A friend, how can you identify one if she's a good friend that could last til you grow old? People tend to go with this saying, "Friends are the one's you can count on through bad times and good times." I manage to have a good friends of mine... As far as I can tell you guys, I have a lot of friends wherever I go. I tend to be kind and good to people cause I'm friendly naturally. Friends can be just like a handkerchief that you can cry on when you're caught in bad times, a champagne that you can share good times with. Being with you're good set of friends every once in a while tend to help you reduce the stress that :LIFE: could possibly offer us. So, now my question... What can you say about your FRIEND?

A person is a good friend if he can take care of the private matters between us. He will treat me as if his own self, not doing or saying things which could harm my reputation. Is there for me to support me whenever I needed, is not afraid to tell me honestly the bad qualities I need to improve... not jealous of what I have and there is no competition between us. That is how I describe a good friend.

Thanks airasheila. Everyone has their own definition of what a good friend should be. But in this case we have similar point of views. Happy to know that.

Nice content of personal opinion JFO, I would really love to have a friend who's willing to tell you when how stupid and clumsy you are sometimes, but are there to give you a good warm hug and tell you "it's ok.". Rather than having someone who's going to tell you it's alright yet mocks you behind the back... Thanks for the response once again JFO...

Sometimes we can't really say whether the friend that we have can be our friend forever. But as long as s/he is there for us thru good and bad times, we can say that we are lucky we have them. Some are there for a short while while others who still manages to keep in touch, whether they'renear or far, are those we can say our real friends.

a pleasant day shadowluigi89, well, im in the process now of looking and meeting new friends. as i cannot talk to my old friends anymore since they have had their own life to live with now. though i still have one bestfriend with me but it seems she is so busy with her errands. so it is very seldom for us to talk and see each other. although, we are trying to get in touch thru phone calls to patch up what is happening to us.

In line with the topic, thanks for the response and your insight Sheila... FRIENDS are genuine if they are there for you at times of difficulties... We can be friends via MyLot while enjoying good conversation and topic discussions... Get to know each others differences and perhaps we could be of good friends as well... :) Nice to meet you here Sheila...

Knowing if she/he is a good friend doesn't depends not only with his/her appearance but also the attitudes she/he shows. It is easy to have friends but it is hard to have the true ones and there would only be few good friends. One good advice is that we first observe his/her attitudes, actions and how does she/he communicate with other people. Yes, I also agree that good friends are always there through good and bad times because they know that you showed them a good comfort that they will never felt with others.

Just like patrick and spongebob, a friend is always there with you (playing, laughing, crying, etc.) whatever happens. Sometimes even me and my friend got misunderstading i didn't make it in the way to make our friendship broken since it taked much time to make him/her your best/good friend (what i mean is to earn your trust and respect in each other).

I think that friends who are this good are very rare in life, and it isn't all that often that you see people who are like this. I have a group of three friends who I know are always going to be there for me in my life, and they know that I am always going to be there for them. It doesn't matter how much time goes by between seeing them, I just know that as long as we're all breathing we will be there for each other. That kind of unconditional support is so important in friendships, and is something that we should all be trying to achieve.

Welcome to Mylot!!! It wont be fair to gauge that a real friend is someone who is with you till the end... well, that is a good friend for sure... but you also have to remind yourself that friends come and go... some comes in season... and some comes in the right time... whatever it is, dont feel bad if these friends has disappeared, just remember that for once, they had been there for you.

I think that there is a fact that true friends are rather few and far between, because many are out for what they can get for themselves. Therefore, I do cherish the few friends that I do have. And really, everyone should cherish friendship, because it is something that is not born easily. At least unless one is lying to themselves. Let's just say that there are many people that I can get along with, but there are not that many people where I would consider them to be friends. There are just times where I can count on them right through the thick and the thin, the bad and the good, just to be there. And most of the time, I turn around and there they are, right to help me.
