    I was just thinking that it would be great to have someone in my life that I could say or talk to about anything. That's the one thing that's missing in my life. I just wondered if anyone else on here could use that too. Although this forum has really helped me. And I'm thankful for everyone's input.

    I feel the same way. I have few friends that I used to call or text before depending on the topic, but they are busy lately with kids or husbands, boyfriends. I don't have those so I have a lot of "me" time. It's nice to have this forum and express myself every now and then.

    I have one. It's kind of an interesting arrangement since he's also the guy I like and that's not reciprocated, but I'd trust him with my life and I don't think there's anything I'd refuse to talk to him about. I don't really have many friends period though, at least not that I talk to on a regular basis.

    I have one friend for that, yes.

    It's all I need though. I don't really like opening up.

    I have one a guy who always support me, he is very open and has a good communication. He seems love me very much but I don't, so we are only friend. I wish I have a boyfriend with great communication.

    I am like that with my friends. I am 53 years old, have really close friends my age, in their 40's, 30's, and one who is only 27. Not sure why this is. I am not afraid to show my vulnerability, and open up when I feel comfortable. My friends are straight, but I respect their boundaries. Many hug me without feeling threatened, and a couple always tell me they love me before they leave or hang up. I think if you want someone to talk to about anything, you have to be the one to open up. It is hard, but very rewarding. I kept to myself through high school and into my early 20's. I met someone who was straight, and we became very close. He was not afraid to hug or show any kind of affection. This was in the 80"s when you didn't do that. Just take a chance.

    I have a few friends whom I update about life from time to time. :slight_smile: You can message me privately though if you need someone to talk to! Not sure if it's possible here. Haha.

    I don't have too many friends.. I do have an online friend.. Who I can talk too about basically anything. It's funny.. We have such different personalities.. But we fit together so well..
    But, as far as face to face people that I can talk to about anything.. I don't have anyone..

    I have a good friend at work but she grew up very sheltered. There are large chunks of me that I won't share with her because she doesn't understand it. I usually just keep things to myself, unfortunately. Feel free to message me if you want someone to chat with.

    I have one friend who knows everything, even stuff my wife doesn't. And it is nice to have someone who I can be completely open with. I wish he lived closer so we could talk in person.

    Yes but only a few. It takes me a while to open up to people.
