A friend is a person whom one knows, likes, and trusts.  To be one, you must be known, liked, and trusted by another.

:goodluck:

A friend is someone who knows what your dreams are and does everything in his/her power to help you accomplish those dreams.

my nickel...
A friend is someone you trust with your life in their hands, any less is just an aquaintance...

exactly, and I have a hard time giving that much trust... been betrayed quite a few times (with no lethal consequences, mind you, but very painful sometimes)

so I've got many acquaintances, and my wife is my only true friend. once in a while, I have another friend, but those don't last, obviously. and it's increasingly hard for me to get along with just acquaintances, superficial relationships with people I can only chat with, not really communicate; the smalltalk gets me bored very quickly

I hate it, but that's how it is...  :frown:

Aldous, I feel the same way.

At this point in my life, my boyfriend is my only friend. There are people who I used to consider friends when I went to school with them, but now I talk to them maybe once a year or so. I still consider them friends, but I couldn't tell you the simpilest thing that's going on in their life right now...

To me, there are different kinds of friends, who fullfill different needs. There are those who listen to you and give constructive criticism and who want to help and see you succeed, to me these are the most valuable, they're the serious friends.
There are also the friends who you just hang out with. These are people who are just all around fun to be around. They're physical presence makes you happy. I consider these friends more like just fun friends. They're not the ones who you go to with serious matters. That's what the serious friends are for.

It's rare to find a single person who can fullfill all of your needs in a friend, that person is a true gift. :heart:

One time, on 4.5gs of cubies and 3 grams of syrian rue each, one of my best friends and I tripped reeaeaaallly hard and broke down our relationship to being selfish attempt by each of us to surround ourselves with buffers from the outside world, and we both explained to eachother that "You are better than everyone else, but ultimately, I'm the best." It was hilarious.. telling eachother how we both see ourselves as ultimately "better" than the other.. really funny. You can't do that kind of thing with just anybody.
