    love, trust and communication are not a one way street, both have to make the effort to make the friendship last. i’ve been learning that the hard way. :/

    being a good listener, and sacrificer….and making alot of jokes ….

  18. Betty Ann:

    I have a friend for 40 years .. almost 41 year.. since I was 11 and she is 10; I have to say it is distance.. she grew so differently than me; that actually if I met her today i would not be her friend. (sad to say that but true). I think friends come and go in your life… I have had different friends as I grow and change. The three women I’m closet to now I only know 3 years each …

  19. Sophia:

    As some others have said; unconditionally love and respect.

  20. My experience and research tells me that the friendships that last are consistently loving and supportive. “How To Win Friends And Influence People” and “How To Have Power and Influence Dealing With People” are amazing books.

    Pick your favorite and read a little out of it everyday for the rest of your life. It will change who you are and your life for the better.

    Listening, respect, and acceptance.

    Being playfully teased relentlessly by them. It always gives something to talk, smile and laugh about.

    Space ,mutual understanding and respect.

    Common understanding of personal differences.
