What defines a friend? Have you ever stopped to wonder what a friend really is? What makes a person a friend? How do you define one? Is it someone who you've known all your life, or maybe someone you met recently. Do you talk to them everyday, or maybe just once a week? Some would say a friend is there for you when you're down. They listen to your problems. They try to help you when things aren't going right. They're always there for you through thick and thin, good times and bad. They stick up for you when others try to put you down. Is that all there really is to friendship though? Think about it! Then you don't just have friends you have acquaintances, best friends, and so forth and so on. How do you choose which goes from one to the next. The amount of time you see them, talk to them.
