Bluntly honest to the point of assholes.

Posted on

9. Often you're minds are in sync.

Sometimes, you'll find yourself thinking exactly the same thing! (Not that you can know, because you don't read minds...but you get what I'm saying)

8. Not judgers but listeners.

They do not judge you. Instead they try to understand where you're coming from before paying attention to any ridiculous rumors or misinformed guesses.

7. Brutally honest to the point of asshole-ish.

Sure, they tell a white lie here and there, but when it comes to the important stuff, they are bluntly honest. To the point of annoyance sometimes, but you know they always tell you the truth, and you value that.

6. Never ashamed of your friendship.


Everyone has their own weird & unique traits. A true friend will never put you down because of who you are. In fact, they'll join in on the weirdness.

5. Stand up for you when you are and aren't around.

A true friend will know what kind of person you are. So whether it's your word vs someone else's, or someone talking badly behind your back, they will stand up for you because they believe in your integrity. Don't betray their trust.

4. Support you in your love life.

Whether it's giving you a push in the right direction or emotionally supporting you through the struggle. When they see you truly love someone, they will cheer you on and hope for your success in love.

3. Try to point you in the right direction.

Sometimes we all get a little bit lost in this word. When a true friend sees that, they will get in your face (if necessary) and try to point you in the right direction.

2. Redefining fun.

They can redefine what a party means. It's not about how many people there are or where you are; its whether or not those people bring joy to your life. Your true friends know how to make you laugh with their sheer presence.
