@tmarie – i think you are right to be selective as to who you let in your life. as for the last part– depends on what you mean by “half a friendship” — if you connect with that person, enjoy their company, and trust that person; then work, distance, and other barriers will only limit your time spent together, not how valuable that time is.. quality over quantity — however if “half a friendship” means that you don’t really connect with or trust that person, then i have found that sometimes there are people that you can be friends with, you just have to keep them at arm’s reach. you dont have to completely let that person in to your life, in order to be civil or enjoy each other’s company…
to put it simply– relationships aren’t always black and white.

i leave you with two quotes

“for the first 18 years of your life, your family is chosen for you. but you choose who your family the rest of your life”
-my friend

“love all, trust few, do wrong to no one”
-william shakespeare
