...yes if are are lucky to find a good one who is not self centered and listens, laughs and is not competitive with you, will not try to change you and be there forever no matter what. Only then you have a good friend.
This IS love to me. I love to hear people who are in love with each other talking because you can tell how zen it is to be that in the moment with another person its like watching two spirits dancing with each other. Love is Fun above all other things.
