    There isn't just one word, there are several. And you may be interested in English Language Learners for future questions (read this for more information about that). – J.R. Apr 19 '16 at 16:31
  • Sociable, affable, an extrovert, socialite, outgoing, gregarious – Michael Apr 19 '16 at 16:35
  • Err... what's wrong with the obvious friendly? – FumbleFingers Apr 19 '16 at 16:42

    Do you want a noun or an adjective? Please give an example sentence with a blank space where you would like to use this word. – herisson Apr 19 '16 at 17:11

Consider sociable


  • inclined to associate with or be in the company of others.

  • friendly or agreeable in company; companionable.

  • characterized by agreeable companionship.

If the person doesn't like loneliness and needs company, you may say that he is "gregarious".

I'd suggest, friendship-oriented

In general, Americans are slightly more friendship-oriented than Europeans and considerably more friendship-oriented than Asians or Africans.

The "average American" book by Barry Tarshis

For example, women appear to be more friendship-oriented and practical as well as less game-playing in their love styles than do men. Men are more inclined toward casual sexuality than are women.
