How many friends? Score: 4 December 28th, 2017 by fusijie

The society is made up with many different people, and many different communications between those different people, and you can't just know or meet a few people to be convenient and enjoyable in daily life of the society absolutely. Therefore, I strongly believe that to make many different and new friends in more important for maintaining friendships with a small number of people over a long period of time for happiness.
Firstly, to make many new friends normally means that you meet a lot of different people, and those people all have different interests and ablities, then when your life is boring, you can just give soem phone calls to get them together to have fun. If you only have a few friends, although the friendship between you and them is very strong, the atmosphere created by them won't be as great as the one created by many friends, just because when a lot of people get together, it's more bustling and can make you feel more relaxed during the big party. When you only have a few friends, this kind of feeling will never be felt to you.
Furthermore, when you meet with a lot of friends, the life is more interesting because these different friends all have different skills, maybe you can play the violim, he can play the piano, and she can play the guitar, so it's easy for you to study and learn from each other, that is the best thing between friends and really makes you feel happy. Or you can cooperate together for one beautiful song to enjoy. However, when you only have a few friends, how can this be done?
In fact, I can understand some people arguing with me who believe that make a few real friends to maitain the friendships for a long time is more precious and important, but this is not the absolute case. I believe that to make many friends can also last the friendships for a long time and be real and invaluable, and this is only depends on your heart. If you really respect the person as your real friend in your heart and you show your true heart to him and always care about him and think for him, his heart will finally be touched and then be your best friends no matter how many friends that you make. We are all humans, we have emotions and we can also feel and understand others' emotions, if there's a person really good to you, whatever how many friends he make, we will still be willing to make real friends with him and last the friendships for a long time.
Although it's true to say that 'real' friend is better than a hundred fake friends, I still believe that making a lot of friends is better, because this can make your life become more interesting and varid. Also, why don't we make a lot of 'real' friends? That must be the best!
