Two hundred answers to questions about love, sex, and passion>>>
This is another small-sized volume, of about 150 pages. While falling in love rises out of the nascent
state and takes possession of the individual before s/he has been able to ascertain whether love is
reciprocated, friendship grows gradually, meeting after meeting, on the basis of the reality principle.
A (true) friend is someone who understands you, whom you can confide in and trust, who is on your side and
stands up for you. Friendship is therefore a moral kind of love. Hence the definition: friendship is the ethical
form of eros. Consequently, if a friend betrays your trust, the friendship is destroyed and cannot be rebuilt.
