    I try to be and I think I am.

    The issues come in where I have weak friends and strong friends. The weaker friend(s), for example, has been just pushing me with repeated errors in choices, which creates drama in their life and eventually burned me out. I feel like this type of person is not capable of or...

    I don’t consider myself a good friend,

    but deep down I think I am. If you're my friend, I will care for you no matter what. Even if at times I tend to avoid you for several days, I will still want to check up on you. I still wonder about how you are feeling and doing. I am a person who is afraid, but if you want me...

    My Thoughts

    Not to get into really much of details, just felt I needed to find a way to clear my head on some things. Decided to come back on here. Hopefully this time I won't make it something I regret.. Yet again, you ask simple question or something and people can't be serious about it...

    Can Be Easily Left Out

    I Try to Be

    I would hope that my friends know that they can count on me for anything. If I can help in any way, I will. Even to lend an ear when they need to talk, sometimes being quiet is the best thing. Just to let them know there is someone listening, without judgement.

    I Am a Good Friend.  In F...

    I am a good friend.  In fact I have 2 best friends and the 3 of us have been inseparable since we were 10. (that's 18 years!)  We still hang out at least twice a week.  We even still have sleep overs!

    I will try my very best to be a good friend.

    I am a firm believer that you should take friendships as seriously as relationships. Because when times get tough, your friends are there for you. You should be a friend worth having, because then you know your friends have a good friend at their side

    A Friend In Deed

    If you are a friend of ours you are entitled to our concern, care and companionship. If you need more than that, like a place to stay, money, etc.. You'll probably receive it.

    One of my friends just went into Rehab.

    He has quite the dramatic story going on, and I have been doing my best for a few months to help as much as possible. I'm not going to use real names in this - just because it's not my story and I don't want to cause anyone any extra grief. So, I met Matt about 8 months ago...

    What Is A Good Friend?

    A good friend is someone who believes in you, won't ever steal from you or cheat you. A real friend stands by you when the going gets tough and laughs with you in good times. A true friend would never hurt you intentionally and is a big enough person to tell you they are sorry...

    So, I'm a good friend.

    Or, used to be, anyway. A lot of stuff has happened this last year-span. I think I'm leaving my "good friend" ways behind.

    I Will Always Be A Good Friend To Anyone, But I Have Also Learned Who To Trust.

    I was married to a guy I thought was my best friend, but the night before the wedding he showed his true colours. I was hit, threatened, cheated on, lied to, and stolen from. After 20 years I got the courage to leave him, and found a guy on the internet and fell in love. That was...

    So a while back I met this really cool girl.

    She's a very sweet person, and she's overall really nice to me (and everyone else I hope). She is a pretty good friend who I hope to meet someday. Last but not least, she's really cute, and I hope we can continue talking for a while.

    In real life as well as here, I have people I like and people I don't like. That's it. Sometimes I comment, sometimes I just rate the story and "like" the comments and leave. I don't expect people to comment on my stories. I like it of course when there's comments, but it is not...
