    I currently have this hierarchy:
    1. Immediate family (siblings, parents, carers, children)
    2. Significant other
    3. Best friend(s)
    4. Other friends
    5. Distant relatives
    6. Acquaintances
    7. Strangers

    Can you think of anything else? Are the categories and order acceptable? Is it clear enough?

    Thanks.

    I'm also not sure where grandparents/grandchildren fit in, because they are in the immediate family for some people and in the distant relatives for others...

    What about aunts/uncles/cousin's? Or do they come under 'distant relatives'?

    Children would be immediate family, I guess.

    It is quite subjective.
    For instance, some people are closer to their aunt's/uncle's and wouldn't consider them as 'distant'.

    Grandparents... hmm... I would suggest another category in between 'immediate' and 'distant' relatives.

    Sorry, I meant grandchildren.

    What should I call that intermediate category? Or maybe I should remove the examples and just say 'immediate family' and 'distant relatives'... I'm sure people can allocate membership by themselves.
