- Friends for at least 5 years;
- Friends you haven't seen for at least 5 months but
- have seen several times within the last 5 years;
- Friends you have spoken to in the last 5 weeks;
- Friends who would list you as one of their 5 best friends.
It doesn't matter if you email this to everyone. There is no curse that will befall you, nor will spamming your friends with it make you rich. But it is important.
And tell your friends they made the list. They'll appreciate it. That's what friends are for.
