How do I make friends with someone?

To make friends with someone you need to meet them at least twice. The first time you meet and give them a digital high five they become your acquaintance, which is similar to real life.

To be friends you need to meet them again on a different day in the next six months and give them a high five. To remain friends you need to meet them and give them a high five on average once every months, six because we think real friends are those who meet regularly face-to-face.
