I was treated and pampered and spoilt by two of my very closest friends and I have to say I had a fantastic time, it was just for one night but it was a night of shere luxury in a top class hotel! They REFUSED to let me pay for ANYTHING! They paid my train fare and sent the tickets in the post to me! They paid for one nights accommodation (£110 per night) They paid for a meal for me when I arrived on Sunday, as well as evening meal and breakfast They even picked me up at the station in a TAXI there and BACK! They knew how down I was and they were staying at the hotel from Friday to Monday, I just returned now and it has done me the world of good, it really has! That is the best thing anyone has ever done for me! What's the best thing your friend or friends have done for you, especially if you have been feeling down, poorly, depressed or generally?

i was in florida 2 years ago and spotted a realy good digital camera that i wanted it was a sony cybershot, it was quite expensive for me and i bought it and new memory card, case and the works and thought this was great , i absolutely loved the camers i couldnt put it down and was taking photos of everything, anyway abut 3 monhts after i got home i was out with my wife and i accidently left the camera under my seat and forgot about it and when went back to get it that night it was gone, i got the people to check everywhere and ask anyone who was there did they see it but camera never turned up, about another 3 months later on my birthday we went to a friends house and later on that night they came out with my present and i opened it and they had got me a the camera brand new with memory card , oh my goodness i was speechless cos it wasnt cheap , i really struggled to take it off them, prob the nicest things a friends have ever done.

Wow.. You know I had to think about this. Once a friend of mine gave me some tickets and back stage passes what was worth a lot of money. I think a normal seated ticket was £80 without going into the backstage pass :) I'm not even sure why he gave them to me but it's the best thing a friend has given me. Other than there friendship :) ~Joey

The best thing a friend did for me was give me good news, like you have today..I told you June would get better and better didn't I lol? I have never had those kind of treats but in general the love and support I got from all of you is a lot for me..Well actually one person really helped me out when I needed it and I haven't even met him..He is one of my Forex traders..He put 1,330 bucks into my forex account and thanks to him I could earn and get a senior position in the Berry Tree..which is going to further spear head my online activities..so technically speaking , even though he is just an acquaintance, he really helped me out when I was crying and asking God for a miracle..We are getting there Wolfie aren't we lol? You had a nice break and now you are in business and have good friends.the world is looking up for both of us..we have hope now Wolfie..

I am so glad you had a wonderful time honey - I was so hoping that you were having a great time - if anyone deserves it it is you! My friends have helped me soo many times - when I came out of hospital, I had a small problem with moving my bowels so my best friends boyfriend made me homemade Rhubarb Crumble! lol They are always doing things like that for me, you know little things that mean a lot! Then again I have made some fantastic friends here on mylot who have helped me with words of support and encouragement via pm and email and I am of course very grateful to them! Big Hugs xxxx

I'd have to say that the best thing my friends ever did for me was throw me a going away party and baked me (yes, homemade) a 2 layer cake, cut it into the shape of a pacman (I had the high score at our club att), used the extra pieces to cut ghosts & put a quarter on it for my last game when I left Florida. Them chicks practically shoved my two best friends out the door when they moved away. I didn't realize I was that loved there. Beth, Dale, Angie, Li'l Angie, Bjou, Brian & all the girls down on Starkey in Largo, I miss you guys!!! ...wouldn't that be so cool if some of them were here at myLot??? Killer discussion, wolfie, thanks for bringing back some fond memories. I just took a few minutes and looked for the photo of me holding what was left of the cake when I got home that night, but the photo album is nowhere to be found. The hubs must have stashed it, and I'm not waking him up to ask for it.

Uhm... Its like, wait - I'll start this way. In our country[the Philippines], gays are hated so much. In a survey Ive read in the newspaper many people says that the only thing gays want is to have relationships with the same gender. But its diff. for me. Well... I am a gay. The only thing I want is live life, make many friends and everything. But since that what people thinks about us, my friends has always been there for me. They were the one who picked a dormitory where they will be no men-hahaha- who will pick on me. They have always picked me through all my downs. But the best thing was when I asked them - "what do I worth for you?"They said I was their only priced sunday dress. Well ofcourse they had been my parents,brothers and sisters so I cant ask for more:) Well If my first paragraphs dont belong here, sowee:)

i guess the best that i have done for a friend is just being with them when they need me and helping them if problems come.i think thats it because i really dont need to spend money for my friend just to show that i care for them. now,the best thing that i friend have done for me is during my week long birthday celebration.that was the best,i can never forget that day because thats the time that i really appreciate whatever they were doing.i can still remember when someone gave me a flower when i got to school and when me and my friend were together in the mall,they bought me a cake that i wasnt even expecting,anyways they were the best.
