    How would you describe a true friend?

    A true friend is like a diamond, not Cubic Zirconium; they pass the test of genuineness.

    True friend is one who understands you or he/she is loyal to you.true friend must believe on you.must be with you in every moment whether it is happy or sad moment.true friend is always caring.true friend stops or warns you before you are doing something wrong.last but the most important thing about a true friend is that he never do back stabbing.

    One I can go and have a beer and a rabbit with when we want, I can ask him for help when I need it.  He never, unbidden, sticks his nose into my business.

    A true friend is the one who is still standing at your side when the dust has finally settled and all others have given up.

    Someone that is there for you as you are to them.  They accept you and love you for who and what you are and even when they express disagreement they will back you up in the end and support you.  Someone who knows your negative qualities and loves you for them. Trust and honesty and communicating to you things you may not want to hear and being patient when they need someone in their life to be.  The one standing there in the end for you when you need it is the one that is your true friend.

    A good friend is someone who will give it to you straight, and not let you delude yourself. A good friend will stand up for you even if you're wrong, and tell you that you're wrong afterward. A good friend does not judge, nor does a good friend disappear. Above all a good friend is loyal, true, and there for you when you need him, and when you don't.

    The definition of a  true  friend is not about finding the similarities but  it is  about. respecting  the differences.  I remember a beautiful line about the value of a friend   that ”when you are walking alone, you wished that you can reach the end of the road, but when you are walking with your friend, you wish the road never ends”

    I believe there's no such a thing as a "TRUE" friend because for me, a friend is always true and if s/he isn't it means she's not your friend.  A friend is a person who loves you unconditionally and accepts you for what and who you really are.  S/he is always there for you in good times and in bad.  S/he will never leave you no matter what happens.  Distance will never be a hindrance for the both of you to love each other.

    A true friend will agree to do you a favor before asking what the favor is.
