What Do Friendship and Friend Mean?
This chapter discusses the research on men's friendship, based on interviews with 386 men. How men describe friendship is first covered: being understood and having a friend who is loyal, dependable, and trustworthy are all important to men when they describe their friendships. Whether men believe they have enough friends — 40% are unsure or do not believe they do — is discussed.
