How to choose a good friend
One has to be selective in looking for good friends. Everybody is looking for a perfect friend but not everybody gets one. People search the internet, neighborhood, classrooms etc for a suitable friend but are not always able to do this. How can you choose a good friend? I will talk about this in this article.
It is said that one must be careful about the friends one chooses. A good friend can make your life good while a bad friend can make your life bad. When you are born in this world all family relations are already created for you. But friendship is something that you have to choose and not already present. How can one choose a perfect friend? Let us discuss this.
The search for friends
A perfect friend is someone who is stylish, handsome, intelligent, has the capacity to attach with people, joyful, smiling and impressive. Today due to technology one is able to expand one's interaction considerably. This has led to a situation where is one is able to make a number of friends in schools, colleges, dance class, internet etc. These friends are linked by technology. However too many friends can create complications. It is better to have a few friends but good ones. One should be patient in searching for a good friend and never in a hurry. Today the trend of making friends on the internet is growing. Networking sites like Facebook and Orkut are the hang outs of today's generation. They spend hours on such sites accepting friend's requests and responding to them. Although it is easy to make friends on such sites one can land up in trouble if one is not careful. When people make new friends online they usually don't bother to check the details of that person. They give all their details to strangers online. A wrong kind of person can use this information to blackmail or cause trouble. Therefore one should be careful about what details one gives people online.
Friends of the opposite sex
Youngsters are always looking for friends of the opposite sex whether they be in college, coaching classes or in their neighborhood. When they are not able to get friends of the opposite sex, they get depressed. In some cases they can even even get violent. It is common to read about boys in the newspapers who kidnap girls just because the girl turned down their friendship request. Therefore one has to be even more careful in searching for friends of the opposite sex. Girls should be more careful when they search.
Parents can help
Youngsters today are reaching maturity quickly. They are trying to look at the world through a new viewpoint different from the elders. If parents see that their children are sleeping late, missing classes, introducing them to new parents, they should be careful. They should keep an eye on the friends of their children but need not interfere.
