Default Re: How do you define

To me,a friend is someone that I feel close to,that is there for me through both good and bad times,someone I can be myself with,someone I can trust and count on.

And mostly,someone that I WANT in my life and WANT to be around.

*probably why I only have a couple of friends,there's not many people that fit those requirements*

A friend makes time for me, listens, cares, responds, 'gets' me, tries to put effort into the friendship

A friend is someone you find beside you in your joy and sorrow. In good and bad times. You don't have to search and reach out for them. They understand and be there for you.

A friend, in addition to many of the mentioned qualities is someone who asks how I am and truly wants to hear the answer whether it's good or not so good. For instance, are you ok? I mean really ok? Type of question. A friend is someone that cares to remember the little important details.

Somebody whose company I enjoy, someone I trust, someone I like, Someone supportive, someone I care about and who cares about me. I'm also learning that it is normal for friendship to ebb and flow, and if people aren't there 24/7, it doesn't mean they're not your friend. But if you get a bad feeling or a used feeling, or an "I don't care" feeling, then maybe have a talk or reevaluate the "friendship."

Someone who tells the truth even when it's hard and has my back when I do stupid things and I have theirs.
