    My Bff

    Its 15+ years now and my Bestie & I are still in the making of the greatest friendship we both find in each other.  The road has not been picture perfect for our friendship but the good always conquers the bad in the end.

    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...

    She Is My Wife.

    It's not one of those "I married my best friend" stories.  We fell in love/lust, then got married.  Then the love grew, and we grew into best friends (she is my best friend anyway, she may have some girlfiend that she considers her 'best friend' though).

    Ah Well

    Yep I have 2 best guy mates. No offence intended to the girls (I am one!) but I just prefer hangin out with the boys. I find it more amusing and less serious. They're also up for more adrenalin rush activities which is what I like. I don't want to be stereotypical here but...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    The End Of A Long, Winding And Slippery Road

    For me, the road to finding a really good friend from the other half of the population has been a long, winding and slippery one, but in time I found my balance. It started at college, where I (having previously been at an all-boys school) for some reason found myself...
