Where you can talk about your best friends in life. It can be your mom, dad, sister, other family member, or whatever. You got some internet BFFs? Sure! Tell us all about 'em. Got more than one best friend? Don't believe in best friends? Let me know!
"I have a habit of falling in love with souls who have yet to be at peace with their bodies, their minds, their weaknesses. I try to build them, to find the parts of them that are missing in me.
I end up with holes in my chest."
I consider a best friend someone I can be fully myself with. I rarely feel that way with anyone, but sometimes it is close.
I have this friend, we've been in the same class for 10 years but not up until last year had I considered him a close friend. Even if I can't talk about romantic issues with him without feeling awkward (I haven't even told him I'm gay, even though I know he is OK with that), I feel extremely comfortable with him. (To make it clear, I have zero attraction towards him, he is like my brother). Our main topics are videogames, internet articles, school, daily activities and general stuff; we have a lot in common. I can make the foolishest stuff with him with no restraint, and I know he feels the same.
I have another friend who is like the opposite of the aforementioned friend. With this girl, I can talk about my romantic issues no problem at all, and she with me. She is the only girl in my school I've told I'm gay so I feel good talking with her. But that's the only thing I can talk about with her, other than the fact we both like men there's few things in common between us. I still feel I can be myself with her, and we've laughed our asses off at the stupidest things (which seems to be a symptom of a good friendship).
My parents are close friends I guess. there are no other people I'm as close with as I am with them, but I don't feel fully myself when I'm with them (I guess that's normal, ain't it?). my sister is another very worthy mention. We have a special bond and I absolutely love her. I have a close/distant relationship with my bro. We are so distant we live 9909.1 KM apart
Sure thing, Mel! I used to think I had SO MANY BEST FRIENDS, but lessons learnt over time taught me that wasn't the case lol. It's come down to family and a few others, pretty much:
Brandon: My husband. My best friend forever. I can't write enough to ever describe how much I love him. Just... he's everything to me.
My Papa/Mama: Like most moody teenagers, I used to think them my enemies lol. But with time I've come to realise how wonderful they are. They're the most inspiring people in my life, and if I can love my future children withan ounce of the love and dedication my parents have shown me, I'mma be very happy.
Azzy/Boy (on ZU)/Theresa: My younger sister. She's been there for me all through my life, the little ****, and I love her with all my heart. She's five years younger than me, and that makes absolutely no difference with how we interact. I don't know if that means she's mature, or I'm immature lol. Does't matter. She's loyal, smart, hilarious and one of the most loving people I've ever met. I don't think I'll ever be as kind and as giving as she is.
Reedah: My childhood friend since I was five. We met because I found two shoelaces, offered her one, and she tried to take the one I wanted to keep. We had a fight. Over shoelaces. And then we became best friends have been for 20 years. Stupid story lol. But she is, honestly, one of the greatest women in my life. She's struggled with cancer, is a dedicated mother, and a loyal friend. She's the person I did a lot of the "stupid" teenage stuff with while growing up lol.
Jordan: He's, like, gay... loool. And that's the only reason I like him--every girl needs at least one homo guy friend who's super-hot and knows his fashion. Jay kay. Very few times do I meet people I connect with almost instantly. He's one of them. We think alike on a creative level, have a similar sense of humour, and he's helped me through a lot of rough spots. Got nothing but love and respect for this man.
Mike: It happened so fast, and next thing we know... he's pregnant. And also loving, caring, understanding, stubbourn, rude, abrupt and just... wonderful. Really wonderful. I'm glad I approached him randomly and started talking to him, even though he seemed apprehensive lol, because it's turned into something deformed and beautiful. In a hiedous way. But still beautiful lol <33.
Asia: I'mma meet you next week. I'LL TELL YOU THEN.
My cat, Shivaco: Mew.
Next person who posts. You are my best friend. 'Til tomorrow.

You ungrateful **** lol. My cat is right up there with GHANDI.
Cody: facebook scrabble game won't let me use the word "punz". I get regularly frustrated by its lack of recognition of words that I say are real, like ginses which is a lot of gins
Brenton - I have known him for 4 years. He and I always talk on the phone about music, guitar, video games, etc. He has the same sense of humor I do; we get each others' jokes. We always have friendly debates on which Zelda is better (I am an OoT fan, while he is an MM fan), and whenever we hang out, we play video games and do some jams on our guitars together. He is awesome!
Zach - I have known him for 10 years, and he lives across the street. We go to school together, and we hang out a lot. Whenever we hang out, we stay up all night playing Xbox with our other friends on Live, have the funniest conversations ever spawned but we can't even remember them the next day, among other things. He doesn't have the same exact tastes in music or video games, but there are some things in those categories we both like. He is also awesome.
