The main types of friendship.

Based on the specifics of friendly relations, we can consider them, with reference to the following three basic patterns:

Friendship of two people united by one profession (colleagues);

Relations that have become strong, since kindergarten, school, university and so on (childhood friends);

Finally, a bond that was formed spontaneously, at some particular moment of the life (disco, theater, stadium, common friends, common interests, and so on).

In each such case of the emergence and continuation of friendship there are positive and negative nuances. Because not all friendly relations are built on the foundation of honesty and sincerity. Let us first turn to the negative aspects, which often lie at the base of quite normal, like, relations.

There are friends who need a person to become a “vest” for other people’s tears. They take pleasure in the fact that an outsider trusts them with their most secret secrets. They are lonely in nature and need not in a concrete person, but in the consciousness that he has someone, over whom he has power.

There are also friends, who are friends with someone, as long as it is convenient for them. The most common pairs are either a despot, admired by his friend who is ready to do everything for the sake of friendship, or simply a pragmatic person who skillfully maintains the relationships to extract, from time to time, any benefit for himself.

But there are also sincere relations, between sufficiently older people, and friendship between a guy and a girl, which is also not uncommon. Most often they arise from a harmony of interests and have a fairly powerful resource for survival. And this friendship can be not only in the ordinary reality, but, for example, in social networks. Young people, for whom, with the entry into a serious life, are opened numerous professional opportunities, they can easily communicate among themselves, without seeing any sexual implication in it. The same thing happens with more adult people, who are united by a common profession or common interests in music, painting or literature. There is a huge space for a fruitful exchange of useful information.

A true friend.

Going through life, many of us often thought about what kind of people are around us. Every day we are faced with a lot of people – be it a neighbor or friend who lives with you in the same courtyard; a classmate or a dance partner. But the truly important for you are people, which we can call friends.

We often hear the reasoning about who is a true friend. Each person has his own criteria, his guidelines. I would like to tell, what the combination of words “a true friend” means for me.
We often do not notice how much is good – to feel the presence of a friend next to ourselves, to feel that you are not alone.

We do not pay attention to those happy moments and the little stupid things that we do with friends, and in fact they are parts of human happiness. All of us, no doubt, have heard the phrase “friend – a man who will not betray, who will not leave us in difficult times …” Of course, on the one hand, it is true. For me, friend – is a person with whom always easy, with whom you want to spend a lot of time together, and no matter where, no matter in what time of day or year. This is a person with whom there will always be topics for discussion, which, perhaps, understandable only to the two of you.

Friend – is a person who feels your mood. For a friendly smile, we often hide our true state of mind, which sometimes leaves much to be desired. But in other ways, only friend can really feel what you feel.
A friend – a person who is always sincere with you. Only a true friend, in joyous moments of your life, is able to sincerely rejoice for you and your success, while others are hard trying to hide envy.
The friend – the one who takes care of you better than you about yourself. The one who sincerely promises you that he would kill if you do not stop drinking many cups of coffee per day, who believes in you.


Friendship – a mutual, a bright feeling, in no way inferior to feeling of love. Friendship – it’s a necessity. After all, no one in the world can not live his whole life in solitude, man, for personal and for spiritual growth just need to communicate. Without friendship, we begin to withdraw into themselves, begin to suffer from a lack of understanding and understatement.

For me, a close friend is equated to brother or sister. Such relationships are not afraid of any challenges, the hardships of life. Each in his own way understands the concept of “friendship”. For someone – a communication on similar interests, for others – a joint experience, mutual aid.

I mean by the concept of friendship – a spiritual closeness, absence of envy in moments of ups and support at a time when it seemed that the whole world has turned away from you. Friend – is not acquaintance with which you can spend your time, it’s almost a family member. Friendship should be mutual and trusting, without this, friendship will not be strong and reliable.

Close friends should be no more than three, and the rest – just acquaintances, people with whom you have to periodically communicate, walk, meet at work, in the shop or on the street. Of course, there are such persons who want to show what you have inside, but you must be careful. Some people, under the guise of friendship, pursue in a relationship with you only personal benefit. Such a one-sided friendship can lead to deep disappointment in other people.

Life – it is a very complex process. At any moment it anything could happen, but having a close and trusted person next to you, you can be calm. No adversity, illness and other difficulties will not be able to break down you – because you will always have support in the form of strong friendly shoulder.
