    I Don't Have One.

    A best friend is something I have always wanted but have never had. I really would love to have one, but for some reason I feel like I just repel any chance that I get. I haven't met anyone recently who I would want to spend most of my free time with, even though I want to. I don...

    My friends all have their own best friends.

    I'm just that friend that people turn to when they need someone around. That spare friend.

    I miss having a best friend.

    :/ I got into an argument with my ex-best friend a few months ago and now she refuses to associate with me. Don't get me wrong, I didn't want to talk to her for the longest time, but now I'm regretting not just sucking it up and apologizing for stupidity. -_-

    I actually don't have a girl best friend.  Do I miss that?  I don't really know.  I used to like having a few friends or aquaintances and right now, it doesn't really bother me.  I like my time too.  If its meant to be, it will and if not, I'm just as happy.  Sometimes it...

    Okay, I'm writing on a this online friend/thingy. Never thought I would ever be doing this.  It, however, came to my attention that I don't have any best friends.  I have a whole bunch of aquaintances, but no one I would trust with any of my deepest feelings.  ...

    Every "best friend" I've ever had has left me,

    stabbed me in the back, been two-faced, or just turned on me over a stupid rumor. So, I've given up on the thought.

    She threw me in the trash,

    and after I took the blame so many times, and jumped straight in the fire for her, I guess she didn't appreciate me. I did some stupid things, but I always apologised, I always asked her how I could make it better. But I guess I'm just not good enough for people.

    My boyfriend is my best friend and he's a wonderful one at that. Other than him, the people I feel most comfortable with are my parents. When I was a kid, up until some point in high school, I had a female best friend, we used to call each other up on the phone after school and...

    I don't have a best friend, and I get mad at people who flaunt theirs.

    I know most of the posts in this thread were written over a year ago, but I may as well contribute - I feel this is such a worthy topic to keep alive. I haven't had a best friend for several years, in part due to the fact that I married young; but at this point in my life (mid-3...

    All they do is bum you for things and stay at your house. As much fun as that sounds I would rather stay at home alone, doing this.

    How Do You Make A Best Friend?

    I've never had a best friend. I've had friends, I've had good friends. I've never had a best friend. Why? It's because I don't know how to make one. Do you propose it to a the friend? "Hey, will you be my best friend?" Does it just come to both of them by magic? Does Chuck...

    Sometimes I'd see this movie,

    or something will happen and I'd really wish I had a best friend to share it with. And I'll start wondering how I have no best friends, or any friends for that matter. Then I go out; I get anxious and rush back in. And then I'm like - Oh.

    I don't have a best friend.

    Plain and simple. I have plenty of friends, and don't have problems making them. But I think I've been making all the wrong types of friends. The ones that I would do anything for but the favor hasn't ever really been returned. And up until recently, I've been okay with that...

    And right now, I'm okay with it.

    I mean, It's nice to have someone you can confide in, who knows mostly everything about you, who can be your memory keeper, who knows you all too well to be just an ordinary human being who happened to be fond of you. It's nice, but maybe, just maybe, best friends aren't for...
