In Response to Some of the Comments I Received

I just want to say that my last entry was simply a way of exploring what it was that I found attractive in a potential mate. I do not want anyone to think that I hate them because they don't seem like that image.

So, in response, I will give a description of what I look for in a friend:


DISCLAIMER

The following is brief and simple, not because I don't want to go into detail, but because the following is all I truly look for. Anything not included as specifically sought after or sought against, simply does not factor into my search.


The Ideal Friend

There are three things that I look for in a friend; trust, loyalty, and compassion.

Trust:
Trust is like air. If I can't trust a friend, the relationship sufficates. Now, when I say trust, I mean one of a few things: the ability to be open with my past, my secrets, and my feelings and not hear about it from some random person the next day; the ability to rely on that person to hold up to agreements; and the ability to not worry if my friend will defend me (in whatever fashion they can) in times of need.


Loyalty:
Trust and loyalty are very similiar, but with a few distingishing factors. Loyalty is when I can depend on a friend not to jump ship when the times get tough. I have known far too many "friends" who at the moment something bad happens they're gone like cockroaches when the lights go on. Luckily, I've not had that happen in a long time (at least not on a massive scale). Basically, I don't want to have to worry about pleasing my friends at all times to make them feel like they should stick around. That wears me out.


Compassion:
I generally have a problem with people who ignore other people's feelings completely. It's one thing not to dwell on every little sorrow of every person who lost their favorite pencil, but not feeling anything or at least showing some sympathy for those with stronger issues, just really irritates me. I've been fortunate to not know so many people like that. As of right now, the only person I know who is closest to that, in my opinion, is Tyler Bland. He may not be, but he has yet to show any form of compassion. I don't care if he still remains arrogant or generally annoying, if only he could just learn some compassion. I honestly hope he proves me wrong and shows that he has some.



So, now that I have stated that, I hope that could clear up some issues.
