Slightly similar situation. I have a friend who is a bit notorious for picking the wrong guy and every time she broke up and was single again, the evil side of me would smile selfishly. But then I'd see where being alone put her emotionally and I'd rethink that initial thought. Her happiness outweighs the selfishness and possessiveness that flares up when it comes to my close friends. I have to remind myself that when she gets into a relationship, I'm not losing her...temporarily forgotten, maybe, but not tossed aside. Every relationship is a bumpy ride and when things get tough, who do they turn to? A friend. So from that perspective, you've got that market cornered.

This is true with me. Although I sometimes regret that I've never married, being the "rock" that people turn to when they need a friendship that has never been diluted is an aspect of myself I take pride in. My close friendships have included teenagers to people in their 60s. Just last night a friend called me to say he was destitute from health problems and can't get health insurance due to a long history of illness. He had no one else to turn to, having run out of other options. I loaned him some money (not a lot as my own resources are limited) and offered a place for him to live if he needs it.

Some great responses here and I thank you all/ It's right that nothing much has changed in terms of my friendships and I have woken this morning with a lot healthier outlook
