My boyfriend is my best friend.
We used to work, for the same company, in Ireland.
We met, at work.

I met my best friend in kindergarten. I've known her most of my life! People often mistake us for sisters, although I think it's because we have many of the same mannerisms and expressions. I'm godmother to her son, too. The best gift ever!

One winter, on a freezing cold railway station, randomly, at about 3.45am

(and actually, that's not far from being the story of my life. I met the girl who became my Fiancee in a similar-ish way, and not many months apart)

We were in the same class in school from when we were 12, but we didn't become best friends until we were about 15. Since then we have done just about everything together.

I was born, and he was born 11 months later. My nan is his mum, so he is my younger uncle.

So we've always been best friends since birth really. Bit boring i know :)

I can't choose which of the two is my best friend.

One I met, when I was 16 and we went to a concert (Brian May) with a mutual friend, that asked us both along, as he knew we liked Queen. Shortly after that we started a band, and we have been making music together for the next 10 years, and since a few months we are playing music agian, at a monthly jamsession in Arnhem.

My other best friend I met when she was living in the Netherlands for a volunteer job. We met a the radiostation were I am making programms, as she had some experience in making radio in the UK, we did a programm together for a while. In 10 days I will be visiting her in Madrid, where she lives at the moment.

I have two best friends - one I'm maried to and one that we just visited to celebrate his 60th birthday.

I met Donny when I started my first job after college and he was my lab partner. We both changed jobs within months of each other, ending up at a second company and being lab partners again. We have been best friends for 34 years. We have shared apartments and lived across the country from each other during that time, still the relationship has stayed the course. We've even had periods where we weren't speaking to each other (for various reasons), but we always have been able to "fix" it and I couldn't ask for a better friend.

I met Kris (beerman) through a boyfriend. They were friends until my boyfriend broke several confidences and decided to pursue Kris' girlfriend. Kris and I became friends during rocky periods in our own relationships and wondered why we were with our significant others. We were friends for 3 years before we started dating (dumped the ex's since they were busy messing around anyway) and the rest is history. We've now been together for 20 years and will be married for 17 come July. I can't imagine life without Kris and he is my soulmate personified. ;)

My best friend's dog bit my son in the ear and she came over to my house to beg me not to sue her! I didn't, of course, and we've been friends ever since!
