    I Have 2???

    I use to say I have 2 real friends on this earth.  But one tried to hit on my wife and the other barely if ever bothers to call anymore.  So, I guess I'm my only friend at the moment.  It's a good thing I rock...

    Friendless

    I look back on my life and often wonder why I do not have any friends.  I wonder where I went wrong and how I can at least have one true friend before I get to old to even bother.  I often wonder what it would be like to hang out with then, do fun...

    But a Few Great Ones . . .

      When I needed someone to listen, you were there. When I needed a shoulder to cry on, you were there. When I needed to be held, you were there.   Thank you - to some of the best friends I have.

    The Solid

    That's what we called it.  And how you knew you had a true friend. You might never even really get to know the person. But at that moment, when it came down to it, they were there for you. Or, you for them.  Some gestures of friendship are completely unselfish. With no thought...

    High School V. Rest of Life

    Of all the friends i had in high school, I only talk to maybe two of them still on a couple times a month basis. My female friends wound up the same way.  Consider the fact that the only lifelong, friend I've had, is one that I've known since I was 10. I met him the...

    I Have Close Friends, But...

    For some reason, every couple of years I lose touch with close friends and make new ones. Since I'm in my early 20s and going from high school to college to grad school brings a change of friends anyhow, I'm not surprised by it, but I can't help to stop and think if there's...
