Friends are those blessings that we choose for ourselves. You must be really lucky to have a bevy of friends around you but are you sure that they are all genuine and true to you just the way you are towards them.

There may be some fake friends who are with you because of some ulterior motives and hidden agendas. These kind of friends come to you when they need you, however the converse is not true.

To help you distinguish between genuine and fake friends, we have compiled a list of top five signs of true friendship. Read through these points and save yourself from being exploited by the wrong set of friends and be in the company of those who genuinely care for you.

#1 : A true friend is never jealous

If it is about getting high scores in an examination at college or being in love with someone, a true friend is always happy for you. He/she never passes nasty comments to trigger negativity in your mind. A true friend finds his/her happiness in your happiness. They don't brood over your success to come up with wicked ways to sever it, however a fake friend spends maximum time on this.

#2 : A true friend is honest

Honesty is the foundation of true friendship. So, if you have a friend who lies to you every now and then and then gives lame excuses for questions that you ask him/her, it's a red flag. A true friend doesn't lie to you about anything. Even if telling the truth may hurt you, he/she takes the effort and risk to make you aware of it. When the friendship is true, you'll always find encouragement coming your way from your friend because a true friend helps you soar high by being a support, a guide. He/she will never demotivate you, no matter how hard situations may get. In short a true friend is an alter ego of oneself.

#3: A true friend is not competitive

A true friend never strives for success at the cost of losing your friendship. When you will be surrounded by competitors all around you, a true friend is the one who stands by your side. In true friendship there isn't any competition that unhealthy. The spirit of true friendship is based on immense care, affection and loyalty towards your friend. If you are in a bad mood and you vent out your anger on your friend, a true friend would understand the reason behind your anguish and adapt accordingly. However, if you do the same with a fake friend, you'll either experience retaliation in the form of heated arguments or even a termination of friendship.

#4 : A true friend always helps

When you feel upset and dejected because of any reason, you can bank upon your true friend for any kind of help, be it emotional or physical. A true friend always walks the extra mile to restore the peace and bring you back to your lively self if he/she sees you disturbed with something. Fake friends are the first ones to walk away when they see you in any kind of trouble. This is the true test of friendship and the friends who hold your hand and help you come out of your problems are true friends.

#5 : A true friends always listens

When you are low, you wish you had someone who could listen to you and understand your pain. It's at this time that true friends come into light. A true friend is all ears to any and every problem that you may face at any time of your life. The most important traits of a true friend are a helpful spirit and an understanding heart. You can confide whatever is in your heart without any fear in front of your true friend because he/she will listen to it and shut it within himself/herself.
