DO we really need a friend in our life. If yes whether it's necessary to be of opposite gender.

We all do need a friend, a friend is a friend no matter what is the gender.Personally I don't believe in the quantity of friends but the quality that you have.I can only count true friends with my single hand but I'm very thankful because I have those people.

Man cannot live alone. During childhood, it is the parents who give company and some little children at school whom you really cannot call friends, though they say friends. When you are grown into teens, it is important to have friends to share your thoughts and feelings. To have a genuine friend one need not worry about gender. A friend is a friend.
