The one person that will stand by you, no matter what. They will help you with your problems and give you the advice you need, even if it isn't what you want to hear. They will put you first and make time for you when you need them. They will always have your back when you need it but won't hesitate to tell you when you're wrong.

No matter how long you are apart you can pick up right where you left off with them.
Jay has always been there for me even when he's had all kinds of other stuff going on. He's a "real friend".

Beth has never been a "real friend" but I never thought she would betray me like that.

a person who makes your problems theirs and tries to help you through them.. however, sometimes creating them.

the person who would st with you at lunch when your other so-called 'friends' diched you because you weren't 'cool'//'accepted' is your real friend.

the real friend that tells you never to worry about the things you cant change.

Originated with Andrew and Brandon from Grand Island Nebraska.

"Real Friends" is used to a describe a friendship between two people that completely understand each other. It's the upper echelon of all friendships and is even ranked above the relationship. Keep in mind though that the "real friends" are not gay, it's just that their friendship is so strong that even a heterosexual relationship between a couple cannot compared to the strength of this friendship.
Andrew: Hey man, I told her I loved her but I had to hang out with you on Saturday instead of her

Brandon: Real friends dude, Real Friends

Andrew: You know it!

A REAL friend is someone who won’t go behind your back. A REAL friend will say the truth and nothing but the truth. A REAL friend would never comfort you with a lie. A REAL friend will stick with you for life, no matter the hate you put on each other. A REAL friend will bring confidence to you and will encourage you to get to your goals. A REAL friend will never be fake, no matter what. A REAL friend will always take as many bullets for you as they can. A REAL friend will defend you through out the way. They will never ditch you for other people and will be patient with you. No matter what you do to them, they will forgive you. And when they mess up, they will make it up to you, they will fix what they did.
Dylan: You are a real friend.
Jayson: Thanks bro.

a real friend is someone who isn’t fake, someone who puts you first, someone who doesn’t hide things from you, someone who tells you EVERYTHING, someone who has your back, and someone you can rely on.
