There are probably as many definitions of friendship as there are people in the world. Everyone is entitled to their own view of friendship, but it's important that your view is in sync with that of your friends.

This quiz focuses on how I define friendship. Not the surface things that we may or may not have in common. But the basic needs and communication styles that I consider to be crucial in my friendships.
