Re: topic sentence.( I need your opinions)
A lot depends on what comes in the rest of the paragraph. However, I don't think much of the second as it is a bit vague- 'sometimes' is almost an emtpy word to me and doesn't really convey much, so it doesn't make it clear the degree of the depency and whether this is good or bad, or both. 3 doesn't really work because 'present' doesn't fit the context- how about something like 'the greatest addition to one's life is a good friend'?
