1. Do you consider friends an extension of your family?

In my case no. I would have a different answer if I were younger. Having no immediate family makes that question easy to answer.

2. Would you confide in a friend more than you would a family member?

Yes. I would feel more comfortable confiding in a friend. Somehow I feel they would be less judgemental than a family member.

3. How long have you known your best friend?

Approximately 60 years! Since high school. But now only contact is via Facebook and very infrequent visit. We live far apart.

4. Do you believe distance has a negative effect on friendships?

Not in my case.
