Along life,we classify people in our lives differently. I personally classifications in: friends, and acquaintances. It takes years to build a friendship, and only a few moments to destroy it. There are people who we see rarely, but they jump to help you when you need, and there are people with who you are always and in need ...they disappear. We live in a century of speed. We are bad friends, proud, and forget the simple things that makes us happy . Slowly we become robots without feelings. A true friend is the one who feel you and understand you without words. You don t like him because you can talk with him about all kind of topics, but for his ability to keep quiet at the right time. For matters not that they can carry with you a discussion super interesting and great intellectual, but that you are together. It's one that when you ask something you do not respond to questions like "why?" and "what?" he always says "no problem", even if it is the biggest problem. It's always the one who do what you want, not how or what he wants. Is that for which you are able to die or to kill without staying too long on thoughts. Are there real friends? You have a true friend? not only persons who say "hi" you, or with who you gossip, or have some personal interests, that is to make common cause with someone against someone else ... and ready is your friend. Do you believe in friendship? You have a true friend?

I do believe in friendship. I have a friend that I met online and her and her husband are way older then me but we would do anything for each other. I have helped her when she was in a bind and she has helped me as well. She is an artist and has sent me lots of her artwork. I have friends that help me and I help them through thick and thin. But like you said there are some people that you help and never see them again.

Your right friendship is built. I am very nice person to all people until they do wrong. Then I am not so nice. But yes I think I am pretty lucky to have friends like I do. I am friends with most people. And another site I am on think I am very kind and nice to them. I get a lot of messages sent to me because I am there for them when they need someone to talk to when they have a problem or just want to talk. I have helped a lady for Christmas this past year because she didn't have a thing for her kids because she didn't have the funds. But that is just the way I am to people.

I have a theory in this subject . It`s true on me, but it can be true to you too . Here it is : I belive that friends are not forever . Now to explain . When you are a child, you have a best friend , after you`ll go to school, maybe one of your classmates will be your best friend . When you`ll go to high school, you`ll have another, at college another, and so on . Even if you will still talk with your past friends, every time, will appear new ones . The old ones will be still friends, but just " on paper " .

I've never believed in friendship, I do believe in being a good neighbor. Over the years (I'm 76)I have always been careful not to get to close to anyone (except my wife of 54 years)It seems to me that I have benefited from being my own best friend. When things got tough, I have always known that I could depend on myself, to come through for me. (when you want something done right, Do it yourself!)

hello! yes, i do believe in friendship, because I have many friends, and some of them are my friends from the beginning itself- when I still was in the kindergarten! I believe in friendship because I know how important it is to make me feel better in the moments of sadness, friends can really help us feel better and forget the worries. friends are something so precious, that I treasure all my friends and believe and trust them all the time

in life you will meet different kinds of people, some only acquaintances, other will become your friends but there are really who becomes your true friends. its the people who will accept you for who you are without questions and those who care even you are far apart. I guess I am lucky to have two of them.

Friendships are not unconditional. A life-time friend is hard to get, simply because there are really rare cases when a friend stays with you no matter what... Let me explain what I mean... these are just a few variables in the equation: A friend is someone with which you share common interests - for how long are the interests the same? Keeping a friend means constant communication on subjects that are interesting to both - friendship fades when communication fades. Friendships are usually depending on location; it depends on how long you can frequent the same location, or the locations that both enjoy. Sometimes friends make you resistant to change, supposing you want to make a big change in your life. Friends come and go, depending on one's sociability. Life-time friendships are idealistic and sometimes not very advantageous. Many times it happens that common history keeps people together, but is that a real bond between friends?

Yes I agree friendship is for lifetime. I have it only one in my workplace.I can say that she is my best of all because we will friends for 15 years and we did not ever mad at each other even one time. There's one I've tried to test if she really be a best also but time goes on after two years her attitudes showed to me. And I noticed it that she just like me because she can use me, lend some things and ask whatever. But if time that she don't need me she talks about me at the back. And it happen that we came into the instances that not understand each other only on simple things. She don't admit her mistakes and I'm in the peak of upset then we got some mis understandings. She is just an acquaintance for me.

True friendship can be eternal. There are people who will be friends in this life and beyond. However, the fact is that so many of us will ever experience true friendship in our life. Friends come and friends go in the blink of an eye. Very few things last forever and are as special as I declared. We might think that we have true friends that will never drift away. However, the truth is that people drift apart. Go different directions in life and rarely see each other again, despite thinking that they were true friends at one time. Others stick together through the best and through the worst, but as I said, it is few and far between. Friendship for a lifetime and perhaps beyond would be a great thing, but unfortunately, there may be little chance of that happening. Of course, the fact that there is a chance, however small, does kind of inspire hope within us.

Yes, I really believe in friendship for lifetime. This is my second year with my friends and till now we all share our emotions with each other. Not only we just share our emotions but we try to console each other, if someone's sad or if someone is happy, we share the joy as well. And if someone is in any kind of trouble, we don't say that you that that mistake, why should we be punished for it, instead we stay together and fight that problem together. And I really think that we'll be in touch throughout our life wherever we are. Because we are really close friends. It has happened that some new friends have been coming but they are not the way we are. We are 3 close friends and till now we didn't find any other who can be our another close friend. So, I truly believe in life time friendship! Happy mylotting!

this is sad but true: every person can turn against you provided there is personal gain for them if they do turn against you. i don t believe in friends forever cuz i ve proven this time and again. although i have friends right now, i don t consider them the type that would last. and i m never looking for one that lasts. i don t have trust issues. i just call it being safe from deciet or putting an iron shield on my back.

As far as I am concerned, I think I will usually believe in friend ship so much. I think I hope to have a friendship for a lifetime. For me, I have a lot of close friends who usually can give me a lot help in my life. I can get the need as soon as possible. A true friend require your all to it.

Yes I am blessed with a true friend or as I like to call him my gift from God and my Guardian Angel. I have been friends with him for 9 years now. My mom and I met him when we went back to church in 2001. He is the deacon there and we met him through Bible class. Two years later my mother had a stroke and passed away. If it wasn't for my deacon who supported me through all of that. My relatives weren't as helpful as they could be because they knew my friend Scott was helping me. I wouldn't have made it through that it was the worst moment of my life. I was very close to my Mom. Ever since my Mom passed away in 2003 no matter what Scott is always there for me. He is always willing to help me even when he is very busy. I am very close to him, his wife, and their kids. I never had a brother and he has become the big brother I never had but always wanted. My mother also was able to witness a lot of things he had done for me so she knew that I still had someone to help me out. Or just be there to talk to. Also he holds me in check and doesn't just agree with me and say you are right. Which is also a sign of a real friend. I can call him anytime and he is always there for me. And that is a two-way street. He is a lifelong friend and I am looking for many more years of great and blessed friendship.

I do believe in friendship. But though my whole life I had problems with this. Like in middle school and grade school I always had trouble making friends when I got older it seemed like people were always coming in and out of my life. Then when ever I lost a friend I was always devistated like if something went wrong . But it took time to realise you can always make new ones.
