A Real Friend

Friends - Taking care of each other is important.

A simple friend, when visiting, acts like a guest. A real friend opens your refrigerator and helps himself (and doesn't feel even the least bit weird shutting your 'coke/Pepsi drawer' with her foot!) A simple friend has never seen you cry. A real friend has shoulders soggy from your tears.. A simple friend doesn't know your parents' first names. A real friend has their phone numbers in their address book. A simple friend brings a bottle of wine to your party. A real friend comes early to help you cook and stays late to help you clean. A simple friend hates it when you call after they've gone to bed. A real friend asks you why you took so long to call. A simple friend seeks to talk with you about your problems. A real friend seeks to help you with your problems. A simple friend wonders about your romantic history. A real friend could blackmail you with it. A simple friend thinks the friendship is over when you have an argument. A real friend calls you after you had a fight. A simple friend expects you to always be there for them. A real friend expects to always be there for you! A simple friend reads this e-mail and deletes it. A real friend passes it on and sends it back to you!

I have a real friend and she is always there when I need to talk to her. She sticks by me through thick and thin.

I have few friends, but they are definitely the best i have ,, i dont go for quantity i go for quality, remember the saying "Tell me who your friends are , and I tell u who you are." be careful in choosing friends, because friends come and go!! or better yet go for the BEST Friends youll think that they will stick to you for better or for worst

Thank you so much for sharing. This is so true and very touching. This also works with close Family members when they are close to you they do all the things mentioned as a real friend a family member who does the things as stated with a simple friend is obviously someone not close to you at all. Once again thanks for sharing this special discussion.

That is so very true. Unfortunately, I have a few family members that aren't very close. But it's their loss, not mine. Thanks hon.