I haven't had any friends on ZU. Sure, I get along with people, but I have never felt like there was a friend I had on ZU that I could talk to. So, if you want, would you be my friend? (:
The offer is on the table.
I'm with Liah in the 'i used to think i had all kinds of best friends' boat. Seriously. Thought I had best friend err' where. Turned out to be, over time, that is definitely not the case.
My older sister: Pretty much the only person I could feel comfortable calling at 3 AM in the morning when I need to cry to someone (and vice versa). I have a lot of siblings, but it's been this girl that's been through everything with me and survived. She's got the biggest heart and just loves her family dearly. I seriously don't know how I would have made it through my childhood without her. <3
Kaitlin: Been friends with her since grade ten. She's pretty much the only friend of mine where I feel like she'll actually stick up for me/has got my back, when/if someone ever talked **** about me. She's always delighted to see me after a few days out of the house. I'm totally comfortable around her. Lulzy times always to be had.
Pastor Dan: The pastor of my church and the only person on this planet who knows everything about me (lol no, i don't go to confessional). I opened up and spilled my heart out to this guy over the span of a year and I've been able to heal in ways that I didn't know were possible. He's given me amazing guidance in life; also not too mention how much he's given me.
FOR THE INTERNET SIDE OF THINGS
Martin, Puck: Some of the greatest guys I've ever had in my life. Helped me through some serious ****, and I can always count on them to make me feel like a million trillion bucks when I'm having a rough day. I'd like to marry them both, plz.
AND THAT GOSH DARN CALLIOPE JONES. Gwarsh.
She's a special lady from the internet! I guess it'd be too cheesy to say that I feel like I already met her...? Even though I didn't? lol. Anyways, she makes me heart happy, so that's great -- and hopefully she doesn't forget about me when she becomes a famous illustrator in the future. ;-;

I've been best friends with Chris since we were eight years old. Brought together by a common fondness of Crash Bandicoot (back when the games didn't suck), we immediately became "bros." Most of my childhood memories involve him somehow. There was the time we broke into the school storage shed when we were supposed to be in class... My first physical fight, he fought alongside me (the fight was broken up after about thirty seconds, but it was still a really good bonding exercise)... We graduated at almost the exact same time (because of our surnames, we were right next to each other in the school roll), then went out for steaks afterwards.
Strangely, we have radically different tastes in females, so I can't stand any of his girlfriends, and he's hated all of mine.
He's leaving to join the army next year... *sigh*
I'll miss you, buddy.
Destiny lays a unique path before each of us. We have no choice but to follow it. Where does your path lead you?
Fear can hold you prisoner. Hope can set you free.
Man's true nature is violence, and this world is Hell.
There's Erika. I liked her a lot about a year ago. We hung out a few times, **** happened, and now I'd say we're best friends. We know things about each other and can talk about anything with an open mind. She's also a huge fan of Jim Morrison, like me.
There's a group of friends I have. About six or so. I consider them all best friends. In fact, I'd even say they're family. For the most part they've all been a significant part of my life. Michael was the first person to get me to try Marijuana. David was there for the first time I nearly got arrested, and I hung out with him almost everyday afterschool of my Junior year. Tomie has made me rethink my Apatheist views and think about Christianity more. He's also the one who got me to start attending church, thus getting involved with church-related activities, and they've made me feel pretty damn good.
And of course, I have many memories with them. The Veteran whom we opened the window on after we'd hotboxed the truck. When we volunteered all day at the sand sculpture contest at the beach. Twice. Helping two very good friends of ours' move out of their ****ty house and into a decent house, in a better neighborhood. I know there's apparently some "you probably won't see your friends from high school ever again" bull**** that I keep hearing, but these guys are like family to me, and I don't see us getting out of touch.
As for the internet, there's Jordan. We've had many a conversation over the years. We recognized each other since like 2007, but never formally talked until last year. He shares similar views to me in many subjects, while having enough different views to allow us to argue every once in awhile. I know I can always count on him if there's ever anything I wish to discuss.
I kind of have two best friends, they are the two I really love hanging around with all the time.
But I guess I'd have to say I am closer to one more than the other. I am not really going to say names.
Anyway, I can get along with her all the time, we have amazing memories, we can talk to each other about anything, she is not the typical *****y girly girl, I can actually have good conversations with her.
We both think alike, we've known each other for sooo long, and I can actually trust her with everything.
