Hi there! I have true friends. They are my best friends from high school, one is my childhood friend, one is my cousin and the last one is the man that I married. I beleive that it is possible to have true friends. Yes, sometimes, people have their selfish side but in some people, that rarely happens and in instances that the other party understands why because they totally deserve whatever it is that they are working to get.

Yes, it's possible to have true friends. I would define a true friend as someone who accepts and likes you just the way you are.

no...its not impossible..i love having many friends..but though...i give levels to my friends..like i have acquiantances,friends,best friends,long time friends,or the like..i mean,i have many friends,and i treat them like my brothers or sisters..but of course,each of time,i believe should be treated differently..on to what kind of treatment you will give should depend on you..like me,i have friends that eventhough we are not physically together,they are here in my heart.and they are always remembered..and those who are always with me,is also treated in a different way..i really love my friends..i cannot live without them..i love sharing stories,thoughts and ideas to them..they are my inspiration

Yes, I think it is possible to have true friends. Here are some tips to remember. 1. Not everyone is perfect. 2. Forgiveness is not only a word, but an action. 3. Don't hold grudges over the small stuff. 4. Stick by your friend no matter what. 5. You have to be willing to be a true friend in order to have a true friend. 6. Your true friend can be your spouse!My very best friend is my mother and my husband. I have other friends that are very dear to me. We have all been into a disagreement at some time or another but have overcome those obstacles. I believe that a true friend will still be your friend even through the hard times.

I don't have a whole lot of friends, but I have a few. I'd say that most, if not all, of my friends are true friends. I enjoy being in their company and we always have fun together. I personally don't think it's impossible to have true friends. Is it difficult to find some? In some cases, I'd say yes. But I consider myself lucky to have some true friends.

what you told about anyone has a selfish side is true.sometimes they envy you for what you achieved and try to let you down.. i have only one true friend and he never lets me down .he always been there, through joys and pains..but because of the closeness or his presence or aybe i know that he would always be there for me i took him for granted.. actually, i didnt notice it not until he gave up for ive completely change just for a certain guy. for me its a tragic incident..tragic because as of now, i cant still move on from our pasts. every now and then i still cherish every moments that we shared and that is the only thing i regret most. losing someone as good as his.. it is not impossible to have true friends but its very rare and hard to find..

I do have true friends and i believe them with all my heart.. Two of my best friends are from the age of three years old when we were admitted to the boarding together and time has tested our relationship and i have two very good friends now in my college who has stood by me through up and downs and i always don't need to speak out to make them know my mind..they can understand me as well as my family..Its true everybody is selfish but so are our mothers but can you question their love or truthfulness?Hope you get true friends very soon and have a nice day!

There is a difference between true friends and acquaintances. Most of the people you may say are friends are simply acquaintances. Friends are people you can trust with a secret. People who will not steal from you EVER. People who come over to play cards or watch a movie. People who have similar interests. Friends don't judge, but do tell you when a decision you have made could be a bad one. Friends don't date your ex unless you are cool with it. It's very much like falling in love to find a friend. True love and true friends. If you have one or two good friends, you are lucky. The other people in our lives are nice, but if you can't lean on them when your life falls apart, they are really just a way to spend time, aren't they?
