Okay, the topic is friendship.

Friend – noun: a person whom one knows and with whom one has a bond of mutual affection, typically exclusive of sexual or family relations

How do you choose friends? What do you expect from your friends? What do you expect to give them? How long does it take before you call an acquaintance a friend? What’s the trigger? How do you react when you have disagreements with your friends? What has made you give up on a friendship?
