13 Ways to Recognize a Good Friend

I've always heard that the difference between a friend and a good friend, is that a good friend knows all about you and likes you anyway. In that spirit, I'll tackle thirteen ways to recognize a good friend. If any of you have a "good friend" story you'd like to share, please do!

1. They cover for you when you really screw up

2. A friend will bail you out of jail. A good friend will be sitting right beside you, going, "Damn, that was fun!"
3. If you were to jump off a bridge, a friend might try to talk you out of it. A good friend would be at the bottom to break your fall.
4. A good friend is like a four leaf clover, hard to find and lucky to have.
5. Many people will walk in and out of you life, but only good friends will leave footprints in your heart.
6. A friend remembers your birthday. A good friend knows when you'd rather forget it!
7. A good friend is cheaper than therapy.
8. A good friend remembers what we were,  and sees what we can be .
9. I asked God for a flower, he gave me a garden. Asked for a friend, he gave me you.
10.  Good friends don’t let you do stupid things alone.
11. A good friend can make up for a bad family.
12. Good Friends are like bras: close to your heart and there for support.
13. But remember, a dog isn't *always* man's best friend. Especially if the man hasn't been that friendly himself!

I'd love to hear your quotes and of course, your stories!

A good friend will tell you the truth when no one else will.

A good friend knows your good points and your bad points, and likes you anyway.

I always think of a good friend as 'priceless'.

A good friend will be the "three" in your threesome if you ask. lol

Just kidding. I was just over at random girls blog and she's talking about threesomes.

A good friend will offer to beat up the poor sap who broke your heart w/o you having to ask.

Oh, so true! All of you are right. I think the key thing in common is that we don't have to ask for support. A good friend knows when we need it and just gives. I'm grateful I have friends like that. Bless each of them!

A good friend will go out drinking with you. A great friend will hold your hair back afterwards, so it doesn't get whiffy.
