There is friendship between two people when, on each side:  There’s a willingness to put out effort, and there’s an expectation to get a benefit.  Both, without regard for convenience. And both understood without having to speak.

I’ve had three brushes with friendship this year.  Five, counting family.

What I didn’t mention:  Permanence.  Mutual acknowledgement.  Joy.
