I recently learned that someone I considered a friend did not yet consider me one (that has apparently changed since them but still) and that made me question myself on the meaning of friendship. Do both side have to say they are friend for a true friendship to devellop? what is a true friendship anyway? What are the criteria for a true friendship. Is it when you tell each other secrets? When you are willing to tell a lie for each other? Just when you are very confortable with the person? Can you really make a line where a person on one side of the line is a friend on the other side he is not?
Personally I don't think so. In fact I think that the "line" between friends and aquintance is vague and change for each person you are in contact with. You know with person one you might be friend when you are confortable with him/her but another you would never consider yourself friend with him/her. It lacks a small subtle thing that I could never point out. Am I the only one like that? Do you have clear lines for friends and aquintance? well that my first question for the day.
