it is in reality that people choose people to make friends with. they have the reasons why they choose them. how about you how do you choose your friends? do you choose him/her because he /she is rich? what are your basis of choosing your friends?

I don't care if a person is rich, when I make friendship with the peson. The important point is that the person should match my preferences an intersts. I don't like to be friends with a person who is very bossy. I also hate people who take advantage of help. I take time to understand people before I make them friends.

i agree with you, i also don't like friends who is dependent, bossy and take advantage of my personality. what i want in a friend is that we can have the same likes and dislikes and we can agree even in complex situations.

hi rosey, I am not choosey when it comes to my friends. I can befriend a prisoner LOL if only he will not kill me LOL joike.. I can befriend those people which I think who has a true heart. Yes in reality that happens most they choose those people who are rich to be their friend.others would do that to build connections. But you can really check who are your true friends in times of troubles. who are those friends who are ready to help you and being with you thru thick and thin. Other would say you have to choose your friends because you will be influnced from them. I am not a beliver of that..because its your will to get influence.. If you have principle you will stand by it Happy mylotting.. cheers

but sometimes friends can influenced you being a person, for example if your friends is a good, respectful, honest and obedient, while seeing those characteristics somehow you can be influence with all that he is displaying and also the opposite of those behaviors unless you have the strong personality that nobody can influence you. but still it is good to have many friends whether rich or poor.

you'd have to be pretty pathetic to be friends with someone just because of their money. my friends are my friends because I enjoy their company and they are good people who I care about. money doesn't matter in friendship.

yes i agree with you. for me i did not consider money in choosing my friends. what matters to me is that we can understand each other in so many ways.

I don't choose friends. I go out with anyone as long as we go a long with each other very well.. I believe that having good friends are base on their status it's how you compliment each other despite of your differences.. That's what i feel..

the best thing to consider in choosing a friend is the character. there is a saying that goes "tell me your friends are and i will tell you who you are".

a true friend is the one who is there behind you to support you all the way from ups and downs of your life. and in return you must also be there for him.

NO...I rather to have friends that is not rich or shall I say average...Coz some of that rich people don't appreciate small things but those people who are an average they appreciate small things and they treasure each passing moment that you spend together...

yes sometimes rich people cannot understand the goodness of a poor people it is because they never experience it (but not all). so its better to study the character of the person before devulging your secrets to them. consider the attitude.

No. Hannibal Lecter might be rich. I usually get friends by having the same interests. We're not going to agree on the same things. And my friends get an idea when they meet me that I will speak my opinion on things without hurting anyone's feelings. And I understand that my friend might do things I don't agree with or I might catch them in a moment when they are not feeling right or might be angry. There might be a time when they might be mad and hurt my feelings. Just so it doesn't start to be a habit. So I observe potential friends, see how they treat others (I don't like hurting people). I won't befriend anyone who likes to hurt people or themselves.

correct i like your ideas, we should choose potential friends who will not hurt our feelings. i want a person who treat me good as i have treat him also. even if he shines with richness but if he will treat me like slaves or hurt my ego, i will befriend him immediately.

Hello rosey19 I choose my friends very carefully I like to know that people genuinely care about me and my feelings, once I know and feel this then that makes us richer then most. Thanks.

Hi rosey, It's so nice to have so many friends so I don't care if he/she is poor or rich as long as we respect each other and do no harm. But when it comes to trusting a friend, that's the time that I become choosy. I don't divulge everything to all my friends because I really don't know what is in their minds.

yes we can have thousands of friends but we should also limit our secrets in life to those who can be trusted and who can keep a secret for the longest time no matter what happen, and that is a true friend.

Rich or poor does not hinder the friendship.It is the like minded people in many aspects make friendship.One of my relative boy was studying in engineering college.He was poor at that time. But he had his friends, they are rich.they helped him with the books and other materials for his studies.

I know of someone who makes friends by going out with them to bars, restaurants and she is always the one paying. but in reality she is lonely, they don't even like her because there's something bout her attitude that irritates them. therefore, money could nit guarantee a true friendship. I don't make friends just because a person is rich, it's the attitude I look for and whether I am comfortable hanging out with them.

yes it's the attitude that we must consider in choosing our friends. he can be rich but annoying person. it's not really a guarantee being rich because they might just used you or makes you slave.

I would never ever make friends because of that very superficial reason. If you make friends because of that, I would not consider that as friendship. Like love friendship holds no reason. Friendship is being with someone that understands you and cares for you and loves you like a brother or sister. I'm not picky when it comes to friends but I test them, on what type of friends they are. Even if I only know you too little the best way to tell if you are a true friend is that a share a secret. After sharing that secret depends on how you keep it and how you react to my secret. If a friend knows how to keep a secret and does not judge you for the deep dark secret you share. Then that is a true friend. It's a simple but hard way but it really allows me to separate friends form acquaintances :)

if you base your friendship with money what if there comes a time that he cannot give you or lend you money? do you befriend him for that? that is why i agree with you money is not the basis for friendship. the most important is if he can be a trusted and loyal person.

yes richness of a person is not my preference in choosing a friend, he can be rich but he is not that type of person who can help you with your problems. friends are not only for money which sometimes they can help you but so much about it, there are some situations other than money matters that only a friend can help you.

i really dont care whoever they are. i dont care if they are rich, smart, pretty or not. im not into famous people but im into those whom i can be with all the time whether during sad times and happy times nor for good and hard times those people whom you can count on and never leave your side no matter what. thats why it called friends

financial status of the person is never my basis in finding a friend. i will always go for someone who have the same interests like mine and someone trustworthy and loyal. i don't think that money is important, when all you really need is someone you could talk to and get along with.
