    My best friend has been in my life

    for 30 years. We started as boyfriend and girlfriend but we were young and ended up just being friends. I love him to death though. We have been through a lot of hard times together. I've bailed him out of jail and he's kept me from loosing my home. It doesn't feel weird to me...

    I met my now best friend

    when I was in preschool. But at that time, we HATED each other because we had a mutual friend who we fought over (the mutual friend was also a boy so my friend and I make the joke that we fought over a boy for 4 years) It was actually the mutual friend that brought us together...

    Caught naked in the shower-Helen

    and I have known each other from a young age, and have grown up being best friends. While she is very pretty, it is a purely platonic friendship and there are no feelings involved. One day 3 years ago (when I was 16) we were gone alone at her house looking after her little...

    We've been friends for about five years now

    and I can confide in him without any judgment (I hope he knows he can do the same with me). He's like a brother and is very protective and won't let me pay for food whenever we go to a restaurant, even though I always insist. So nice. Glad to have him.

    I still remember the moment I decided to trust

    him. My thought process was something along the lines of "Oh, **** it" - and it's been one of the best decisions of my life. I have never had a friendship like this. I can tell him anything and not be judged, and I know that he feels the same about me. We help each other and...

    I may be wrong, but I think my best friend was

    sexually attracted to me at the beginning of our friendship. - He told me his turn ons. - He asked me if I wanted to play the firetruck game more then on a few occasions. I never played it so when I asked how you play it, I was like "erm... no thanks". We never played it...

    He is the best friend anyone could ever have.

    He'll bend over backwards for you without even blinking! He is now my boyfriend and we still act like we're besties. Hopefully it'll never happen but, if we ever split up I know we'll still be this close.

    Best Friend Is An Understatement

    He fills my face with bliss. He calms my mind with hope. He fills my heart with love. He touches my soul with faith... There is a gentle, inviting belonging within him. And I always want to be in his life. He deserves everything he could ever dream of.

    My best friend is a guy. And he is the first friend where I don't feel like I am second best to someone else and could never compare or I am just someone to pick and choose from a crowd when they feel like it. We both love psychology and philosophy and mainly thinking. Which is...

    It can sometimes be a bad thing.

    I have a friend (male) and he has a girlfriend and I have a boyfriend. We were joking around just us two then he grabs my b**b more than once which led to a breakdown in friendship. So be careful

    He genuinely believes

    that I'm a guy. Whenever someone is talking about girls or women and say my name he'll tell them "oh, but she's not a girl, she's a dude!"

    This is quite funny but most of my opposite

    gender best friends' names contain 'Steve' in it; a lot of Stevens and Stephens and one Stefanus some Steves some Stephan one Stefano. I met a new 'Steven' almost every year in new classes and we become best friend just like that it's quite fun for me!
