I have a hard time delineating, in my own mind, between acquaintances and friends. There's lots of folks who I've hung out with several times, who's names I know, whom I know lots about, but are still just folks I know through somebody else. How many times do I need to hang out with someone before they stop being somebody I know and start being my friend? Or is that line crossed not after a certain amount of time, but after we've shared certain experiences, or after I come to trust them with things? It's a difficult question for me. Can I really start calling someone my friends if they don't consider me to be their friend? I don't know. People are hard.
