    I'm not sure what you mean by cost since in my experience so far there has never been a 'cost' in the negative sense of the word.  But as far as I'm concerned when I'm friends with someone that means I am committed to being loyal and faithful to them as far as possible, especially when they are going through hard times or are facing dificult situations or decisions.  (In the latter case I try not to give too much advice but to simply be there whatever they decide). I have never been faced with a situation where any of my friends have done anything criminal so I have no idea how far my loyalty would stretch in that scenario.

    Financially, no amount of money can buy friendship.Emotionally however, it costs a lot as it requires utmost loyalty,love and committment. You sacrifice a lot to keep them, you lose a lot when you lose them.

    Well..... friendship is priceless.

    It's not free and the cost is not easily calculated, many a thing contributes to the sum. Often it's a credit that's never paid...
    Sometimes the credit is unlimited.

    In other words- no set number.

    Emotional effort and sincerety, which are priceless.                       .

    A better question may be: What is the benefit of friendship? Is the glass half empty or half full here?

    nothing and that's why it's called friendship. if it costs you something then there is something wrong unless you concider loyalty to be a cost.

    I think Cost is t he wrong word. I keep coming back to the adage "to get a friend, you have to be a friend". unfortunately, many, many people just use others under the guise of friendship. They eventually find out that they are alone in the world.

    Is this code for "What is the cost for prostitution?"  And are you asking for that kind of service but discreetly or in the code language that only those who buy and sell that service often would know about?  This confuses me.  I think it's time to go outside.

    There's no price, in terms of money of friendship. For me, there is a price to friendship and it is trust, openness, integrity and communication, if none of those things exist, then there is no friendship just an acquaintance.
