Just thought it'd be a good topic.

Truth be told, my best friend was basically the school bully. We were pretty much the worst of enemies back in middle school. I never expected him to be nice to me, but one day he just asked if I'd like to be friends. He kinda had a life changing experience after he was almost struck by lightning. Now we have semi-weekly overnights.

Just proves the old saying, you can't truly understand a person unless you've been their enemy first. Though there are other exceptions to that rule, it applies in this case.

Well, I have two, both who haved moved away since, but we're still best friends. (We email and call each other when we can.)

When I moved to Ohio, the teacher assigned two girls to be my helpers and show me around. They were friends with another girl, Mel. We were all best friends for awhile, and I ended up growing closer to Mel than all the rest because we weren't too different. We were both quieter and more serious than the other two girls. She lives on the other side of the US now, but we still talk quite frequently. I realized a few weeks ago that it's been about five years since we've seen each other face to face. In any case, I trust her more than anyone else, and she knows me pretty well. (Better than everyone else at least.)

The second one I met in PSR (Parish School of Religion, aka Sunday School). We're very different people - she's loud and outgoing and crazy - but somehow we ended up becoming friends. I'm not quite sure how that happened, actually. :) She lives pretty far away too, although not nearly as far as Mel, and we see each other once in awhile. Mostly we email.

Both of my friends are part of my website, so we all talk about that periodically too. :D I like them both very much.

Our friendship was practically "forced". When I was ten and Sarah was eleven, we both took Tae Kwon Do classes together. And we were also both in 4-H (unexpectedly), she rode my schoolbus for four years, we were in a lot of the same classes together and put next to each other (due to alphabetical order), we had a lot in common, and yeah. Basically, there was no way to avoid each other! lol We're even thinking about going to the same college! I no longer go to the same school as her, but she's still only about six miles away and we talk on the phone everyday, so it's all good.

Gym class in 7th grade. We had to get partners, and we were the only two who didn't have any friends in that class. You meet a lot of interesting people in gym class....

I have only two RL friends and we met at a GSA meeting.
We are now social activists incognito.
