    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...

    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...

    I am male and 61 and my best friend is a

    lesbian, I think the world of her. In fact I have 4 other lesbian friends. We get on really well and they have been very supportive of me since I lost my late wife. I don't care if people think I'm strange because I like to chat with women more than men. I don't even mind my...

    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.

    He Has Become the Best Friend That I Have

    He has - we have known each other since 1983!  He was a constant in my life for awhile then we drifted apart due to different paths then he was back again for a bit, then drifted out again only briefly - the next time I heard from him, we decided to date and we did for quite...

    Long Time Friend With Benefits No More.

      It has been years since I have had sex with Jack, but he has been my best friend for over 20 years.  Jack is about 15 years older than myself, but his wisdom, sense of humor, and ability to listen and offer options has kept us together.  He started out just being...

    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...

    Your Pain Hurts Me.

    Since your accident last year, your life has changed in a negative way. You suffer constant pain. Your anguish and your despair are obvious. Alone during the day, you go about your life. You function as best you can. I admire your fortitude. I love you dearly. I feel your pain...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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).
