I think the type of bond these women created is very unique. It's not likely many people have the opportunity to have a group of friends like this. However, I do think that many people might have different types of friends from different activities. Everyone needs an older, wiser friend to guide them, a friend that supports them and takes care of them, and a friend to bring out their wild side.

Having different personalities in your circle of friends is nice, but not always possible. Being a woman belonging to Eastern culture and background, but a full-time career in healthcare and kids ranging from teenagers to young children meant I had no time to nurture friendships. I realize what a blessing friends are. Friendships happen spontaneously but need active effort and time, like the characters in the story have for each other.

Various circumstances pulled the women to one another in the book. Ordinarily, everyone is unique, it is this uniqueness that individuals bring into a relationship. With respect to women's relationships, it is this individuality that they bring to the relationships they have with their friends and this appears as though it was deliberate, meanwhile it was unplanned originally. It is great to have an assortment of friends though.

In my humble opinion, friendship is a thing of the heart. Their personalities do not matter as long as they are good friends.

I feel blessed to say, I have a combination of a Rose and a Sophie in my life.

I would definitely say that my range of friends have different personalities, but there are a lot of things that we each have in common. And this is what makes our relationship strong.

I don't think you need specific 'types' of friend or will ever real find anyone that fits neatly into a category. People are interesting because they are unique and diverse and friendship should celebrate differences and similarities equally.
