With friendship comes compassion, courage and trust. It is easy to doubt our friendships, especially when you have high and low moments in life. But a true friend doesn’t go away. And you start to understand what commitment means. Thus you are able to know when you are totally in love with your friends.
1. You are thankful for their honesty
Even when you don’t want to hear it they will tell you things that you can’t help but reflect positively on. You are thankful for them always telling you the truth when you love them.
2. You appreciate them for being selfless
You remember that day they came to keep you company when you were broken by your loved one. You could count on them for being there when the odds are against you. You will always appreciate that.
3. You are concerned about the details in their lives
You want to know about what your friend is doing, even sometimes inquiring what he/she had for breakfast. You are concerned about their moods and what is not right in their lives.
4. You are protective of them
You have a critical perspective of whoever comes into their lives. You want the best for them and you act as a shield for them when they are about to enter into any relationship.
5. You don’t exert any boundaries with them
You are not putting any borders or limitations up with your friend. If you have to stay up late for them, you do. If you have to travel thousand miles to provide something for them, you do.
6. You don’t keep secrets from them
Your friendship is important to you and you want to share your deepest thoughts with your best friends. You want to tell them what is positively and negatively affecting your life. There are no secrets when you love a friend.
7. You are never tired of communicating with them
You keep the communication line open. You text, call, email and make sure you are in touch with your friends regardless of the distance. Whether it is fifty yards, or ten thousand miles you make sure you are in touch with each other.
8. You disagree but you resolve it quickly
Resolving disagreements comes as quick as starting one. Definitely there are times when you are uncomfortable with your friend’s opinion, but it doesn’t matter because you can work it out and resolve whatever odds you may have.
9. You miss each other a lot
Missing each other shows how much the other matters and is relevant to your world. If the other is gone for a day or a week, you wish you were with him or her.
10. You make each other laugh
As much as you may fight or lose it with each other, you both add value to your happiness by making the other laugh and with this a happier person. Telling each other a joke or recounting a period of stupidity or simply calling her or him by their nickname is enough to ignite a smile.
11. You never loose any time with them
When the other returns after a journey away, it is like they haven’t left at all. You are able to start and connect from where you left off.
12. You know each other’s softest spot
We all have soft spots. And you know their soft spots, enough to make them light up in a distressing time. You understand them in an instant and can bring out a brighter person in a difficult time.
13. You have thrilling moments that will always bond you
Anytime you look at the photo album or check your photos on social media and on your phone, memories are reignited. You can’t fail to remember something that will strike you to smile about the other person.
14. You have similar interests
A night in watching a Leonardo Caprio movie together is kind of a mutual interest. You enjoy many things together and will always want to do these things together.
15. You can’t pretend around them
Anytime you are around them, you are original and yourself. Farting and making silly faces around them makes you feel real and not like some poster friend.
16. You are not complete without them
Going to that wedding function or special event without them makes you miss something. You don’t feel complete without them.
17. You can cover up for them
Yes sometimes you will take questionable and stupid actions for them, but you don’t feel bad about it, but it makes you feel validated. You can quickly cover for them without thinking about it or having a second thought about it.
18. You always have things to talk about with them
There is never a period of silence. There is always something to get you guys talking and engaged in a conversation.
19. You know every dirty detail about their lives
From their horrible looking selfie to their unpopular crushes, you know the dirtiest skeletons out of their lives. And you are most reliable to keep them.
20. You will always be there for them
You are going to be a consistent friend and will always stand by them whatever happens. Even when it is not convenient for you, you will keep your loyalty to seeing them become better persons.
