  • Besides my hubby, Nope. Only friends I have are online actually. I prefer it that way to be honest. I'm a bit anti-social, and friends tend to let me down anyway. I've long since resigned myself to never finding someone that can be depended upon besides DH.

  • Aside from my husband I have one best friend. I have tons of aquaintances but my best friend and I are inseparateble :)

  • Nope. Everyone I've trusted with my friendship has either abandoned me or stabbed me in the back. I have very little faith in humankind.

  • Yes I do. I am 22 yrs old....weve been friends since 7th grade. It sucks because we live in different states but everytime we talk or are together it's like nothing has changed. Really though...everyone else are just aquaintances.

  • Yes I have several; all of the people I consider real friends I have been friends with since elementary and middle school, two of my best friends I've known since 1st grade, another I met in 7th grade. I'm not sure exactly what has kept us so close over the years, too many people I know grow distant after school ends and I could say a lot of it is similar life experiences following high school - such as getting married and/or having kids, or getting into the same or similar careers but I've got close friends who are still single, working regular hourly jobs, have no kids, and simply still share mutual interests and usually that isn't much to keep a close friend but for some reason it works for us.

  • Yes I do, we have been best friends for 30 years.... her family moved back to Germany (when she was a teen) and we have not seen each other in 12 years.... the last time she was over here it was right after my 2nd son was born. We stay in touch thru email, snail mail, and phone calls. It is my dream to someday go to Germany and visit her.

  • My husband first, then my sister. My mom and my sister were equally my best friends (after my husband) before my mom died. Those are the people who genuinely know me, and love me despite that!
