Synonyms of "Friend" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre my friend e a friend of mine ?
A: There is no difference really. It's all the same. For example
"My friend and I are going out"
And
"A friend of mine and me are going out"
It doesn't make a difference. Same meaning but different way to say it.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre "I'm friends with John" e "I'm friendly with John"? Same or different ?
A: 'Friendly with' -- When we meet, we act nicely/as friends
'Friends with' -- We meet intentionally, to do things together

People could disagree on the definition of 'being friends', but this is the main idea.
'Friendly' means you are acquaintances (who get along), 'friends' means you make time for each other.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre 'my friend' e 'a friend' e 'a friend of mine' ?
A: "My friend" is used when talking about a specific friend that has likely been mentioned before. You would also call the friend "my friend".
Example 1: I saw my friend the other day.
Example 2: I want to see you because you're my friend.

"A friend" is used when you're not being specific about who it is or you don't have a certain friend in mind. You may also hear it when someone is saying that another is just a friend, rather than a romantic interest.
Example 1: I saw a friend today.
Example 2: Tom is nice, but I don't want to date him. He's just a friend.
"A friend of mine" is a more formal version of "my friend" and is often used when the friend has not mentioned previously to the other person in a conversation or during introductions.
Example 1: a friend of mine said that this is a good place to eat.
Example 2: this is Steve, a friend of mine.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre "my friend" e "friend of mine" ?
A: They both mean the same thing, an can be used interchangeably. Although "my friend" is more common".

However the difference is that "a friend of mine" has a nuance of being "one friend of the many I have".

Like for example if you had one car, you could say "this is my car" but saying "this is a car of mine" makes it sound like you have more than one.

Just remember that it's always" [a]/[an]/[the] X of mine". You need a particle in front of the phrase.

Also, "my" always need a noun. You can say "that is mine" but you can not say "that is my". There has to be a noun after "my" because it is a possessive adjective. "That is my friend/car/whatever"
Q: Qual é a diferença entre When I came to know him, we became friends. e When I got to know him, we became friends. ?
A: They primarily mean the same thing. 'Came to know' I would consider more formal sounding. You would find that in a book. Not very people when speaking to others would use it though. I would say it's more natural to say 'I got to know him.'

Other questions about "Friend"

Q: I met your friend two times. Afterward, you and I had dinner last time.

when do u use afterwards?.?
soa natural?
A: First sentence is fine. You could even use 'twice' instead of 'two times' if you want.

In the second sentence, either use 'afterward' or 'last time', not both together.

There's no difference between 'afterward' and 'afterwards'.
Afterward = American English
Afterwards = British English
Q: 1. You need a friend who you can easily talk to.
2. You need a friend, who you can easily talk to.

I guess No.1 is okay but No.2 is not natural.
What do you think about these two sentences?
A: You don't use a comma there because there is no break in this sentence.
You can do the following instead:
"You need a friend, someone who you can easily talk to".
In this, a comma makes sense. 🙂
Q: I have as many friends as she has.
I have friends as many as she has. soa natural?

these words can be confusing-- when to use them. as a general "rule of thumb".. if you can COUNT something, you say Many. If you CAN'T count it... use MUCH.
some examples:
how MANY dollar bills do you have (specific)
how MUCH money do you have (general)

how MANY apples do you want (you can count the apples)
how MUCH apple sauce do you want (you can't count it)

John has AS MANY apples as Sam does.
John has AS MUCH apple SAUCE as Sam does.

how many pairs of shoes should I own?
answer: as MANY AS you want!

do you love me AS MUCH AS I love you?

hope this helps.
