A friendship decline may start when friends steal their best friend’s boyfriends/girlfriends, ruining your friend’s reputation just to be liked or to get popular, giving a bad advice to your friend so she ends up ruining her life. What is really wrong with us? We are so self-centered just looking out for our benefits and mean ways that can help us get it all in life that we have even lost our moral values. Once a person gets deceived by a close friend her or his trust and confidence is broken forever. He or she will have to take a lot of time to build up that confidence back again and one never gets a chance to do that as unfaithful friends are now who we are surrounded with.
The friendship decline in men may be caused by the fear of getting to close with a man turning that friendship into something more than that or may be people getting the wrong idea to see two men so close. Heterosexual men can be buddies but becoming to close and forming a bond with another man makes them think they are any less of a guy or the judgmental pressure from our society makes them conscious about the fact that their friendship do not end up making them called “partners” or a “couple”
The pressure of society is so much on each individual, everyone judging someone else at all times that it has made us so conscious about what people think of us. We won’t act close to anyone especially men to show they are all macho and manly. Girls on the other hand play tricks and games with their friends to either embarrass one of them or pull down someone’s legs. The statistics and researches show that in 1985 majority of the people had three close friends and confidants but this has narrowed down to two people per person. This might decrease even more wit the fast pace that we are moving with in this century.
Another problem of friendship decline in people’s life is a girl and a boy could be great, best friends. But eventually someone wants more, tells the other one and the whole thing can end in two ways. Firstly, the other person might not feel the same way about the other and leave him alone forever. Lastly they might start going out and they would not be a very good couple as much as they were good friends and blew it all. Leaving them in the middle of nowhere, where they can’t continue going out anymore neither they can stay friends because it’s awkward and hard. So having another sex friend might mostly not work for most people. This way you not just lose a friend, you also lose a boyfriend/girlfriend.
To stop the issue of friendship decline we should lay back and relax more rather than be competitive at all times. Chill and let other people chill around you too. No need of breaking the moral values just for your own personal benefit. The trick you play to succeed might work at that time but you will end up staying alone forever.
