  1. Be truthful and be who they are… 🙂

    “Portrait of a Friend”

    I can’t give solutions to all of life’s problems, doubts,
    or fears. But I can listen to you, and together we will
    search for answers.

    I can’t change your past with all it’s heartache and pain,
    nor the future with its untold stories.
    But I can be there now when you need me to care.

    I can’t keep your feet from stumbling.
    I can only offer my hand that you may grasp it and not fall.
    Your joys, triumphs, successes, and happiness are not mine;
    Yet I can share in your laughter.

    Your decisions in life are not mine to make, nor to judge;
    I can only support you, encourage you,
    and help you when you ask.

    I can’t prevent you from falling away from friendship,
    from your values, from me.
    I can only think of you, talk to you and wait for you.

    I can’t give you boundaries which I have determined for you,
    But I can give you the room to change, room to grow,
    room to be yourself.

    I can’t keep your heart from breaking and hurting,
    But I can cry with you and help you pick up the pieces
    and put them back in place.

    I can’t tell you who you are or who you will be
    I can only love you and be your friend
    (Adam Clarke)

  2. Honest, an interest/passion in/for something, humor
    optional: good taste in music or arts, articulate, non-judgmental, I don’t like racists or narcissists, independent, caring. A little like me but not too much! 🙂

      1. Because it’s fun to learn new things, to see other points of view in a discussion. Too much of the same is boring but the foundation of the difference should be mutual respect.

  3. Loyalty & Trusts, in the sense of keeping quiet about things. I don’t want anyone to spread rumors, fact or fiction, about me.

    A spirit of listening & validation. A lot of times, what I seek from a friend is validation that my experience is legitimate , and either unique or common to most people so that I feel better about my own life.

    Carefree & laidback, so that I feel relaxed around them and don’t have to deal with drama.

  4. 1. Kindness: a sense of humanitarianism
    2. A sense of humor…for Gods sake!
    3. Energy that lifts me when I get close to them. They are vibrating at a higher frequency than “regular ” folks. We feel comfortable together.
