FRIENDSHIP ~ 2 ~ Friendship I have been best friends with Deana for thirty five years. I would give up the father of my children before I would give up the her and I have. I can depend on her, tell her anything and she is always there for me. I trust my best friend. She knows more about me than anyone in my own family knows. I can tell her anything. If I am sad, she knows how to make me feel happier. If I need advice she gives it. My husband and I are in love. We get along but we lack the ability to communicate. My bond with my husband is our children and physical intimacy. I believe that women's relationships with their best friends and their romantic partners are different than men. What men expect from their male friends is usually different from what women expect from their female friends. Yet, both sexes' expectations lead to difficulties with friends. "A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down", by Immanuel Kant is one of my favorite friendship quotes. Women want to know everything about each other. They tell each other their personal feelings and discuss their sex lives about themselves and their partner.(Braithwaite & Kellas, 2006; Johnson, 1996; Metts, 2006; Oliker, 1989; Reisman, 1990; Walker, 2004). Just last week I was sick with a stomach virus. I felt bad and my best friends came over and brought me a cup of hot broth and cleaned my house and took care of my children for me. She always knows how to make me feel better and is always there.
