    An Aquaintence Is Not The Same As A Friend

    I see this all the time. People who surround themselves with scores of others. I've always thought it is to make themselves feel popular and more wanted. It is of course the hollowest of things since the more people you know, by default the less time you have for each one. True...

    It Is As Simple As That

    Create a "bow" with people who makes you feel well, who seems to be true. And untie the "knot" that fasten you to the ones who were significant in your life. But unfortunately, from their own mistakes, they stopped being. Knot pinches, bow decorates… "Friends" pinches, true...

    But most friendships / relationships don't stay

    the same ... They get stronger or weaker or even cease to exist along with passage of time. I remember some of my best friends from different phases in my life,yes I've almost had a different best friend for each phase, that are now just a number in my phone book. We may speak...

    What Is A Friend

    A friend is some one who will be there for you not just when they want to be but when they know you need them to be. Someone who will take time out of there day no matter how busy they are just to check on you. Someone who will let you rant and let you cry. Someone who will not...

    Friendship

    A true friend walks in even the whole world walks out... I love that quote as it summarizes everything I believe in about friendship. For me, a true friend will never, ever leave you no matter what happens! It’s not important whether he/she is miles apart from you, as a true...

    Someone who I thought was a friend canceled

    plans with me, but then posted a picture of herself with her other friend. First of all... She wasn't even invited to it. I told her what I was doing, and she asked if she could come. How is she just going to cancel plans? I'm not crying over her though. I have my own group of...

    It Never Ends.

    There's a quote "Friends are the most important recipe of life." It's not only intended for humans but with animals too or human + animals. The relationship in between is unconditional. But there's a difference between Friends and Real friends. Friends are mostly the people you...

    I once had friend whose name was Sam.

    He and I got along great and our friendship at one point turned into a "thing". The thing faded after a while though making us just friends with benefits. after a while I started to wonder if he still wanted to be friends. He was acting like it was a chore to talk to me but he...

    I have always been the type

    that can have few friends at a time. I have surrounded myself with people that I thought were friends before and the outcome was never good. There was always bickering and jealously, backstabbing and the eventual dissolving of the friendship. I hate that feeling because it takes...

    Some Difficult Time

    Would you choose to be honest and hurt someone or lie and make things difficult for them. I hate people who fake being nice but keep hurting people around them. I hate people who leave others hanging around clueless. I hate people who pretends to be my friends. It's really hard...

    If you find someone who makes you smile,

    who checks up on you often to see if you're okay, who watches out for you and wants the very best for you, don't let them go. Keep them close and don't take them for granted. People like that are hard to find. If you do ever lose them, the memories will always make you smile, so...

    .. And that's why it's saddening when a relationship I thought to be pure and forever cools off and the bond weakens.

    Some things off the top: someone who loves me, isn't ruled by self-motivated agendas, is not jealous of me, wants to bring me up instead of pull me down, keeps their word, has my back, has a selfless quality to them, understands compromise in relationships, strives for effective...

    I'm lucky to have many true friends,

    and lots of aquaintances. But what defines a "true friend"? Well, it's someone who will stick by you through thick and thin. Someone who never judges you and you don't judge them either. Someone who will go that extra mile for you, and you for them. Someone who you can tell your...

    A person can have many associates,
