 The most Popular Friendship phrases of 2022

Cross someone's path - meet someone unexpectedly

This phrase originally indicated that such a meeting involved opposing a person or otherwise causing trouble for him, but in the modern sense it does not necessarily mean that.

For example, Anne swore that she would scream if a spider crossed her path.

A friend in need is truly a friend

A person who helps: when we are not feeling well or when we have problems is a true friend, unlike other people who disappear when difficulties arise.

For example, Mary lost her keys, so she has nowhere to spend the night, but Emma suggested that she stay at her house. a friend in need is a friend indeed.

Make friends

This phrase cannot be taken literally because it is impossible to “make” friends. The phrase means to make friends with someone; you develop warm feelings for someone.

For example, I hope John will soon be friends at school because he is feeling very lonely right now.

Bridge construction

This phrase means the improvement of relations between people who are significantly different from each other for one reason or another, or who do not like each other (often used with + between).

For example, a local charitable organization works to build bridges between the different ethnic groups in the city.

Friends in high positions

This phrase means that one has friends who occupy important or influential positions.

For example, Jim is very rude to other workers just because he has some friends in senior positions.

Be an element

This is said about people who are dating and who have a romantic relationship with each other.

For example, Kate and Richard started seeing each other and have been an item for about two years.

At odds with someone

This is said about people who have a dispute or disagreement. The word "potential" means controversy, inequality, or opportunity.

For example, the director and artist were always at odds during the production of this short film.

Birds of a feather

A popular expression that refers to people who have something in common, for example, interests, hobbies or views on life.

The whole term is "birds of a feather fall together", which means that people who have common interests tend to spend time with each other and become good friends.

For example, my boyfriend prefers the same clothes as me. Well, birds of a feather fall.

Man's Best Friend

This phrase refers to the dog, our loyal and faithful four-legged friend. This, of course, is used in the context of a pet, not a botanical name for the animal.

For example, a study of man's best friend showed that the relationship between humans and dogs began 100,000 years ago, a surprising fact, I think!

The honeymoon is over

This expression is useful if you want to say that a difficult time has begun in your life after things were relatively easy or enjoyable.

I think it's a good analogy. After all, often the "real" married life begins after the honeymoon.

For example, I learned my honeymoon was over at my new job when they started making me work late hours.

Strange partnerships

In the previous expression to get over it, we referred to two people who meet instantly as soon as they meet each other.

However, sometimes we can't see why two people like these are friends at all. We don't see anything in common or anything that we feel would make them very friendly.

In this case we say

They are fellow strangers. What is the common denominator between them?

Connect with someone

Another way to describe when someone does not find it difficult to make friends with other people.


Sally is a really nice girl. She always helps others and is easy to get along with (or easy to deal with). Everyone loves her.

To search for you

These are the English expressions of friendship that really close friends use.

This means that they are there to support each other through the good and the bad. When you're going through a tough time, it's good to know that you have a friend who will protect you. Someone who has your back.


David and Tom have been friends since their school days together. They did everything together. They played on the same team and went out on the weekends. They were protecting each other. They promised to look out for (protect) each other no matter what happened.
