    My Best Friend In The Whole World

    He's awesome. Our personalities connect like pieces of a super easy puzzle. I've always been a tomboy at heart and we both have the same favorite activity. Videogaming. Not the lame type, I'm talking about the playing call of duty for hours on end while listening to epic music...

    My best friend is not only a guy

    but he is 30 years younger than me. I can tell him anything and he does not judge me. I am a relationship runner. I run if I start feeling to close to a man I am seeing. My friend recently convinced me to not run from the man I am seeing. I listened and it was good advice. My...

    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.

    He's been my bud for 15 years.

    We met in college, and we've seen each other through relationships (both good and bad) and new jobs and changes of address. MHe threw me in a pond once, and I forgave him instantly for ruining my shoes. I once backed into his car, and he was completely unfazed. When I...

    He'S Amazing!

    He's so amazing and we get along so well. We can literally look at each other and know what the other is thinking. He doesn't cause drama and he gives me great advice. His little sister and brother are also so adorable. I love him and his entire family so much.

    My best friend is a guy,

    and I have no problem saying it. Why do I need a girl best friend when every one that I've had has just kinda left my life? And I find that a guy best friend is better than a girl. I'm comfortable around him, I can be myself, and it's just fun. :)

    Awkward Situation

    I've been best friends with him for about 4 years and constantly we get people thinking we go out. Yet when we try to explain that we are just best friends close to be siblings, people don't want to accept it lol. They want to believe that our future will lead us to be in love.
