My best friend knows who he is. All others need not apply. Likewise, I'm his best friend. Unfortunately, his life sucks nowadays. It's grand on paper, but there's some serious issues in his marriage. I hurt right alongside him.

My definition of a best friend is someone I can talk to directly, without having to use some sort of "mask", and the other way around. Someone where I can say something that may sound stupid, but something that does sort of make sense... something I'd be truly ashamed of telling even people I consider friends.

This goes beyond the usual "joining in a bar fight" thing. A person can buy bodyguards that will assist them in a fight, but they can't buy someone who they can talk to straight.

My best friend is someone who knows me, and can hear me, though not always understand everything I feel from personal experience. I can share anything with him/her and feel that my confidence is secure. He/she knows when to prod, knows when to lie low, knows when to back off a bit. My best friend can confide in me. And can trust me to hold his/her confidences as my own.

I have almost a sacred trust with a best friend. Ever since my husband died, I have only two long-time (25-yr+) best friends in the world, and one other in this same small group for nearly 15 years, stateside, and all three, especially the first two, are so far away....

What's your definition, Siu? <curious and interested Vega look>

Hopefully, I'm making some new friends on BF....

The person who walked in when everyone else walked out. I know, it's cliche. My best friend lives in Montana, and I live in California. We don't see each other much, but when we do it's like we never missed a beat. We've been friends through high school and college. We have this weird connection. Even though we don't see each other often, we have an uncanny ability to know just when the other needs a phone call. He's the only guy I'm not related to that I've said "I love you" to and meant it (no, not in a romantic way). I really think we're brothers from another mother.

A best friend is the one who accepts you for who you are, warts and all, and is always there for you, standing with you, good times or bad.

and what Stacey said.

a best friend lasts forever, remembers the offbeat important days in your life, & calls at all hours.

A best friend isn't the one you call when you are stuck in jail after a wild night of partying. A best friend would be sitting next to you.

I'll let the Insane Clown Posse sum up my feelings.

Let me ask you this about this life we live
And let me try to swerve some of this attention you give
To them distant ass relatives over in Hampton and
If they really miss you so much
Why don't they just call you then? (Mutha****a)
If you wanted blood, would you still have love?
Or infact does the blood make you think you have to love?
Look I probably love my family more then anybody here
But my homies are family too
Third cousins get outta here
Who was you with when you got tatoos?
Who was you tripping with when you did them mushrooms?
Who the **** threw up all over your car?
And then felt worse then you about that **** in the morning? (Friends ya'll)

Who loans ya money, homie?
Who owes ya cash?
Who taught you how to use the bong for the grass?
I don't know much but I gotta assume
When ya hit ya first neden, ya homies was in the room

We talking about HOMIES HOMIES
We are mutha****ing HOMIES HOMIES!!!
We are juggalo HOMIES HOMIES!!!
HOMIES HOMIES (Man that's my dogg)

Have you ever had a job that you truly dispise?
Like I dunno maybe dishwashing or ****ing flipping fries
Then you got this boss who thinks he's the don mega
Cause he the head manager (Cheap Smelly Fry Digger)
All you could vision is ya'll beating him down
Your homies standing on his back while you kicking his head around
But responsibility is there, I can't lie tho
I would a been plucked his ****ing eyeball out with a chicken bone
Crazy as **** I'll rip your peircings off
And now my homies are holding me back so I don't look soft

When you snuck the car out who did you get?
And when you got caught, who you blame that ****?
Hoping you relax while they scratch yo balls
Homies are talking about the hereos

We talking about HOMIES HOMIES
We're mutha****ing HOMIES HOMIES!!!
We are juggalo HOMIES HOMIES!!!
(yeah yeah yeah)HOMIES HOMIES (hey hey hey)
If ya don't like me ya can **** Off!!
If ya don't like me ya can **** Off!!


Me and my homies stay tight like a noose
And if you step to one of us you betta step to the whole crew
I never knew that I could depend
That I could have some friends that's down til the very end
Well that's my home boys, excuse me, my family
And when we conquer the world
We macking on the galaxy cause skys ain't limited
And we ain't finished
And if my homies gonna ride ya know I'm with it

Puff it and pass it and I give it to my homies ya'll
Hit it and quit it and then I give it to my homies ya'll
I got the world around my finger with my homies ya'll
And everything is obsilete unless I hear my homies call
We worldwide, were homies around the planet
Sticking together like zippers on Michael Jackson's 'Beat It' jacket
They got my back like a tat for that, I love ya'll
Hanging till we old and grey like grandpa

HOMIES HOMIES!!
We are mutha****ing HOMIES HOMIES!!!
We are juggalo HOMIES HOMIES!!!
HOMIES HOMIES!!
If ya don't like me ya can **** Off!!
If ya don't like me ya can **** Off!!
If ya don't like me ya can **** Off!!
If ya don't like me ya can **** Off!! **** Off!!! **** Off!!!

We talking about HOMIES HOMIES
We are mutha****in HOMIES HOMIES
We are juggalo HOMIES HOMIES
HOMIES HOMIES
If ya don't like me ya can **** Off!!
If ya don't like me ya can **** Off!!
If ya don't like me ya can **** Off!!
If ya don't like me ya can **** Off!! **** Off!!! **** Off!!!

Someone who accepts me for who I am no matter what. I have a few good friends on BF and a few in real life, I have no idea if any of them accept me for who I am. Some I can talk to more, and vibe with better, some I can tell things I can't to others. I guess a real friend in the end has your back. True friends have your back. I don't use the word best friend, I don't know what that means. Who do I like better?

Is always glad to see me.
Gets excited when I come home and runs to greet me.
Forgives me if I mess up.
Looks at me with a smile.
Wags their tails a lot.
