    I have had so many bad experiences with friends,

    that I no longer trust people. I try to pleasant with everyone, but I do not let anyone get close to me. I do not call someone a friend unless I know I can count on them when times are difficult and vice versa. I still wish h that one day I will meet a genuine friend, but my...

    Good friends are rare

    because people often get along until you both or one of you had his mask off and get to face the dark side of that person or each other. The question later on is how bad that mistake was ? How much can you trust this person? Would you be able to hold on? solve the issue? or...

    friendship is happening through sharing

    experience and it may be a good one only if the shared experience is the real one.

    I need to rant. I would like a friend

    who does what I do for mine. Talking for hours or in the wee hours about one problem over and over. Giving rides in the middle of the night. Getting pissed off when someone mistreats them. Not being buddies with people they dislike. Right now I'd really like someone to...

    Real friends isn't easy to find.

    I truly believe in that. At first I have to take risk just to know if they might be sort of trustworthy people. I had encountered many and at the end, I learned that they just stabbed me in the back. It hurt me really but I can't change them. They are who they are. So I...

    Actually they are very rare.

    Most people should be considered as associates because they are really not friends at all. Too many people love only themselves. You find out quickly who your true friends are when trouble comes knocking at your door. If you have 2-3, consider yourself wealthy.

    I never really had a lot of friends in my life.

    I've met a lot of people. I'm familiar with a lot of faces. But the only people I've ever connected with are those who feel, like me, connected to the past and the future all at the same time.

    I find most people are unreliable bc loving,

    kind hearted souls are truly hard to find. you really can't trust anyone these days! I am a firm believer in that - and it's sad how quickly someone will choose being selfish and greedy over true, pure loyalty.

    it's harder to relax around them, harder to think of them as safe to love. But it doesn't stop you from wanting them

    The world is a wonderful place to live,

    and part of what makes it so great is the simple fact that people are different, every person in this world is unique and each one with his own thoughts and dreams. We all see the world through unique eyes and think differently about it

    Why do some friends start out good,

    and then seem to fade away? Why is it harder to find good friends as you get older? Is it because you're not forced to be together daily like you would have been in school? The hardest hit have been friendships with people who had children. I did not. I honestly don't hate...
