What do you value more in a friend? Loyalty or honesty?

By Jessica . Created on Jun 26, 2020
Which trait is non negotiable in someone you consider a good friend? Is it loyalty- someone who will always be your friend, always be there for you, never switch up on you or kick you to the curb when something new enters their life like a new friend, boyfriend, etc?

But are like a kid in that they love their favorite toy, take it everywhere with them, sleep with it and is rarely seen without it until the very second a new toy enters their life. The old toy still keeps them entertained and is rarely misplaced, but its no longer in the seat belt next to them on the way to walmart.

Ça dépend également de la nature de ma relation avec cet ami, longue date ou nouveau, une relation nourrissante ou ...

Someone may be honest, but they cannot guarantee that they will support you. While the loyal even if he lied to you, you can count on his support.

If you don't have honesty, you do not have loyalty (a friend that lies to you?), so I do not find them separate enough to pick, personally.
