What are the qualities of a good friend?

Report as

they call - you go. you don't stop to think if there is something you get in return. listen when they need an ear. comment if they ask but don't argue if they don't like your answer. if you need them - they come. same as above. you can call at midnight and wake them up if you need to talk. you jump in the ambulance when they have a heart attack and go to the hospital with them even though you will be left without a car. true friendship requires you to make decisions without thinking of yourself first unless it would cause a danger to you or be against the law. then your friend isn't being a true friend. my friend fainted from a brain tumor, I went in the ambulance with her 4 hours from home b/c her husband was on the road for work. didn't get home for 2 days. but she wasn't alone. friends. listen with your heart. don't throw money at their situations use your best judgements as you would apply them to your own family. and be truthful but not painful. be diplomatic and honest. that seems like and oxymoron but can be done! and love them.

True friendship qualities include: they take a genuine interest in others, should be a giver not a taker, be loyal, be a positive person, and appreciate the difference in others and most of all be honest, open and real.

Honesty is the best policy! Someone you can tell anything to and they don't judge you or tell others you told them. Someone who you know you can call night or day and they will be there to listen to you. Help you through tough times. Someone who will laugh with you, not at you. Someone who will be by your side no matter what. And love you even when you make mistakes!

Honesty, truthfulness, willing to listen, trust. These qualities make a good friend. Also someone who doesn't judge you, but accepts you for who you are!

A true friend will not tell you what you want to hear but tell you the truth even if you don't want hear it. A true friend will never stab you in the back or repeat what's been said them they will hold it in strict confidence. (((A true friend isn't like a refrigerator on defrost that can't keep anything.))) They are 1 loyal 2 respectful 3 kind 4 considerate 5 caring 6 thoughtful 7 faithful 8 comforting 9 trustworthy 10 truthful. (((Proverbs18:24))) A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and There is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother. (((Proverbs17:17))) A friend loveth at all times,

Italian basically hit the nail on the head. A friend is someone that you can count on, who is there when you need them. They are not only there to share laughter and silliness, but there to comfort and listen in your times of sadness as well. They are a person you can always trust to keep your secrets and to have your back and stick up for you when needed. They build you up and make you feel good about yourself. And basically everything else that Italian said.
Romans 12:15-Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.
^that scripture I think is a quality of a friend:)
I am very lucky to have a best friend with these qualities. I love my best friend <3
