  • I have often thought so but as we have aged, i think that it would not be possible with that friend, i am getting more and more mature and she is mooching off people, and doesnt have a job, and she is just a user..
  • Yep... (and they wouldn't do any of that...)
  • Yep, because she'd never do that anyway :) And it sounds really irritatingly sugary, but I know she's going a part of my life, forever. I can tell.
  • Yeah, three of them.
  • Yes, and I love all my friends like that.
  • Well, I certainly wouldn't take those transgressions lightly. There would have to be some rebuilding of trust, of course! But yes, I am lucky to have a friend that I love unconditionally, and who loves me back unconditionally.
  • I am about to do something completely unprecedented on AB. I am simply going to answer by quoting another answer. Because it's so mutual, it defines what the shared heart of true friendship is all about. ""Well, I certainly wouldn't take those transgressions lightly. There would have to be some rebuilding of trust, of course! But yes, I am lucky to have a friend that I love unconditionally, and who loves me back unconditionally."" That IS the answer, I feel.
  • OH I PREFER THIS IS JUST AN MISTAKE YOU MADE IN LIFE OF NOT KNOWING THE PERSON FIRST BEFORE STARTING AN RELATIONSHIP AS A FRIEND OR GIRL/BOY FRIENDS.
  • Yes. I am also confident that he will never do any of these things to me. But, if he did he has earned enough respect from me that i will overlook it.
  • Yes. I have several like that. I'm blessed.
  • Yeah. There are some people that I've known a LONG time and sometimes stuff happens that people don't mean. People make mistakes.
  • I do have two friends that come to mind like this. One in particular, I've had brief rough spots with him in the past, but we always bounce back regardless of time, distance, mood, or situation. I'm going to be the Best Man at his wedding next summer, and I hope I do a good job of honoring our long friendship.
  • I have one.. She doesnt even talk to me though. We dont see each other.
  • No. Tonight on the way home I saw my "friend" in traffic and I could not get her attention. I cut my car in front of her, honked my horn and she was so zoned out on her "blue tooth" that Jesus could have appeared in a convertible next to her and she would have ignored him too.
  • Yes I have 2 friends like that.
  • Yes. Once I consider you a friend, you are pretty much always a friend. I will forgive just about anything if the person is willing to save the relationship. That's not to say that some rebuilding of the friendship won't be necessary, but it's something I am willing to do.
  • Well I thought I had a friend like that.. but I was so very very wrong. Dont trust yourself to think that because there always is a breaking point.
  • No, i dont put up with that what so ever. If they screw me over more than once...i'm over being friends with them...why put yourself through that?
  • No. For me the definition of 'friend' is inconsistent with actions like backstabbing, etc...
  • Yes, I have a friend who has foolishly gotten herself lost on drugs. After 28 years of friendship, her personality has changed, and not for the better. I tried to tell her about 3 or so years ago that our friendship was not going the way it used to but as far as I know, she still has not changed. I have not spoken to her in about a year. I still love her madly, but I am loving her from a distance.
  • Maybe I do, I haven't really given it much thought to be honest with you, but I don't trust that many people in my life, just a select few I really, really trust.
  • yes, as is the case, i do have one friend that has backstabbed me more than once and yet we're still friends...
  • yes and it breaks my heart
  • TT There is such a friend who has done some of those things to me. Not to say that I didn't deserve some of them but it hurts me to know they see me the way they do. As much as it hurts though I hope they know that I do not hate them I do not hold a grudge and wish them nothing but peace and happiness in their life and while I am not going to sit here and hold my breath, if one day they should decide they may have judged me a little too harshly and want to be my friend again I will gladly accept them back into my life and carry on as if we were always friends. Why because I love them even if they are too blind to see that.
  • yes i do in fact i got a handfull of em.
  • No ! That's not the person I would have for a "Friend." I have a friends list and I have a s#@t list. That person would definitely be on my s#@t list!
  • Hm...I don't really know how to approach this question...It's just so damn sad that you would even ask such a thing! No i would never consider them a friend and i would never settle for someone like that in my life. Come on! You must have some kind of standard for who you associate yourself with and who you feel deserves your friendship. Insult me? Backstab me? I don't care how far my love goes for them, obviously, they do not respect me or care enough about how they make me feel. A friend is someone you go to for advice, someone who knows you well, and someone who you trust. I would not trust someone who insulted me and backstabbed me. For anyone on here who actually settles for this, needs to understand what exactly a friend does and the way they are meant to treat you. If you are a great friend and are sweet, then let go of those kind of people in your life. And if you are like them, and you do insult them and backstab them as well, then i guess you guys are meant to be!
  • I thought I did. I tolerated a lot... I really did. I would have at least had contact with her today if she really understood what I was trying to tell her. I tried to express it many different ways. I really wished just one of those times, esp. the last time she would get it.
  • I'm not sure cause people can back stab you when you find out their in a different situation other than that i wouldn't mention their name as a friend or anything else.
  • yes i most certainly do. i love my friends a whole lot and i understand things can sometimes get a little screwed up but if it does .. it's nothing we can't straighten out :)
  • yes i love my best friend even though she ditched me for a dude but she came back and now things seem strained but i love her more than my family so i would do anythign in the world for her
  • I admire you....it is really difficult to do that. I just have an ending friendship. It really hurts...In my case, I had a friend who was flirting me almost 2 years. During those years, while I demonstrated close friendship signals, he only flirted with me....with a little friendship signals like acting evasive and curt. He gone and came many times. Over all, I loved him as a friend, but I realized he didn't love me as a friend. It was so so so painful... Now, I sense like being "used"....
  • Yes. I just learn to understand that that is the way they are.
  • yeah.. my boyfriend
  • I don't think a true friend would backstab you. That takes some amount of intent, it's generally done to cause hurt/harm. An insult, can be unintentional, could be said in a joking way. You love this friend a lot, could you imagine backstabbing him/her?
  • yes there are friends that we have this bond.. but sometimes it depend on what they did by the meaning of backstabing me.. because that something really seriously. because once a friends backstab me, i canttrust them never because i will always have it back of my head that she could backstab me again.. i wont be enemy with that person, but wouldnt consider best friends..
  • I think I do. There's been some rough times, but we have made it through so far. I think we will be friends forever.
  • No. The saying goes: "With "friends" like that, who needs enemies?"
  • yes, i have friends ive been friends with since i was 8. we still hang out a few times a week and do a lot of things together. over 20 years we have done some stupid things and ignorant things to each other. but when push came to shove we have been there for each other in times of need. and then i have some friends i wouldnt wouldnt talk to if i had something better to do.
  • Yes i do have a friend that i don't care what she does she hardly does anything badly.
  • yes, they must have a reason for waht they did. and if their are going through a rough time what kind of freind would you be to leave them?
