Being a proper friend

  1. Give your support even if this does not involve offering advice
  2. Remember their birthday
  3. Be an active participant (e.g. attend games, help with projects)
  4. Say “I love you.”
  5. Admit when you are wrong and apologize
  6. Tell them how you truly feel
  7. Keep your promises
  8. Ask how they are feeling
  9. Respect their hobbies, preferences and opinions
  10. Set healthy boundaries
  11. Express each others expectations and needs
  12. Set aside days for spending time together (Stay in touch)

Always remind yourself that relationships are alive and must be kept as such. Do not assume your close girlfriends and boyfriends will stand by you if they are neglected.

I myself still require a great amount of discipline in this area and must continue trying.
