i would like to know what does "just the same" mean in this sentence:
a friend is someone who knows you and loves you just the same.
actually i couldn't understand the whole meaning.
In this sentence, "just the same" means that everyhing (the good AND the BAD) is known about you, but your friend loves you in spite of that, or even though everything is known about you, he still likes you anyway.
"Just the same" is used often.
Son: "I don't want to go to the family party."
Mother: "Just the same, be sure you say hello to your grandmother sometime this weekend."
(means: even though that is OK, you must see your grandmother)
