1. Do you think friends are important?
Of course friends are important! Without friends we would be lonely much of the time, and although sometimes it’s nice to be left alone it would be horrible to have no one to talk to. With friends we can enjoy similar interests, talk about our lives and share experiences. Friends should held close, because they’re some of the most valuable things we can have. A true friend will
be there for you when you need them most. A strong group of friends is as good as, if not better
2. Do you prefer to have one or two close friends or a wide circle of friends?
I have a wide range of interests, so I think it’s good to have a wide circle of friends because way I’m always able to find someone who I can talk to about something. To be honest though, it’s much better to have one or two close friends because those are the friends that count. Close friends will always stick by you through thick and thin, and you can talk about more personal issues than you can with mere acquaintances. I’ve had many, many friends over the years but I’ve lost touch with most of them. Only a few have been my friends the whole time, and I think that’s the mark of true friendship.
3. What do you think is the difference between a 'close friends' and a 'best friend'?
Some people attach great significance to the title of ‘best friend’. Personally, I don’t think it’s possible to single one person out as the ‘best’ and better than other friends. Sometimes i t makes other friends feel inferior because they are not given this title. The idea of a best friend is a good though: it means someone who you absolutely trust, have known for a long time and get along very well. It’s a special relationship that means a lot to both people.
4. How can one distinguish between a close friend and an acquaintance?
It’s easy to tell the difference. An acquaintance may be someone you enjoy spending time and probably has similar interests to you, but you don’t know enough about each other to really be good friends. Acquaintances are often made at school or work where people spend a lot of time each other, and you probably like them and enjoy being with them but don’t have much of a relationship beyond th at. A close friend is someone who you’ve maybe known for a long time and know very well. A close friend is someone you can talk to about your thoughts and feelings, but probably wouldn’t do that with an acquaintance.
