  3. friends should always be there even when they cant if they are true friend , to me a real friend is someone who will do things with you that they dont normaly do just because they are your friend true to you, I chose friends that are honest caring kind with a sense of humor take life as it comes

  4. Friendship is a give & take, like a Marriage really.
    Some of them can be all take and very little give, those are unhealthy and destructive, and will eventually Crash & Burn.
    I have been in some difficult friendships and have learned the hard way, still I go into every friendship with the same exuberance and am always hopeful for the best till they prove Me wrong…! Then I cry a little over it and move on when it did not pan out!

  6. Well if I don’t like people then I’m not friends with them. Many people have lots of pals, mates, acquaintances and so on, but we have few true friends.

  7. I like people and most people are just cool. They have knowledge, spirit, energy, and many other quailities that are admirable. As the old saying goes, there are no strangers, only friends I haven’t met!
    You will only lose your friend status by lying, deceiving or in any way harming my family, my friends or myself.
    Best!

  8. Decidir ser amigos é uma questão de simpatia, ou seja simplesmente acontece. É muito bom ter amigos de verdade! Os que gostam realmente de você e vice e versa!
    Abraços a todos!
    Mina!

  9. ‘Good friendship’ …. you enjoy being with the person, you are happy when you are with them but you show not everything of who you are.
    ‘Close friendship’ … Goes deeper, the person knows you inside and out, the good and the bad and it’s all okey for both parties. Almost like soulmates but not quite … I suppose 🙂

  10. I would say that mutual interests and someone who holds the same life vision as me. I try to befriend people who value the same characteristics within people. My friends are by background different, but seem to be very optimistic about the new people they meet. To the same point, we tend to find the same people untrustworthy. Similar judgement in character seems to be a common thread between those who I really call my friends.

  11. i think good friendship stay ever after.
    but if your other friend needed some thing from you he will stay with you untel he get it and then go away like you dont know each other, no calls, msg, msn…..etc.. and that hurts sooo much… it happened to me and all my friend just went when i believed in them and i make them my best friends…..

    so i try to forget them and to be careful in choosing my friends next time…..

  13. I never decide anything first. You just meet people and their personality is amazing, and I will try and be their friend. I don’t have any criteria to go by. I feel everyone person is amazing and could always be a great friend, so I don’t look for anything particular.
