So who do you consider your best friend? The one you can share secrets with and you know your friend will go to their grave with the secret still all locked up in their head. The one who is always on your side even if you are wrong. They have your back? They are with you on good and especially bad days? I have one...only one person in my life like this.

this may sound weird, but after the last instance when my "best friend" no longer treated me as a best friend, i stopped calling my close friends as "best friends" i do have a "de facto best friend" though. we're best friends without the label. i just find it disappointing that my previous so called best friends no longer treat me the way i treat them. .

Hi Ajlasent, It makes me sad when I hear that your best friend has thrown you away. All I can say is they actually did you a favor because we all deserve better then that. The time you wasted on that person is time you can now spend with those that really[i][/i] care about you. I'm soon to be 62 years old..I am realizing that I only need people in my life that truly care about me. People that make me feel like a better person sometimes make me become a better person because they think I am. Hopefully we will become mylot friends. oxxo

I would love to be myLot friends, raydene! :) I know, it happened when they found someone who got to spend more time with them because they were classmates and we were no longer in the same class. i gave my efforts though, but i just didn't feel welcome to the group that much. .

I only have one best friend in thie whole wide world. We have been friends for over 14 years. We have done fun things together, and we have been in trouble together. We have had a few ups and downs, but our friendship has never been destroyed. We love each other like sisers, and we have shared so many secrets that it is just amazing. The importance of that type of bond is unblemished and extremely sacred. Everyone deserves atleast one best friend that they can always count on and lean on no matter the circumstance or situation.

I have learnt in the past that no matter how much you think you know your friend, or more to the point how much you thought you could trust a friend, some how they turn out not to be truested. I also can not see the point of having a best friend, as a friend is a friend no matter what, I would never say that I have a best friend, as all my friends are equal and have individual personalities.

I have a lot of friends,but only have a little true friends. They are who we walk together but no talk,we don't feel embarrassed. If we start talk,we can say anything to each other.

My best friend is my boyfriend. We've been together 2 and a half years now and we plan on getting married once he's out of the army. He also considers me to be his best friend and we can tell each other anything and feel comfortable talking about it. We also have a good time whenever we're together and we just love to be with each other. Occasionally we do have our little arguments but they quickly blow over and we're back to how we normally are. He's the only one who can put a smile on my face when I'm in the worst mood. When he knows I'm angry with him he makes me laugh no matter how hard I don't want to. He's everything to me and even though he's away in the army and far away from me, he's still my best friend and I always look forward to his visits home.

I had one, but after some problems that kept increasing, I finally had it when we were out in a group with tens of thousands of people to view the fireworks and she publicly embarrassed me. I left with a good friend of mine who happened to be along with his daughters and he walked me to my car. I was beyond furious with her and just cut if off completely. We had secrets between us that I won't ever reveal, but more so because they'll be humiliating to ME; frankly, I could care less about her feelings. Now I am very cautious because I don't wish to be burned again.

My best friend is my handsome husband Randy. I married my best friend 5 years ago and he is the best man in the world. We have been through so much together and will be together for the rest of our life together. He is a wonderful man and I am so glad that I found the man of my dreams.

Maggiepie and the roomie are the two "besties" I have. They would both be there for me, but neither of them would be able to pick me up if I needed a ride. Granted they both have good reasons. I don't think I have a lot of friends, but the ones I have are really good ones!

My husband is my best friend. I also count my daughter as a good friend. In addition I have three friends that are not related to me. We trust each other, even though we are different, and those differences seem to feed personal growth.

i read somewhere that the only way you can be a good friend to others is to be a good friend to yourself. so i try to be my own best friend first. you know, you cannot give what you don't have? if you don't have love, cannot share secrets, cannot share the pains of your friends, how can you give them these things. so, first, as the philosophers would say, start by being your best friend. but be careful of being selfish and falling into self worship. then, go out of yourself and look around for people who share the same interest as yourself. in real life and on virtual life, like on mylot. best friends can come and go, but friends will always be forever.

I have three best friends. I am female and they are male so it is always very interesting when we go out together. A lot of my other friends don't understand why or how I could possibly spend so much time with so many men, and I can't explain why I get on with them so much better than any of my female friends, but all I do know is that they are the best friends that I have ever had, and we really do have a lot of fun. We live a while apart at the moment but we are all coming back together soon and that will be absolutely amazing.

I have many friends. And some are of my best friend. And it is very difficult if I choose anyone and tell that is my best friend. I want to say that friends are very important part of our life and they always help us without any reason. Friends make our life meaningful. So I always give value to my all friend. My all friends are my best friend.
