    I may have my likes, I have my quirks,

    I have my faults and I have my strengths. That is what makes me.. me. Just know, I will stand with you and support you to the end. Why? because you are my friend, and that's what friends do.

    I'm not gonna say that I am mad.

    . because as you already know i don't get mad but what I am is disappointed... Disappointed that you didn't fight your feelings and I can't believe you let me go as your friend. I guess you just don't want to be my friend because you didn't even try to save our friendship. I'm...

    Friends if they are true are like guardian

    angels. They have your back when you face a bad call. They have your heart to hold when you attend life's ball. They hold your hand when you seem unsure. They help you stand tall when you feel insecure. They carry you high when you can't seem to reach the sky. They hold you...

    It is indeed, if once it is found.

    But at present it is cherished as a 'Nine days wonder.' It is like a visible warning nowadays; Make friends at your own risk.

    True Friendship Is Priceless.....so Why Do Some Friends Lie And Betray

    I don't know where to begin...but I got to get this off my chest. I have been so called friends with someone for over 9 years. We have laughed together, cried together and shared damn near our entire life with each other. So it has truly hurt me to find out that this person is a...

    I want to have friends

    that are very loving and passionate towards me. They don't need to be lesbian or bisexual, just loving. I tend to cut off women who say, "I don't judge women (looks wise)" , I will immediately cut her off. I don't have patience for women who give off a cold, callous vibe. I...

    how do you know when you have found true

    friendship? People go through intense facades to get to their goal and once they're there you get dropped like dollar in a ***** club.

    They are worth more to me

    than gold. I don't have very many, so they are that much more valuable to me. They enrich my life in so many ways and always make my day :) I hope I can do the same for them :)

    Friends when they are true are bits of Heaven

    in human form. They might not fit your mold. They might exact your norm. They are angels without wings. They listen when your heart sings. They carry you when you need to fly. They hold your hand and walk alongside when you are just getting by. Their smiles are the diamonds in...

    Someone to trust. Someone

    I have been desired. I have been loved deeply.

    But there is something about being seen as a friend that touches my heart like nothing else. Friendship offered unconditionally warms me, relaxes me, let's me release the breath I barely realize I am holding in the more complicated romantic relationships I have been in. True...

    So,what R Friends (then) 4?

    This heading in a way reflects my thinking (or is it confusion) about modern ‘friendshps’ and what they could possibly stand for. Where do they start and, more important, where will it end? We often hear people say :”that’s what friends are for . .”. and it is obvious...

    So true ..... some of my greatest regrets are

    about not bringing my friends along as life sent us on different paths. Trying to reach back 20, 30 or 50 years is like too difficult. Reaching back after they have died is impossible.

    I love my friends to death,

    I know they love me too, no matter what happens between us, we can always count on each other because we know in our hearts that we could never give up our friendships because of all the things we've been through together. Now that is priceless :)

    A friend you can count on is amazing.

    He or she can be silly while around you but cool around other people depending on what you like. Or they can be silly just whenever they want. True friendship is when you need someone to take you out to go see new places. They could also stay inside with you and play video...

    True friendship means the world to me.

    True friendship involves something called

    'agape' love. It's a Greek term meaning love that is self sacrificial. It is friendship with perfect kindness towards each other.
