Yes I agree with you as its hard to find true friends these days. Most people tend to be superficial and only be your friends when they need you or they need something from you. I am lucky to have true friend in whatever job or company I ahve been with. I ahve at least one or two still in contact with and still feel the same when we were colleagues. Talking to them after a long time seems like bringing back the years and yet you still know each other and they are still there when you need them or not. Some of my friends, although we have different lifestyles and work, we still get time to eat out in dinner just to catch up on latest things between us and when one is down, everybody lends a helping hand. True friends are those that dont judge you and just accept the way you are in all your attitude, looks, personality, ways, atc. I have been lucky to have a few altough not close to them everytime and always but yes I have what can be considered true friends.

What you say is true, it is hard to find a true friend. I think that the reason behind that is lack of trust. Let's face it, in any kind of relationship, trust is important, it serves as the foundation. Nothing will come out if you don't have trust. You can't be a true friend if you don't know how to trust. The only problem with gaining trust is that we are afraid of putting our trust in the wrong person. Worry not though, you will still be able to be one and have at least one by starting with yourself. Do you know the saying that goes something like "Love yourself before others can love you"? That also applies here. You have to be able to trust others, be a true friend to even one person, then proceed from there, before you know it, you'll be a true friend to a lot of people and you'll also have a circle of true friends. Don't just settle on wishing, get up and do something about it! No matter how hard you wish, if you don't do anything about it, nothing will come out of it.

yes it is hard to find a good and true friends nowadays. but being true to yourself and be transparent to all will help you to gain more friends...not only in person but also online friends. i have lot of friends online and also offline. finding friends is also like treasure hunting so if you have friends already, treasure all of them.

Oh yes true friends are very rare to come across these days. I moved from CT to NH and knew absolutly nobody and I became instant friends with this one girl. I then became friends with some one else and she stabbed me in the back!! Now we havent talked in 6 months. I dont trust many people these days because it is hard to find a true, trustworthy person. Good luck, I hope you find one. We all can use a few

Yah, nowadays there are so many fake people who come to our life. But if just look around you can find a true friend. Maybe, it's rare but time will come and you will find it.

Yeah, I hear ya, lonely. I've moved more than once a year for the past few years, and it makes it really hard to make real friends. Right now, there are people that I hang out with, but I really think once I move again, I won't be in contact too much with them. It's sad to think, but it's true. It's just SO HARD finding people who you connect with on a deeper level, and who you really feel comfortable with. It's possible you may be able to meet some interesting people by joining some kind of a group (theatre group, a church, etc.) focusing on something that you enjoy. I have yet to find one of those groups where I'm living, but I really think it would help. In the meantime, try enriching yourself and polishing your hobbies. It really seems to help me! Good luck!

True friends are hard to find, but it is essential to look for them. True friend don't just fall out of the sky. Thinking why we don't have true friends without doing anything to find some is useless...
