How do you form a friendship?
What makes a friend?
What defines a best friend?
Loneliness...My only friend...Increases vulnerability and social isolation.

I liken it to the question people often ask about love. "When do you know when you are in love with someone?"
My response is always, "When you can't remember when you weren't in love with them."
Maybe its not quite that simple. Then again, it can't be that complicated.
