    I am a good friend because I am very honest, will not do things to hurt other people and values friendship.

    I guess I am a good friend because I make people laugh, but I also know when to calm down. I can tell when someone's not having a good day and can ask address it in a non-pressuring way.
    There are definitely many areas though that I can continue to work on to be a good friend.

    My love, sincerity and loyalty towards my friends. And I expect the same things to them for me.

    These are the qualities I strive for and if you have these four qualities then it would be pretty hard for someone to say that you're not a good friend

    Being a good listener.  Most of the time when someone is talking, we are so busy trying to think how what is being said relates to ourselves, we don't hear what the other person is saying.

    A friend can be with his friend all the time, but only good friend will stay with his friend when he needs him....other than that good friend should be:
    1- Good listener
    2- Honset with him self and his friend- if you friend making mistake tell him in his face that he did this mistake and he has some issues then try to help him and work issues out.
    3- Keep secrets, its so much important to keep your friend secrets no mater it was.

    I do not know that I have been, nor have I ever thought of myself as being a " good friend"...at least not as most of us would interpert the term.

    Yes, you can trust me with your confidence,  find shelter in my home......but not to remember your birthdate, your wedding anniversary or to come and play nice at your child's birthday party.  Hell, I barely remember my own hubby's!   Honestly, I ask my daughters each year, is it the 21st or 23rd.   

    They could really set me up!

    I am accepting. We all have our flaws; I will be sure to accept my friends with open arms no matter what.
