Friends play an important role in our life. And although we may take the fact of friendship for granted we often don’t dearly understand how we make friends.



I personally think that friendship means readiness to come to help each other, to give helping hand in trouble and hardships. It is usual foe close friends to have similar ideas and beliefs, to have attitudes and interests in common.

In my opinion it is not necessary to have many friends but to have one true friend is a dream of everybody. “ A good friend is my nearest relation”, the proverb says and it is important for me to have such a devoted friend whom I can rely on and trust everything about myself, all my personal secrets, with whom I can discuss all my problems.

In general life is more interesting and exciting when you have a person with whom you can be sincere, before whom you can think aloud. Friendship is a thing for two.” The way to have a friend is to be one.” I appreciate in our friendship the possibility to exchange opinions on different problems or to discuss different events, books or films or simply to chat about the lyceum affairs or having a cup of coffee.
