    7 types of friends

    I was brought up with a picture of an ideal lifelong friend who is always there when you need. While looking at my current count of 37 friends on Facebook, I felt a little surprised at how come I have got so many friends in my list when my initial intention was to only add those whom I really want to add and how come that having so many friends I still feel lonely often. So I decided to review my friends list and categorize them into the different types of friends, and here’s the list. 

    # 1 The “we were classmates” friends

    These people are your friends because you were in school or university and happen to get along well together. You have a lot of common memories and stories from the past to share. When you met them you usually talk about past or school related stuff and discuss other classmates or teachers. You also share with them your achievements (describing yourself as super businessman or expert) in order to give them a topic for discussion with other classmates. You will most likely have their names in your cell phone because you have called them once or twice to coordinate social events, but you wouldn’t call them out of the blue “just to say hi”.

    #2 The “we hang out together” friends 

    These people are usually the ones we call good acquaintances. You were in school/university/work with them. You often went partying or clubing together. You know their likes and dislikes and you happy to see them. But you won’t share with them your problems or really personal stuff. If you were to run into them in the streets, the conversations would only last for a few minutes. You’d start with “HEY!!”, give a big grin, then ask “what are you doing here?!” and end with a “okay, see you!”.

    #3 The “common interests” friends 

    These are the people who share the same interests with you. You both listen to the same kind of music, like many similar stuff and you think that it will be so cool to be each other’s friends. And that’s about it. These are the kind of friends who easily drift away from you once you start to lose contact, or one of you will give up some hobby.

    #4 The “Online” friends 

    This is the most uncommon type of friend, but they can also be the most precious. You never met them or probably won’t, but this what allows you to pour your feelings to them. You probably don’t know they real name and can vaguely know how they look, but can spent hours commenting their statuses or posts. You probably won’t be too disappointed to lose them. You do not think much about them in your off-line life. But they can raise up your mood as soon as your are on-line again.

    #5 The “business important” friends 
    These are the friends with whom you are engaged in one business, organization or cause. These can also be influential people who might help you with your business. You will always stay polite with them. You contact them in case you need to talk about business or invite them to some social event. You will always ask them formal questions not allowing yourself taking liberties. You have their phone numbers and date of births. This not the type of people whom you miss or with whom you can have good laugh with, though their can be an important part of your life.

    #6 The “let’s meet up” friends

    These are what you call, your close friends. They are the ones whom you would enjoy having lunch or dinner one-on-one, enjoy holding a conversation with, and enjoy joking with. They usually belong to your tightly-knit group of 3 to 4 (a more intimate clique). You guys always have a great time at dinner together, sharing laughs, memories and many great camwhoring sessions. It’s the case where, when you put everyone together, you have an even better time.The thing about this type of friend is that they make it a point to keep in touch with you because they actually do miss you, and they really want to spend time with you and know what’s up with your life, and share with you theirs. Oh, and they will remember your birthday and never fail to wish you.

    #7 The “BEST” friends

    Also known as your closest friends in life. They will usually be your maid of honour or best man during your wedding. You like to talk to each other on the phone all the time. You always have a great time eating dinner together with him/her alone on a semi-regular basis and chatting one-on-one for hours. Heck, you can easily spend the whole day with each other everyday. You guys can really talk about anything under the sun, and you totally understand how each other feel. Being with this type of friends can be both fun and emotionally fulfilling. They make you feel happy to be alive.

    This is the categories of friends I have in my life for now and I'm sure the would be more of them. It is great to have all of them in my life.
    Friendship marks a life even more deeply than love. Love risks degenerating into obsession, friendship is never anything but sharing.

    Triple Filer Test

    Long time ago in ancient Greece, there live a man named Socrates, who was highly knowledgeable and an esteemed philosopher. One fine day, a fellow approached him. That person told Socrates that he has some information to tell him about his friend. Before he could even start talking about his friend, Socrates told him to take a test known as the 'Triple Filter Test'.

    The first test of the 'Triple Filer Test' was the filter of truth. Socrates asked him if the information he had was the truth. The person said that he had just heard it on the way and was not sure if it was the absolute truth. The second filter was that of goodness. He asked if the information was regarding anything good about his friend. The man said it was actually the opposite. The third filter was that of usefulness. Socrates asked if the information was useful to him in any way. The man replied in the negative.

    Socrates then replied that when the information regarding a friend is not true, good or useful, then why it should be conveyed at all.

    THE MORAL of the story is that you may always participate in loose gossip, but when it comes to your friends ,it is just not worth it. You know your friends better than others. Therefore, you must avoid talking behind the back of your dearest friends. It only leads to strained relations and shows that you are not reliable or trustworthy as a friend.

    life with out friends

    Life without friends
    Is like open fields without the rain.
    No one to share a word with in a day,
    No one to wipe your tears away.

    Life without friends
    Is like no water in an empty road.
    No one to give you a hand nor a hug,
    No shoulders to lean on.

    I am running dry, my friend!!
    My tears soak the road you walk.
    Give me a chance, let´s talk!!...
    Why don´t you give me a hand??
    You melt and bury my tears in the sand.

    Life without true friends
    Is a lonely life to lead.
    Let me plant the love seeds
    In your heart to the end!!
    Would you be my true friend??...
