    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...

    Friendships don't crumble in a day.

    If it does, it wasn't real in the first place.

    We do not need to see each other every day.

    But it is so nice you can watch a sunset ( could be either gender and I am not speaking in romantic terms here). We were sipping a scotch and no words were spoken for a while, there was no need since we both knew we were having a great time and we were lucky to be witnessing a...

    I think the best friendships are with people

    that you don't see as friends but as family.

    I'm in a situation that is foreign to me

    because I'm not use to developing friendships online... I'm very hesitant to let my guard down and get attached. After all, I don't truly know who's on the otherside of the screen and if they are who they say they are, there's nothing stopping them from closing down their...

    A true friend encourages us,

    comforts us, supports us like a big easy chair, offering us a safe refuge from the world.What sweetness is left in life, if you take away friendship? Robbing life of friendship is like robbing the world of the sun.If you have one true friend you have more than your share.

    I really need a friend

    who understands where I'm coming from and actually listens to my point of view without judgment.. It really sucks to be surrounded by people but yet you feel so alone.

    I think of friends as another family to me.

    They are always there when I need and I can depend on them. They are the closest family when your own family is far from you. Friends are easy to make, true friends are hard to find.

    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...
