In an age of social media, we may be tempted to think that friends are not necessary. It’s not that people believe that no relationship is necessary, but some question whether that face-to-face friendship is really needed. This may come as a result of those who are younger who spend much more time socially interacting… Continue reading Are Friends Necessary?
