  1. In my opinion No: 1 & No: 6 are extremely valuable personality traits for building long lasting and memorable friendships. Empathetic concern, ability to feel for what others are going through and ability to see something from another person’s point of view – makes engaging with people , TRULY REWARDING.

  4. All the mentioned factors are really important to have strong relationship and good friends.The key to connecting to other people is showing interest in them. When you’re truly interested in someone else’s thoughts, feelings, experiences, and opinions, it shows—and they’ll like you for it. You’ll make far more friends by showing your interest rather than trying to get people interested in you. If you’re not genuinely interested in the other person, then stop trying to connect.

  5. Good friendships are a highlight in anyone’s life. Friends can be great sources of support during tough times and can make great moments even greater. However, like most good things in life, friendships require regular maintenance. It can take some work to create and build a lasting friendship. These all given points are necessary for long lasting friendship.Just because someone is different from you doesn’t mean you can’t find common ground on which to build a firm friendship that means acceptance is important and another important think is appreciation ,tell your friends how much they mean to you. You may think they already know this, but a verbal affirmation every so often makes sure they do.

  6. Friendship is a relationship of mutual affection between people. Friendship is a stronger form of interpersonal bond than an association. Friendship has been studied in academic fields such as communication, sociology, social psychology, anthropology, and philosophy.

    Although there are many forms of friendship, some of which may vary from place to place, certain characteristics are present in many types of such bonds. Such characteristics include affection; kindness, love, virtue, sympathy, empathy, honesty, altruism, loyalty, mutual understanding and compassion, enjoyment of each other’s company, trust, and the ability to be oneself, express one’s feelings to others, and make mistakes without fear of judgment from the friend.I strongly believe in point 1,4 and 7 .

  8. Friends are extremely important for everyone,whether it is toddler,teenager,a middle aged person or an old person- everone needs good friends around to live life . According to me point no….. 1,3,4 matters a lot because our friends are our pillars of strength, joy and sorrow. Friends gives us support in our life . Good friends are always cooperative and kind to everyone. Spending time with friends and share ideas and thoughts gives us a lot of relax. A good friend is one who always apologize and forgive one another to make a better and stress free life. Finally friendship is equally important to our mental health also.

  9. To me all the points are important for maintaining a stable friendship. In fact we need to cooperate,show empathy and be trustful first and then expect others to do so. Good friends are very important in ones life. At the time of difficulty and hardships an individual understands his true friends.

  10. For me.. Points 6,7 and 9 are the most desirable. A friend should be whom we can lean on and can trust upon.. as and when required… The best part which I look for is…… When I don’t need to think before speaking is whom I consider my best friend… I don’t need such friend who always apprecites me but rather I would prefer one who understands me and tells me about my weak points in a considerable way…. Anyways friends are very very important for everyone’s life 💐

  11. “The language of friendship is not words but meanings.”
    “When the character of a man is not clear to you, look at his friends.” A good friend shows up no matter what. A true friend supports and encourages us, tolerates our shortcomings, accepts us unconditionally, and cares for us no matter what. A real friend walks in (even when they’d rather be somewhere else), when everyone else is walking out. With a true friend the walls come down and you can be who you are without fear. A good friend knows you well—sometimes better than you do yourself—and is not afraid to tell you things you don’t want to tell yourself. A friend is present for you no matter what time of the night or day it is.

  17. You raise me up. A friend rekindles our light when it has gone out, ignites our excitement, and inspires us to do better and more. A real friend may even inspire you in a way you never imagined you could be. They may wake you up to all of the possibilities that live within you and help you to realize your full potential.

  18. I think the best way to have a long lasting friendship is to be loyal and honest to your friends because with these qualities you will build trust which is the foundation for any kind of relationship. Things will automatically fall in place if you hold a good mutual understanding with each other just by inculcating the values of honesty and loyality.

  21. In my opinion, point 1,3 are having the personality traits which helps in long lasting friendship. Cooperation is an important pillar of any relationship, in friendship too both the friends needs to have cooperation quality. Listening other’s ideas is an another important pillar of friendship. If one is laking the trait of listening his friends ideas than that relationship can’t exist for long.

  23. “Life without friendship is like the sky without sun”.
    All points are equally important but in my opinion point no 1 & 7 are most important for a strong relationship.
    According to point no 1 cooperation and kindness is very important in evry relationship.
    According to point no.7 we should be honest and loyal to our friends because the strength of the bond of friendship between two people can vary. If the bond is very strong, they are called best friends. This can usually be achieved by possessing the elements of friendship, by being kind, generous, loyal, honest and by having fun. With these qualities you can truly enjoy the bliss of friendship.

  30. Friendships have a huge impact on your health and happiness. Good friends relieve stress, provide comfort and joy, prevent loneliness and isolation, and even strengthen your physical health. But close friendships don’t just happen. Many of us struggle to meet people and develop quality connections. Whatever your age or circumstances, though, it’s never too late to make new friends, reconnect with old ones, and greatly improve your social life, emotional health, and overall well-being.

  31. Friends are the true treasure that we earn during our life. They are the actual gems that embed the thread of life beautifully and embellish it in a best possible way. They adore it so perfectly that even gloom sights begin to fade.

    What I carry the opinion that none of the above statements can be over looked to make a kinship promising. All the points given in above checklist should be the part and parcel of TRUE Friendship. If we express, at the same time we have to listen them. Welcoming each other’s ideas, appreciating the right and the most importantly condemning the wrong in each other’s persona are essentials.

    A best friend is like a Mirror. He/She shows you what you actually are. No mincing, no over-coating, no space to be fake. Be original. At time, it may hurt but after a short span, after realization, one accepts it.

  34. According to me no. 7 is the right answer. Honesty and loyalty are everything in friendship. Honesty and Loyalty shows that you are trustworthy, and therefore are more likely to stick by their side until the bitter end, as well as less likely to stab them in the back a few years down the road.

  35. Honesty and Loyalty are the bottom lines are that relationships don’t hurt. Lying, cheating and twisting reality until it screws with someone’s emotions is what hurts. Never mess with someone’s feelings just because you’re unsure of your own. If you are unsure in any way, be sure to say so. Always be open and honest and loyal. So according to me no. 7 is correct.

  44. Greetings for the day! there is a beautiful song,”No man is an island, no one is alone…”, the words are so simple but they have an in-depth meaning, that we all have someone as a best pal. I cannot even imagine my existence without my friends. A best friend is just like a life line who can be banked upon in thick and thin. Our siblings are God’s gift but we make friends by our own choice. Once mutual understanding and trust are developed, this relationship gets strengthened as the time passes. A friend is not a person who is a puppet in your hand, rather you give and take space for yourself and allow your friend to take space. There is a free expression, concern, care, sweet fights and then reconciliations.
