I haven't many friends, and the one I have, I often think they call me only when they need something. There are people I spent a lot of time together with; then they went abroad, and disappeared. So, what is friendship? Does it really exist?

I believe in friendship. Although, i cannot think of someone from my circle of friends that i can call my best friend. Yes, i know the feeling that there is a friend that only remembers or calls me because they need something from me... this is what i call needy friends. :) LOL There's this friend that always unloads her problems to me.. this is what i call unloading friends... :) LOL you see there are a lot of people/person we will meet for the rest of our lives. I would rather call them friends rather than enemies. :) So, what i need to do is just be aware on the reactions i will give to these unique individuals i'm with. It is always good to know that in times of sadness, frustrations or happiness... you always have someone beside you or someone to share this... (aside from your family of course)... :)

Well my feeling are somewhat similar to yours....I did have good friends, but I tell you that true friends are one's who stand by you even in hard time. I faced almost 2 yrs of really horrible situation at home, coz' they were not ready to accept the guy i love n same time my friends too turned their back. when they needed me, i was always there helping out but in time of my need i was alone. But another friend of mine with whom i just was in Hi n Bye terms got married n left to Australia, but did call me every weekend n till date tho she works in a reputed organization as HR Mgr, still she calls me every weekend. Can't understand what friendship really means. One whom i thought were v.close seemed to leave me, but one whom i wasn't close at all, turned out to be my best friend now.

I used to, they sometimes stab me in the back or jealousy of anything. It's hard to find the right friends these days can't trust them unless you are lucky .

I believe in friendship and I find it a very important part of my life. I have many people that I may call "friends" but really just a few that I consider very good friends. I am lucky in that my wife also happens to be my best friend, and I have two brothers that I also consider friends, not just brothers. A true friendship lasts through trials, times and distance. It's foundation is built on trust, love and common ground I think.
