So what would you consider a real friend? I would consider a "real" friend as someone that is there no matter what. Someone who will be straight up with you whether you are doing what they think is right or not. I know that alot of the emails that people send out is if you are my frind you will do this but a REAL frind doesn't care if you send it to them or not because they already know that you are their frind without the stupid forwards. I consider my friend not only my friend but my Best friend and sister (even though there is no relatin between us). I would lay my life down for her and I believe she would hers. That is just a thought on what my opinion is on a true "real" friend!

I think.A true friend is the meaning of true and fair.Many friends,true to have a few? At a time when you need she will appear in your side,give you encouragement,to help you.I think people now are amare of their own.I very much hope that I have a true friend.I use my own heart in good faith to call a friend.I have taken advantage of.Therefore,I fear.Friends can not care too much.As long as we know.Do not ask a friend what to do.As long as you need,she will be around you.This is a friend.

I so agree with you. I have only 2 true friends and I know that both of them have been and will always be there for me no matter what. They would both give up their lives for me as I would for them.

i completely agree with you.. A true frnd is always there to guide us and help us through rights and wrongs. Sometimes blood relations are not so cooperative as fnds are..

Actually A friend is also someone that you may lose touch with from time to time. It doesn't matter how long you are a part when you meet again you don't miss a beat it's like you never were a part. You're right real friends do come to you in time of need, but then another I would do that for a lot of people it's just my way. Or a real friend can finish a thought you have. Someone is truely lucky if they have at least a handful of true friend. You should in fact feel extremely lucky!!!!

a real freind is someone who will be there no matter what day or what time it is, they will stand by no matter what you are going through. always there to help out. and someone that you can be straight up and honest with no matter if the truth hurts or not. i've been bless with some best friends in the world. after i got hurt and was laid up for over a year. when my wife worked through the day we had a friend sit with me, took me to the doctors and therpty, and when my wife worked night we had freinds who came and helped with dinner for the kids, clean the house. and we had guys came over on weekends to get the kids to do yard work for us. this is what friends are all about

A 'real' friend is someone who is true to you always, a friend you can rely upon, who is not there just to make you feel good but to make you a better person, a person who does not care about what you do for him/her but is there in your need. I am proud that I have 3 such friends in my life. We have been together forever and I am sure we will be together no matter what.

The real and best friend in one's life is the person who will hand out when you are helpless, can remind you when you are in your mistake, can comfort you when you are unhappy, can share with you when you are happy. The real friend is the person just a little inferior than your lover, only a little lower by one grade than parents, the real friend, can accompany you to live for all your life, until for ever.

Hello tebattles and Welcome to mylot. I thought that our discussion was very interesting and I just felt the need to share some of my insight on it. First off what or better yet who I would consider to be a real friend, someone who is a real friend is there for you no matter what. Through the good and the bad times that you guys may share. A real friend is someone who is completely honest with you when the honest is needed. They always can be counted on, a real is someone who is going to cry with, support even though they may not agree with everything that you do. A real friend loves you without any conditions at all. Areal friend is more like a close relative. Most of my real friends I consider them as my sisters, we tell each other everything, we are a strong healthy sisterhood. Our number one rule is that we do not ever let guys come between us. I can actually say that I would lay my life on the line for my sisters. Well tebattles my words are running short! Until next time NakitaLikely3617 is out! Hopefully you enjoy mylot and be safe and be blessed.
