Can we talk about best friend/girlfriend/closest friend ???

I know we had a thread about it not long time ago but oh well..

I have a friend who I consider like my closest friend. Seeing us together you wouldnt believe we are friends. She is gorgeous, blonde, with gorgeous eyes and skin..(think Princess Diana) and she has a heart of gold. Me, not so pretty but hey its my fault I let myself go. She is bristish and I'm french. When I'm feeling down, she always has a kind word to say, talk rubbish just to make me laugh, once I was really feeling down, she came with a dish so I didnt have to cook..In the worst of time she was there for me...

Do you have the chance to have a friend like that ?

I'm sorry I may sound cheesy to you, but I just needed to share !

Seeing you together we wouldn't believe you are friends? Why? You infer because of your varying appearances?! Sounds like you are experiencing a dire perceived imbalance to me!

Either that or you're approximately 9 years of age and not yet particularly confident in your changing looks and self awareness?

I don't have any friends like yours, I have many who I consider my equals though, as they do me smile

Monsterous, warthog - you are so nice but go on, on that post I sound a little bit like a twat ( I was a bit drunk !)..but I do not have a inferiority complex, I just love my friend...but yes Ecomouse was meannnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

DeathbySummerfruit, your friend sounds lovely.
I do have some really good friends, prob not a Best friend anymore, but people I know who would be there in a crisis and not judge me, yep.

Ecomouse hmm the Op is singing her friend's praises, her appearance is an aside, it is her kindness and nature of their friendship she is commenting on.

Thanks lizzy, I was going to pull out this thread, just may leave it ! If I was better at expressing myself in english, she probably wouldnt have said that ! But thank you all the same to you !

My friend is a lovely caring person and the reason I'm writing about is that she suffered a miscarriage a couple of days ago and I'm feeling so sad on her behalf

DBSF (et al), by your own admission you were drunk and 'sound(ed) a little bit like a twat'. I wasn't 'meannnnnnnnn' it was direct, concerned that you were not praisin yourself up equally and had your buddy on a pedestal!

Glad to hear your friendship isn't as one sided as your OP indicated smile

No ecomouse, no worries, it's not one sided, I was just emotional last night and tipsy (drunk is maybe too strong word)...what I have meant by its hard to believe we are friends, its because we are really complete opposite, her the glam one and me the so not glam one smile but we always have a laugh, she has a great sense of humour and doenst take herself seriously, that is what I like best about her !!!