She is not the type to talk about you behind your back, I can talk to her about anything, without any worry that its going to get around. I generally love herrr :')
I probably couldn't live with out her to be honest
My other best friend, we kind of have a trio/group haha, except we're not as close with him, since we have only really got to know him this year. But it is sooo funny with him, we have the best times out and about, he's not like all guys, he's actually really sweet and really fun to be around, and he's a guy I can have a proper conversation with where its not just about sex.
Absolutely love them both, and the best part there is no drama with these two.
On the internet, I don't really have any best friends, I've even lost contact with pretty much all my internet friends, it just doesn't work really, It's not the same without being able to hang out with them, because it's not really the real them.
I'm not talking about any of you stupid internet people beause YOURE NOT REAL.
Not to be totally cliche and gay but my wife, tnf/Amy is really my best friend. We just get along really well and its just awesome, you know? Dunno how to explain it.
But I guess that's the point of getting married?
My old buddies from back home in New Jersey are still my "best friends", though. They're all the guys I grew up with in middle school and went to highschool with and what not. Even though I live a time-zone away, and won't see them any more often than once every year for a few years, I keep in touch with them best I can.
Ive got some friends here in Dubuque, and Amy and I see them pretty often, but they're really not the same as my buddies from home. So, as far as I'm concerned, Amy's my "best" friend.
Real life is my buddy Jenny.
We met through mutual friends and formed a small coven of misfit people.
She's been my best friend, confidante and sister for some six years now.
She's so wonderfully..."her." I don't know quite how to put it other than she's one of those people that you really can't out a label on because she's so uniquely her, her humour, her mannerisms. I'll never ever find another person like her in my lifetime so I'm so blessed to have met her and known her. She welcomed me into her family when mine were giving me trouble, and I found a place with her, he sister and mother.
I can't say enough to do her justice.
On the internets -
Well, they also co-incide with real life.
Anna/Lioness: She's so insanely random and full of love, who can't stop but adore the Lioness?
She's been a wonderful influence in my life and everytime we meet in real life, there are always lulz. And bruises. We playfight. <3
It's fun, really.
I feel honoured to have such a fiercely loyal and caring person in my life, and am determined to one day visit and stay with her in Sweden for absolute definite!
Asia/Anime_Queen: Well, what can I say that the forums don't already know?
She is by far one of the single most caring, compassionate and kindhearted people to ever grace this damn planet.
Even a recurring element in her art and work in uniting people be it through cultures and whatnot. Everything about her just emanates such a feeling.
I can't describe how invaluable a person she is to the world and as a friend.
And I like how she also has a cheeky sense of humour and likes to swear, and how that shocks most people in real life that haven't met her before! xD
She is undoubtedly someone who has greatly influenced and made an impact on my life and a wonderful older sister.
Purely online, Scott absolutely without hesitation is one of my most beloved friends. He's always been a wonderful person to talk to, and incredibly funny - and I really wish to meet him soon this month!
And Captain Cornflake has always been a person a I value hugely and who has made an impact on my life. Absolute respect and admiration for this man.
With the above in mind, I have a lot of Online people I deem as close friends, so love to you all! <3
Erika, Zach, Courtney, Allison, Karli and Juliet make up my wee little circle of friends at college. We all met each other within a week of us moving in as freshman, and two years later we're still tight. Compared to the people I knew in high school, I am completely comfortable with myself around these guys. I can be the goofy dork I am, and they still love me. And all of them are each some of the most talented artists I have ever had the pleasure of knowing, they make my stuff look like it was drawn with my foot!
I've actually known Nick for over a year, but we've only been together since September. I can already consider him one of my closest friends, as well. We constantly lend each other things we think the other would enjoy. (I lent him Watchmen and my Scott Pilgrim series, he lent me Six Feet Under and Pikmin!) I normally have an extremely difficult time depending on people, but with him, I can depend on him. It's very refreshing :>
And of course there are some awesome internet people as well. I could write a novel about how awesome they all are.
BUT I GOTTA MENTION MELJAY. Like seriously, I feel like we are already bros to the end. We can give each other important advice for everyday life. She's been there when no one else has, which is totally radical.
Zach/Notsil and I are pretty cool friends. We do stuff together and hang out, sometimes we go out to dinner and eat together, then other times we get married to one another, y'know, whatever we feel like.
I love my dog, Zoey/Honky Magoo? She's adorable and she always makes me feel better when I'm down.
My best friend in the world is Keri; she is pretty funny. She's kinda like SD's friend, Jenny, up there. Keri is so uniquely herself, and so funny and odd and fearless. I really admire her spirit and who she is/what she's become. Keri is the kind of girl who is there for you no matter what, and whether or not she agrees with it. Yesterday I was in a weird mood about something completely unrelated to me and out of my control, and Keri came in and made it all better -- not by being a ****talker or anything, but just by being honest and truthful. I love that girl to bits.
