Here's how long you need to hang out with someone to be "friends"

There are so many levels of friendship.

A study published last month in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships outlines a basic framework for how much time you need to spend with someone to bond:

  • CASUAL FRIEND = 50 HOURS
  • FRIEND = 90 HOURS
  • CLOSE FRIEND = 200 HOURS

Surprised?
