I really don't have this kind of experience in my childhood days even now to have an imaginary friend kind a weird experience to that.

An imaginary friend helps me to be more confident in doing things that I wanna achieve. It cheers me up at times especially during my time of solitude.

I did not experience having one of them and I did not wish to have one either. Sounds creepy to me.

When i was younger i never really had an imaginary friend, as i had a best friend really quickly! But i am sure a lot of people have had imaginary friends.

i can't remember that i have ever had any Imaginary Friend or not and i don't know much about it's existence so this topic is new to me

I had 4 little brothers by the time I was 8, with the last two being twins and their big brother only 13 months
older so it was more like triplets. The oldest of the boys did try to help a bit, I think he was my "gofer" as I lined up the other 3 in front of the couch for changing time(cloth diapers). And folding diapers, oh that seemed endless. Mom always says I was her right hand, for her to cook or clean she needed my help. I didn't have time for an imaginary friend. I just wanted to be alone, anywhere or any way I could. I might have briefly had an imaginary sister, not sure. But after the last 2 came out as more boys I told mom to hang it up, I didn't want a sister anymore.

Like you, I also didn't have an imaginary friend and being alone was enough for me. I used to play hero by myself, waheehee, knocking out the enemies with my bare hands.

I always kept pretty much to myself as a kid and was a little shy, so I guess maybe I'd be someone you'd expect to have an imaginary friend. I never did, though. I've heard about imaginary friends, of course, but I wonder how common they are. Maybe they're not as common as I think.

Yes same i only had one best friend but i also kept to myself and just did my work, so i never really had an imaginary friend.


I have a nephew who had this friend named Wally. It is an elemental with no defined figure. At first it was a little boy like my nephew but as months passed, it became a giant. That's all according to my nephew.

I was a only child till I was 10 years old and I had a friend named Judy She was so much fun to play with LOL Always played what I wanted to play , agreed with everything and always let me win at all the games we played She was the best imaginary friend ever And my 5 year old has several that she plays with Emma is one and the other is a adult she has made up His name is Uncle Farmer, he is awesome You should hear some of the tales she tells about where her and Uncle Farmer go while we are asleep

really do not think i have ever had an imaginary friend. i have an imagination but i dont remember having one of these. if i did i was very young but thats ok.

Yes same with me too i also do not think i had an imaginary friend either, i had a huge imagination though like you said.

I never had an imaginary friend, but I have quite an imagination. I did talk to my dolls and marbles though.

My imaginary friends were my toys, old and broken toys actually because I had no toys of my own except those given by my older brothers.

When I was a child I was a sad shy little thing and I am now 50 and not too shy and not little at all now but I remember my imaginary friend. His name was Jared Murphy. LOL funny to remember something like that after 40 years. Even my sister remembers me talking about "him"

I never had imaginary friends. I suppose I should have, especially since I love making up characters, but I don't remember any.

Yes same i don't remember if i did either, but if i did i probably would have just forgotten, it seems a bit strange to have imaginary friends and reflect back on then as you get older and you are not a kid anymore.

I never had an imaginary friend. I came to think that people with imaginary friends were actually seeing ghosts, has children could apparently see ghost more easily. What do y'all think about that idea?

No, people with imaginary friends are not seeing ghosts. They just have strong minds to create characters that they think are real.

Wow I had one when I was 8... her name was Nicole like my middle name. Ppl used to think I was crazy lol especially my mom. I think imaginary friends are an important part of childhood

Now may I ask - is that imaginary friend of your just imaginary or is real? My nephew had an imaginary friend that he said was real. There were instances that he was able to prove its existence.

I always wanted to have an imaginary friend but I couldn't do it because I knew it wasn't real. Which was the point, but I wanted it to be kind of real.

Yes same with me too i would want them to be really real otherwise there would be no point, i did not have any imaginary friends either.

My son had an imaginary friend that was a very important part of his life when he was younger. He was named Tommy and Tommy was the mischievous one while Paul was the good one.

Imaginery friends are everything u want in a real friend..... i don't really know the reason for that in particular ... but i think its because we believe that they understand us better and not criticise ...

Yes it's true you invent how you want your friends to be like, which is very different to real life friends nowadays.

I kind of think kids maybe make up imaginary friends either because they are really lonely or they want someone to blame the bad things they do on

In my little boy's situation, I really do believe that he had an imaginary friend was because he wanted to have someone beside himself to blame the bad things that he did on.

Yes, kids really make up imaginary friends based on what they see on tv and in books. But I think there are real imaginary friends of some kids, I mean real as in real.

I never had an imaginary friend I never got the concept that every child had/has an imaginary friend. humm...i personally never heard of anyone else having an imaginary friend.
