    online, especially even a potential best friend, opening up & trusting people personally in my life has backfired :/ I don't know if I am writing this because I am lonely, a lot of the time I am but also the possibility of becoming close friends with someone intrigues me :) don...

    Look everyone, I know

    that you all want to have a best friend, which is great, but you can't just ask for one. you don't just ask someone to be your best friend. You find a best friend naturally and just meet them somehow and some way in life. If you haven't found them yet, you will, but you just...

    I'm a person who is quite the interesting kind.

    I laugh and make people laugh. I make people blush and smile like it's no tomorrow but the one thing I don't have are best friends....I know it's something that takes time and I know it's something that isn't easy to get. I just wish a girl could be my best friend or even a guy...

    Growing up as a military brat I moved around a

    lot. That experience made saying hello and goodbye easy for me. Later on I did 7 years in the Air Force. Well, now I have left the military life behind, married and settled down in my husband's home town. I have a great marriage but I miss having that one great girl friend...

    I am so complex that I have a lot of friends

    but no best friend. I want someone who doesn't only support me in my craziness, but also joins in. I want someone who could break through my barriers, someone who could shout at me because I'm being bad, someone who could put a smile on my face and someone I could call anytime...

    I just want a best friend.

    I don't care about distance. Someone to talk to all the time and laugh and cry with. A girl who listens to me just as much as I listen to her. Or a guy who doesn't just want sex.

    I lost my best friend

    because she doesn't accept that I'm bi. Yes I have more friends but my other best friend switched schools right before this happened. I just want someone that I can hang out with at lunch. Cuz I usually eat alone.

    that this feeling still lingers in me. I want a best friend, so much so, I now want a friend with benefits. I need someone that I can explore things with or just be able to talk to. In this world, I am so alone, I need someone. The reason I ask for a guy is because I am missing...

    I never had a real best friend.

    No one ever does know my deepest darkest secret. No one knows my smile is fake. I talk and hang out with myself because I have no one. I feel invincible, I feel forgotten.

    !!! A person who likes the same things as me. A person that I can trust. A person that will be there for me. A person that doesn't hit on me and just talk as friends.

    because I'm gay. I want a friend who is a girl who will keep my secrets and who is supportive of me and what I want to do with my life. Guys sometimes just don't get me and I think a girl can understand me more than a guy. So if your a girl or a guy who can put up with a 14 year...

    I have had many friendships end badly.

    Maybe I'm the problem. It's possible-- I am very stubborn.. But let me say this: I am not stubborn for the sole purpose of being stubborn. I stand up for what I think is right. My loyalty runs deep, and I do not put up with bullshit. It's simple :). Loyalty. People do not seem...

    All I want is someone to give a **** about me;

    to be a real friend who I can call upon for anything. Someone to meet up with and have endless things to talk about. Someone I can confide in. I should have that by now, but I haven't. I'm beginning to think that maybe I am the problem.

    I feel like I have absolutely no one to talk to.

    I don't know why I have social medias. Like everyone I know has 1,000 followers when I have 26. And on ep I post something no response. Like I want to talk to someone who feels my pain. I want a best friend.
