We got somebody to talk to that gives a damn about us…'' Pg.15George explains to Lennie that both of them are lucky to have one another. Without each other they would be lonely, which is responsible for most of human suffering. Curley's wife, Crook, and Candy all talked about the loneliness in their life's and how miserable they are. Since George and Lennie are partners who travel with each other, they don't have to deal with that feeling because they have each other to support themselves."No, Lennie I ain't mad. I never been mad, an I ain't now. That's a thing I want ya to know.'' Pg.106George telling Lennie that he's not mad at him should calm him down in the dangerous situation that he's in. Before shooting him, George wanted to let Lennie know he was never mad at him for all of the unquestionable things he has done. All of those mistakes were in the past and it was time to move on and forget about them.

This event foreshadows the decision that George will have to make at the end of the book."A guy needs somebody to be near him; He whined. A guy goes nuts if he ain't got nobody." Pg.72Everybody needs that friend that will help them out in difficult situations and support them, just like the relationship that George and Lennie had. George was the leader trying to assist Lennie who was not prepared to live on his own. If their came a time of triumph and your partner were to be absent, you would have a hard time dealing with that situation, just like Lennie did when George was not at his side."Ain't many guys travel around together; he mused. I don't know why. Maybe ever' body in the whole damn world is scared of each other. Pg. 35Individuals normally don't travel with each other in this novel because they are shy, not superior at expressing themselves, or just see no need to travel with one another.
