Google defines friendship as “A person with whom one has a bond of mutual affection, typically one exclusive of sexual or family relations.”And I completely agree with this definition or explanation given by Google for this lovely word. But, in our society the question of gender is always raised. In some households in India, girls and boys are not allowed to have friends from the opposite sex, strange? But, that’s extremely true. Well! This is not true in my case though.
Do we need friends from both genders?
In my opinion, we all just require a friend, the gender hardly matters. If a person is the one with whom I get along well, I won’t mind having a transgender friend too. Because in friendship it is not the gender which matters, what matters is the feeling, the love which you share with each other. I have friends of both the genders. And the truth is that friends from different genders have different qualities. So, we should have friends from both the genders. But, my point is that friendship is never forced, it just happens for it is destiny.
Is it possible?
Yes, it is possible because a friend from another gender is not a monster. In the end, even those whose families are against this theory have friends from another gender. It is simply that they don’t tell their families about the same. I think parents should allow their kids to have friends of opposite sex. Another thing which one should keep in mind is that we should not cross our limits. The reason Why some parents don’t allow their kids to have friends of the opposite sex is because they are afraid that their kid may cross his or her limits and it may ruin the kid’s life.
I think it is not gender which is to be taken into consideration what should be considered is that the person whom you are making your friend is worth your friendship. The person should not be the one who hauls you into bad company or drug abuses. A friend is a person who doesn’t make use of you but instead is the one who remains firm with you, come what may.
