Normally,it's part of our life to have friends and you can find them anywhere.By the way,what's the real meaning of friend?Friend means a person known well to another and regarded with liking,affection,and loyalty.A very close and trusted friend who seems almost a part of yourself.Hence,not easy to have somebody whom you ever wanted to be as your confidante.As what the definition says,that's the criteria I'm looking for.?Well,I'm not an idealistic person to search a perfect one.My only wish if I made friends,she should not be talkative so I can share my secrets,my likes,about my family and among other things.In other words,she must be discreet.I hate backbiter and gossiper too,these type of people I really avoided to be with,they're destructive to a relationship.The last thing,"Through thick and thin" a friend is there no matter what.

I need a friend to share both my joy and grief and confide in. And nothing else. Just his/her friendship is the greatest gift for me.

agreed. someone who won't look at me judgmentally. someone who is of the same wavelength as me. it's hard to talk to people who don't see eye to eye with you. because they won't understand where you are coming from.
