i just saw an interview on tv and the host ask the guest something like... "how are you as a friend?"...and it makes me think... i am also asking that to myself now...how am i as a friend? for me, i think i am a type of person who only have few friends...but once you are a friend to me or once you become my friend you will always be a friend to me...no matter what. i am a type of friend who don't forget...maybe some of my friends might forget me, but me, never... i don't know how my friends will assess me but i hope i can be considered as a good and trustworthy friend... so how about you? if you will be ask that question...what will be your answer? how are you as a friend? thanks for sharing! have a good day!

DO i even need to answer on this question?? lol =D I'm sure that u should already know without me responding to it directly.. hehe BUt out of courtesy, i will still be providing some clues on how my frenz think of me, being their fren ^_^ Well, i'm someone whom wont and dun forget true frenz.. I will remember all their help to me, appreciate whatever they have done for me.. Thus whenever possible, i will try to make things easier for them, convenient for them I will treat my frenz the way they are treating me.. So far, all my frenz are fairly good and nice to me.. Thus, when we are around, especially close frenz, i will be sure to crak some jokes to get them laughing and enjoy themselves.. hehe

hehe, well that's good to know! actually if they are really our friend or have been a friend to us, even if they do us some mean things, we can still forgive them in a way...hehehe coz i think true friends can forgive and can give another chance... so okay nothing to be scared of and so i will continue enjoying your humors...

From cradle to grave people enjoy the warmth of my friendship. I am there for all my friends come rain or shine, like a huge banyan tree sheltering even the passers-by. Friendship is something beyond the literary meaning. You live only once and so live to the fullest.

Hello friend, I had few friends,i seldom go out and no night life eversince.I hate crowds and i hate noise.I only attend parties if badly needed,and i prefer to celebrate occassion with my friends here in my house,so i don't need to leave my kids. And i am choosy with friends,not becoz i am a choosy person,but becoz,i wanted a friend who i can trust to. As a friend,i can say,i am a kind of friend who will say what's on my mind.I will tell you that you are wrong when i feel you are doing wrong,she can accept it or not,it's up to her,but i won't consent her wrongdoings. I am honest and my life is an open book to my closefriends whom i really trust.

hi jaiho! i think you really are a good friend! for a good friend is the one who will say the truth to us...the one who would want just the best for us and so he/she is not afraid in telling us what they are thinking and how they feel in a certain things... i guess that's really an important aspect in friendship...be open with each other's feelings, be honest and trustworthy... thanks for sharing...

I don't really thing I'm a good friend. I think I'm a good acquaintance, but can't really be a 'good' friend. It's because I value my family more than friends, I value my freedom and having my 'me' time more than friends. I could definitely say so because if friends decide to go out, and I don't feel like it. I would surely not go. I would always have second thoughts to hang out, because I'd just rather be a home. I'm a homebody truly and there's no greater feeling for me than to have the time to just stay home and do nothing. I'd even consider going out if it's with family than with friends. But it doesn't mean I couldn't be a friend. I just would like to refuse the title of a 'good friend' becauase I'd rather be a family member. I don't know, that's just my preference.

hi laydee! i understand what are you saying coz i myself is also like that...i am also more inclined to my family than to my friends...actually my family is my friend...and maybe that's why i only have very few friends...i don't usually go out with them right now, most of my friends are the one that i know from school...but even if i am more to my family, i am still be here for my friends...and like what i have said, once my friend, always my friend...even if we don't see each other much.. well with you, there's really nothing wrong for being like that...maybe you just feel like your family is your friend...

hi, ckyera. I don't know how to answer your question because I,my self, is not sure if i did good to my "friend".(grin)As i remember when I was still studying, I was so picky in choosing friends. In our school campus, there's one group of friends I hate most(not all members,some our my team mates), I can't explain why... she became my friend after I finished schooling, but until now I can't fully accept her as my "friend".(my partner wants me to be friend her).My "my friend" knows that i don't like her much, she know that my family don't like her either. My partner doesn't want me to communicate with my old friends.... he hate them. This is one of the reasons why we always fought.

haha..its quite confusing... how the two of you can be friends when you don't like her and she knows that? and why your family don't like her? and why your partner don't want you to be friends with your old friends? when for me i think the old friends are usually the better one?

she became my "friend" due to school organizations and other school activities. My partner asked her if she can accompany me wherever I go.(she's a loner now and some of her friends betray her.) My partner doesn't like my old fiends because they're all party goers(i badly missed them). My mom and my elder sister don't like her because she is not physically blessed.

I told her that i don't like her to be my friend, I don't like her friends either. and I told her that it was my partner's idea to be friend her and we often fought when it comes to her. That is why most of the time I'm rude to her.

Hi ck! I would say that I am good to my friends and once I've befriended a person, I make sure that our friendship should last and my friend should not forget me in his/her life. I'm friends' friend. I try my best to give respect and regard to my friends and donot feel like hurting any of my friends. My friends repose faith on me and they trust me and if they give me any responsibility, I do not shy away and try my best to fulfill the same. I think by now, you would have also got some idea about me, as a friend, what is your opinion about me?

Hey ckyera! As for me I'm a very protective friend. I'm the one in front whenever they're in trouble, I'm the one who fights for them. I have a lot of friends as I am very friendly. I make sure they are okay. Now we all have different lives and families and yet we still consider each other friends. We don't see each other that much but we know we still are friends. Real friends don't really have to meet every week, every month to stay friends, real friends don't even have to say a word to each other. They just understand each other.

wow! that's great! so you are the protector of the group! i agree with you that real friends don't really needs to see each other always to stay friends...for real friends stays in our heart and memories...and yes you understand each other... maybe that's why my friends from school even if we don't see each other for quite a long time...in our hearts we know that we are still friends! thanks!

I don't have so many friends, and when I was in university while many people would like to ahng with their groups of many, I will alone or only one friend is with me. I'm more comfortable that way. I'm not good at socializing but I am a very helpful friend. I don't know how to reject a friend request and once I be friend with somebody, i will keep remembering that person. Well, that's me.

I consider myself to be a good friend. I have very few close friends because I like to be able to devote myself to my friends, but I also have lots of acquaintances. I like to be able to be there for my friends whenever they need a listening ear or any kind of help. It's just the way that my parents brought me up. I've been friends with my closest friend for the majority of my life and we are still as close as we can be despite the 1000+ miles between us now.

My best friend says that "I am his best ever friend". He treats me like his own brother. So I think I am good as a friend.

I don't if i can answer that kind of question to my friends. i mean, it's hard to be specific, but i can say that am good and okay. if they do care, they would probably text me and asked how am I doing and when can i visit them...

i know that i am a really good and trustworthy friend. many times i woke up at night and went to my friend to talk, because he feels bad, or wants to cry on my shoulder.. i always try to help if it is possible from my side. i have only few friends, really friends and i know a lot of people very well, i sped my time with them, but i do not think that they are my friends.. i always remember all my friends from my childhood or people whose was very nice persons but our friendship's way seperated... :(

Because i'm not very sociable so i don't think i have many friends. However in different period of my life i always have had a few good friends. they helped me a lot. I think in my friends eyes i'm a sincere and kind person. I'm clever and i always can help my friends too. I can help them to analysis the problem they have and have a good suggestion to solve it. i have good dressing style so i can be a good companion when we go out for shopping.Also i'm generous with my friends so they can always get good treatment when we are together. I suppose my friends felt safe when they were together with me.
