Hi, Its hard finding a true friend,and be nice they remeber when a real friend such as myself does nice stuff for them and he or she forgets. when its time to collect on that have troubles because he or she forgets. I used to have several friends and 1 mor 2 is suffice than awhole lot of them because u do have betrayers in the midst of it all.sometimes even family suppose to be ur friends too does u wrong or forgets and that irritates me too no end too. Really truly all in all do we know who are real friends are and always keep ur enemies closer. Renee (Maine)

I expect from my friends is to accept me as I am, a good listener and a confidant. In return, I will do it them, too.

I think you should expect nothing more than a good long friendship that will last with you through the good times and the bad times. But the qualities you should look for in a friend is loyalty and devotion, as I said before someone who will be there for you through the good and the bad and everywhere in between. You should also someone who is a good listener, and someone who will always be there for you.

Hi Hari I expect from my friend of 27 yrs to be honest. We have gone through a lot in our lives but the most important things with our friendship is that we can talk about anything and be there for each other when we need one another. When she calls me with a problem I don't do what most of my family does and that is tell her "I don't need your drama and I don't want to hear it!!" I am there if it is 3 am in the morning to hear and help her. When she needs someone to come to her side and comfort her I am there. When I need her she is there for me. We can tell each other when one of us has said or done something that has hurt the other. We can say we are sorry and correct the problem. We have only had one argument in our entire relationship and it was at a time when my world was falling apart. However what I didn't realize was that she too was taking it hard because she loved me so much. She said some things to me that had me extremely upset and I was ready to just quit because I was trying to save my husband's life for 5 months and I couldn't take anymore when she hit me with some things. We talked about it and forgave each other because the biggest part was lack of understanding and communication. She needed to have surgery during this time of my husband's illness and I drove all night to be by her side and left my husband in his hospital room because she had no one to take her to surgery. We both were under a lot of stress. I expect her to tell me if I am doing wrong and if I have done something that has hurt her. I expect for her to give me the chance to say I am sorry and make up for what I have done. I expect for her to be there when I am feeling so low and need someone to talk to. She expects the same from me and therefore we have probably one of the most trusting relationships out there. She doesn't talk behind my back and has been a Wonderful Godmother to my son. She is always sending me and my children cards and letters and she never lets me down when I need someone to talk to. There are very few people in this world that can honestly say with all their heart that they trust their friend like I trust and love her.

I just expect them to be there on the worst day of my life, and I hope I will there for theirs as well...

I expect respect from friends. No matter who you are, and who I am, respect me as a human beings. If you respect somebody, you will not hurt that person, will not take advantage of that person, treated them nicely and do not think yourself higher than anybody else. I hope my friends also expect the same thing from me, respect too. Once you resepct that person, you can understand that person easily.

For me it works both ways. Friends are to be loyal and trust worthy. Friends need to support eachother when they need it the most. Friends provide a shoulder to cry on.

I expect my friends should be loyal, honest and helpful in nature. They should share Happy and Sorrow things with each other.

i think friendship is all about caring for the other person ,being there all the time for him/her..so though logically it seems there should not be any expectations but since i am a normal human being i do expect a lot from my best friends and obviously i am always ready to return any favour for his sake..i think when u really love your friends and they just dont do some things you are ought to be hurt.i am sure everyone would expect their friends to remember their birthdays,give them surprises sometimes,expect to hang around with them most of the time..and so many trivial matters..but still whatever one says i am soo suree deep down we can never stop expecting!!

Other than loyalty/trustworthiness... I make no expectations out of friends.

I expect nothing but honesty from my friends. True friendship is one that is hard to find and develop but if I take you for a friend I want you to be honest with me at all time. I see a friend as a mother,father,brother and sister and so I always treasured my friendship. If I found out that you is a liar then I will be distort and forgiving but that trustworthiness will no longer be there.

Friendship is not really about expectations .Its about liking them ,respecting them,caring for them and most importantly standing by them in their times of need.Remember friendship should never be a burden on you..you don't need to expect something from your friend..they will help you any way..If they don't they are not your friend,friendship doesn't needs to be reminded to someone..if he/she is really your friend then he will be by our side always..
