The question of whether keeping friends can be more difficult than making them will always be controversial. Although many people think that it is not so hard to keep friends, others disagree.
In my opinion, making friends is not so easy. Firstly, when you get to know a new person, you do not know if they like your sense of humor. Humor is the most important thing in good relationships, but if a person cannot understand your jokes, they cannot understand you.
Secondly, it is difficult to find a theme for conversation. You both are not relaxed, so it is necessary to clear the air.
However, not all people are ready to share my point of view. They claim that for some people it is complicated to keep old friends. People tend to be changed because of some reasons, so it means that you can lose your connection with old friends. Moreover, you must stay in touch with them really often. Otherwise, you can ruin the friendship.
I cannot fully agree with the statement above. Even though you have changed, your people will be with you despite this fact. Moreover, it is easier to preserve friendship with people whom you know for a long time because you can understand whether something is wrong or not what cannot be said about new people.
To sum up, I believe that old friends are more important than new ones, but, as I see things, making friends can be more challenging.
