How do you rate your self as a friend, if you were your friend how would they feel they are treated by you, would your friends say that you are a stand up person, , selfish, loving, caring, trusting, loyal, happy, good heated, do you treat your friends as you would want to be treated? Myself, I no, I am a good friend, but there are a lot of friends who really aren't your friend for if they were they would not treat you as they do, Or is it that tthey are treating you for the way you treat them. What do you do to make a point of your loyalty as a friend.

I am a loyal and trusted friend. But at first I would not give my loyalty and sincerity as until I got to know who she really is. But when she got my attention, then for sure she got a true and trusted friend that will never leave her no matter what. This is me, sometimes they say that I am snob or what. But I'm not that. I just what to feel the sincerity of a person first before I give myself in.

Cherry, I really don't think your a snob, I think you have been burned and it hurt, so have I trust me some people love to hurt you instead of being a friend, but the thing is you give your all but at the same time do keep a little fence up, for I have had a friend for 34 years and I would have never believed with my full heart that she would ever do me wrong, but she did and til this day, we no longer speak. so time don't make it better, But It really seems as if you were hurt by someone that you believed to be a good friend to you. always remmber, not all no the meaning of being a friend. but you do, so always keep that going and then maybe someone else will catch on.

I would say I'm a pretty good. friend. I'm a really nice person and I'm become best friends with others pretty easily. I treat my best friends much differently than regular riends. With my best friends, I'm always there for them and I'm a very good listener and try to give good advice. My best friends would say that I'm an honest friend because whenever I'm asked for my opinion, I try to give an answer that looks at the problem from more than one angle. So, in the end, I think I'm a pretty good friend.

well, I would have to say that would make you a very blessed person, for you have what it takes to know how to be a friend and not only look at one side of things, You are a true gem, And I may not no you but if you know this is how your friends see you for you will get treated as your treated, so you and your friends are very blessed, Not to many have friends. I have friends, but I do keep my list very low, for I don't trust to many for I have been burned, I have my best friends that I keep close in my heart and will always be there for them. and too, the only way anyone can be a true good friend is to learn to be a true good friend to your self.

I could be good friend or bad friend, depend on how you rate me. I am mostly be best friend to anybody and even sweet too. Most of them love to being friend with me and always want to stay that way too. however just a few of them are just jealous with me and treat me different way. If I see these kind of friend then I just ignore them and move on

well, it is like this, I have friends that I really love and then there are friends that i would just say are friends, If you no what i'm saying, yes, you do have those that feel that are better then you and deep down inside they are not, but they must make it look like that, now see you treat others as you want to be treated, so, I'm guessing that your friends want to be treated like that if they treat you in that matter.

I don't know what my friend think about me as a friend. But I know I am not a good friends. Sometimes I tend to make excuses for not meeting them. The reason for this was I don't have money to spend when I am around them and its quite embarrassing. That means I am not being open to my friends, because I kept making excuses rather than telling them the truth. I just don't want them to bother about me. It's quite sad, but I am comfortable with it. Happy lotting
