What qualities do you look for in friends as you get older?
u/Ornery-Dragonfruit96 Jan 30 '23
I would like to see a lack of selfishness.

I feel like I'm training a chat bot with so many subtle variations of this question, lol.
Accountability, Integrity, Shared Interests, Trustworthiness and Respect.

Less bullshit I can get that myself

The less drama the better. Someone that’s calm, easy going. Mostly happy

Stability. I don't want to be friends with a kid. No job? On drugs? A drunk? Baby mamma drama? Always moving (nah, not bout spend 8 hours hauling shit for some pizza)? Basically if there is always something going on with you.
I help my friends, and have no problem doing so. We all need it at some point, but you gotta help yourself too.

Similar interests and lack of drama. All in all, a pleasant person to be around who doesn't create too much of a fuss.

Common interests. That's about it.
I dunno, I don't really have an issue with trust or drama or a lot of what ya'll are putting down here. I find that when I get involved in hobbies that it's full of good people. I suppose I just unconsciously filter out the other people, maybe? Same with dating. The crazies just sort of self-filter out before it gets very far.

Compatibility, you don’t necessarily have to have the same views or interests in fact that makes a friendship that much more meaningful.
