I value a friend who will laugh with me, keep all my secrets, love me in spite of all my faults, defend me, and have my back when the fight breaks out!
Loyalty is a trait that I see as invaluable and is a curio in life. A plethora of friends I have had in my life and only a few remain by my side. One can be mendacious, cheat, and plunder but if faithfulness remains adamant, I will still consider them near irreplaceable. There are other many other wonderful traits, mind you. Nevertheless, fidelity is extremely scarce making it worth being sought for.
Loyalty and honesty make a great friend. Especially the honesty part - sometimes you want to ask opinions, and to me, the BEST friends will be honest even if it might hurt. The best friends don't just tell you what YOU want to hear.
What I most value in a friend is that no matter what happens. If you lose contact and reconnect, or if there are a lot of changes going on in your individual lives...the relationship stays the same. You can always count on that person.
I can forgive or over look just about anything....except lying...I don't care what about..I always need the truth, if my friends or relatives can not provide me with the simple truth I have no time for them.
Trustworthiness and the ability to talk things over with me if we hit a rough spot. Also supportiveness but trust first and foremost.
That they will always be there for you. They understand and accept you for who you are. And of course, they love you :)
What I value most.. Not just for a friend but to every person is being TRUE.. I love frank people.. Honest.. I want a friend who would tell me that I suck at this and that.. And friend who would tell me I look so ridiculous,I act stup*d.. I want to hear negative things about myself.. For I want to be a better person.. A friend that I know everything comes from the heart .. Not just because he/she want to makes you feel good but he/she really mean it... =D I just want to meet a friend who love himself.. And I would just accept each difference.. =D
The same thing as with family: That she listens and I also get to listen, that she has such character that she is with me in thick and thin, in life and even after. My best friend is with me because of her heart, words and loving spirit.
One word says it all, because! TRUST!
