Yes! I don't have one particular best friend, but there's a group of like 6 of us who have been & remain best friends since 1st grade. They are more like brothers than friends honestly. I'm 28 now

Yes. I don't care if this sounds corny, but it's my mother. We are extremely close and she is without a doubt my best friend!!!!

My only childhood friend died. We were friends from two years old living next door to each other. I have a couple of friends of long duration: two for 40 plus years and several for 40 years.

That is sad loosing a friend. I don't know what the time limit is but after a while they stop being friends and become family. I am glad you have other long term friends to turn to!

most of my best friends moved away or went to different schools. My husband and I met when we were 15/16 It has only been 9 years.

No, most of mine have either died or got so screwed up with drugs and alcohol that I haven't seen or heard from them in years. I consider myself lucky having two going on 12 years.

How can you be someone's best friend but not be yours in return?

10/21/13 8:53 pm

I've had that happen a lot. They would feel a certain way about me, but I wouldn't feel the same.

So you are looking at different criteria? We all have a list of qualities that we want to fill in a person. Is there any one certain thing you can put your finger on?

MissN The Experiment
10/22/13 8:51 am

Well, if we had lots in common, we would enjoy our time with each other. I guess they just enjoyed it a little more than I did.

I see. Do you think your standards are set too high or they just were not the quality of people you were looking for?

MissN The Experiment
10/22/13 5:41 pm

I haven't really set out to look for a particular quality of person. I just see it as sharing similar interests.

Not like that, my buddy and I are 2k miles away. I've never had time to make or be friends for real with anyone. It sounds great. I will help anyone but when it comes to myself I will fixitlater.

I did have a best friend. But then he decided that his fraternity and girlfriend are more important than keeping in touch with an old friend. Oh well. Nothing lasts forever, especially friendship.

Yep. I've known him for 22 years and I'm 42 so that's most. :-)
I have another friend that I met when I was 10, he was 13 or so. We lost touch for a long time but we're back in contact now. He's the best friend I could have other than my husband.

My entire life. He and I have known each other since before we can even remember, my brother and his oldest brother were scouts together and also really close, and we kids were sort of raised together because our moms were best friends.

His first semester away at USC was literally the longest time we'd ever been apart since, like, ever. I went to the airport with his dad to pick him up with one other really close friend.
