Family is someone we have always known where frieds are someone we have met and liked because we share the same interests , find them funny or just have a connection with them , so when you have a problem in life who do you trust more , your family or your friends and why ?

I trust my friends more then my family. You can't pick your family but you can pick your friends and family does not always have your best interests in life. Friends take the time to listen to you but family just wants to hear the good things and mine try to throw money at me to fix a problem when sometimes you just want to talk and don't want money. So friends for me all the way. Even friends we might not be friends with in years to come but you might not be talking to family in yaers to come either. Family does not always treat me well.

Hi samtaylorskykierajen My closet family I trust but I do have some family members that I wouldn't trust ith a bar of chocolate not to eat it. I too have some friends that I would and wouldn't trust. Some family and friends have helped me with the troubles in my life and they are the one's I trust.

I trust them equally. I am close to my family and my friends and love them equally, too. My friends are my adopted family.

i don't have much immediate family left but my children who are grown. i have a couple or more friends i can talk to about anything. i would probably turn to them because it would be things i didn't wany to discuss w/my sons.

I think it depends on the kind of problem and your relationship with them!If you meet some problem about yourself and your family can not quite understand you, then you can resort to your friend. And sometimes something happens to your whole family, it is best to consult with your family for they are your most familiar people. And you also can ask both of them for help when meeting some other problems. Families are always your friends but friends are not always families!

for me it's very personal. It depends on the person, not how well I know them. I have some friends that I trust more than some family members, and then I have some family members that I'd trust more than some friends. It really depends on the person in question, as opposed to the relationship.

well i trust my brother with my life. we are very close even thoguht we don't see each other that much. but other than that i trust my friends more. my family is not very supportive of me at all. they seem to love my husband more than me, most of the time. and i have a very close friend that i love to bits, and i trust her. she knows a lot about me and my life as i do hers. we live 7 hours from each other and that sucks, their is times i am getting ready to go out shipping and i will still pick up the phone to call her to be like are ya comming with me??? but we don't live 10 mins away from each other no more :( my family is just not the trusting type, i love my friends, and i hope and pray they do the same for me! :)

In general family, I have known them all my life, and they have always come through for me, so I would go with them 10/10 times. Not to say I don't trust my friends, but blood is blood if you know what I mean.

I think I am closer to my friends and I feel they are very much undersatnding and that does not mean I am not close to my family.I am but then there are certain things where we can be close to friends only. Regards

If i need someone to talk to, then I would go to my best friend or my sister. If i have something i need to talk to and I don't want anyone else to know, then i don't tell anyone. I trust myself to keep a secret. My grandmother use to say, if you have something you don't want anyone to know, then don't tell anyone. so that has been really great advice that i have held dear for a very long time

Well there are different kinds of problems for which i trust on my family and my friends. I trust my best friend more for problems as we both have the same level of understanding and we solve the problems very well... I think my friend suggest me the solution to the problem in a better way and i understand the problem very well.. "TRUST ON EACH OTHER.. is what we have built since we have met..". I escalate only those problems to my family which i think i can't get solution to..

I would trust my parents more than another family member or a friend in times of need. I do share some things with friends which I don't dare to share with parents. It depends on what is the situation involved.
