Yes! I can stay a place like I've been doing for years now without a close friend. I only have acquaintances that we do exchange pleasantries from distance, but I can't call them friends. Sincerely, I have come to realized that most people we call friends are not true friends but frenemies. They are only posing as friends but they cannot play the role of a true friend. Why having someone you call a friend that can't be of help to you when you're in dire need? I thought they usually say that a friend in need is a friend indeed.
When I was much younger, I used to see friendship as necessity, because I was making them at an uncontrollable rate. But as I grew older, I began having a better definition of the qualities a friend should possess before I can outrighly refer to him/her as one. And now, from what I have experienced, that a friend is a potential enemy and an enemy is also a potential friend.
