12 Reasons Friendship Gives Value to Survival

True friendship is a gift.

12 Reasons Friendship Gives Value to Survival

We like to emphasize romantic relationships. Romance takes the spotlight in movies, TV shows, music, books, and gossip, and we overlook the beauty of friendship. C.S. Lewis writes, "Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art . . . It has no survival value; rather is one of those things that give value to survival." I honestly cannot imagine struggling through college without my friends. Here are 12 reasons why.

1. Friends put up with you.

2. Friends go on adventures with you.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
