    3 Best Friends!!

    2 boys and a girl!! but personally what I have observed is -- it is the person and not gender that is important in friendship.. but I consider myself lucky having this mix..!

    He's My Bff, Closest Friend I've Ever Had But Am I Threatening It?

    My best friend and I are SUPER close, I don't use the term best friend lightly; he truly is, and we're closer than most people are to their 'best friends'. Unfortunately, after two years of enjoying this relationship, due to mephedrone (legal drug) and alcohol; we had sex...

    My Best Friend ....

    My relationship with my best friend started over 10+ years ago. We have always been able to talk about any and everything, there are no limitations or judgements imposed on our friendship although neither one of our spouses are too crazy about it. This man has listened to me...

    Please Come Back

    Dear Friend, It has been a long time since you left. I have seen you since but it isn’t the same. We haven’t been together for long compared to some but since we met we have been inseparable. Not a day would go by without us at least talking. Most days were spent...

    He wrote this in my Christmas card.

    We've been friends since middle school, minus the 5 years we didn't talk in our 20s. I thought it was sweet.

    My Dearest Friend Is Gay

    and a guy. We love movies - marathons are the best! Since I moved to Colorado he flies out every few months and we spend a week together. My partner thinks he's a really special guy - he's Mormon, returned missionary. He lives in a predominately LDS community so he's absolutely...

    My absolute best friend is also my ex-boyfriend.

    It's not really weird because we didn't date for long and that was a while ago. The only thing that makes it woes is that he knows that I love him. And I know that he loves me. But he has a girlfriend. His girlfriend obviously hates me and therefore won't let us do stuff...

    and became best friends around 16. When we were 20 we had a falling out and didn't speak for 5 years. Now we are 25 and we reconciled this year and it was like nothing even happened. We usually talk to each other about our dating/crush problems and today I mentioned that I...

    Unexplainable Situations

    This isn't a romantic way, or anything like a relationship. Even though I slept with him twice I still can't see him in that way and he still sees me the same. We hold hands when on holiday together, we will share a bed and have just cuddles. He will cheer me up when I'm down and...

    What I Have Learned From My Best Friend.

    That  a man can hurt as deeply as a woman can hurt.  That a man can be sensitive and crave intimacy not just a sexual act.  That a man also can hide his pain behind laughter.  That a man can worry when I am ill and send his love to me from across the...

    for a reason and that you meet everyone that you meet for a reason. Most of my friends have been girls, but I've had one really good guy friend and this is the story of that. I had grown up in a different area of my state than where I live now. I moved here the summer before...

    Can A Married Man Be Close To Other Women?

    What do I do?  I've always felt more comfortable having relationships with girls.  I just don't find male relationships to be very sincere and fulfilling.  But, I'm married and I hate how my wife gets jealous even when I insist over and over that it's just...
