What defines a true friend?

Updated: Nov 24, 2021


True friends communicate.


Daily text of July 20, 2021

There are companions ready to crush one another,

but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.—Prov. 18:24.

We may find it difficult to open up to others because someone might have hurt us in the past. (Prov. 18: 19) Or we may feel that we lack the time and energy to cultivate close relationships. However, we should not give up. If we want our brothers to stand by us when trials come, we must learn to trust them now with our thoughts and feelings. That is an important step toward becoming true friends. (1 Pet. 1:22)


Jesus showed that he trusted his friends by communicating openly with them. (John 15:15) We can imitate him by sharing our joys, concerns, and disappointments with others. Listen carefully as someone talks to you, and you may learn that you have many thoughts, feelings, and goals in common. If you take the initiative to have warm and open conversations with others, your friendships with them are likely to grow. —Prov. 27:9. w19.11 page 4 paragraphs 8-9


True friends stick together.

They show loyal love to each another.

They trust one another.


Thoughts from the November 2019 Watchtower


Friendship thrives in the warm atmosphere

of open, loving, and heartfelt communication.



All of us have much to offer to a friend.



Friends look for and find what is good in us.

Friends focus on our strengths.




Strong friends respond to one another in times of need.

Concerning those we will meet on this site,

how do we know if the person we're meeting here

is a genuine Jehovah's Witness and is really gay,

or is the person a fraud, a fake,


or even an apostate?


Questions like these over time may be helpful.

1. How did the person come into the truth, their experience, and did they get baptized, or working toward baptism?

2. Do they know the teachings of the Bible, and do they believe them?

3. Although perhaps weak, are they, or are they trying to be spiritual?

4. Do they try to undermine Biblical teachings and do they distrust Jehovah's organization here on earth?

5. Do they really seek support, reaching out to help you as well, feeling the mutual struggle you both have, showing one another dignity, and do they ask you these questions: "What do you want me to do for you? What's been happening in your life? How may I and how can I help you?" And will they keep in regular contact with you?

6. Are they honest about homosexual experiences they may have had?

7. Are they willing to talk openly, or are they trying to hide things? Are they reasonable?

8. Are they honest and humble about admitting their weaknesses?

9. Are they willing to Zoom in person?

10. How do they treat you and others on the site?

11. Are they an ex-Jehovah's Witness? If so, why did they leave?

12. Are they disfellowshipped? If so, why? Do they want to come back? How are they showing works that befit repentance? Have they approached or will they approach the elders to return?


13. Is the person flirting with you and others on the site?


Danger! Beware of sly flirts!

And will persons on this site be true friends as defined on this post?


As Jesus stated at Matthew 10:16,

"prove yourselves cautious as serpents

and yet innocent as doves."



May all be able to find and make true friends on this site so that all can count on each other. Please click on the song title "You Can Count on Me" for the mindset we need to have to help and support each other as gay Jehovah's Witnesses.
