ive lost my fair share of really good friends, all people I would have done anything for and trusted with everything. But to me a friend is a person you love and a person that you would trust and do anything for even if theres a chance they may let you down. It's more than an alliance between two people, I feel like its a pact people share to pick each other up when they fall down and help them when they struggle and carry on hope when they're lost.

And I know those are all just altruistic pretty words, its just what I think. A more difficult question to me is when do we begin to call a stranger a friend?

Wow reading this has made me realized there are a lot of depressing people in this world lol. I have a great circle of "family" (what I call my friends) I'm very good at reading people from time and experience so my days of being back stabbed have ended years ago. I've found that I attract really good friends from the type of person I am. I'll do whatever I can for my fam without thought or expectation of reward. I don't ask for help from them because I know they have their own problems to sort out. But they are willing to listen to mine and I listen to theirs and that alone is help enough. I hope those of you that don't trust anyone are able to find a good friend to trust that sticks by you. There is nothing like having someone like that to make things in your life easier. I also find it humorous that most of the female posters have stories of betrayal. From my experience of watching my 4 sisters and their friends as I grew up I've come to the conclusion that most females cannot be trusted. It's just one of those things I guess. But there are a few good ones out there. You just have to know what to look out for. A good start is to take a good hard honest look at yourself and the person that you really are and not the person you perceive yourself to be. The friends you attract tend to be a pretty good reflection of yourself. I saw this in myself and made the necessary changes to the person who I am now. If I do say so myself I'm pretty awesome because I have some of the most awesome fam a person could have. My circumstances are an exception I easily can name over 10 people who I consider fam and vice verso. I have plenty of associates and acquaintances but they are the only one I consider my fam. It is true that good friends are hard to find yet find them you must if you plan on enjoying this roller coaster we call life. It's really no fun if you don't have someone to share the thrill with

You're just like me, I thought I was the only one.

Sounds harsh but I don't fully trust my friends, I'm not really an open person as everyone knows a bit of knowledge about me but no two groups of friends know the same info, like my school friends of whom I still keep in touch with don't know (or at least I never told them) that I like anime but my friends at college and uni know. Likewise my friends at school know more personal stuff which my other friends don't but no one knows lots about me.

As for who I go to when times are tough. Well times haven't been tough for me so I've never had to worry but I'd probably seek solace online, I'm extremely reclusive, If I could live like I am now without seeing another person I'd be happy tbh.

At this point I can barely distinguish between my friends and enemies. Most of my enemies used to be the former.
I only have two I can entrust with any kind of personal info… and they're online. I met a potential third candidate before winter break, but he's close to graduation, so there's this sinking feeling i have that he won't be interested in associating with stupid ol' me.

Incoming subjective downer post:

In my entire life, I've very gradually discovered that no-one is truly trustworthy. I've had "friends" ditch me when I was no longer useful to them, I've been to a lot of family gatherings and similar situations where nothing I said or did mattered, resulting in me coming off as an asshole whenever I spoke up and someone actually fucking listened. I've had several internet "relationships," that have all crashed and given me a very slight, but enlightening (for me, anyway) glimpse of what that could be like in real life. So I'll never gamble on it. I'm very disconnected from the world as a result of all of that plus a few other examples that I won't mention. So I never use any of that social media bullshit, and have a very bleak outlook on the whole picture.

I've lost a lot of faith that I will ever trust anyone, I don't believe in friendship, and I sure as fuck believe less that there's such thing as a "best friend" anymore. I've had a total of two and all I've found is that the ones who are closest will backstab the hardest. Nothing that ended in enmity, which is actually pretty fortunate when I think about it. Going from best friends to enemies is too fucked up to deal with when it never truly has to be that way in the end. However if they'd have tried to kill me, that'd be a different story, and I'd have to send them a note saying: "You really suck at this. Try again, fuckhole."

I'm not pointing any fingers at any of the representatives of the above examples. I've become a little too cynical, maybe even unapproachable at times, and have simply stopped caring about people in general. So I tend to nudge people away since I don't seem to be able to empathize as much as they'd like, and I know I sure as shit wouldn't (and didn't) enjoy being around anyone else who were the same. I'd rather have no friendship or companionship at all than have something that's fake, where I have to force myself to be what I'm not just to get the person to give a shit about me before the inevitable betrayal. The same doesn't apply to situations such as posting on forums, where it's all just general and people can say what they feel about this or that. I'm fine there--obviously enough or else I wouldn't be typing this--but I know (or should know by now) to stop when things start to get personal with a stranger.

I'm not so much of a downer that I don't have a sense of humour of course. It's just a little shitty when people don't get it. Self-deprecation is a considerable part of my humour, which I realize not a lot of people get or understand.

And so it goes... Hope this longwinded shit hasn't put anyone to sleep - unless you're an insomniac, in which case: much obliged.

Hmm... I need more coffee.
