Boys are fun and boyfriends can be great, but they will never compare to your BFF, and here’s why:
Ladies, we have all been there. “I SWEAR I’M NOT CRAZY!” If you actually have the need to say this to your man, I’m sorry, but you might be a little crazy… HOWEVER, it doesn’t matter how crazy you’re being ranting to your best friend about your guy’s lab partner who just so happens to be a girl (how DARE she?!), your BFF will never tell you you’re crazy. If she’s a good friend, she will reassure you that there’s nothing to worry about (and maybe join you in plotting revenge)
Anyone who’s ever had a boyfriend or something remotely close to that (cuz relationships are apparently not a thing anymore) knows how awkward those first few hangout sessions can be. What should we do? Does he really wanna watch Netflix? Can we be seen in public together at this stage? BUT, you will never go through this with a BFF. No matter what is happening in your lives/ no matter how long y’all have known each other, there’s no awkward moments between you guys. There’s never a dull moment between you guys and you can have fun together even when you sit in silence, and that rocks.
Attempting to be modest with your eating habits around your new bae might be one of the hardest/worst things EVER. It’s hard to adjust to sharing a large pizza opposed to finishing one yourself… However, you’ll never have to do this with a BFF. Order a pizza for each of you and throw in some bread sticks. She’ll always share her late night snacks and bring you Starbs when you’re cramming for a huge test. You’ll always have someone to eat a (huge) meal with too!
I don’t know about you, but sometimes my lack of a filter gets me in trouble. This was especially an issue with past SO’s. I’d agree with them that maybe i should work on thinking before I speak, but I never have to do that with my bestie. She gets me. And I don’t have to filter any thoughts that run across my mind. I say what I want when I want and she responds with something just as sick and twisted and I love her for that.
I’m talking worst of the worst… not crying in your guy’s arms over a 10 minute argument you got in last week. I’m talking sobbing naked, lying on the shower floor because your world is crumbling around you. Having to hold your hair back and rub your back after a long night and she’s the only one who can seem to calm you down when you’re working yourself up so badly you can’t breathe. Where’s your BF at that moment? He’s “with the boys”, not by your side to comfort and care for you. Your best friend will be there for you through everything; no matter what life may throw your way. Guys are temporary and will never care for you or have your back like your BFF will.
Cherish these amazing friends you have in your life and don’t take them for granted. They would do just about anything to see you happy and will be there for you through all of the ups and the downs.
