How should we choose friends Score: 3.5 July 24th, 2017 by a

How should we choose friends´╝č There are two possible attitudes toward this issue. Some say we should choose friend who resemble us, while others mention we should choose friend who do not resemble us.
As far as I am concerned, I definitely believe we should make friends with those who resemble us for the following reasons.
First of all, the choice is much easier than the other one. For example, I easily make friends with college student who play soccer. We have a lot of things in common, so we can enjoy talking with each other.
I have been playing soccer since I was a junior high school student, I have much knowledge about professional soccer players both in japan and abroad. This will make me find it easy to talk with other soccer fans. On the other hand, I find it difficult to make friends with those who are very different from me because I do not know what subject I should talk with them.
This example clearly shows that making friends with those who resemble us is much easier than with those who do not resemble us.
In addition, friends who have a lot of thing in common often help me to make up my mind on very important things in my life. For instance, when I was not able to decide whether I should give up my dream of becoming a professional soccer player, they shared their viewpoints with me. As I strongly wanted to be the one at that time, it was difficult for me to make a decision. Thanks to their supports, I was able to make up my mind.
As this instance illustrates, I think friends who have a lot of thing in common often help me to make up my mind on very important things in my life.
Therefore, I am convinced, for these reasons mentioned above, that we should choose friend who resemble us. First, making friends with those who resemble us is much easier than with those who do not resemble us.
Second, friends who have a lot of thing in common often help me to make up my mind on very important things in my life.
