      No body is truly your friend, people always have a hidden agenda; they want something from you. You were born alone and you are gonna die alone.

        I am sorry for you.  You have never had a true friend.  Albeit they are one in a million - but there are people out there to be trusted with your heart.  I know because I am one and I have 4 of them... Way more than any one person deserves.

        I don't know about 'nobody is truly your friend'.  I can name you 3 guys right now I'd take a bullet for and they for me.  We don't become friends, we make friends.  Your real friends never judge you, they celebrate you.

    "A friend in need is a friend indeed". Whenever I'm asked to define the word "friend", this childhood saying I smothered my high school slum book with, comes to mind.

    A friend who never quits on you when the going is rough is a real friend.

    Friends are the ones you can count on to be there even when it isn't popular to do so.
    Friends know your many flaws and accept you lovingly anyways.
    It is good to have a friend for if one friend falls down, the other can help them up. Holly

    A friend is one to whom one may pour out all the contents of one’s heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that the gentlest of hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.

      Sex is not for people who are single that is not married.  It may not matter to most people but it still matters to God. Sorry the fact God does not send a bolt of lightening to everyone every few minutes does not  mean God approves.  People have sex and find out after they depart the planet whether they face punishment from God  In order to avoid any punishment (and it is up to God to decided whether or not to give out  punishment to those who have sex outside of marriage) whoever he/she is has to find an authority above God.  Please do not all rush at once with the answer.  Think it is God he/she has to answer to.  After he/she is dead.  Whenever that day is.
