How do you say ´one of my friends, a friend of mine´? Maybe

 

                           arkadaşımın/arkadaşlarımın biri

                           arkadaşımdan/arkadaşlarımdan biri ?

 

But what about

 

                            bir arkadaşım ?

Good. Sağ ol, AlphaF.

 

I don´t know why I feel so strange about using bir with a possessive marked word.

arkadaşım......refers to a specific friend, like "the friend"

bir arkadaşım ........refers to a friend among many other similar friends
