when a friend approaches you because he/she has a problem, do you listen to his/her problems well? can you give useful advices? or do you just pretend to be listening? i think i'm a good listener. i don't just listen to what my friend is saying but i also pick up the feelings that he/she is trying to hide. i am a sensitive person and i can easily observe if somebody has a problem.

Hi alex, It is very important in a friendhsip that you should listen to your friends esp when they approach you with their problems. I got quite a few friends and i know how everyone has problems. Most of problems are imaginary and all you need to do is listen them out.They get it out of their system and it is done with. Yes i do listen to my friends when ever they come to me or call me. I love to listen and if they ask i give advise too but i am not sure if they actually follow it or if they follow then it is of any use.

It is my duty to listen to my friend's problems because they are not just a friend to hang out with but also to be in need to their need, so I listen to them,to their problems and if I see that my advise can be useful I tell them. And I leave that up to them to whether accept my advise or not.

I always like to help my friends who are in trouble . So rather being sympathetic, I prefer being empathetic. I believe that there should be some us with our lives rather than living a life of our own so I try to help others & I think that's the best I can do. So rather than Just Listening, I'll try my best to help them out Happy Lotting
