“Friends are people who know a little bit about you, and like what they know.”
Anonymous There are many types of relationships you can have with others. Some of these relationships come more easily than others, but all of them can be characterized in one way or another. For example, an acquaintance is someone that we meet for the first time and they don’t share any personal information with us.
They might ask about our job or where we live, but nothing too deep. On the other hand, friends are people who know a lot about us and still like what they know. The relationship between friends and acquaintances is a complex one. Acquaintances are people that you know, but don’t share any personal information with.
Friends on the other hand, know all about us from what we do for work to how often we go to church. While this may not seem like much of an impact at first glance, it does have its benefits: if anything were ever going wrong in our lives (a bad breakup or something), they would be there for support.
However without these types of relationships our life wouldn’t really feel complete. Nerd alert: When someone knows more than just your name (without being an acquaintance) it’s called a friendship; likewise when you want them around so badly.
