There are many different degrees of friendship. There’s the oh she’s really cool and we say “Hi!” when we see each other, so I can tell people that she is my friend. Then there’s the ‘we get really fucked up and talk about how we want to be best friends.’ Don’t deny it, we all have “friend crushes,” you know people who you see and just like really want to be their friend. There’s also the we have classes together, talk about schoolwork and ask about our weekends friend. Don’t forget about your old roommate- you will always be “friends” because of that. These are all artificial friendships that are necessary to life- but don’t have any substance.
You all know you have some of these
What is this substance that I am looking for? I don’t mean to say that you need to have hundreds of pseudo-lez-b-honest relationships, but even if someone isn’t your BFFAEAEAE, you still need friends that you can talk to, share your stories with, complain to, and make fun of people with. These people are your FRIENDS and not your BEST FRIEND. You’re supposed to have like only a few best friends, if not only one. A best friend is someone special. Someone that you aren’t embarrassed to tell anything to and someone that can always be honest with you. There is no need to hide your most embarrassing stories from your best friends because a best friend doesn’t judge. I know there are all of those corny sayings like “A good friend will bail you out of jail…. but a BEST FRIEND will be in the cell with you,” but really it is true. And if for some reason your partner in crime isn’t there with you… she’ll make you laugh as she bails you out.
There term best friend is sacred because it means so much. That is why I cannot stand when people claim to have 50 bffs. Like no, you may have been close to her in the past, but you are not best friends. If you use the term best friend lightly then you don’t really know how to be a best friend and you probably don’t have a true best friend.
Winnie doesn’t get it…
There is no shame is knowing that you do not have a best friend. You probably have a really amazing group of friends. One day, when you have a best friend, whether it is your fiancee, co worker, sister, in law, or gym buddy- you will know it and understand why all of your other friends were different.
Lez b honest BFFz
Ew, I’m not sure why I am ~~deep~~ af in this post. Guess somethings in life aren’t jokes. HA, just kidding. The purpose of a real best friend is to blow dry your armpits when you get bad pit stains. (It actually works).
BFF tip #1- Test your so-called BFF. If she will pick you up in the morning after you shack, publicly harass a dbag that screwed you over, and make various groups of other girls hate her on your behalf.. then she’s a BFF. If not, she can go fuck herself. Not really- she can still be a friend, but you just need to make sure that you are skinnier than her.
