Friendship is a true love, not a hate. Friendship is a pleasure.

I have met a few women where I live now, and I can honestly say that not one of them have ever respected my boundaries, my family values, my responsibilities to my life and family or even come close. Bottom line...where I am from I've never known this type of woman or person. Maybe an occasional taker, but that's it. However, I still feel the need to be kind to others but stay away from this type that you think you may be helpful to, but really you're teaching them it's ok to treat you like crap.

I go to the doctor's in another town far away, and I was in the store one day last week, and I ran into a woman who I started talking to. We hit it off very well. I went to her house for coffee and stayed for a couple of hours. My story is this that day I knew I found the best friend I will ever have. She's compassionate. She already knows me quite well, and she's a wonderful person, and this is for you, Rosanna.
Love you, KK

This is an absolutely fantastic poem. A true friend is one who asks you what happened, even when we are laughing. ..and pretending to be all right?...Life just seems to be impossible without a best friend...

TRUE friends isn't all about bracelets and key rings, it means when someone is there no matter what. Don't think someone is your friend if they don't think about your feelings. And if they make fun of you or say stuff behind your back. Or don't believe you when you say something. If that's what friendship is between you and your friend then forget them and find a true friend!

True friendship is based on mutual trust, respect and concern. A faithful friend is a sure shelter. A true friend is something beyond price. So choose your friends with care.

What a true friend means:
A true friend is there. When she isn't near. Can feel all your fear. Knows when you're in your lowest time of need without saying a word just knows it. Not afraid to help when you can't do it at all. Give a hand without wanting a thing. Understanding you at your weirdest and never asking why. To believe in you no matter when you don't. Knowing that you'll do the right thing when you're in the wrong. Make a stand with you not matter what cost is. To find the good in you when everyone said the bad. Not ashamed of you. No matter where you go you just know you're OK even facing danger. To forgive the unforgiven. To say I love you and mean it. Never leave your side.. FRIENDS ASK YOURSELF ARE YOU?????
