacy than with mere friendship, and if you asked my oppinion, I will say i will need both because there friends I cannot live witjout and there people I must be intimate with!
