i am very close to a couple of members of my family, but that's the way i like it. my mum, dad, brother, granny (mum's mum) and grandad (mum's stepdad) are the closest ones. i dont really talk to many of the others, and have never been close to my cousins, but i do like being as close as i am to the few family members that i mentioned. what about you?

Yeah i am. I'm quite close with my mom than my dad though because dad works in a different city that's why i really don't get to spend some more time with him to bond. I'm pretty close with my aunts too but there are cousins on my dad's side where i am not close. I don't think they like me. lol! We don't spend time to hang out. I have no problems with my siblings. We're close.

Only my mom. I am the only child in the family so I have no bro & sis. I am not close to my dada. That don't mean I don't love him. It's just we cannot communicate. Not either my mom thinks she can communicate with him. I am too much like my mom. Well, then, that's the family member I am close to. I am not at all close to my cousins nor aunts / uncles. To be honest, I don't like my aunts & uncles. I try to avoid them as much as possible 'cause they are the gossip type which I really hate. Helping you to spread your details and forcing you to listen to someone's nonsense. They are just group of "housewives" (excuse me to the real housewives) one always see in the market!

Family is very important to me, I come from a family of 3 brothers and 4 sisters, my mom passed when I was 12 years old. I was brought up by my grandparents from both sides. I'm now 48 years and make it my business to keep close contact with all my family members: My Dad, aunts, brothers, sisters, cousins and in laws not to mentioned my friends from school days and those I've met through work. I remember all their birthdays and make it my business to call those that are living in a different country, visit those that are living not too far away and try my utmost to attend every single birthday celebration of each of my siblings. To me that's the most important part of living, being with those I love very much. We have a system in our family when there's a big celebration i.e our Dads 70th birthday or our aunts 70th birthday or my husbands 50th birthday to put money together and pay the tickets of those who are not financially able to fly in and be part of the celebration. If one of us are strained for money due to world circumstances we all pitch in to assist that family member. Yes family and friends are very important to me. Someone has to be there to keep the peace between family, why not me!

As for me,I have a very close relationship with my family. They gave me a lot of good suggestions when I was in trouble. I am very appreciated the support which was given from my family.

I love my family. I am very close, I know almost exactly what they are thinking. If you know the show mentalist, I think I am like him at home. I can assume everything, and it is always right. I can somehow know what they are doing, and what they think they are doing, and what they know they are doing, I know that is an extreme sentence that may overload your brain.

I am close with a couple of people in my family. My sisters and I have a great relationship! It is nice to know that they will always be there for me if I need them, no matter what! My mom and I can talk about anything, which is really nice. I dont know where I would be in life without her! My Dad has always been fantastic. He has helped me out with so many things through the years. I definitely wouldnt be where I am today without him! My husband is the greatest. He is, obviously, the one that I am closest to! I would be completely lost without him! I am also blessed with great in-laws. They drive me crazy sometimes, but I am sure I do the same to them!

To be completely honest, I'm not really close to my family. It's been a while, since we've actually been close to each other. I'd have to say that I'm closer to my fiance's family than I am to my own family. I find that it's a little strange, but at the same time, it's not really that strange, at all. But I guess that that's the way that life goes.
