What makes a friend a friend to you?

Someone who will stand by you no matter the consequence(s). Most people have many, many acquaintances but, in reality, damn few real friends.


Which only results in being asked too many favours. If a person wants to be the Mr Nice Guy (eg Ned Flanders), they're more likely to live a life for others, many others.

A person only need 3 good friends at best, more than that really is just overcrowding.

Someone above the level of acquaintance but below the level of good friend. We have shared information outside of a contextual situation (eg. work) but we aren't involved in each others lives to any major extent.

An acquaintance: Someone whom you know only within a specific domain (wg. work, school etc)

A friend: Someone whom you know a bit about their life, and they yours, and you occasionally hang out or communicate outside of "required situations" (work, school etc).

A good friend: Not sure how to categorize this... possibly someone who is a major part of your life (for a variety of reasons) but I would say that it has nothing to do with loyalty or truth or any of that nonsense (personal opinion), mostly because I don't expect my good friends to be trained house pets, I do expect them to be people and I accept the "good" with the "bad."

Actually, I'd say that a good friend is someone with whom I have mutual respect for with no obligations attached.

So you would consider a juggling hobo standing on a street corner wearing a tutu to be your friend?

if we can laugh together, that's about my only requirement. i want to say it's trust or something, but when i start to consider someone my friend it's because we have fun together and can make eachother laugh, not really because i'm forging a bond or some shit

Someone who listens.

It's not complicated.
