The if/else conditional works OK when I test it. Maybe you fixed the issue since making your help request.

friend is only being tested against "yes", not the rest of the possible positive answers. This code does the job:

yeses = ["yes", "yeah", "Yes", "Yeah", "sure", "Sure"];

if(friend in yeses ):
  print(f"yay! the {variable2} year old {variable} is my friend!")
else:
  # it doesn't want to use the else statement
  print(f'{variable}... you don\'t want to be my friend? :,(')
