At what point can you call someone a friend? - August 28th 2017, 03:04 AM

Nothing to add, really.

What news from the West, O wandering wind, do you
bring to me tonight?
Have you seen Boromir the Tall by moon or by starlight?

I think that's really subjective! Some people consider someone a friend as soon as they get to know them a little bit. I think that I personally take a little bit longer; maybe I consider someone a friend once I've gotten to know them and like them and am sure that they enjoy spending time with me also. I think it really depends on the individual.

Like it was said, it is quite subjective. I have acqusintsnves, friends, and close friends. Within friends I have family friends and personal friends. WI think personAL friends there old and new and I might describe a friend as active of another friend as an old friend but not as active anymore. Acquaintances has the potential to go into friends but that has to do eit how thInga unfold. But not everyone will think of it this way.

I think this is a little different for everybody. Personally, I have different "levels" of friends. I consider someone a casual friend if I enjoy spending time with them and make some sort of effort to talk to and/or see them on a semi-regular basis. I consider someone a close friend if I feel comfortable talking to them about things that are going on in my life beyond basic details or things that aren't too personal.

foreign hearts & exotic minds compelled her.
she had a gypsy soul
and a vibrant heart for the unknown.

Like Sammi said, it's different for everyone and I have "levels" of friends as well. It really depends on my comfort level with that person.
