Do you value your friends? Are you a friendly one? Im a kind of person who is friendly and values friendship always. Although i dont know what's the name of a person as long as we are friends in thoughts, i value it. Friends are the ones whom i can have fun with and just go with the flow. I super love my friends and i can't replace them by money or any thing. I have many close friends, a proof that i am loyal and true to them.

people i know i know them from school. so i have developed a certain bond with them, more like a relative bond rather than friendship bond. so my friends are more like a family member than friends.

I do value my friends very much, but, honestly, I don't want them hanging around all the time. I love getting together with them for social events, but here in my middle years I've really learned to value alone time and time with just my husband, grown kids, and grandkids. I have a fairly set routine for my weekdays and while I don't mind helping a friend out if they need it, I don't really want to spend a lot of time in idle chatter, gossip, or anything. I like my own company during the day when I work from home.

I have a lot of friends but there's only a few of them that consider to be close friends. They are the ones that have been tested over time and whom which I've gone through with a lot of things, both in laughter and in tears. And I value my friends a lot. Even though, we've been physically apart for years now due to our career path. We remain best of friends and communicate regularly. We also take every chance there is when we can meet and be together again. I am not the friendly type, I don't initiate conversations especially with those I've just met. But when a person approaches me, I am receptive and accepting because I also like to have many friends.

Of course I have friends. I do treasure all my friends too. Cause I have similar concept about friend just like you. Am I friendly? I think yes, but I faced tough time to make friends. Why? This is due to my natural face that has fierce look even when I'm not fierce/angry at all! Most of my friends commented me that their first impression on me was I look as fierce as a tiger!!! Sigh. But thank God I still manage to have lot of close friends now!!!

There was a time in my life when i had many friends. But now everyone has moved to different places and are extremely busy with their lives. BUt we do make it a point to meet once in a blue moon and keep each other updated about the latest things happening in our lives. ~Pinks~

I feel the same way as you do. I have many friends that are very close to my heart. I would do just about anything for them. I have lived so far with them. I mean they've helped me through so many rough times and they still help me. I just don't know what to do without them. I appreciate all of my friends. And I know that they know I do. I make the best of my times with them. I've moved away from just about all of them and yet I still talk to them on a regular basis. Maybe not every single one of them but I talk to as much as I can. I never lose touch and if I do I search for ways to keep in touch. I love my friends.

I too value my friends. I am 56 years old and live 1,000 miles from where I was born and raised. I still do have 2 close friends from my childhood,we talk on the phone often, and communicate via e-mail all the all the time. I also have a few very close friends here too. And They are always in my thoughts and prayers. There is nothing i would not do for them.They have been there for me so many times when I really needed them. We can call one another to talk about anything. They are there for me in good times and in bad times. no amount of money in the world can replace a good friendship.

I used to think like you. I use to have friends that I value until I became positive and lost my high paying job then all those so called friends who I used to help is nowhere to be found. Some people are hypocrites and so I have stop being friendly. Now I am more on the computer socializing there is no harm in doing that. But everyone need a friend so continue be who you are.

That is great that you have some really close friends. I guess I have come to a point in my life where I am 'between' friends. Those who were the people I used to hang around with have gone off in on direction and I have gone to another. Call it 'adult ADD'...we all get into our little schedules and lose track of each other. Add kids the to mix and time no longer becomes your own. It would be so great to have strong friends like you have! Cherish it! :-)
