I would define friend as somebody you would get along with, and to have something in common with. I like having friends. They mean so much. They are like family to me. It's like adopting a new family member to my family circle. :D

It means loyally sticking by their side through thick and thin. Good times and bad. Providing a listening ear and a ready shoulder to lean on. To attempt to cheer you up when you're down. To make you smile instead of frown. To love you unconditionally.

Friend is a person who helps us whenever we are in need.I strongly belief in a proverb "A friend is a need is a friend in deed". He can understand our feeling and tells us what is wrong and what is right.He is one who makes us to move in a right path and also when we are in depression he is the one who gives us a helping hand to solve them easily.

a friend is someone who doesnt judge me of who I am, and listens to me when I need someone to talk to.
