Wow what a f&ckin thread!
It started as a friendship thing and the that hate thing came into it! LMFAO and ROTFLing...
I do it like this:
Aquaintences... you know those folks that you run into at the local store you know little more about each other than the rumour mill churns out!A friendly smile, a nod , a handshake and How Ya doin How ya doin!
Friends : you ve drank at the same bar, went to school together, exchange jokes , a lsap on the back. You tell each other some jokes, gossip abot the "aquaintences" and talk some shop, Hows the job going? You and whats her name still together..etc
Then my fine folk ther are my brothers and sisters, the folks that you have gotten the dck in the dirt with. Backed each other in fights, gotten each other out of fights , thrown their bail . They know your secrets and they know your pains, and they would stay by you when you brake down on the road in the rain.They know your enemies and they know your friends and will treat them as either just because you say so!
I got a handful of them! And we all went our own ways over the yeras, but we could get together tommorrow and feel the same bond as ten years ago!
Well thats the way it works for me!
JULES write: I have a true friend that has always been there for me. We live in NC and my son was in a serious car accident a few days before Christmas in Florida. As I drove to Florida I called her at 1030 at night she was in Florida at my son's bedside with me at 8 am. She placed her plans for Vegas on hold knowing that I needed her. I have also been there for her in her rough times and always will be. I am truly blessed having a friend like her and when my son was better thank goodness he told her how much it meant to him that she came down to Florida. This is a true friend and someone I will always cherish
Jules, you are truly blessed! I have a few friends like that! My bestest guy bud is Bikeman! I have soooo many bestest girl buds..and they all know who they are! I tell them everytime I talk to them how much I love them and how thankful I am to God and all the powers that be for them!

My brother was told he was losing many of his friends while he was going through a bad divorce and hard times........His reply to them:" I'm not losing friends, I'm just finding out who my friends really are"
A true friend not only accepts you for who you are including your faults but also can tell you the truth whether you like it or not, agree with it or not, but no matter what they say it is because they truly do have your best interests at heart. And sometimes that's more than we can do for ourselves.
..........i agree with wingrider1 and back home i do have a few friends that i would actually put my life on the line for. I hope that before long i might meet someone here that i Might consider a true friend.
Hi everyone, well i have kicked around this site for a while and found you all to be normal people so keep talking. Friends, I have only 2 friends here in australia, they live 1400 ks away and we see each other once a year but they are true friends who you can rely on 24/7 no matter what and this is all anyone could ask for in a life time. Cheers you guys ride safe and keep well.
I'm only as strong as the cocktails I drink, the hairspray I use, and the girlfriends I have. Here's to you! Why do we only have parties for each other when one of us gets married, pregnant, has a birthday, or retires? What would most of us do without our sisters, confidants, and shopping, lunching and traveling girlfriends? Let's celebrate each other for each other's sake! Pass this on to your girlfriends! If you get this twice or more, you are lucky to have more than one girlfriend. Be happy!
Someone will always be prettier.
They will always be smarter.
Their house will be bigger.
They will drive a better car.
Their children will do better in school.
And their husband will fix more things around the house.
So let it go,
and love you and your circumstances.
Think about it.
The prettiest woman in the world can have hell in her heart.
And the most highly favored
Woman on your job may be unable to have children.
And the richest woman you know,
she's got the car, the house, the clothes....might be lonely.
And the word says if "I have not Love, I am nothing."
So, again, love you.
Love who you are.
Look in the mirror in the morning and smile and say
"I am too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed!"
"Winners make things happen.
Losers let things happen."
Be Blessed ladies and pass this on to encourage another woman.
"To the world you might be one person,
but to one person you just might be the world".
Happy National Friendship Week.
Many people will walk in and out of your life.
But only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.
To handle yourself, use your head;
To handle others, use your heart.
Anger is only one letter short of danger.
If someone betrays you once, it is his fault;
If he betrays you twice, it is your fault.
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
He, who loses money, loses much;
He, who loses a friend, loses much more;
He, who loses faith, loses all.
Beautiful young people are accidents of nature,
"lbut beautiful old people are works of art.
Learn from the mistakes of others.
You can't live long enough to make them all yourself.
Friends, you and me .... You brought another friend ...............
And then there were 3 .... We started our group ....
Our circle of friends .... There is no beginning or end ....
Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is mystery. Today is a gift.
