Studies show that if you have five or more friends with whom to discuss an important matter you’re far more likely to describe yourself as “very happy.” Not only does having strong relationships make it far more likely that you take joy in life, but studies show that it also lengthens life (incredibly, even more than stopping smoking), boosts immunity, and cuts the risk of depression. One of the biggest obstacles to keeping friendships going is It takes time to email, to call, to make plans, to send holiday cards, to remember birthdays. Some people argue that technology hurts friendships, because it encourages people to stay tapping behind a computer screen rather than see people face-to-face. Meeting in a group is efficient, because you see a lot of people at once; it also means you’re creating a social network, not just a one-off friendship. Think about what level and type of social activity brings you happiness, then make the effort to make it happen. I have several friends whose spouses I’ve never met.

It’s a lot easier to maintain friendships with people if you have several friends in common. I have online friends whom I’ve never met face-to-face.

He would dramatically cry, "I love you, man" as a ruse to get the drink, but the line stuck in society and helped usher in the "bromance" movement. This helps them have more complete friendships with other guys, and also helps them relate to the women in their life.
Don't feel hurt if he and his friend want a guy's night without you.
