Do you have REAL FRIENDS?

I am curious ... my father told me once when I was in high school, that if I live my life and have one handful of FRIENDS, than I have lived a rich life ..... hmmmm... i have not so far and I am "thirtysomething"...
How many of you have REAL friends? NOT ACQUAINTANCES .... I thought I had 3 over a period of 8 years... that has recently changed and slowly diminished ..... so I am curious...

  • I have three true friends and I believe that their husbands would also do anything for us. My husband is my best friend, and I highly recommend this for anyone getting married- that he should be your friend before being your lover.

  • I am not big on friends. My kids are a handful and my friends were single don't like the baggage. My cousin has been my BFF since I was 15 and her kids are just a little older, so I would say she is my only friend.. for reals or otherwise

  • I guess I am lucky. I have had more then a few true and good friends over the years. In fact some of my high school friends and I still talk more then a little bit and are very close and I am 37. I also have college friends and relatives (married into) that Im great friends with and would do anything for me and I for them.

  • Other than my SO, I have 3 real true friends that would see me through anything (and have). I think it is really important to have friends outside of your relationship though...that way you're not 100% dependent on him for your happiness because that is a lot of pressure on one person.

  • Nope not one. It's sad to me. My only friends are my family and my hubby. :(

  • I have 2 real friends.. others are just casual friends that I can't really count on, or don't see myself getting any closer with them. Tough thing is they both live so far away, so internet and phone are a must with them. True friends are definitely hard to come by.. but I'm thankful for the ones I have!

  • I've had a few people I thought were my friends over the years, but I've learned the only person I can trust is myself. Now I would say I have 2 true friends, people who have been there for me thru thick and thin, would give anything to help me through my troubles and Id do the same for them.