(P.S: Mel, if you're reading this, she's trying to coincide visiting when you're here, lol! She "wants to meet an internet person")
My mom is pretty awesome. We like to just... bother each other. Zach has been on the phone with me when I'm with her, and it is usually just 30 minutes of straight laughter. I miss her a lot.
<3 ROB IS ALSO COOL HIS NAME IS ELEMENTARY ON HERE. HE SHOULD GET ON MORE OKAY I'M DONE
Also, I adore Saul/AzraelBlack on here
I pretty much trust him for everything in my life
INCLUDING MY HEART,
Holly/Gold's the best friend I have, hands down. Online or off. She's easily one of the nicest gals I've ever met. Plus, she puts up with my frequent drunkenness, all the *****y gossip I talk about, my bouts of depression, and me always forgetting the things she tells me. I forgot when we met (sorry!), I know it was only a few years ago. Even so, I can't imagine not talking to her.
ily girl, srsly <3
There's some other bros I've met on here that I'd rather like to keep talking to. Tach, Sailboat, Vaati, Pani, even that ***** Mike. You guys are my silver medals
As for IRL, I've got a circle of bros I'm constantly around. We're all good friends and all that but we argue way too often. They're still my buds and I love 'em though.
the IRC has made me a lot of friends that I don't know what I do without.
I love Vaati, Mike, Randy, and Suzie especially. Life sucks, and I'm more or less dependent on these guys. Great people I can always depend on. I dunno. I just honestly couldn't see myself not talking to them.
Ooh I'm glad I caught sight of this from the index or I wouldn't have seen it.
Normally I wouldn't bother but I feel that I have to show my appreciation for my closest friends, especially lately.
I really only have three people I can consider close friends. They're basically the only ones I can trust with my personal problems and the ones I talk to all the time.
(Sorry if this makes any of you guys uncomfortable but I can't resist! You deserve the recognition.)
As for ZUers:
It's been way over a year since I met her-- time flies. o_o
I can't thank her enough for, well, basically putting up with me for that long. Me being constantly negative, paranoid, and/or anxious, I've put her through a lot of dumb crap in the past, and I haven't forgiven myself for it, even if she did almost immediately every time. I've never met a kinder, less judgemental person in my life. I always feel like it's a waste of her time to be talking to someone like me, but she still does. And it means very much to me.
I don't go looking for friends. In person also but especially online, I just don't make casual friends, much less ones I trust so much. So it's really saying something that Holly is one of my closest friends. <3
EL (Eternal Legend)
I think in the last thread like this (that I posted in) I only mentioned Holly. But since then, I've met EL (probably THROUGH Holly). Same thing applies here-- as with Holly, EL is one of only two people online I talk to all the time. She is one of the people I feel most comfortable about sharing my problems with. She's given me fantastic support when I've been melancholy; talking to her always makes me feel better. Again, that I met EL mere months ago and she's become such a close and meaningful friend to me is really saying something. I couldn't ask for a more supportive friend! She sometimes worries about the same thing that I do about Holly (that it's a waste of my time to be talking to someone like her so much), but nothing could be further from the truth! <3
And my closest friend in person:
Wonocva (as he goes by his online alias)
I've known him for quite some time. We met in 7th grade, and neither of us remember fully how we met (he thinks he has an idea, but I haven't got the faintest clue). And to be honest, I think that's the mark of a great and natural friendship, when meeting somebody is so seamless you don't even remember how it happened. We've been huge pals ever since, and, indeed, he is perhaps the only person in the world with whom I can brainstorm so effectively about ideas for our work (cartoons and such projects). We hit it off so naturally that we can have fun with anything-- sitting around and talking for hours is as entertaining as anything else we could do. We've shared character ideas, different ideas for cartoons and comics and the like, various improvisational audio skits that are a blast to do, you name it. I don't think there has been a single other person in the world with whom I have clicked so naturally.
And while we spend most of our time laughing our asses off, we are also able to discuss personal issues as well, and have on many occasions. It helps that our opinions are often (though not always, but when does that ever happen) similar on certain things.
Knowing each other has, I think, made life a whole lot more fun. Love this guy.
Like I said, I really consider these three my closest friends, and the only ones I talk to basically all the time (online or off). They all mean very much to me and I count myself unbelievably lucky that I met them all! I feel like I don't need any other friends as long as I know them. I wouldn't change any of that for the world.
