According to Aristotle, there are three types of friendship: those based on utility, those based on pleasure, and those based on virtue. All three types may exist within a single friendship, but Aristotle believed the best type of friendship is the one that encourages virtue (or goodness) in both parties

If it’s your friend, you’ll probably smile through gritted teeth and continue to go to coffee together. When her name pops up on your phone you’ll groan, but you’ll reply every time. You’ll be stuck in this relationship for god knows how long, all because it’s too awkward to break it off.
