Over time, some acquaintances become our friends.
Friends are people with whom we have voluntarily negotiated more personal relationships. Most of our interpersonal relationships fall into the categories of acquaintances or friends.
Some friendships are context bound. People often refer to their tennis friends, office friends, or neighborhood friends. Close friends are those that we share close, caring, and trusting relationships with.
Prepare a 3-5 minute speech about your friends. Identify one person you have known for some time that you would consider an acquaintance, one that you would consider a friend, and one that you would consider a best friend.
