No one can go through life without friends and still lead a normal and reasonably happy life. We need friends to maintain our peace of mind, to bolster our self respect and fulfill human aspirations. Friendship is not a game to play. There is a deep dimension to it that we often overlook. I like you just because explores some of these. It explores the need we have of friends, the risk we take in developing friendships, the obligations we assume and the sense of well being we experience in the give and take that friendships demand.
