1. People equle friends. there is a contain chemistry with friends just as in a love relationship, therefore contect with other peoples is the first building block to grow a friendship, friendship can't grow in a vacuum, best friendship take time. 2. Talking is essential amoung friends. talking between friends requires reciprocity. In a mutually satisying friendship both friends talk and both friends listen. friendship talk appropriately to each other. 3. Friends acknowledge friedns. friends acknowledge eachother when talking. many conflicts in your personal relationships can be avoided if you will take the time to acknowledge other's feeling and points of view. 4. Friends listen to friends. listening to friends in an important step in building a closer friendship. we ofter take listening for granted, never realizing what it means to really listen to a friends. 5. Friends attend to friends. friends focus during conversitions. friends pay attention in conversation. it means your ears, your eyes, your body and your feeling are all focused on the person at the time. 6. Friends show empathy with friends. empathy is identifying with your friend's feelings and seeing life through your friend's eyes. confidences are freely give when thay are received with empathy amoung friends. 7. Friends touch friends. touching is a warm form of communication between friends. when you see best friends communicating, you will notice friends "listen with their eyes" stand close together, and touch comfortably. 8. Friends peaise friends. affirmation is a powerful tool for growing a friend, genuing peaise can affect your friend's lives. be liberal with peaise for all of your friends, including your casual ones. 9. Friends are loyal and trustworthy. trust and loyalty go hand-in-hand for friends, friends can trust you with their secrets, both large and small, because good friends never break a confidence. good friends are forever loyal! 10. Friends are equle. friends are no a seesaw. in a healthy relationship, friends are equal, not 50/50 every time, of course, but with a true, lastening friendship it always even out in the end. 11. Friends reveal their feeling's. we feel closest to our friends when we are suffering together, when we feel like our friend need us, or when we feel a friend as shared something of great importance with us. 12. Friends do not mind read. the person who thinks, "if you really liked me, you could read my mind" can not have an adult friendship. no friend can read your mind. and you can not read your friend's mind...this is the twelve ide's of me can you guess that am i right????

nice. but i feel true friendships are those when we were kids and had no thoughts on any sort of selfishness or jealousy from any of our friends. but as soon as we grow up we get somehow more concerned about ourselves and rather try keeping friendship at a good level with our cunning ways so that the other doesn't feel of any -ve vibes in the relation.
