Why do humans form friendships? Is it for the reason to prevent conflicts over competing for the same resources? Is it for the emotional bonding between humans? What constitutes those bonds? Does it result from shared experiences? Brain chemicals? Why do friends turn on each other? Why do they stay lifelong associates? Personally, I rarely see the friends I have, I rarely communicate with them, I don’t really desire to seek out their company. People go out with friends, have dinner with them, perform recreational activities with them, but why? What is gained from friendships? What evolutionary advantage does friendship hold and is that still relevant in contemporary society? If it is not relevant today, what newly emergent properties does friendship hold that are beneficial to today’s modern human?
