Friendship describes the relationship between two people have a large degree of affection and respect for each other. Typically, friends will enjoy the company of each other on a regular basis, and provide assistance if one is in need. Friendships tend to be formed either as a result of an ongoing requirement for people to be in contact with each other (for example at school, at work) or as the result of common interests.

Friendships often have different levels based on trust and the strength of the feelings between those involved. A casual friendship, in which participants usually do not feel great amounts of affection towards each other, is often known as an acquaintanceship. In contrast, a relationship involving great depths of trust and warmth, often developed over a long period of time, is referred to as a close friendship, and its participants may be known as "best friends" (this term is somewhat inaccurate, as in modern society someone is able to have many best friends, thus negating the comparative adjective). At its peak, a close friendship is akin to love, and indeed friendship is an important part of any monotonous relationship.


Think about your high school alumni Imagine there is one girl who laughs and smiles all the time to everybody, is never down and always helpful to others. Another one is always making a sad face and hardly does anything good for other people. Years later, who will be remembered? When you want to make friends with that person, even though everything about you is bad, you try very hard to find something good in you and bring that to her. You bring your most precious secret that you never told another person, and tell it to her to make friends. True? - Rev. Sun Myung Moon, In Yun and Encounter [1]
