1.Do you think it is easier to make friends when you are a child or grow up? Why? 2.Do you prefer have one or two close friends or having many friends which are less close? Why? 3.Is it because of trust (based on the last question) ?
Sample answers： 1.Definitely when I am a kid. When I was at primary school, things were simple because whoever sit beside me or whoever played with me would be my friends. If one of my classmates lived in the same neighborhood as I did, then we would go home together every day. But when I grow up, to be friends require same or at least similar outlooks on world. 2.I prefer to have one or two close friends rather than many friends who are less close to me. Close friends could help me at critical moments. For example, when I need money to get through some difficulties, it is close friends who will stand out and cope with the problems with me together. But remote acquaintances will find all kinds of excuses to say no. 3.Yes, remote acquaintances actually do not know each other that much. Usually they will talk about some trivial matters such as buying what brands of bags or daily commodities. But when it comes to the issue of interests, they have not built such strong bonds and they will doubt and worry that whether the money borrowed out can be returned or not.
