Yes, it is very true.. It is really hard to find a real sincere and true friend. There are those who claimed to be a friend of yours but when you are down, they are not there and they just say POOR so and so...Oh!! well, I consider them FAKE friends. I admire those who are really with me through thick and thin. They have the heart to give sympathy and help me find ways to solve every problem I have and I would do the same to them. This I considered a REAL,TRUE FRIEND. what about you? please share..

I'm strongly with you! It's not easy to find a true ans sincere friend. You can get a lot of friends, to know how's the personality of the friend, it takes time. After You know the personality of this friend, only you will know the friends can be a true and sincere friend or not.

I feel a true friend is indeed very difficult to find, because we all have human nature to hurt others or care for ourselves only. However, there are people who have been through experiences in life and they need a true friend so they be a true friend in the hope they will find someoone like themselves or just because they know that is what other people need- a true friend. However, we cannot really trust any human being, only God is our true and sincere friend, but there are people who try to follow Him and these people know God's rules concerning true friendship. Even those who don't believe in God can be true friends simply by the innate knowledge in them that teaches them what is right and wrong and how to love others and care for them in their needs. True friendship is rare, we just have to look for those whom we can easily love and those who love us back- these are the true friends. I have some. Childhood friends can also be true friends because there is a bond between them that is strenthen by time and innocence of childhood.:)

Making friendship is not important for me but it need to maintain the relation for life time, so that friendship have the value, other wise there are unlimited friends who does'nt mean the relation just come and go, and as per your words that is the real friendship whenever & wherever friends will be there all the situations.

The statement may be true. It depends on what you expect from your friends. If you have little or no expectations from them, then you will not face the issue of having to decide the trueness of the friendship. Rather I believe, look at how true and sincere you can be to your friends. That by my experience will get you the best of friends.

you have good points but..sometimes when we need a friend, we are disappointed when no body cares even the one whom we consider our best friend, has no time to hear us.

You are very right. It's really hard to get true and sincere friends. One thing is friends cannot stay with us forever and whenever we need them. Sooner or later,they will have their own life and family to take care of. Sometimes,we cannot say they are fake friends,just that this is reality of life. Cheers! I think all we need to do is be independent,don't put high expectations then we will not have great disappointments.

It needs careful consideration if a person is real and sincere to be considered as true friend.

I beg to disagree. I have a lot of of sincere friends that I could say they are real, true friend. My principle is that a person attracts those who have the same characters as he has. I learned it from one of my psychology class. It means that you only mirrors other. I have sincere and genuine friends because I am also sincere with them. But there are also that take advantage of you who are fake and insincere. What I do about those type of friends is that I just ignore them and make a new friends. They are just wasting my time.

Hi Bebs, very true,, I have several true friends in our Country and I am keeping in touch with them..I know they are there always for me and I can trust them through thick and thin,,,we have a lot of experiences in life together and we surpassed all of those! This time, I don't like to trust people easy...I will be fine with acquaintances but it takes time for me to consider someone as true friends! I have few good and nice virtual friends here! It's amazing!
