Hello I have been friends with Violet since 1979, I am 61 now, Violet is a girl or I should say a lady, I had a fight with my mother and and I left the house and was walking and there was this railroad track and i was walking along it in town, there was some houses by it, i sat down on the tracks and was crying, she came out of one of the houses and said hey lady if you sit there then a train will hit you, I said I don't care, she stood there a minute and said well I can't let you go by your self so I will sit here with you. I thought what a dummy, but she knew something was wrong and she decided to take time out of her life and see if she could help. Today we are still like sisters, I lived a 1000 miles away and she always remembered your birthday, and Christmas with a card or a call. Now I am back up here and we get to do things together again and I love it. There is nothing I wouldn't do for her if I can. There are not many real friend ships in this world nowadays and I treat this one with the respect it deserves. She will always be my sister no matter what.

Oh my God. That is a really sweet story. This just proves that strangers aren't always strangers. They could be our friend if we let them. We should never reject he opportunity of meeting new people and having friends. You are truly lucky! Thank you for sharing this. You have inspired me. Do take care!

I am currently twenty three years old and I have two best friends,one is my fiance and the other is Rickey a guy I met my senior year of high school,we both had the same birthday,so I guess that is one of the reasons we back best friends,that and we have a lot of the same interests,I remember in speech class the first day we had to do a speech and give three truths and one lie about ourselves and see if anyone could figure out the lie,that was how we met,and we have been best friends since,he is very trustworthy,and I would do anything for him,just like he would do anything for me.

Let's see.. the oldest best friend I have that I'm still best friends with.. I met her in fifth grade (when we were 10). We really became close, funnily enough, right before she moved to another state. We met because we had the same class, and because we both loved the swings on the playground during recess. We're both 21 now, and the friendship is still going super strong. In fact, she's coming to visit for a long weekend this August, and I'm really looking forward to it.

Since long time ago. We are separated right now by countries but every time I see her is like the same. Thank you for asking such nice question.

I have been friends with my best friend since 1975. So well over 30 years now. We still keep in touch weekly and are planning a vacation together this fall. I am 52 and she is 51. We met at our job at the time and have managed to keep our friendship going all these years even though we live in different states. Most memorable is one of our vacations together when we backpacked through Europe for about 30 days. It was awesome, and we had the best time exploring.

I'm 26. My best friend's name is Lori. She is a girl. We've known each other well over ten years now. We met in High School, particularly Chemistry Class. Greatest times are probably the trips we've gone on together, especially New Orleans.
