OTR, The Road Less Traveled, you know the first line is "Life is difficult", but he talks so much about the energy and "action" it takes to love someone and be truly friends.

Thanks,
Terry

Thanks, Terry, it was such a long time ago that I read "Road"--probably 25 years ago, but I believe I do remember it well enough to believe Peck had some really sound advice in that book. I may have to pick it up and re-read some of his advice.

I'd be interested in your view (that is any of the 104,000 members) of a good, solid friendship that is equal to or perhaps even exceeds a relationship with a sexual partner (married or not).

I've had several, both female and male, and consider these friendships the creme de la creme of a well-lived, well rounded (see well-rounded thread for more details) life.
Very rare these days.

Like you, I have very few friends who I love unconditionally and love me the same way in return. These are the kind of people who would stick by me through thick and thin...without pretense.
