    To rely on just a few friends holds/involves the risk that one will be left alone/the risk of being left alone...... is idiomatic English.

    hi, i know this thread is old, but just to be sure:

    Can only people bear/run a risk (like it is in german),
    or can those two also be combined with circumstances, like in #1?
