Part 2: Relationship Style

Compare your results with your friends'

Casual Friend-Casual Friend: What a relaxed, hassle-free friendship! Your matching casual approaches to camaraderie make your time together easy and enjoyable. That is, until one of you either wants more or gets tight with a third party (making the left-out Casual feel, well, left out). If tension does enter your relationship, be sure to clear the air with a candid conversation immediately. Don't let unspoken resentment ruin the good thing you two have going.

Casual Friend-Best Friend: Not the most compatible pair, Best Friend and Casual have different ideas about friendship. For this friendship to work, Best Friend must accept that Casual will not fulfill all of her needs, a hard thing for Best Friend to swallow. And Casual must figure out a way to cope with the fact that she'll be letting down Best Friend, even if she doesn't mean to. While Best Friend will benefit from recognizing that not all friends need to be joined at the hip for the relationship to be beneficial and enjoyable, her high expectations will no doubt lead to disappointment and frustration and possibly the end of the friendship.

Casual Friend-Close Friend: While Close and Casual don't make a perfect pair, there is potential. The fact is, Close wants more than Casual usually gives. But Close may be just what Casual needs to learn to open up and invest in a friendship. If both parties care about each other, want to get to know each other better and have patience with their differences, this is one friendship that could really blossom.

Casual Friend-Acquaintance: While you two make a good match, yours is not exactly a rock-solid friendship. Where's the sharing? The caring? The phone calls in the middle of the night when one of you is sick, sad or suddenly single? Go ahead and hang out together if you enjoy each other's company, but know that if you don't learn to give a little (time, loyalty, trust), you'll never be true-blue buddies.
