At one point in our lives we come across someone that changes your life, is positive, motivating, and honest. If we're going to be honest, it's rare and very difficult to find. Being in the gay community you mostly come across vain, shallow, and fake men. Their only goal is to move forward their own agenda. There is nothing worse than investing your time, honesty, and self, and you're screwed over.
For me I am very direct, and I have found that most gay men can't take someone that is honest, and very direct. They always take it personally, and for some reason they just want to hear what they want to hear, and for me that drives me crazy. So here are a few qualities that think makes a good friend. I know that a true friendship doesn't start instantly, and that strong one takes time to build. So, here I go!
Now we all have different requirements for our friends, and some reason for being friends change over time. There are friends that you know socially, but the true friends are there no matter what, you can laugh and cry, disappoint or be criticized. Regardless you have to work at a friendship and in the gay community you learn quickly that some only want something and a true friend well that's for life.
