Who is your "bestie"?
Haylen_WebMD_Staff posted:
When times are tough, you have good news to share or you just want to "yak" with someone who knows you best, who gets the call?

I rarely talk on the phone - text, email, facebook to make plans, share news, etc. with most of my friends. But there is one friend that I talk to on the phone multiple times a day and have for over 15 years. We share every detail of our day and I always feel happier/less "mommy anxiety" when I get off the phone. She's married, works full time and has two kids, just like I do so maybe that's why we mesh so well. And we fight too but then we laugh about it a few hours later.

Do you have a "bestie"? Or more than one? Is it a family member?

My bestie passed away from breast cancer 3 years ago. She was older than me. She had kids a few years younger than me. We met through work. She was like a "mom" to me as well as a friend. We talked every day for a few hours. Since her passing my SO has taken that spot. Life has gotten so crazy busy that I honestly just don't have time right now. Yes it sucks when I want to complain about him but it has also helped us become stronger. We now talk about everything and I mean everything. He is good about giving me a reality check when I need it. He also tells me I over communicate but really we just have different communication styles.

I'm so sorry to hear that! (((hugs))) That must have been a horrible time for you

It's really great SO moved into that slot and your relationship strengthened. I can't imagine my husband wanting to discuss the everyday details and hear the complaints that I share with my bestie but maybe I should talk to him more. We are ships passing in the night these days!

My bestie was my DH But now honestly it is my Mom. Through the tradegies (losing my Dad 11 yrs ago and my DH almost 7 yrs ago we truly have become best friends.

I have lots of besties. LOL.

Top would be my SO and my mom. Then my friend that I have known all of my life. 2 girls from college days that have been there for me through every up and down. And another BFF who I went to highschool with and became BFF in college. So total 6 LOL. The 4 girls, I cherish and love just like sisters. My SO because he is my everything and is there on every level. And of course my mom who I talk to several times a week and always offers the best advice.
