Do you have a friend that is always cheerful and encouraging and doesn't want anything from you except your friendship? People like that are rare.

I have several friends like that. We are there for each other no matter what.

I do. That having been said, my two best friends passed away last year
Musicman · 61-69, M
@Sevendays Has she called crying about it yet? Any idea if she has signed them?
Sevendays · M
@Musicman no contact.
Musicman · 61-69, M
@Sevendays It would be awesome if she just signed them and sent them back.

I have 3 just like that! And I hope I'm like that to them.
Musicman · 61-69, M
@PEACH4LIFE I have a feeling you are. 🙂🙂🙂

On SW I have several friends like that. In real life, while I have friends, they are definitely not always cheerful. They can't be, nor should they be...they are, all of them, struggling with severe health issues. I try to be there for them when they really need me.

@IndianaJoes Thank you!
@4meAndyou it may not be much but then it may be everything for your friend who is fighting cancer. It's worth looking into to save a life.
Yes!! And indeed, they are rare.

I have a couple loyal ones just like that. Makes life drastically better, and rare, they most certainly are.💖

I guess. I prefer people to be human. I don't need to be placated or pampered all the time.

I have ONE friend who lives in Pennsylvania (we lived together in Tennessee for 10+ years) who is usually endlessly supportive and kind to me. She would probably be who I would name if someone asked me who my best friend was.

But we live all the way across the country from one another, so we never get to hang out in person, only via phone.
Musicman · 61-69, M
@DearAmbellina2113 The phone is good. At least you have someone.

People like that don’t exist, or they died out and are extinct.
Miklee02 · 51-55, F
So rare!
But I’ve managed to find a few
Musicman · 61-69, M
@Miklee02 Excellent! 🙂🙂🙂
Cigarguy101 · 41-45, M
Yes for almost 30 years
Musicman · 61-69, M
@Cigarguy101 I hope you cherish the friendship.
Cigarguy101 · 41-45, M
@Musicman I do and he knows it's.
Jeephikelove · 46-50, F
I’m like that
Musicman · 61-69, M
@Jeephikelove That makes you an awesome friend and person. 🤗🤗🤗
Jeephikelove · 46-50, F
@Musicman thank you, I’m sure my friends would agree with you. ☺️
I have a few of those kind of friends. And I always say that I don't need lots of friends... I just need a few good ones.
Livingwell · 61-69, M
Yes. I have a few.
