Defination of a FRIEND

There is a lot of questions came across my mind..

""what are friends for..""

i heard this once when i was with Calvin..
i think for a very long time and finally i went to search for the defination of the term "friend".

- a term used to denote co-operative and supportive behavior between two or more people.
- In this sense, the term connotes a relationship which involves mutual knowledge, esteem, and affection and respect along with a degree of rendering service to friends in times of need or crisis.

Friends welcome each other's company and
exhibit loyalty towards each other,
often to the point of altruism.

Their tastes will usually be similar and may converge,
and they will share enjoyable activities.

They will also engage in mutually helping behavior,
such as exchange of advice and the sharing of hardship.

A friend is someone who may often demonstrate reciprocating and reflective behaviors. Yet for many, friendship is nothing more than the trust that someone or something will not harm them.

Values found in friendships is often the result of a friend demonstrating the following on a consistent basis:

the tendency to desire what is BEST for the other,
sympathy and empathy,
mutual understanding.

BASED on what i see,
are getting less important.
are getting more USEFUL.
so i'm kind of wondering,
is there any TRUE friendship exist?

Yours sincerely,
