To find someone to trust and to call a friend these digital times it is hard , but it is harder to maintain the relationship. friends do matter, they tell a lots about yourself to others. “Show me your friends and U will tell you who you are” and it is a correct sstatement, we need friend/s ut it is rather hard to find one these days, we are not going out as mucg as we use to, and if you go out on your own you will rerurn back home on your own. the flerting does not exist anymore.
To find someone to talk to it is impossible as they stuck their faces on the smartphone and if they see you talking to someone they think you re weird.
Technology has many benefits but equal downfalls, people don’t care as much as the old days – keep refering to the old days and it does make me feel old – but as the world moves forward so do we.
how importand is to have a friend ? do you need one and why? Some thing friends comes with trouble and better be on your own who gives a fuck about friends, others support the idea to have a friend oor two because friend is someone you talk to about everything, they do not judge you and no matter what they are there, is that right?
Invite your friend to hang out with your family. While it’s possible to have good friends that don’t necessarily mesh with your parents and your siblings, if your friend gets along well with your family, that’s a good sign. If your friend enjoys hanging out at your house, and your family enjoys having your friend around, it’s a sign that your friend feels comfortable around you, and you can take what they’re saying at face value.
Watch for signs of “using.” Just got a car in high school, and now you’re suddenly “friends” with lots of people who didn’t give you the time of day before? Often, people will act friendly when they want to get something from you. It’s usually best to avoid these types of relationships. Users will flatter you and try to make you feel good with their attention, but won’t ever be willing to hang out with you when the circumstances aren’t right.
Watch for signs of jealousy. Sometimes, friendships can suffer from jealousy, especially if the two members are at different points currently. If you and your good friend both made the volleyball team, for example, but you made varsity and your friend didn’t, your friendship can start to suffer. But good friends can learn to look past a fit of initial jealousy and put the friendship at the front. Signs of jealousy include:
Keep friends who stand up to you when you’re wrong. Friendships aren’t all laughs. Good friends are willing to have your best interest in mind, especially if you’re the one making the mistake. This can get tricky because you want friends who will accept you, but also friends who know when you’re slipping, and are willing to help you out. Someone is your friend if they:
Keep friends who listen. Real friends make you feel listened to and understood. If your friend always seems distracted when you’re together, or like they’d rather be elsewhere, hanging out with other people, that’s not a great sign. This can happen to old friends, who you might have known for a long time. But sometimes, something can suddenly change, and the relationship isn’t what it once was. Someone is your friend if they:
Keep friends who are pleasurable to be around. Friendships aren’t always rosy, but they shouldn’t have to feel like work. If you dread the idea of hanging out with someone, or if they seem to resent having to hang out with you, it’s probably not a functional friendship anymore. Someone is your friend if they:
Ask a friend for help. If you need help, is your friend there for you? Or, does your friend make excuses, disappearing when it becomes convenient? Real friends will show up if you need a helping hand and will show up to celebrate with you afterward.
Confront someone you think is playing you. If you suspect a friend might be jealous, two-faced, or using you for something, but can’t quite figure it out, sit them down and have a one-on-one talk when you’re feeling calm and ask them, point-blank, “Are we friends?”
Listen to your gut. All friends and all friendships are different. A lot of how you’re feeling about your friends will be a knee-jerk, gut decision. If you feel like someone really cares about you, and you feel confident that they’re a friend, it’s probably because they are. If you even have to wonder, it’s probably a sign that they’re not.
Keep friends who support you. Friends should be around to help hold you up and celebrate the good times with you, and to help get you through the bad times. Anyone who doesn’t support you emotionally isn’t a frien Someone is your friend if they:
You can then be confident that your friends are real, true, and lasting.
Someone who is a true friend stands up for you. When others try to hurt you emotionally or physically, friends do everything they can to make sure you stay safe.
They don’t care who is trying to harm you; they will defend you anytime, anywhere.
If they can help you, they’ll do it without reservation or reward. A true friend is not one who repeatedly is telling you negative things other people say about you.
First, they make it clear by their words and by their actions where they stand when it comes to you. Secondly, they don’t just merely stand by silently when others are tearing you down no matter what consequences they may face socially. A true friend is a friend when it is convenient and when it is not.
True friendships stand by you consistently both when you are present and when you are not. True friendships are full of support, and can offer a good laugh after a long day.
