  • I am not close with very many people, but the few friends I have are great! They are my family b/c my actual family is 100 miles away. If I need something, I would not hesitate to call and ask for help. We do not talk everyday, but they know that I love them and value them very much.

    I don't want to be around those who pull me down.

  • I had a great support system with the best friends that anyone could ask for before I moved, I honestly dont think I could have survived the past year without them...unfortunately home is where the military sends us and I had to leave them all behind, I still talk to them but its not the same.

  • Yes, I have 4 amazing friends. I don't think there's anything they could do to be better. We are a very close group of peole. All 5 of us are best friends with each other. We have an amazing support system. We help each other, we love each other, we make each other laugh.. One of them is the father of my daughter, although we were never married, or even in a serious relationship. We're still best friends right now even though we have a child together and seperate lives.
    Two of the group are married and have 1 girl. Our kids are best friends and they're growing up like they're siblings.
    All 5 of us are like a big family. We see each other every day, we usually have dinner together, we share everything with each other..

    I love all 4 of them!!!!!

  • I really don't have any close friends, but my husband and I are still trying to get settled. Once we get settled, I will work on the whole friend thing

  • I only have a handfull of people that I can count on. My DF, 2 BFF's & my aunt, & my soon to be MIL. I would trust them with my life, more importantly, I would trust them with my DD's life. A good friend is someone that I can trust, that I can count on, someone who tells the truth, even if I do not want to hear it, someone who loves you even when you screw up, someone who will help you pick yourself up, dust yourself off & grow from your mistakes or setbacks, someone who stands by your side through thick & thin. I am lucky that I have a few that I know embody all of those things.
