在北京,交换过名片就算认识;一年能打几个电话就算至交;如果还有人愿意从城东跑到城西,和你吃一顿不谈事的饭,就可以说是生死之交了;至于那些天天见面,天天聚在一起吃午饭的,只能是同事。

In Beijing, exchanging business cards counts as recognition; calling a couple times a year counts as best friends; if someone is willing to go from the east to the west side to have a meal with you without talking business, then you could be called friends for life; as for the people you see every day, eat lunch with every day, they are only coworkers.
