17 Reasons Why They’re Your Best Friend

17 Reasons Why They’re Your Best Friend

You’re the avo to my toast!

By Penelope Pelecas | 8th February 2017

Whether you’re polar opposites or two peas in a pod, finding your best friend is a great moment in life. Here are some of the reasons we love our best friends so much.

1. They’re your personal therapist

You guys could spend hours on the phone or at dinner listening to each other’s problems and giving your (sometimes sucky) advice.

2. Time and distance never matter

You could go months without catching up in person but your friendship never changes. You can always pick up right where you left off.

3. They let you vent

No matter how big or how small your issue, they’ll listen. Even if it’s just that there’s no cheese on your burger.

4. Their parents are your parents

You love them like your own, and they always want to see you succeed.

5. They’ve seen you at your worst

There’s no pressure to dress up for them if you’re not in the mood – you feel comfortable slumming it in your pyjamas with them all day and catching up on your favourite shows.

6. You can sit in comfortable silence

There’s nothing awkward about it. You can just do your own thing while you’re together and enjoy their company.

7. They let you talk about the SAME guy again and again

They’re a true superstar for this.

8. You’re a better person with them

You’re happier and lighter when you’re around them. And when you’re feeling down, they know exactly what to say.

9. They make everything fun

Even the most boring events are 100 per cent more fun with them.

10. They’re totally loyal

There’s no one more loyal then you’re best friend. If someone wrongs you, they’ll hate that person on principle. You want them to keep something a secret? They’ll take it to their grave.

11. They are honest with you

Whether it’s trouble in boy world or an opinion on an outfit, your best friend will tell it like it is.

12. They let you know when they’re thinking of you

Even if it’s just by tagging you in another meme.

13. You’re each other’s biggest fans

They are always there cheering you on from the sidelines!

14. They make you laugh

You have your own inside jokes and you usually end up with tears of laughter when you’re with them.

15. They have photos and videos that could destroy you

You send them the most horrific photos you can take just to make them laugh, and they do the same.

16. You’ve been through EVERYTHING together

When it comes to new loves, heartbreaks, failures and successes, you’re always there for each other.

17. You couldn’t picture life without them

They know everything about you and they still love you. And you wouldn’t have it any other way.
