The advice and encouragement that you used to get from a really smart “grownup” is now the advice you’re getting from your very best friends.
1. She doesn’t make time for you
I think we’ve all been guilty of this at some point ladies, locking a guy up in the place of no return: The Friend Zone. We all have that one guy who we swear up and down is “just our friend” and hey for some guys in our lives, they don’t mind the friend zone. But for the nice guy who is secretly (or not so secretly) crushing on you, it’s hell.
Let me explain.
The idea of that all-encompassing group of friends is about romanticized as Prince Charming himself. But that’s not how it usually works.
3. Sangria-induced promises are tougher to keep.
According to Aristotle, there are three types of friendship: those based on utility, those based on pleasure, and those based on virtue. All three types may exist within a single friendship, but Aristotle believed the best type of friendship is the one that encourages virtue (or goodness) in both parties
As you get a grip on adulthood, or at least as you try to, you will realize more and more, the importance of making good friends.
7. You have inside jokes between you and your friend’s parents that not even your friend is privy to.
With these steps in mind, we can strengthen our relationships and our trust in other people. And that ability is irreplaceable.
