Personally speaking, yes, I do believe most American "friendships" are superficial and are at best, treated as a mere status symbol ("I have many
friends, but you don't!") In my experience, a true friendship shouldn't have to be salvaged or maintained, it simply IS. A colossal amount of
people simply don't bother to try to initiate that kind of connection here anymore, Americans just collect "friends" as an alternate to the "look
at the size of my paycheck" braggart method.
I find it easier to become & remain friends with foreigners, they get it better than Americans do. Being a friend isn't just a phone number entry or
an FB list membership, it's a meaningful connection that means something more profound to them.
