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 is easier to make friends than to keep them, whereas others say that it is not true. They consider keeping friends as an easier job.
In my opinion it is easier to make new friends than to keep good relationship with the old ones. First of all, making new friends takes less time. For example, one can go to a club and make a lot of new friends in a few hours. Secondly, it is easier to impress people when a person just meets them for the first time. For instance, people tend to show only good qualities in the beginning of any relationship. They are always polite, they smile and are always ready to help.
At the same time there are some people who think that it is easier to keep friends than to make them. They say that it is really hard to come up to a stranger and start a conversation. There is also a big chance to meet a person with completely different interests who peple can hardly get along with.
I my opinion those people are just too shy to talk to a stranger. In order to keep good relationship one should have qualities like tolerance and understanding that are hard to find nowadays.
In conclusion I would like to say that it is not very easy to make new friends or to keep them. Yet, choosing between what is easier I would say that making new friends is easier than keeping current friends. Making new friends takes less time and effort, patience and willingness to compromise than keeping current friends.
