just friends?

A friend told me about an article he read in the AARP magazine. It was about a movie that apparently depicts friendship. The reason he mentioned it is that the article had a bit in it about four kinds of friends: must, trust, just and rust. The categories and their creator are listed at the end of the article HERE.

A must friend is the first one you call with big news.

A trust is one you can count on, but not quite in your inner circle.

A just friend is one who is an acquaintance.

A rust friend is one who has stood the test of time.

This bears thinking about. Who are your must friends? Who are your rust friends? Who, among your trust or  just friends should you cultivate deeper relationships with? To whom should/could you be a must friend?
