It is a friendship among equals which will last you all your life. It has to be a relationship with equal give and take. When your friend is more intelligent than you, you tend to be the receiver - of the knowledge, of the advice, etc. If your friend is not as intelligent as you, then you become the advisor. It is what I call an unequal friendship. Such a friendship will not last long, since atleast one of them cannot understand the other's problems and feelings completely. On the other hand, when both are equals, intellectually, and even financially if possible, then they can understand each other much better, and always be there for each other in times of need. This kind of friendship will last long, really long.

a friend who slap me infront of many people than being stabbed at my back, curses me infront of my face than being talked behind me, talk sh!t and says my fault than being insulted whithout me even noticing it, leaves me but knows when to come back than being with someone whose mind isnt with me at all,friends who can hurt me but will heal the pain . friendship will last song if they are ot fake ones. who pretend to be there listening but dont care at all

Friendship : - a friend that's not afraid to fight with you - respects each other, even they don't see eye to eye but will respect each other - understands you - a shoulder you can lean on - through thick or thin, through your ups and downs she/he is still there - will not pay attention to gossip - not a backfighter - accepts who you are, true friend won't try to change you All of these are just qualities/traits a friend should have. But have you checked yourself/asked yourself do you have all these qualities/traits? For you to have a true friend you better ask yourself if YOU ARE a TRUE friend.

There is no rhyme or reason to friendship. Sometimes you keep in touch and sometimes you don't. The friendships that last a lifetime are the ones that support you in times of need, are always honest with you even though it hurts sometimes and the ones that are there to support you, love you and respect you for being yourself and not expecting you to be something your not. These friendships last many years.

As the golden rule states that what you do to others, they do unto you. This is applied most of the time and some may not. But it is very useful to me since I have lots of friends and I cherish each and everyone of them and am thankful because I am being reciprocated. I make it a point to send text messages to them, or send them emails. In our neighborhood, I am a newbie here and I got a close neighbor who I give something and she also do the same with me.

A very good friendship that involves many great conversations and shared experiences can last a lifetime. I've lost several friends over the years, but I've kept in touch with some people for about fourteen years now.
