Usage notesEdit

Unlike its other Romance cognates, this word may be considered by some to be less personal than prieten, falling somewhere between "friend" and "acquaintance". Prieten should be used for a closer friend, while amic can be used for someone you are friendly with, but do not know particularly well.
