Are you a good friend?

I try to be but sometimes it's hard for me to get close even to my friends.

  • I try to be, but if I don't see you, then I am a crappy friend. I never write, I generally don't call either. So as long as I see them often, then I am a good friend, but if I don't see them, I lose contact.
    My best friend moved to Portland 2 years ago and we are still close. She is like me, so I was worried we would lose touch. But we both have made a real effort to stay in touch. We call each other several times a week.

    Very true! I started college after I was married and had a child, so most of my friends are from college. I was the only one that was married and had kids. Now some of them are starting to marry and start families, but I have been married 12 years and have three kids.
    It is totally hard, when they all want to go out and party and I have to stay home with the kids. Now I just invite them over here and they come because I cook.

  • I am a very good friend. If I were my friend I would cherish me. I am supportive, honest, loyal, genuine, fun, adventourus, like to give gifts, keep in contact, always send a b day card and I would always, always have your back.

  • Very. I've known my best friend for almost 30 years. We've had our ups & downs, some differences, lots of fun memories, dealt with break ups, miscarriages, divorces, children growing and off to college, happy celebrations, our parents health issues, and so much more! I am a better wife/mother/human being because of my close friendships.
