Hi friends, I am close to my family than to my friends, but i have friends that they seems to be more close to their friends than thier own family. Sometimes they ignore their family to be with their friends.

This is a pretty good discussion my friend and I know I am very close with most of my family and some of mine and my fiances friends and I know I have always been close with my mother and father even though when I was a kid my father was almost always out on a big rig trying to make money for our family,and I used to be close to mine and my fiances good friends,but most of them owe me money,and only come around when they want or need something,so we avoid them as much as possible,and I am especially close to my fiance,who is one of my best friends,she is also my soul mate,the love of my life,and the one I can not wait to marry,which we are getting married in September of next year,and I am also close to my other best friend which is like a brother to me,and he would do anything for me,and I would do anything for him,and we have the same birthday except I am three years older than him.

congratulation in advance to your wedding day. Im glad that you are family oriented person which is a preparation for having your own family next year. It is seldom now a days to see some one who are close to their family for they always choose their friends than their own family.

I am closer to my friends. I don't have anything in common with my family and they can be really annoying and tell me what I should do, and they decide everything for me. I don't have a voice at home.

Well yes im close to my friends. Some family you feel you were born to be stuck with... anyone agree with that? But some family members... brother and sister, friends that are dear to me like brother or sister are always dear to my heart. And i WILL defend them passionately more so than i would defend myself at times. A good friend, a dear friend wont require you to ignore anyone for them. If they ignore a family member for a friend the message is clear... low priority in comparison to another person.

i agree with you nodooa, There are families that are not in a good terms in a relationship, they prefer to with their friends than their own family for they feel more welcome and more love by them.Thanks for responding.

Both of them caused my friend is my family too. It will depends on what kind of friendship do we have. If she is my best friend I'm close also. An ordinary friend if ever not so close but they are still my friend no matter what. I like to have more friends because it's really a sort of happiness. We can learn so many things from them. :)
