  • Being Trustworthy:
    Trust is 90% of the friendship! Don't make promises that you can't keep. If you keep breaking promises, then you will soon find out that your friend(s) can't trust you with anything. No one's perfect and if you have to cancel plans once every blue moon, THATS OKAY! Just don't let it become a consistent thing. Apologize to them with sympathy and simply move on.

  • Being Honest:
    If your friend does something that bothered you or made you upset, tell him/her. Be nice about it and so in the future they'll hopefully not do it again. You also don't want to lie about your plans. If you already have plans with someone and they ask to hang out, tell them the truth. You shouldn't have to lie about what you're doing. Your friend will most likely find out and be mad at you for lying! Also, there's a huge difference in being honest and being so blunt that you're hurting your friends feelings!

  • Being Loyal:
    No one likes a blabber mouth. If you are living off gossip, you're doing it wrong! You should want your friends to be able to open up with their secrets and be able to trust that you aren't going to go tell everyone. If you're ever tempted to tell someone a friend's secret just stop and think about what you're about to do. Ask yourself, "would he/she be mad if I told them?" or "would I want my secrets being told to everyone?"
    Another step to being loyal is not talking bad about your friend. Don't talk bad about them and don't let others talk poorly about them around them.

  • Be Supportive:
    You want to be selfless at the right times, be a good listener, help them deal with struggles, and give thoughtful advice. Always be a good listener and don't interrupt them while they're talking about something important. Think about good advice but be careful of not offending them. Being there for them in a time of need is one of the most important things about friendship. Go over to their house and talk to them about it, talk to them on the phone, or even text them if you absolutely have to.

  • Make your friendship last:
    Be forgiving, accept your friend for who they are, and stay in touch! Don't be the one to hold grudges and have bitterness. You also need to try and not get mad at little things. If your friend has done something that's absolutely unforgivable then you need to move on.
    Accepting your friend for their flaws will help your friendship thrive. Everyone including you has flaws and you just have to accept that!
    Staying in touch with a friend will help you guys stay strong!
