Friendship Stories

Everyone has friendship stories; stories that define what makes each friendship so special or what makes a group of friends so fun to be around. We want to share as many stories about friendship as we possibly can on this site. Oh, sure, it will start out small, but in time, we'll have zillions of stories to share. Share yours. Just get in touch with us through the form below. If it works with the site, we'll publish it.

There are a few friendship stories that might not be suitable for our site, so that is why we ask you to query first. A couple of hints to make it easier to submit your story: no foul language is allowed at all and you have to be able to write well enough for a high school freshman to be able to understand what you’re talking about. Oh, and one other thing: Since the focus of this site is on helping friends make friends and keep friends, it's best to relate stories that follow along those lines. Make your story fun to read, ok?

So, having said all of that, how about a story to get you started?

Whitney's Story

There was a time when Whitney didn't have a lot of friends. She was a bit shy and reserved. She never really wanted to be popular, but she did want to have someone to share secrets and laughs with. All through high school, though, she just slipped in and out of "light" friendships where she didn't find a lot of comfort or companionship.

best friends forever

When it came time to go to college, Whitney was quite nervous. She was going to be rooming with someone she didn't know and living in a town 300 miles away from home. There wouldn't be a single person she knew in town. She had no idea how she was going to make friends in this new environment.

The first week of classes, something happened that changed Whitney's life forever. In her English Composition class, she was asked (as were all the students) to share a little about herself. She told everyone where she called home and all of the other ordinary details that students share in such situations. The final question for each student was always the same: "What is your goal for this class?" Now, most of the students said it was to get a good grade, pass the class or something similar, but for some reason, Whitney said something entirely different. She said that her goal was to make just one good friend.

While most of the students sat in silence, one student came to Whitney and held out his hand and introduced himself. He asked if she would be his friend. The whole room was silent – all eyes focused on the Whitney and the hand extended just in front of her. She smiled and stretched her hand out to take his and a friendship was formed. It was a friendship that lasted all through college. It was a friendship that turned into a romance. It was a friendship that brought two people together in marriage.

Whitney learned the power of asking for what she wanted, being honest and taking action.
