Most of the time yes.. problems that no one even a close friend didn't help.But they are certain things that friends can do and it has limitation. Take for example ourselves. Can we be there for our friend 24/7?.. We can be there for them if the time and situation allows us. Sometimes not that we don't want to be there for them but we just can't. That doesn't mean as a friend, you're not a good one just because out of 5 favors asked of you, you only can satisfy 3. Fact is we're there for them. It might be that the help is needed at the wrong time and the wrong place..we can't do anything but just give advice through phones/emails instead of being there for them. But well, what happened to me was when i got drunk one night, i had to walk alone back home and no one was with me. They left me wondering around drunk and i ended up waking up at a phone booth the next morning! embarrassing indeed.

I am very picking on picking my friends so when I call on them I know that they will be here, for I am always there for them and that is just how it works for us we all work together to make all of our lives easier//.That is just the way that I operate, I am a very outgoing person and my friends are more or less part of my family and that works for me. I do not know what would happen if a friend didn't show up to help me..If it was an emergency and they couldn't understandable, but if they just didnt want to well they would't stay with my friends long .

I have had a time of drought when it came to friends... Two of my friends moved away and were unavailable to me and one other friend was in another country and another friend was giving me what seemed like the silent treatment. It was not a fun time. I was feeling alone and was feeling stressed at work and ill physically. I am glad that this time passed. I reached out first to my family and they were supportive. Then I reached out to a friend who was around and she was supportive and then eventually my other friends returned and were there for me. I have learned to reach out and to just state my needs rather than trying to save face and hide my need. I will tell you that this has made me closer to my family... and made me realize that I need to make more friends and value them and the ones I presently have as I much rather have a feast of friends rather than a friend famine.

I have had this problem many times, I have always been there for my friends, I have been there for them when they have been sick, out of work, short of money in a desperate situation, I have helped them move, look after pets, done just about everything asked of me and yet most times as sad is it may seem no one is ever really there in the few times i have needed them, it is strange how this seems to happen, sometimes I I say to myself I am going to stop being there but then I find myself there again...
