Default How do you define "friend"

It can mean so many things these days... some kids will say "mom I made a new friend in school today" after just talking to the person a day... or someone will say "hey friend, how are you?" to someone online, they never met a day in their life. what does a friend mean to you.... do you have many "friends"? is it a term you separate as well... such as "good friends" or "best friends" and how do you define them if so

Well at least that's how my friends work :P
Who I consider a friend is someone I can be comfortable being myself around and can talk to them without any anxiety.

I dont have any friends.

In my mind a friend is someone within my age range that I can talk to/hangout with. Someone who I have something in common with.
I can separate friends by online, real life etc
I cant meet someone and call them a friend after one day. Kids do that lol My little sister makes a new friend almost everyday just by saying one thing to them.

*They dont have to be within my age range but its easier that way.

I think a workable definition would be that a friend is something you might never have, and a friend is something you might never be.

Then you can instead work on what you think are good qualities in any such "friendship", and you have a way out of getting hurt, because you will always keep the option open that you might not be friends at all.

I would consider a friend someone I don't worry about saying crazy **** around. The darndest kinds of things pop into my mind and if I'm around someone I am comfortable around and who I can trust, it makes it really fun and fulfilling.

To me, a friend is someone you've known for a long time and you're really close with, like a family member. Someone who doesn't judge and accepts you for who you are. Someone who treats you like a human being and doesn't use or abuse you in any ways.

And someone whom I can count on in both good and bad times.
