First of all,I think that friendship and loyalty,are like siamese individuals;it is to say,that they are bounded together.One must be equal to the other,there must be no discrimination whatsoever.If you are honest and thrustworthy,you must accept people,just like they are;give advices when it is necessary,but not be the first to take measures to break a friendship,except as a last resource.Try other measures first.Be friendly and loyal,in good times and in bad times as well.If you do so,you could be considered as a friend and a loyal individual.
I prefer men friends but men always seem to want to be more than friends even if you have no desire to be more than friends with them. I have lost many potentially close friends because of this. Why do men in general think a woman has to be more than just a friend? Anyway I'm looking for friends but I want to develop a close long lasting intimate relationship with a good man.
The foundation of any relationship, whether friendship or love, must include trust and mutual respect. The problem with meeting people on-line is how can you develop trust and mutual respect when you don't really know anything about these folks? I've had friends burned by married guys pretending to be single on-line.
Now, don't get me wrong. I'm not saying you can never find friends on-line. I met a great pal years ago through the Dr. Weil health site and we finally met in person this year. It was great.
I try to look at people for who they are, but not many people have this quality. Even on this site, when I tried to meet some people, they lashed back with such anger for no reason or got the wrong idea instantly. I don't know what the deal is.
It is hard to be nice when it seems the majority aren't. There are many phrases such as "I aint no killa, but don't push me." I'm nice, but don't treat me like some happy go lucky child. I am a human being just as you are. And I can only take so much before I want to lash back as well.
I know that friends are indeed a special thing, especially in today's society. You will be hard pressed to find someone that is actually a true friend instead of a backbiter, etc.
