I believe there is an expression to call someone (a friend) to whom you complain about something, generally a relationship problem. Could someone point to such an idiom?

For some reason my favourite word for this is bosom buddy. Perhaps it can refer to someone to whom you pour all emotions you have kept buried in your bosom.
