Hey guys (and girls), I'm currently doing a creative write and I wanted your opinions on what the essence of friendship is. Like, think of your best friend, and at the end of the day, why are you best friends? When boiled down, what is the core value of friendship?

A little cheeseball, I know, but hopefully I can sift through the typical Pit responses and get a couple useful responses. Thanks

For myself, I think that friendship is just knowing that the other person will be there for you no matter what.

You can discuss things with them that you wouldn't with other people, you put up with each others shortcomings to a certain extent and you genuinely enjoy the persons company I suppose

- A friend will always gives you an honest insight in what they think of you in tough situations.
- A friend will never talk behind your back
- A friend will always tell you what others think of you
- A friend will always call you up a few times a week to see how you're getting on
- A friend will always invite you out every so often (at least once a week)
- A friend will never overshadow (not respond to you) you in front of anyone
- A friend will always have initiative on how you might be feeling on any situation and, if it applies, try not to make it worse (they may do something that will upset you but unintentionally - that's the main part)
- A friend will always remember you birthday (gifts are given by better friends, except by mutual recognition whereby they don't get you a gift if you don't get them one)
- A friend will never steal a relationship from you intentionally. Love is tough sometimes and there's no way of helping it but that friend must specifically take steps to make it known to you, before crossing the line such as sleeping with, kissing with, or even telling that relation how they feel.
- A friend will appologize when he or she is in the wrong and knows it.
- A great friend will forgive for broken rules of that friendship
- A great friend tells you everything, even secrets
- A friend will make you laugh and knows what won't make you laugh (personal jokes and knowing what will hurt you). Saying that, a friend will never make personal jokes at you.

hmmm...i'd say a friend is someone you can sit in the same room with and have a comfortable silence and share insights and be humorous with and serious with at other times. They accept all of you and you accept all of them...

Core value of friendship you ask?

When you're being honest and tell your best friend you fucked his girl in the ass.
May the Force be with You.

A friend should be honest with you.

A friend will overlook your shortcomings.

A good friend will bail you out of jail.

Come on now, I don't think he asked for a tacky chain email.

All you need for friendship is loyalty and trust, as someone said before.

To be fair, the TS clearly stated in his post he wanted to know what the core value of friendship was.

A lot of those things listed were just extra benefits.

To say of what is that it is not, or of what is not that it is, is false, while to say of what is that it is, and of what is not that it is not, is true.

Loyalty. Being able to disagree on many things and still get on great. Companionable silences. Being able to go ages without seeing eachother, and then it being just as good as when you left. Etc.
Musically ignorant. Seeking education.

That's not a "tacky chainmail" - I took time thinking of what I consider a friend.

Are those really core elements of a friend though?

Getting a call a few times a week, invite over once a week etc. Those things don't seem like core elements to me.

The tacky chainmail comment is because it reminded me of one of those female written emails that have the ridiculous requests of what a "true" boyfriend should be like etc.
