    15 Years Thrown Away

    Sarah and I have been friends since year 7. We've had our ups and downs but for the best part of 15 years, we've been BFF's. She has had a rough trot. Her Mum died of cancer when we were 14, her Dad was struck by a bus when we were 22.... And I was by her side through it all. I...

    This is a story of mine

    which took place close to 6 years ago, but it had a massive impact on me. Making friends was always a big problem for me when growing up and I always had only one very close friend who I trusted completely. Upon entering primary school I had some difficulties in communicating...

    What’s the definition of a “Best Friend” ? Google says: “the one friend who is closest to you”. I guess that explains it...My best friend, she left at the end of last year. She and I had so much in common. Partly the reason we were so close it that her dad died earlier...

    Even best-friendships seem to come with

    expiration dates. I once had a best friend, who for this post, I'll simply refer to as She. She and I became friends back in 2004. We met at work, and while we didn't hit it off immediately, we discovered within a few months that we had quite a bit in common and enjoyed many of...

    I'd Have Never Thought It Would Be You Out Of Everyone.

    I met M at work there she was getting upset on the phone. So I asked her supervisor what her name was and I emailed her asking if she was ok. She said thanks for asking but it's a bit personal. A few months went by and we said hello a few times and got chatting. Anyways the...

    I met my former best friend at work, and we quickly became like brothers. I was amazed to find such a good friend as an adult - they're so few and far between! We were roommates one year, and shared many important and meaningful life experiences together - good and bad. We...

    I Was Abandoned

    I'd been friends with a girl for 6-7 years. The last few years she'd become truly my best friend. The one person I told very deep dark secret too. That person you tell stories to straight and don't subtly change in the telling to make yourself sound right. It was so nice to...

    I Have Been Abandoned By My Best Friends.

    The world isn't what I thought it was. I thought there was something like having true friends. I never believed I was surrounded by traitors and mindless treacherous people who were only flocking around me and using me for all they could get at that given time. I had been...

    What Happened?

    So, I was best friends with this girl for several years. We knew nearly everything about each other, and always jumped at the chance to partner up at school. Every class we had together, we would sit next to each other. Things were absolutely great.That is, until we got back from...

    I Don't Understand.

    One of my best friends has just stopped talking to me for no apparent reason. We didn't grow apart. She just stopped talking to me and I gave up trying. We've only known each other for 3 years but, when we fist met we just clicked and were friends from that day forward. When I...

    Do Best Friends Really Exist?

    Over the years the concept of best friend has slowly become unknown to me. One of the closest people to me, i thought would always be there for me not matter what. I have grown to notice that actions do speak louder than words and people just may say things because it seems right...

    The person that was going to be my life long

    best friend slowly began to severely dislike me. I'd known him for 13 years, knew all the family ect. I was in love with him and it was obvious to everyone BUT him. When he moved 6 hours away I moved with him. We did everything together, knew things about one another that no one...

    Faded Away

    Ok so my best friend joined my school in 8th grade and we were connected from the first day we met (we'll call her Katie). Katie and I had all the same classes (so I saw her everyday), we both played soccer, and we both liked the same TV shows (just a few things we had in common...

    Am I Not Important Anymore, Or Did I Chase You Away?

    We were best friends for so long. Like brothers. Is it because you have your husband now, and you don't need me anymore? Or is it because of my mental illness that you moved away? You were there through the worst, so why did you leave when I was starting to get better? It doesn't...

    This Is What Happened

    In September 2006 I became good friends with a coworker.  We spent lots of time together after work and on weekends, would go to the bar or park together or just watch movies and hang out at each other's houses.  I've never had a friend who I felt like I could share so...
