How do you care for your friend? Do you give 100% of your trust and loyalty?

For me,if she's my best friend then I really try to give the best that I can.I will love and trust her the way I love my family.I believe that if you give love then you'll receive love in return.

Not really. I had a best friend whom I cared for, trusted upon and yet she betrayed me again and again until I totally lost my faith and trust in her. I gave her, like what you've said, 100% of my trust and loyalty but she never did. Not that I am complaining though. Although sometimes you have to give and expect nothing back, I gave and got back disloyalty, lies, deceit and most important of all, back-stabbing. The worst, she called me a "Thieving S1ut!" in school, in front of the whole school and during morning assembly when somebody stole her things.

Dear, without love and respect friendship cannot nurture or bloosom. Without trust the bonds cannot be strenthened, between friends. Mutual trust, respect and faith are integral parts of laying down a solid foundation for a relationship called, friendship. Friends are some time more dearer than relatives or family members.

I've always aimed to give my friends all the love, support and trust possible, I definitely agree that you receive love in return "treat others how you want to be treated". What could be more rewarding than loving and being loved?

Hi, i agree with you, that friends are forever, i talk of good friends and we must maintain that frindship, no matter what and give it our 100%. We are humans and do expect the same 100% back in return, and at times that doesnt happen, making us feel bad or hurt too, but i guess, if you have made up your mind and know that a person is your good friend then you go ahead and give your 100% to your friend, withouht caring what the friend thinks of you. Its tough, but if we are good and care so much, i guess with time even that friend of yours, will realise this and start giving his 100% to you too. No, it does not always happen that if we give love, we always get love in return, there maybe exceptions here, yes we always do hope for this, and pray that if we are giving love, love will come back to us too. Mostly it does, but many a times, we dont get love and keep waiting, and waiting. I guess in such case, when you realise that your love is 100% and after trying so hard, you arent getting as much back, you should leave things at that coner and move ahead with time, as maybe that freindship wasnt really true and meant to be.

I'm generally a loyal and trusting friend, but I have my moments as do we all. Seems like I put a lot of energy into friendships, though and in a lot of cases it's not returned in quite the same degree and I'm starting to realize I expect a lot of myself when treating others and that might just be too much for other people's standards.
