American Sign Language: "friend"
The sign for "friend" interlocks the index fingers twice.
Some people do the full movement for the sign "friend" when signing "boyfriend" but my suggestion is to treat this sign like a typical compound sign and drop the second movement in the sign "friend."
BOYFRIEND (full version):
GIRL-FRIEND (compound version):
GIRL-FRIEND (full version):
Link your index fingers to show a bond. Pull it forward twice to show the bond is not easily broken.
