Honesty, loyalty, a sense of humor, a deep rooted history, reliability, and love.

Wow, good time to ask this question. I just walked away from a friendship that had lasted 14 years, we had been best-friends since the 8th grade! And what I had learned was that our friendship lacked loyalty. (on her end) No matter what happens friends (best friends) should always remain "true" to each other. We had been through thick and thin, had done "crazy" things growing up, & in the end she was going to "sell me out" about somethings that I had did before I was married.So, I define a true friend as someone who will always be there for you & will remain loyal always.

Personally I think that the main thing is for them to tell you the truth even if they know it will hurt you.  My best friend is the one who told me that my scumbag ex was cheating on me and I'm so glad I believed her over him.

HONESTY AND LOVE ARE WHAT I THINK, IF YOU CANT TRUST SOMEONE YOU CANT BE THEIR FRIEND!!!! I HAD A FRIEND (OR SO SHE SAID SHE WAS) WENT BEHIND MY BACK AND AND STARTED A WHOLE BUNCH OF LIES!!!
HONESTY AND LOVE IS WHAT MAKES IT!!!!!!!

That's about the best answer I've ever heard.

I think a real friend is someone who is always their for you no matter what. A person that sees you for you. Not on that trys to make you like them!(him/her)
Someone who doesn't judge just listens and supports. Give you the best advice they can weather you agree or not. That is what I think a true friend is.

I'm with the other ladies- trust, loyalty, an ear to talk off, a shoulder to cry on, laughs, and a connection that runs deep.
