Friend

What is friend? what is a true friendship? can only girl and girl become friend? can only boy and boy at the same age become friend? How are we to choose our friends? What does the Bible say?
“Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you” (John 15:13-15). Jesus is the pure example of a true friend, for He laid down His life for His “friends.” (http://www.gotquestions.org/true-friendship.html)
A friend is one whom you can be yourself with and never fear that he or she will judge you. A friend is someone that you can confide in with complete trust. A friend is someone you respect and that respects you, not based upon worthiness but based upon a likeness of mind. (http://www.gotquestions.org/true-friendship.html)
According to Cambridge dictionary, a person who you know well and who you like a lot, but who is usually not a member of your family is called Friend. When two people are friends, it is friendship.
To you? what is friend?
Personally, friend is the one who I could share sth with. It starts from common interest such as exchanging ideas, hanging out, eating, drinking, singing, dancing, playing games etc. Then, it leads to teamwork through working on challenging things. We fight, we disagree but later on we reconcile. We share the same joke. We share what is going on. We help each other. When we see sth wrong, we tell, we face. We try our best to avoid lying or misunderstanding. We trust each other. We don’t take one for granted. We don’t hurt each other. We encourage one another. In short, just love other as yourself. I love you as myself.
My question is who could become my friend? just a girl? just a woman? not a boy? not a man? not a married guy? not a single guy who has a financé or girlfriend?
How come? Friend is friend. Even though we have a different sex, born in a different year, have a different position or status, it doesn’t matter. I’m your friend and you are mine. How can you say that man and woman could not become a close friend?
When we were young, you didn’t say that I couldn’t become your friend? when we studied together, you didn’t say that I shall not stay close or sit next to you. I shall not talk; shall not laugh, shall not smile, shall not look at you. When you fought, you didn’t say that I shall not fight with you.
We are friend. Friend is friend. If it is God’s will, we could not escape. If not, even one has tried every hard, it is impossible. Can’t change. When God made you. He must have been thinking about me. He knows that we could only be a friend.
Am I not your friend? or just a girl who is sitting next to you?
Feeling like being used.
