3. They're There For You With Quality Conversations
Friendship is wonderful because it gives you the chance to make a cup of coffee, sit down, and talk about your passions, interests, and annoyances for hours on end. And I don't mean just idle gossip or a quick catch-up - but you can talk about the books you're reading, the interesting articles you have stumbled across, the dreams you have been mulling over, and your plans on how to better yourself. 

All while picking at a pound cake together at the cafe, or ordering a second round of margaritas at girls' night.
