    Cool Change friends or change my friends

    Good morning,

    Can you tell me if both options are correct here please:

    If I won the lottery:

    -I wouldn't change friends.

    -I wouldn't change my friends.

    If so, is there a difference in meaning?

    Thank you very much for your help,

    Re: Change friends or change my friends

    I find neither of them natural. Grammatically, they're both possible. People don't talk about changing their friends usually. We talk about dropping our ditching our current friends. We talk about making new friends.

    If I won the lottery, I wouldn't drop/ditch my friends.
    If I won the lottery, I wouldn't forget my friends.
    If I won the lottery, I'd probably have a lot of new friends.

    My final sentence doesn't mean that I would go out and search for new friends. If you win the lottery, lots of people come to you hoping to be your friend!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
