What is a true friend?

I have to ask myself that a lot lately. I have had people in my life that I have considered good friends...people I have know for a long time. And yet, they seem to screw me over time after time. Yet..there are people that I haven't known for that long at all..and it seems they would bend over backwards for me (I wish :P) and try and help me out whenever they can. Here is an example and I won't use names out of respect. I have known a friend of mine for about 5 years. I get invited to a superbowl party and I decide to go. I buy the plane tickets and I am on my way. Now here is the great part. NO ONE IS THERE TO PICK ME UP AT THE AIRPORT. I called a few people I knew around the area. I either never got a hold of them or they couldn't come. So I take a bus into the city to try and catch yet another bus to get to my friend's house. Well they told me the wrong stop. So here I am..feeling like shit..walking in downtown at 7:30pm...missing the superbowl..and no idea how I am going to get there. THEN..another friend contacts me...a TRUE friend. She asked what is up and I told her. She asked exactly where I was. She was going to drive to me and pick me up and help me out. I haven't known her that long at all and she was willing to drive to me and help. To me..that is a TRUE friend and a friend that I WILL hold onto for the rest of my life. I now make this promise to her..since she will probably read this eventually. I swear on my life I will always be there for you as you were for me that night. I will do everything I possibly can to make sure you are shown the appreciation and love that you so truly deserve. You are more important to me than you realize :) I love you sweetie :D

You definitely know who your friends are when you are truly in need.

"They seem to screw me
over and over again". This reminds me of an old saying. Fooled once, shame on you; fooled twice shame on me.

Ever notice when you feel that pair of scissors enter your back, usually it's a "friend" holding them! A true friend doesn't have to be someone you've known for years, just someone you wouldn't mind knowing for years to come!

That last lady sounds like a friend, the others are just people you know.

Just me talking.....But I have NEVER judged a friend by what they have or will do FOR me....rather, what they have done and will do WITH me......

If I am sitting in jail...I don't want a friend I can call to bail me out...I want a friend sitting beside me saying "Damn, that was fun".....
