    It's All Inside My Head...

    I know that imaginary friends are for little kids, and that they say you grow out of it. Well, evidentally not. When I was around 8 years old, I made up a friend to "talk" to inside my head. I named her Loretta, and created a unique personality for her...

    Jase, My Jase.

    None of my "imaginary friends" last very long but I have projections of these warm souls whenever I'm in a rough patch. Somehow, over the years, my imaginary friends have become weaker and weaker, and appear lesser. When I was 14, I had an imaginary best friend- a boy my own age...

    Her name is Autumn Samantha Lynn. She's my bestest friend in the whole wide imaginary world. I love her to death & she ain't never gonna disappear. Unlike other "friends" I've had. She's ALWAYS there. : )

    Evolved Gods

    I'm not sure about the "imaginary" tag - depending on your definition of reality, an entity that exists in your imagination is still real, in some way...anyway, I'm digressing. I still have an "imaginary" friend, or companion - she sort of evolved out of the...

    Penny

    Penny is imaginary, but I'm not sure if she's my friend. She is a completely different person than me, not to mention a little psychotic. And she has a very freaky left eye o.O I'm not really sure when I first came up with her, or why I did in the first place, but we get along...

    Wilbur The Brave

    He fought my demons under the bed, guarded my hidden fortress, and stole my mothers keys. Wilbur was amazing, but many people feared he would harm me. It was odd that a little girl would have a large bearded man as an imaginary friend, even more odd that things went missing often...

    Him...

    He's there. I haven't talked to him in quite a while, because my counselor told me that I should get rid of him. The relationship was starting to get unhealthy. But somewhere, in the back of my mind, he's still there, and I still love him. Sometimes I want him back so much...

    When I was four I had an imaginary friend, her name was Mrs Minimini. She lived in our coat closet at home. This was a cool coat closet because it went on and on forever( well it seemed that way to a four year old). I would go in there and play with her. We would have tea...

    I have an imaginary friend.

    I didn't give her a name yet and she's pretty upset with me for it. Some of my friends think that it's weird for me to have her around all of the time but most of the time I don't know how to send her away. I don't mind her company at all but she scolds a lot. She went away for...
