Friends, we all have them. Some of them are nice, some are not. Some you love, some are acquaintances. Really, what is a true friend?

A true friend is someone you can trust. Someone whom you tell everything to. Someone who can come over to your house at any time of day and spill their heart out.

True friends almost never abandon you. If they have other friends, they still come back to you. They are the people who share all secrets with you, even when they are not relevant. They wait for you at the end of the day, and you feel free around them. They don't make you feel bad at all.

True friend tell the truth all the time. They always do. If they think your bad at something they are honest. But the really true friend would help you become better. The true friend would think you were still great and not brag about anything. They compliment you even when they think someone else is better. They also don't mention someone else when they are talking about a Competition. They don't.

A true friend won't brag or pretend to be better. They always credit you.

You should always know your true friend's life. You are together forever and always.


P.S. If this is for school and not life read the following...

- A true friend is someone who always helps you, is loyal, and who never talks behind your back. They always believe in you, and never are mean to you.
