Friendship is a relationship between two or more people who hold mutual affection for each other. Friendship is a stronger form of interpersonal bond than an acquaintanceship. The study of friendship has been studied in academic fields such as sociology, social psychology, anthropology, and philosophy. Various academic theories of friendship have been proposed, including social exchange theory, equity theory, relational dialectics, and attachment styles.
