Jul 27, 2020

Friends are the people you choose to share your life with. While much attention is paid to romantic love, it is actually the friends you make who impact and add so much to your life.

Stories of great friends are just as compelling as tales of romance. They abound in our iconic TV shows like Friends, or Grey’s Anatomy where Christina is truly Meredith’s person. In literature, who could ever doubt the friendship between Shakespeare’s Horatio and Hamlet or Twain’s Tom and Huckleberry Finn. These besties always have each other’s backs.

"True friendships are hallmarked by each member's desire to engage with the other – it's about mutual interest in one another's experiences and thoughts, as well as a sense of 'belongingness' and connection," Dr. Suzanne Degges-White, a Northern Illinois University psychologist and friendship expert told How Stuff Works.
