Friendship: a positive definition?

Okay, so I'm tired of seeing friendship defined (if it's talked about at all) as "less than romance" or something similar. I'm probably going to write up a post about how I see friendship, but I thought I would start by asking for your thoughts or definitions.

What, to you, is a defining characteristic of friendship? I'm not looking for what it isn't; I'm looking for what it is. And it can be something that more often gets mentioned in the context of romance, because every time love is present in a relationship there are going to be similarities.

I'll start us off with something I really appreciate about some of my friends.

A friend accepts you even when she doesn't quite understand you.
