    How do you define true friendship?

    What makes a person a true friend, would you take a great risk for a true friend?

    To me a true friend is there for you no matter what. Someone that you can laugh with and cry with. Someone who will calm your fears and celebrate your victories. Someone who shares themself with you. Someone that, no matter how long it's been since you've spoken, you can re-connect with and it seems like yesterday. It's someone who understands your quirks and someone who can be brutally honest with you when they feel you're wrong about something. true friendship is truly hard to find, so if you are indeed lucky enough to find it, don't let go.

    a true friend knows the worst about you and loves you anyway, never judging, always there. when people ask me such questions i always answer using Samwise Gamgee from the Lord Of The Rings trilogy as an example of what a true friend is, someone i strive to be.

    A friend is someone who you never need to say you are sorry to.

    Risks are not worth taking for anyone.  True friends will always supply the desires of each others heart.  The minute anything becomes a risk (or you feel like you' re taking "a risk".)  Somewhere in your mind that person on a whole is in question.  There' s no need to force or second guess your thoughts when dealing with a true friend.

      I should clearify what I meant by taking a risk. If the true fiend is the one at  risk would you you stand by them and accept the same risk.
      Thank you for your answer vonda.

    I think true friendship involves having friends who love, honor and respect you. They may not always agree with everything you do, but they'll continue to support you, while encouraging and lifting you up. True friends want and bring out the best in you.

      Veronnica- the kind of person you're describing would be the kind who is still standing at your side when all the dust has finally settled. Thank you.
