You could, but it would be messy since you and I could be friends so
who has many?

Start here:

http://agilewebdevelopment.com/plugins/search?search=friends

Find one that only requires a single row in the database to indicate
you and I are friends as opposed to “Philip is a friend of Thani”
and “Thani is a friend of Philip”.

Last time I did this I used
http://agilewebdevelopment.com/plugins/has_many_friends
. Worked well for me.
