    I am not an easy person to make a friend of,

    in fact friendship is not something I ever felt a great deal of need for. but there are very rare occasions when I connect with someone. I have the quote "When I give I give myself" as favourite quote on my profile page, it's been there from day one and it's there because that's...

    Meeting up with some old friends today.

    It's been years since I've seen them. Should be fun catching up over a few beers.

    Friends come and go. I always thought "maybe

    your friends, but never mine." But I was wrong, I've lost so many friends in the past year. But I've also gained new ones that are just as great as they were. It's just sad because I miss those old friends sometimes but we never talk anymore. So if you become my friend, which is...

    I'm not sure where to start with this but.

    I always ask my irl friends if they want to play video games or hell even just hang out. It never works. I'll ask over and over but they always make excuses. "My dad won't let friends come on weekdays." "I'm on punishment." So since I have a steam account I ask one of my good...

    I value the friend who

    for me finds time on his calendar, but I cherish the friend who for me does not consult his calendar.

    I have new friends! It has been a while

    since I could really say that and have it mean something important and have a strong emotional feeling attached to the thought. With the kids gone, it has become more important for both of us to have friends to share our lives with. We want to give our kids the space to evolve...

    Yeah I do value friendships.

    . But I don't think many of my real life friends see friendships the way I do. I'm the type of friend that's always there for you no matter what, I'm not two faced, I support you and just do my best to be the most awesomest friend ever. It just annoys me that some people I know...

    Friendship is NOT about supporting your friends

    even when you know they're wrong. Friendship is loving someone enough to tell them to stop being a ******* idiot before they ruin their lives.

    I am a friendly, nice

    and humble guy, that is looking for another friend that could relate to being gay. I am masculine acting, and have dated women in the past, so all my friends think I am straight. It's much easier they don't know I'm gay, for many reasons. It's more important to me that my...

    Sometimes you just click with a person on here.

    You start out telling them basic things about yourself. And after sharing these some what trivial facts you start to open up and let them have a glimpse into who you are. I have met some nice people and made some great friendships that have got myself and hopefully them through...

    Friends mean a lot to me.

    They save me from being me. They taught me how to care and love people. If wasn't for my friends, i probably be on streets hating humans. Any friends i have here i consider you real :) I'm here to help in anyway

    A Friend

    I am a conscious person who is serious about having a monogamous relationship. An honest person who you can count on in times of needs, someone to laugh with someone to cry with, to share your hopes and dreams in good times and bad times.Yourself
