how many close friends do you have? to whom you confide and feel comfortable just being yourself...without the fear of judgment...

I'm so fortunate to mainly have these people around me. The ones I am completely comfortable with. Family, Friends and my boyfriend. I would say that I probably have 7 or 8 such people. =D

That's a real toughy, you know! Living, it's a tough toss-up between my 'best friend' and my boyfriend. They've both been there for me through thick and thin for almost the same amount of time and we've had different experiences together. Then there's my father whom I can share just about everything with. He wouldn't mind if I told him more, but that's for my own comfort that I don't. My Grandma who passed away a few years ago is also a constant confidante - she was when alive and remains so now. Anything that I need to vent about I can do so to her =D

I don't really have any. I have a few people I talk to but I don't really confide in them.

i have quite a number of special people and friends i keep close to my heart. although i dont confide to all of them, i make an effort to be available and listen to them if they have problems. i really appreciate my friends and i want to keep them as they have been keeping me. there are about 15 people i've known from schooldays to college days that have stuck around and are still communicating and sharing their life and expeirences with me. they are the people that i consider my second family, my brothers and my sisters, maybe not by blood but with experiences we've shared all through the years.

I only have one close friend that I talk to on a daily basis and invite over to my house a lot. Other then that I dont have to many friends. When I was a kid I use to have tons of friends but when you grow up its hard to make friends because your always to busy for more friends and what ever friends you had as a kid those are the ones your stuck with not that being stuck with them is a bad idea or anything.

Sometime ago, I wrote a blog about real friends http://www.paulynramirez.com/on-friends-and-friendship/ . I don't keep a lot of friends. But I do value those I consider really close to my heart. These are friends you can count by the fingers of your hand. People you can trust. People you can really confide to. For me, only a couple of friends deserve to be called real friends.
