    What are some of the qualities of a "TRUE FRIEND?"

    We all claim that we have friends or associates, but what qualities determine or sets apart a good friend from a bad friend?

    They don't lie to you and they always know the right thing to say.I think honesty and loyalty are the most important charachteristics in my friends.

    Never judges
    There for you in good and not so good times..
    Likes you for YOU.. titles, labels, vocation irrelevant.. for YOU. And not for what you have or what you can do

    Bad weather seperates good freinds from the rest. This has been in my experience to be the only true test. When your chips are down and you need help, only true freinds step up to the plate.

    A true friend knows their place.

    They do not attempt to tell you how to live or conduct your life.

    They're respectful and honest.

    They're not users,leeches or deadweight hanging on to your coattails to catch a free ride while trying to block your shine.

    Don't lie on you then go around spreading lies and untrues.

    Your truest friend, is the person you can rely on when the chips are down. If you every got arrested at 3:00 am and were given one telephone call, the person that you would call, is you truest friend!

    When I tell my friend of an arguement, a distress, an uneasiness.......etc.......be it about my mother in law, my spouse, my boss etc........

    I DO NOT want my friend to simply join in, singing in background.  I want a friend with the gumption to stand  up and say........." you  might be looking at this from the wrong view, see it from his, her, their side".

    My " friend" must stretch my mind, not echo it.  Otherwise, they are just a person that I happen to know.

    My friend must be strong enough to say, " I can't help.......but I might know someone who can".

    My life is not about easy fixes.

    Really not sure what the answer would be to this question. I do not have friends. I only have family. So if you gain my trust and vise versa, then you become nothing less than family.

    A true friend will go out of his or her way to give to great advice.

    They won't gossip about you constantly or try to damage your reputation. They will let you know when they're concerned and do their best to stick up for you when you're in trouble.

    A true friend is someone who likes you for no reason and is helpful if you need help.
    He or she will definitely not take advantage of the situation when it puts you in an unfavorable position and would stand up for you if someone else is not being friendly.

    But generally if someone is a friend then they should be a 'good friend'. Otherwise they are not really friends.

    A true friend is one who is honest, trustworthy, understanding, who shares your happiness as well as sorrow,  who loves and respects you and who is your well wisher at all times.

    A True Friend:
    1. Knows a lot about you yet ACCEPTS you for being you. But never condones something bad;
    2. Laughs and cries with you and shows that he CARES;
    3. UNDERSTANDs the predicament that you are going through.
    4. His is the heart that listens.
    5. Most of all, whether you need it or not, a true friend just LOVE.

    A true friend is always there at the time of need. He will never ask for any favour  from you and if any one  is found criticizing about you, he will stop him from such act. When you are passing moments of sorrows  he will be looked  more concerned  as if  he  was  affected. Last but not the least, he will stop you from doing anything wrong.
