why most of the people don't know to distinguish between fake & real friends?

in life there are people who really care about us & people who wanna use us just to finish a job. most of us always fall for the later ones. but in the end, its these real friends, who were hurt by us, but care about us even after, stay on our side.

how to find these kinda caring people in our life as early as possible??

all suggestions are welcomed

Some friendhships of in excess of 30 years dissolved while others to which i had given far less stepped up and honestly helped. It is a rather peaceful place to know that you know for sure.

        Aug 16 2012: YES! You either decide to trust no one which is not viable or you trust sensibly and find a world of pleasant surprises punctuated by a few real heart aches. It makes for a full and wonderful life where you feel it all and learn to deal. I choose openness and trust. I live with myself and they must live their whole lives as themselves. Karma?

        Or maybe an Alfred, a Robin and a Morgan would do it.
