Haha, just wondering. I talked to one of my friends that I drifted apart from, and apparently in kindergarten we became friends because she was crying, and I came over, gave her a teddy, and told her to be quiet. We drifted apart in 4th grade. With my close friends, I don't go in with the intent of making friends, I just feel bored and talk to them and yeahh. When I actually TRY to make friends, the friendship isn't as, idk. There's usually just something missing. Soo...what about you guys? :3 I want to hear your stories, haha.

We became best friends when we were still in high school. We have the same intrests, we all like sports, basketball, football. After graduated from high school, we keep touch with each other all the time.

I met my best-friend when we moved to a new place (the place where I live now) when I was a kid. We used to hate each other, fight for something that isn't really a big deal, get more "so called" friends to see who amongst us has more friends or who is more popular. Then out of the blue, we became friends. We found out that we have so many things in common and laugh about the days we used to fight each other. We play at their house and I usually go home late at night. Most of the time, we have the same hair style. We always ask each other what color we should wear on the next day as we really want to look the same all the time (we sometimes do that nowadays lol). It really feels good to have someone who treats you like a sister even if you are not even related to each other. Thumbs up to all our Best-friends out there! :)

Ha, thats a nice story x3 Lololol, I should come up with discussions where people tell me stories more often. Yeah, there's usually a reason why you dislike someone, plus it takes effort to dislike someone. Enemies/Rivals often become best friends I find, haha :3 I used to really dislike this girl, but she's in my circle of friends so I thought, oh why not. Now we're good friends...and she still irritates me sometimes. But she's nice. But I didn't care for what she thought of me(unlikes you guys, were you rivals? o.o), I just disliked her.

We used to be rivals before we became friends. I thought she was a threat to me. I don't want her to get more friends than I do so I tried to get the people out of her life and make them mine. Sounds mean, but that's what she did as well :P. We were fighting for popularity in our place way back when we were kids. Funny story, but it happened lol. And we laugh when we talk about our past (let's say ugly past :P).. After we became friends, her friends became my friends and mine became hers. So we then had a bigger circle of friends. Sadly though, you can only count a few good friends because not all people you call friend are real to you.

good day xemorth, a nice topic to fonder. well, i remember those years when i do have a close college friend, wherein, we share a lot in terms of ideas, foods, school things and even on some of our clothes. well, the closeness started when a heavy rainfall and she does not have an umbrella to cover her. so i lend and share my umbrella to her and we walk on under my umbrella. after that, we started to talk and share ideas until we became good friends and get close to each other. but, we got separated when she got married, so i was left all alone since i am still single. then after that, i found a new friend. wherein, i also found a good company to be with.

Ah, and it's because they want to pursue different careers and move out of the country. I actually like where I live, haha (Australia).

My best friend and I met in Italy 14 years ago. We are both Danish and we were both on vacation in Italy. While we were there we sometimes had dinner together and we talked for hours. Before we went back to Denmark we exchanged addresses and phonenumbers. Some time after we got back he called me and asked me if I wanted to meet. We agreed to meet and have dinner in town, and we had a great time together just like we had in Italy. We didn't live in the same part of the country, but we visited eachother every once in while and sometimes we drove around and visited new places together. Now we have been friends for 14 years and we still love to spend time together. I am married now and he has a girlfriend so when we meet are 4 instead of 2, and his girlfriend and I have become good friends.

14 years is a long time :P Grats for holding onto it for so long. Ah, yeah, my closest friends live further away than my other friends. I visit my other friends because they literally live like a 15min walk away. It's nice that you guys take the effort to visit each other every once and a while :3

I always end up making friends with someone who is not really my type, someone with totally different likes/dislikes, someone totally opposite of me. But may be i dig those qualities in them, so that we do not get bored when we meet every day..

Mhm, I found that I do that too. However with my friends, there needs to be some sort of common ground. Recently a friendship of about 3 years dissipated due to long distance and the fact that we've changed. only thing that held us together for so long was our memories.

I've only got one best friend, and I'm sure he would anything for me. This guy has been there for me as long as I can remember. We were born at the same time. Most of the worries and problems of life are simple for this guy, He just seems to have the right answer! I'd be lost without him. Every time I look within I see myself in him, because I am my own best friend!

Well, I met my best friend when I was at 10 or 11 years old. He's two years older than me. It was a summer break and I met him playing with the kids on my street. It appears that he's studying in my school. We started to hand out and sharing thinks. When I was 15 and he was 17 we went to the same problems and help each other and we become even more closer. Basically we were getting more closer every year. And till now we are best friends. We were always together and I'll never forget the things that he did to me.

That's nice :3 I've met some pretty cool people that I casually talked to while I was bored at school. Usually around the printers when I was printing my assignments. We were in different year levels, so eventually the connection fizzled out. I would wonder sometimes, of the what if ^^

I was good friends with a woman whose children were friends with mine in grade school. She introduced me to her friend from high school and we just casually knew each other for years. You know, just enough to say hello. I ran into her at Walgreen's one evening, we exchanged email addresses and became very close. Our friendship has been extremely close for the last 5-6 years and we do meet regularly for lunch to to have a bite to eat for dinner. She has a heart of gold and is a wonderful friend. As far as the friend who introduced me to her, we aren't close any longer. She had a different lifestyle as she became older and we gradually grew apart. I do keep in touch with her once in awhile.

I met my best friend who is still my best and still we meet, when i was in 2nd grade. My friend didnt liked me at first. I too hated him. He had a small gang of friends. They liked me and they started talking to me. My buddy didnt liked that. So he started arguing with his gangs and one day his gangs left him and they came to me. My friend was sitting alone. I felt bad and i talked to him saying that i am a nice person. I didnt came here to take your place. Its all yours. He he it was a beautiful moment. Then later after so much talkings and arguments we bacame friends for 3rd grade and we never broke our friendship. We still meet and today he has an interview and I wish him all the best.

I have three best friends actually, although the other 2 and I have been known by others as a group because we've been close since 1st Grade, the other one, Irene, is my most special friend I believe. I'm not the kind of person who approach others and I just realized recently that most of my friends had been my friends because they're the one who approached me first. However, I have a different case with Irene, I was the one approached her first and not to make friends with her for that matter I actually had a different intention. We've been classmate all throughout high school and we've started as friends later in freshman. I saw her sticker collection, I was an anime lover and saw that she has this rare sticker from one of my most favorite anime back then. I was actually asking her to sell it to me, to the point that the price was even higher on how the sticker regularly costs in the market but even if the price I offered is really high, she didn't give in to my bargain. It was actually hilarious whenever I reminisce how we've first interacted. We've gone to an acquaintance/classmate, customer-forced-seller, to the best of friends. :D

Well, for me, in making friends; I first choose people who i want to get along with. People who is interested in the same things i am interested to and people who is my complete opposite. I do this to study human behavior as well as the circumstances affecting such behaviors. I made some friends by sharing them a movie that i liked. Luckily, they accepted me. We go to eat sometimes and even bond at crazy places. But of course, we set up our group's moral views and practices to avoid trouble even though we are quite philosophers trying to bend questions and playing pranks - sometimes. Anyway, i hope you make a lot of friends and influence them. Have a great day.
