On Valentine's Day, boys usually buy roses and chocolates for their significant other. However, love isn’t about gifts. Just because someone buys roses doesn’t mean the person receiving it will feel loved. Caring about their worries, listening to their woes and letting them know that someone is by their side when they need support is the most important thing. A true friend lends their shoulder when their companion cries and when they're with each other, they share a smile. A true companion will not ignore their friend when they need help. I would like to be this kind of friend.
