Are you know her/his name? If yeah mean true friend. Your friend was talking association with you everyday or help you for safe/solve means true friend. If your friend was occasionally talking with you or said not to good morning/good day/ good bye/ good night means not true friend.

a real friend is someone who accepts you for what you are. Even if at times he or she acts strange to you, yet at the end of the day, he or she converses with you and shares to you topics anything under the sun. Its just a matter of being comfortable with one another that you can really tell that a person is a friend of yours.

A friend to me is one who will stand by your side all the way through something tough or you need to accomplish. A friend is one when you get in trouble he/she does not rat you out. A friend is a person who cares and loves you and would risk their life for you. A friend is a person you can trust with ANYTHING you have or tell them.

A true friend is just someone that u can never see as a stranger. U can do the weirdest and strangest things together. Makes jokes without even saying a word. To know a true friend is shown in how much both people understand each other. Like if they fight everyone once in a while it just means they are very close that why they fight a lot. For me a true friend is just anybody i can be myself with. Where i can do whatever i want i not have to feel bad or make someone else uncomfortable. A friend to me can easily see my flaws in a different light and make me look as good as i know i am. PeAcE!

friend is a person who we feel comfortable & natural while we are with him/her, and trust him in high level, feeling a need to be with him in difficult time and great happiness time and general harmony in way of thinking , level of knowlage and high level of understanding but also you should know that nobody is world is perfect, you ask yourself what are the negatives of my friend that I can ignore, deal with it maybe change it and what are the other negatives which can't ignore so you will not make friend who has some of these, and you should appreciate that you friend or new friend accept your negatives

A friend is some one you trust and you share with. Someone that you are closer to than most people. We all call the people we meet online friends and some are but for the most part it is a label we chose to put on someone. The longer we know someone the more of a friend they become. And through different experience and how they back us or whatever shows them as friends too.

For me, a real friend is a friend always by my side when I get stuck. Besides, we have the same interests, habits. We can talk very long time about everything.

Friend is a person about him you can say that you know him well, as much as you know yourself. You regard him with affection. A friend is a person you can trust him. You can confide in him even the most closely guarded secrets. You find his company enjoyable. You miss him when he is not around. He is the only person you can share your joys and sorrows with him. You know he would always be around in the time when you need him the most.

A true friend is hard to have..a friend which accept you as what you are but try to change you negative qualities and also he/she is more demanding about you..he /she wanted you to be on the top so he/she may feel proud ..without any selfishness and mean...is a real and true friend .

a friend is there for you no matter what. they will keep your confidences. there actions more than their words will show they are true friends. you stated your friend won't always share everything with you and seems to be a stranger. well, you can show your friendship and respect that they may not always want to share everything with you and that is ok. as a friend, i would speak to your friend your feelings about how you feel. if they won't accept or talk about this, or they don't act like a friend,--then i would move on to someone who will be my friend.

Hi Peace, For me the real meaning of a friend is someone who would be there for you when you are at your lowest and he is someone who will give you much needed affection without questions not even expecting anything in return. But a friendship is never a one way street because if your friend is the one in need, you should be ready to do the same thing for him and be there for him to comfort him and tell him he is not alone and you are with him all the way without questions not even expecting anything in return. No ifs, no buts, no excuses and no turning one's back. Have a nice day!

friend is person whom knows well and is fond of, a sympathizer. and that is true. I can say that is a friend, if you know each other much enough, you can already call him/her as your friend. even they go far from you can still say that they were your friends.

A Friend is person you know well and regard with affection and trust.My definition of a true friend is someone who is going to love me for me. The good times and the bad. They can find out my past and still love me. They are there to listen any time I need to talk or cry.They will not tell any of my secrets unless the secret is endangering my life.They can be truthful with me regardless of what it may be or if it hurts my feelings. They don't talk about me behind my back and they stick by me no matter what unless I have done them wrong.They don't end up disappearing from my life without good reason and we remain close. They would do anything for me unless it was something super unreasonable for them to do. In other words, they would give me the shirt off of their back if I needed it. They must have a kind heart and hold their friends close to it all time.

Sometimes at one moment that person will be your friend but if ever they will be gone for some reason then you will be shy to approach that person. But as a matter of fact a friend should not be a stranger in the sense that during your friendship you will accept, understand, trust, honest, loyal to each other despite of the flaws. But normally there are people that suddenly we become friend whenever we met them at some places.
