Friendship and _____ness?

Picking up on Thomas's comment to my last post on this subject, it seems to me that we some sort of thingly "relationship" (a relation between things) to supplement the personal relationship (a relation between people) that constitutes friendship. (That is, I want a "condition or state" of things, not people.) The suffix "-ness" or perhaps "-ment" may be a clue.
