Question of The Day - Wednesday, June 25th!

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Good Morning!

I have a friend visiting, who was my best friend in junior high school. Our families have known each other for ages...her mother used to babysit my dad and his sisters, when they were little.

Today's question:

Who is your best friend? Is it someone you've known since childhood or early school days? A person you met through work and really clicked with? A family member (sister, brother, cousin, mom, dad, aunt or uncle?) Or is it your spouse, or significant other?

I have a couple of close friends. DeeDee, who is vising now. Linda, who I've worked with for the past 20 years. Lura, who I worked with in Lansing (20 years ago.) My mom is also one of my best friends. At one time I would have listed my sister as my closest and dearest friend, but lately I've had to step back, because she is having too many personal problems and issues, and refuses to acknowledge them, or make any changes to help herself. I feel like I can't let myself get sucked into the black hole that she's letting herself fall into.

My best friend is actually someone I met online. We have known each other for a couple years now. She is someone I can always count on, can tell everything, can go to for advice and not be judged.

I only have a couple other close friends. A true friend is hard to find.

My best friend is Pam who i've known for over 20 years. We started out as neighbours on our old estate and the friendship took off from there, and she's only live a 5 minute walk from the house i'm in now.

My other close friends who i go out for dinner and drinks with are Andre, Lynn, Karen, Pat and Yvonne

I don't know where i'd be without my friends

My closest friend is also someone I met online~~Here! True friends most definitely are difficult to come by, and sometimes you meet someone and know it was just meant to be. I love her dearly. In fact, I'd say the vast majority of my closest friends I met right here in our wonderful community, friendships I know will last a lifetime!

I have known my best friend Sarah for 20 years, and we can read each other like books We only have to look at each other to know that something isn't right, or one of us has news....we have known each other since pre-school! (Aged 2)

My other close friend is Sam, and I worked with her on the Hospital wards 2 years ago, since then we have got on so well that we tend to tell each other everything...well, pretty much everything anyway

Though dad and hubby are close seconds, we just don't have that girly-bond, you know? Another one right up there is my friend from SAR (search and rescue). We've done TONS together. Worked together, lived together, volunteered together, saved lives together, hauled bodies together, gone to school together, you name it! We can also read each other like books. We often have conversations like:

"You know..."
"But I really don't!"
"I know!!"

And it makes total sense to us. Whereas my mom and I, we are just copies of each other. We'll say the exact same thing at the exact same time in the exact same way and then just start laughing!

My SO has been my best friend since the first day we met. Other than him, we both have the same best friend. I dated him in high school, and he used his first name. When he came back from the Navy, he was going by his middle name. My SO and I were both just so happy that our friends had come home, but we knew him by different names. Imagine my surprise when we went to his house to meet his best friend. I have known him around 30 years now, and we have never passed a hard word, but are all close enough to tell each other in very direct way if we think something is wrong. He just married a great gal and I am hoping one day that I will also be close to her. He said he had to discuss it with us before they got married. We have begged him not to marry several times, so he felt he should ask us first. My SO was the best man at the wedding, her daughter was her only bridesmaid. It was a beautiful wedding, outdoors at an old plantation house. My guy looked so handsome in his tux.

My one best friend, Rachael, has known me since kindergarten... over 20 years! We've been through a lot together, and she's one of the few people who gets my sense of humour.

My other best friend is Jenny, who I've known since second grade. We live close by and still get together about every week.

Oh, I have never answered one of these before, so here goes. I have a few best friends, honestly. My number one is absolutely my husband, Alfred. He is the first person in the world I want to tell anything to. We have been together for nearly 9 years (married for 4) and because we met when we were both quite young - I did a study abroad in England when I was 20 and met a dashing 23 year old MA student - we have kind of grown up together. Also, our relationship was long distance for quite a while - he is English and I am American, so we had to spend most of our time talking on the phone, e-mailing and writing letters. We HAD to talk if we wanted to stay together!

I am not particularly close to my family so HE is my family. I feel so lucky to have found not only a husband but a best friend.

My other three best friends I met when I moved from Casper, WY to Seattle, WA at the age of 9. There is Lori - who can read me like a book. We finish each others' sentences whenever we are together and have the same sense of humor. And the other two are Jeff and Scott. We have been thick as thieves since we were young teenagers and now, well, I don't really go a day without e-mailing them.

post #18 of 26
I have 2 best friends. My fiance is one of them. He is my best friend because I love him and plan to spend the rest of my life with him.

My other best friend is one of my friends since grade 5 or 6. We lost touch for a couple of years during college but when we started talking again it was like we never stopped.

I would have to say my OH is my best friend. Closely followed by my mum. Mum and were very good friends but she betrayed my trust a few years ago and left a void between us that we are struggling to to fill.

Besides my mom and my furkids..

My best friend is named Vanessa. I have known her since we were in the 5th grade. when we were younger we lived right across the street from each other which was awesome! I would always go over to her house, since we have always had pets she rarely came over to mine she LOVES them but she has asthma really bad. so we did everything together! we were really into ice hockey when we were younger for the guys. but the team got sold so we lost interest. she always loved fixing my hair and doing my makeup too. she still does. I think she should be a beautician seriously she is that good!

we have been friends for about 12 years and she is such an awesome friend, she always listens to me no matter what the situation and isn't judgemental of anything. We are very, very close and I thank God I have a friend like her. She is having her 3rd baby next month - another girl. and she's only my age. She has the patience of a saint! I love her girls they are a handful but atleast I can give them back.

I have two best friends. My husband, most definitely. We are 100% there for each other no matter what. We can talk about anything. We were friends first, anyway.

I also have a best friend who lives in Indiana. We met when we were five years old (16 years ago). We lost touch for awhile, and then in high school we met up again. We didn't even realize who one another was until she started talking about a dog I had when I was younger that she would come play with when hanging out with me. We were inseparable afterwards, until I moved to NC in 2004 and she was still in NJ. I then moved to SC and she moved out to IN. We still keep in touch and reminisce about all the wonderful times we had when we'd hang out. We're still there for each other when needed, too

My best friend is definitely my boyfriend. We're always there for each other, and can talk to each other about anything. My other is definitely my mom.

I had another best friend, who was a girl, but we had a falling out, and while we're still friends, we're not as close as we were in college. We use to hang out all the time, and text and call each other constantly. And then she got a boyfriend. And it was like I disappeared. I miss my college days.

I don`t really have a best friend right now. That`s not to say I don`t have friends, just nobody that close right now.

I did know a girl who I met when we lived in the same building a few years back. We got on so well and had such a good laugh but we lost touch about 6 months ago.

However, I`ve just signed up to Facebook ( something I swore I`d never do! ) and have found a lot of old friends from college wwhich is really great. I`m enjoying catching up with everyone.

My best friend would have to be my SO. We've been together for 2 and a half years and I couldn't imagine life without him. I've had troubles making good friends that I trust so right now the only "friends" I have besides my SO would be my family.
post #26 of 26
My best friend is Sue. I've known her for 31+ years. There are times where we may not talk to each other or see each other for months or years at a time. But when we do it's like no time has passed.

We have been thru good times, bad times and some strange times (I could tell some stories) and always been there for each other.
