    You know you're in love with someone

    when their happiness makes you much more happier, and their sadness feels more like your own pain.

    Several weeks ago I met a woman in this site.

    I saw one if her shared experiences and I felt compelled to leave a comment, which she liked. She saw my profile and shared experiences and became interested in knowing more about me. She messaged me and we began talking. Two people talking quickly turned into two people with...

    When you hit you're lowest point,

    you'll know who your real friends are. I prefer a small circle anyway.

    because no one in my mind can be trusted anymore.

    I neither need nor want a lot of people in my

    I never had a true friend

    and I hope one day that I will find one. and that's it. I don't want a big group of friends. just one or two that I can have fun with and get to know over many many years.

    Are You Looking For True Friends Or A Collection Of

    In reality, as well as online, I've always adhered to the concept of the quality of friendship vs Quantity. In other words, I'm not one to "collect" friends for the sole purpose of appearing popular or flitting about from person to person because with numbers someone is always...

    I also believe they come

    and go just like any other, what makes you a good friend is if you can let them come and go. Quality.

    here in this world. So I wanna give a shoutout to the true ones. The friends who are loyal. the friends you can completely trust with anything. friends who don't just run to you when they need/want something. the friends who don't use you. friends who actually wanna have a...

    Thus I keep my circle very small.

    ..I don't add to it until I feel a good connection first.

    I've always wanted many friends,

    but soon I realised it's better to have a few friends you trust than a lot of friends who stab you in the back at the first opportunity

    It's always about the quality

    and not the quantity. It's about knowing who is always gonna be in your corner at the end of the day. A person can have tons of friends but doesn't mean that all of them are going to be a real friend.

    Honestly, most people don't really like me

    and I've never been able to figure out why. Luckily though, I don't really like most people either. That's why I would rather have a few close friends, while not being surrounded by much of a crowd.

    and I have with each other. We don't always see each other, but when we do, it's like we never left. We're so close and trust one another to talk about anything and be completely open. It's so wonderful. I'm glad we're in each other life's and hope we'll always be.

    One part of being a volunteer firefighter is

    that you make some amazing friends. A small group of people, who will be by your side through anything and not ask questions. A small group of friends feels likes an extended family. Two in, two out.
