Today on the RHOK they want to know about friends -specifically- What are the top 5 qualities that are most important to you in friendships?
I'd have to start with Loyalty / Trustworthiness (that's 2) - I think any relationship should have this - synonymous with honesty and being supportive. As far as loyalty -some of my closest friends have been my friend for years -some for a few -some about 15 yrs! -Definitely loyal and trustworthiness there on both sides. And sometimes it can quite the ride- I have been there for some marriages then divorces and even some remarriages!
Which brings me to the next thing -serious things can happen throughout anyone's life -Sometimes it is about the Seriousness -whether it's a serious conversation, or a serious situation a friend should be there.
But, in life sometimes you've got to be silly! So,there's got to be Silliness also! My true friends know my silly side. I might go through the toy aisles and turn on the toys, have fun in make believe land, or be enthralled in the latest fad (Twilight anyone;) -Can you believe some people might think this would be immature?! Pfft -Whatever!
And what I think all this means is being open -Communication. Yep, as they say communication is key -which I find true for most true,deep relationships.
Also on this subject I can't help to think of that saying -Some friends are here for a reason,Some a season, and some a lifetime. As it seems with me -I get along with most people -I am usually shy at 1st especially, but those that take the time will get to know me better and hopefully be a good friend -maybe even for a lifetime!
