(Give a reason for your answer) I’m quite an introvert and somehow prudent in relationship, so I consider few to be my close friends. Actually, I usually don’t get on well with complicated people. Therefore, there are few occasions that allow me to go out and interact with others.
- (Where do you like to go when you are out with your friends?)
(Answer) Well, that depends.
(Give a reason for your answer) We sometimes go to the restaurants to enjoy the tasty food if someone finds a decent place; and if we have plenty of time, we’d like to plan a hike or camp in the nearby forest park to enjoy the natural life. That would be a very memorable experience.
- (Do you like to go out with a big group or just with some friends?)
(Answer) To me, it’s better to have 3 or 4 genuine friends than a lot of acquaintances.
(Give a reason for your answer) As I have put it, I am generally more of an introvert, so I prefer to get to know my smaller friend group better than hanging out with large groups all the time. We enrich each other, support each other and like each other. I would never have maintained such tight, enduring bonds if I hadn’t narrowed my circle. In the end, whether one has a small, cozy group of friends or a larger, more boisterous gaggle may depend on individual personalities and circumstances.
