Hello ackars. I really have no specific characteristics to list down with regards to friends. There are so many things we can say about the kind of friend we are looking for. I'm quite fortunate to have two best friends whom I've known since we're 7 years old. We accepted each other's flaws and weaknesses. I don't need to scream out their names so they can hear me. They are always like a shadow lurking behind me ready to jump on my side when I needed them. They were with me in good and bad times. I think I have described precisely the traits I'm looking for in a best friend.

I think your best friend above anything be loyal which should include trust.

Some of the characteristics of a best friend to me would be: someone who likes me for me someone I can be myself with someone who is fun to be with through the good and the bad someone who forgives my mistakes someone who doesn't give up on me someone who never judges someone who tells me the truth when I need to hear it someone who listens and understands me someone who values me someone who will be there for me when in need that's all I can think of at the moment :)

Usually friendship is not a intentional act, it is always unintentional. Friendship comes just like sleep, we can not say at what time, we slept and friendship also cannot be pinned at a given moment.Friendship comes of its own. In true friendship there is no conditionalties.True friend is always on your side, in joy and in sorrow, no personal benefits, only spirit of sacrifice.
