How would you rate a true friend?

I always have thought myself to be a good friend. When I really think about it I am great when I have time, but I don't ever have time for friends. I would hope that I am still considered a good friend,but some picky people might say no. I work three jobs and barely have time for myself. I am at work right now! I just tend to let the phone ring and I rarely find time to call back. Does that make me bad? Keep in mind at this point I have not been off work in almost a month straight. I will return a quick text message of e-mail but I never feel like answering then phone.

Hi magiccookies.. First of all, welcome to myLot. That is okay. You do not have to blame yourself because you think that you are not a good friend. If you are having a hard time budgeting your time because you are working, why not tell them the truth. At some point, maybe your friends can understand you. But I suggest that you have to talk with them or chat with them if you have spare time so that your communication will still be continued. Have a nice day and God speed!

I have asked myself what a true friend is many times, and many times I have come up empty..I have had some best friends, and people I call acquaitences, but never someone that has stuck with my through the good an dthe bad. I don't like the phone, in fact I despise the phone!! It's a nuisance, and just wkaes me up when I'm sleeping, and bothers me when I just dont feel like talking. I have made efforts, and helped many people out, and been there fo rthem, even when i didnt agree with what they were doing, but the first time I run into trouble they are gone! I consider a true friend someone who knows when you've been gone for a few days, and even if they cant get a hold of you they find a way to make sure your o.k...Love and support matters a great deal..someone you can talk to when you need it..and most of all someone you can laugh with! I think we rate each other too much now a days, on what a friend is and what a friend is and we compare new friendships with old ones where we have been hurt..including myself!

a true friend is one who will always there with me through out my happiness and my sorrow..one who will treat my problem as his and will help me too find a way to get over it..one who will always keep me happy whenever am with him..who gives more and expects less

well, true friends would stick no matter how seldom you'd see each other. If you don't feel like answering the phone, they'd understand.:) As long as they're real, they will accept you.:) I'm really a bad tempered person and one way I would know if a person is a true friend is when they don't take my moodiness against me. I'd even appreciate it when they tell me to my face what a sh*thead I am...makes me laugh.:) I'm pretty tight with my buds, I hope you're blessed with the same, too.:)

A true cannot be rated as they are too precious for a rate. I myself is guilty of not communicating regularly with my friends. But both of us are busy with are own work. But we make it to a point to send text message to each other when there's an occasion and when we think that it's been a while that we haven't communicate.
