  • Friends come and go, but family is in the stars. My immediate family is the most supportive. Haven't had any friends since I left the work force.

  • It would be my family, but none of them live near me, so I depend on friends. I have a small group of trusted friends. I see my family whenever possible, and the older I get, the more they mean to me.

  • I don't have anybody withing 900 miles. I would choose my family if were back home. My friends are not as reliable. My mom is my best friend and we have the same interests and sense of humor.

  • Family, but ONLY my mom, DD & DH. The rest are assholes!


    Answer by samurai_chica at 9:09 AM on Nov. 30, 2010

  • I am close with my family but closer with friends. My family lives far away and we are the only ones with kids.
    My friends are in the same place in life as me and so we can talk about our marriages/kids/struggles and we watch each others kids.
    My family is wonderful and I love them but they don't always "get it".
