You're killing it at friending.

Friends have always been extremely important to me but I must admit that as I’ve gotten older, I seem to have less of them. Although I might not have a huge number of friends, the friends I do have are true friends that I know I can depend on to have my back at all times, and in return for them being such amazing friends, I try to be just as good of a friend as they are.

When I was growing up, it was easy for me to make friends even when I had to change schools in fourth grade. I always had a best friend and then best friend support friends. The more activities I did, the more friends I made. By doing a lot of theater in high school and college, and then comedy after college, I was constantly meeting people and making friends.

I usually made a friend or two from whatever job I was working. My friends were all unique and eclectic and for many of them, the only thing that they had in common was me as a friend. I think for the most part I was a good friend, but I definitely wasn’t perfect.

I’m not always the easiest person to be friends with as there are certain things that just don’t go over well with me. If you’re an overly critical person and you direct some of your criticism towards your friends, then we’re not a good match. Or, if you’re flaky and undependable, then a friendship between us isn’t going to last for too long.

Like anything, friendships seem to ebb and flow — you may be very close with someone for a time and then you may not see them for a long while, or ever. You might get what you need from a short-term relationship.

The thing is that while you’re in that friendship, you should strive to be the best friend you can be. This is the kind of friend you are and what makes you so amazing, based on your zodiac sign.
