i'm a very trusting person so i've been hurt many times in the past. that caused me to put up a shield which made it hard for the real friends to come in. i have a very stressful job. i work in my local crisis center. i cannot share, because EVERYONE wants names, etc. i also spend alot of time online. i have many, many friendship sites. THOSE friends, i can count on. strange is it not ?

True friends are so dear and hard to find. I would say I have probably 3 very close friends that I dearly treasure,and know that whatever I told them or we told each other it would go no farther. Here is a quote to remember: "BE COURTEOUS TO ALL, BUT INTIMATE WITH FEW,AND LET THOSE FEW BE WELL TRIED BEFORE YOU GIVE THEM YOUR CONFIDENCE.-George Washington I'd say that is pretty good advice.

i usually hang out with someone different every 2 years. i have a closer bond with the people i grew up with in wva because it was a small town and i have been around them for 7 years...so we r like sisters. people in my california high school, i didnt know too well..more of acquaintances...then i made friends in college from all over...so i didnt see them much after graduation but we bonded when we were in college...i have bonded with certain people in all my schools but after school is over, everyone goes their separate ways...and we rarely see each other...so i guess all my friends have been temporary friends for the time being or school years...and now i am an adult, and adults have other concerns to worry about...life goes on...

I have two or three good friends...er...maybe more.Most of my friends will appear when i was struck.In daily,we didin`t call each other very often.There is a kind of belive between our feeling.

my closed friends are 2-3 and maybe with mu husband i can tell i have 4. I don't think having many friends means they are best friends and truly friends. One or two but sincere friends are more then enough.

well,I have about three true friends.We've known each other for about ten years.We like to help each other when one of us is in trouble.I think true friends are the ones who are honest to others and have much in common.sometimes giving suggestions is also very important .Be sincere to your friends,then your friendship can last long.

I can say I am very lucky to have a lot of friends whom I met over the net. I consider them as my very close friends whom I wish I would meet personally soon.

I have 3 true friends. I am definitely sure that they can be trusted. I think people try to find friends instead of letting them just come to you. Making friends is natural and you can force it.
