People may come and go, as an adage goes. We may meet friends who stay for eternity or who stay for just a very short time but like everyone else, we all wan t to meet friends who last a lifetime, right? What HOW can we really find these true people? Are there signs to look for or warnings to evade from? Any thoughts on these please. Thanks for sharing!

The most frustrating stupid non government rule that I have come across is this spam prevention rule by myLot- that of preventing copy pasting. There is no Draft Storage. On the one side the infamous power outages in India are frustrating enough. Resting more faith in God's unseen hands than in the Engineers who manage power, in India, I go in to post, and three times it has been lost(after the whole post was made ready!) for one reason or the other. Please bear with my rant. That said I shall rest my faith once again in God who I have seen is the ONLY TRUE FRIEND everyone could ever have: The characteristics of a TRUE FRIEND have been stated succinctly ina poem by Bhartrhari (in Sanskrit) whose translation is as follows:

H/She holds you back from sin; he works towards your good (the poet's precise expression is "unites you with good); holds back all that is supposed to be kept secret; exposes those characteristics that show you in best light; [B]never deserts when you are in trouble [/B] and gives you any help in time and at the right time.These are the characteristics of a TRUE FRIEND the wise aver.

If you only want to know who is not worthy of true friendship just reverse whatever had been said of a TRUE FRIEND and describe him/her by dropping the 'R' in FRIEND! I am really sorry that I had posted it in three or four installments. It definitely was not my intention to increase the number of posts. I was frustrated by too many ominous portents; the rules at myLot which are more like government rules - mistrustful of people in general and discouraging to the core the inclement Power Supply in India which is less reliable than the weather.

Friends are treasures or an instruments given by God to comfort and advice us in whatever happiness or sadness we are facing..They are just passers if we will not be able to appreciate them, so we need to thank them even in our simplest way for them to know that they play an important role in our lives also as our friends..But let us not put all our trust to them for there are some friends who can't be trusted.Just be a kin observant for us not to be betrayed by them

I can determine friends those who are really in me and faithful to me those who never leave alone if talking about problems. HE/Se will be always there for me to share with not on my financial needs. Those who never fail you to the fullest. I already find my true friend and my best friend which is my MOM who never fail's me in times of problem she was there to comfort me all the time good and bad times. And you?Do you think you found your true friend to accompany with?

Well, true friends may not share detail of every second of their life, but they do try to be clear of our intentions. This means that they try to present an accurate picture of who they are and of different situations.When nothing doesn't seem right, they let you know.

A good friend is honest. a good friend may not share every detail of every second of their life, but they do try to clear about their intentions. This means that they try to present an accurate picture of who they are and of different situations. When something doesn't seem right, they let you know..

if you found someone who became your friend.and that someone is always there for you, through good and bad times.that person is someone you can trust.someone whose life is not intertwined with yours, and yet a part of your life. then maybe, that is what you call a true friend. and we can only find them through the passage of time. when you grow old, look around who has stayed with you.

To me a true friend is someone who is always there for you. One who is willing to give an ear when you need to talk. One you can have a blast with and be silly with. One who doesn't criticize you and is supportive. Someone who is honest and upfront with you and you can be the same with them. Someone you can trust. To me, these are the most important aspects of a good friendship. If any of these are lacking than I believe it isn't a friendship worth holding onto. Purrs, Catwoman=^..^= & Mija
