24: Is friendship simple or complicated?
Show Notes

From Project BFF HQ, Terri and Manya riff on how friendship is both simple and complicated.

We talk about what we learned about social structures on What is Friendship? on How Stuff Works. What kind of structure do you prefer?

Throw in some conversation on the four core types of friendships:

  • acquaintance
  • friend
  • close friend
  • best friend

And how our concept of friendship has been altered by social media: "The process of actually 'making true friends' hasn't changed! What has changed is the blanket labeling of acquaintances, acquaintances of acquaintances, and close friends all with the same title, 'friend."

And before we close, we remind ourselves to reply to friends who have recently called or texted us. We all forget, we all get busy. But friendships do require attention.
