You can be honest, sincere, and truthful with close friends because they are honest, sincere, and truthful with you.
Close friends will accept you with your flaws and the mistakes that you make in life without advertising or gossiping about them with others. You can let your hair down or be yourself without fear that some of the bad thingsthat you do will become public knowledge in the future and threaten your reputation. They are loyal.
Close friends share at least one or more of your passions in life and sharing information and activities about those passions on a regular basis is what bonds you together.
Close friends will try to help you in times of need with reassuring emotional support, advice when needed, and occasionally even financial advice or help.
The farther away a close friend is and the less you interact or communicate with them on a regular basis the less intense your friendship becomes.
Conclusion: If you want a close friendship make sure you have one or more passions in common which you can share and discuss and participate in. Be honest and truthful with your friend but not in a mean or very critical way. Don’t gossip about any personal flaws, mistakes, hardships, and personal secrets which they may have.
Nurture your close friendship by investing enough personal time with your friend so that it doesn’t gradually fade and maybe even disappear through neglect.
If you have one close friend in life consider yourself fortunate because most people have no close friends!!!!!!
