Comment on the following statement:
|It's easier to make friends than to keep them.|
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people say that it’s easier to make friends than to keep them whereas others say that it’s not true.
I think that it’s easier to make friends than to keep them. First it takes less time. You can go to a club and make a lot of new friends in a few hours. Second it’s easier to impress people when you just meet them. People tend to show good qualities in the beginning of their relationship. As far as I see most people like making friends. It’s a part of human nature.
At the same time there are people who think that it’s easier to keep friends than to make them. They say that it’s really hard to come up to a person and start a conversation. There is also a big chance to meet a person with completely different interests and not get along.
I my opinion those people are just too shy to talk to a stranger. To keep good relationship one should have qualities like tolerance and understanding that are hard to find nowadays.
In conclusion I’d like to say that it’s not very easy to make new friends or to keep them. But choosing between what is more difficult I would say that keeping friends is always more difficult. It takes time and effort, patience and willingness to compromise.
