0189B: Of Fair Weather Friends and Otherwise

Do you ever think about what makes your friends truly you friends? What separates casual acquaintances and folks who just seem to share similar interests with you versus those that you truly value and hold dear? Do those same people see you in a similar regard as well?

Are they only friends because you had that fun that one night and thus added one another on Facebook? Or are they friends because they support you when you need it and you know you can count on them for strength and love?

Sure, everyone has different priorities and consider different things to be important. But isn't it only fair to see a bit more effort even just once? How long should one wait before one should just accept that it's not going to happen and one should just move on?

When your friends only just tolerate you, why should you tolerate them?
