MAKING FRIENDS





Friendship is like a tree.
It takes time to grow and mature.


Oftentimes, we hear people say, "it's not easy for me to make friends." Even though we may enjoy and need to be alone now and then, we are basically social animals who need the company and cooperation of others. We need to make friends, to like and be liked, and to form loving relationships with at least a few people who are in some ways special to us. Maintaining the relationship is even harder. It requires more than similarity in nature and tastes.


W
e all have our flaws and imperfections, but as two people get to know more of each other, these shortcomings will not affect the re
lationship. Instead, they help strengthen the bond of friendship.


To understand the relationships that people form, it is important to realize that we are not focusing on individual behavior. Instead, we keep meaning to understand behavior between pairs of human beings and the reasons people like and love those they do.
