How is the word friendship lived and defined in our culture today?

The meaning has changed with time, just like so many other word meanings that have grown, shifted, and evolved during the years of speaking. Common usage commonly replaces original meaning. The current definition for the word, friendship, according to Dictionary.com is:

1. The state of being a friend

2. A friendly relation or intimacy

3. Friendly feeling or disposition

harmony, accord, understanding, and rapport. Friendship, then, is the state of being in harmony and accord with another or the relationship of rapport and understanding with another. How often do we live that with the people we call friends?
