  1. Acquaintance: They ask you help them move their desk.

    Friend: They ask you to help them move to a new apartment.

    Best Friend: They ask you to help them move a body.

  2. I was interviews by a federal investigator once who was doing a background check on a friend for a high level security job. The investigator came to my home for the interview. They determine how well I knew my friend by asking if 1) I have ever been inside my friend’s house, 2) if I have ever eaten a meal with my friend’s family, 3) if I knew 3 names of my friend’s other friends.

  3. Once you start seeing each other in setting different from where you typically interact. Like I’d say a coworker is a friend once we start hanging outside work or a neighbour is a friend once they stop by to share a beer and chat

  4. This is what I consider to be a friendship.

    When you start talking about your family. Not your immediate family your extended family your cousins aunts uncles etc.

    I usually consider people friends if we talk about anything other than school or teachers

  5. As others have pointed out, you’re asking for the definition of friend. I suggest a dictionary.

    ​

    a person whom one knows and with whom one has a bond of mutual affection, typically exclusive of sexual or family relations.
