                                                           REAL FRIEND TEST! 

A simple friend, when visiting, acts like a guest…                    A simple friend brings a bottle of wine to your party.

A real friend opens your refrigerator & helps                            A real friend comes early to help you cook & stays late to   

Himself & doesn’t feel even the least bit weird                         help you clean. 

Shutting your ‘Pepsi drawer’ with her foot!                              A simple friend hates it when you call after they’ve gone to bed.

A simple friend, has never seen you cry.                                   A real friend asks you why you took so long to call.

A real friend shoulder is soggy from your tears.                       A simple friend seeks to talk to you about your problems.

A simple friend doesn’t know your parents’ first names.          A real friend seeks to help you with your problems. 

A real friend has their phone numbers in his address book.                                                                      


A simple friends wonders about your romantic History.                   A simple friend expects you to always be there for them.      

A real friend could blackmail you with it!                                         A real friend expects to always be there for you!

A simple friend thinks the friendship is over when you have            When you are down to nothing…

 an argument.                                                                                      God is up to something.

A real friend calls you after you had a fight.
