Yes. Friends are certainly important and without them, life would be pretty lonely. We need friends around us not just for socializing, but to build relationships with them and be there for them, and for them to be there for us in return.

Friends make life fun and interesting and they also provide support and advice when we need it. Receiving support and help from a friend gives us confidence and makes us feel like we have someone there for us, and we do the same for them in return, because we value them and want them to feel like we care about them.

There may be a time when we are in a particularly bad mood and we don't feel like seeing friends, but if they were to be taken away permanently then we would certainly notice a change in our lives and we'd be pretty miserable.

It is important to make friends and keep in contact with old friends. It is a waste to let old friendships fade away and we need new friends in order to receive new and interesting input in our lives. Pen friends, for example, are particularly interesting, as you will be living far away from them, so there will always be things to share and new input reaching you, giving you a bit of variety in your life and something different to what you are used to

Friends are very important to have in life, close friends and acquaintances. They are right below family, sometimes can be above. Friends will always be there for you no matter what, the ones that truly care for you. They give the sense of belonging somewhere and knowing that you're not alone in this world. Even family can be your best friends because you share your inner-most feelings with them having that trust it would stay there. A life without friends is like a flower without sun. The sun helps the flower to grow and show its true color, to be radiant and vibrant. If the flower had no sun, it would wilt over and eventually die. Friends help you grow and make you feel great and happy, enjoy life to the fullest. Otherwise without them your soul dies and you feel empty inside. Friends.....a very important factor in a human beings life,

Well you can say, friend is like a blessing. If you find at least one good friend then your life can be so much better. A friend is someone who helps you when you're in trouble, they are someone who laughs with you, cries with you, spends time with you, tell you when you're wrong and tells you want you should whenever you ask for an advice. A friend is a person who shows up at 4 o'clock in the morning, if you need them.

Basically a friend is a person, who shouts at you when you're wrong, laughs at you when you look funny, tells you your mistakes. Brings you to the right path in life, tell you what is right and what is wrong. A friend is like an angle that is always with you, in every path of life, holding hands and walking in the long journey of life. If you have a nice friend then this life can be like heaven and if you don't have a nice friend and there is nothing in this world which can take the place of a friend. So you see having a friend is very important with whom you can share your deepest and darkest secrets and fears of life.

For most of us having friends is important.
Friendship can come on many levels and not everyone finds it easy to make lasting friendships.
Some people are by nature, anti-social and don't feel the need to have friends around but most of us appreciate our friends.
There's a difference between having friends who we see occasionally and deep lasting friendships which have a much deeper meaning. If we are lucky we find that someone who becomes a very best friend and companion. This can be a partner or someone we value sometimes more than members of our own family.
Most people need friendships on some level. Friends are part of our social life they can support each other when things go wrong and also be there to share good times.
Even if we can't see our friends often just keeping in touch gives a sense of caring and belonging.
Friends can get on our nerves and sometimes we feel we'd like to avoid them for a while but real friendship stands up to all these tests and is a valuable thing worth looking after.

A friend is a gift of God and a person cannot live and survive alone, as he or she needs someone with whom they can share their feelings. During sad moments, every human being needs a shoulder to cry on.
Your friend may be older than you and maybe it is your mother or your father. Everyone needs friends. If you want to give information about someone, you can check his friends, because friends are a person's identity. We learn a lot from our friends who also boost our self-confidence. Friends are always ready to help us in hours of need and only a lucky person enjoys the support and company of good and loyal firneds.

*Friends are very necessary in life. We were not meant to be lone rangers or in other words an island unto ourself. Friends: often times have a different perspective on things, help us to laugh when we couldn't on our own, enjoy who we are and help us through hard times. You can share things with friends: the appreciation for a certain type of music, food, art, laughter, good conversation.... Friends lift you up when you're down or they just spend time with you when life gets tough. A good friend won't care if you have make-up on or not.
I lost my Dad to cancer and another disease back in Aug of 2005 and I had friends show up at the funeral that I didn't know were coming. It was an overwhelming time but to see them made it easier. They didn't know what to say but that was ok. I can't explain how much it meant to me that they came to support me. What an amazing feeling.

It would not be pertinent to say that without friends we can't live, but it would be prudent to say that without friends we can't live a healthy life. Healthy life means full of joy and happiness. There is same difference between life & healthy life as between not ill person & healthy person.

Relations play an important role in anybody's life. These relations may be of any sort either blood relations, other relations or friends. The importance of relations is so much that a man cannot lead a balanced and good life without them. So far your question is concerned that are friends important in one's life can be explained in this way.

From his early childhood a man requires company of friends. A normal child starts making friends even before the age of school. In school he makes lot of friends of his taste and habits. Then in college and universities when a person gets enough matured, his selection about friends differs. He chooses and selects only those friends, which match his personality. Then again in practical life even after marriage and children he needs the company of friends of his taste and habits because these things cannot be achieved from wife and children. So we can simply say that a man needs friends and companions till his death and you can judge the importance of friends from this.

Friends are extremely important. Everyone needs someone in their life that they can relate to, and someone to talk to when times are rough with the family. You always want that someone you can chill with on a Saturday night. If I didn't have any friends, I don't know what I would do. I don't like having a lot of friends because of drama, but it's always nice to have a few.

The reason that friends are important is so you can have someone to
talk to if you don't want to go to your parents. And they can always
help you when you get into a situation and you're not quite sure what
to do. If you didn't have any friends then you would be anti social,
and that's not good.

Well. Honestly yes you do need someone you can talk to. At least 1 or 2.friends, or associates I may say. Real friends are hard to come by. I;ve been hurt by so called friends so the least the better. You can't trust everybody and beleive me if you do feel the need to have multiple friends, feed them with a long handed spoon meaning tell them what you want them to know. Please don't tell ALL your business because one's person's business ain't everbody elses... I only have maybe 1 good friend in which at times I have to keep my distance. It's hard to trust women even men

Extremely. It has been proven over and over that people with friends tend to live longer than people who are lone wolves. That should be telling you something right there.

Most friends end up disappointing us in the long run.  So why start a friendship in  the first place?  There is no such thing as a 'friend'....just acquaintances.
