2. The difference between your best guy friend and all other guys is that your best friend and you are each other’s default dates, and it goes without saying.

3. The difference between your best guy friend and all other guys is that everybody already thinks you and your best friend are dating, and tease you both mercilessly for it.

4. The difference between your best guy friend and all other guys is that you can fight with your best friend, but still not be afraid that you could lose him. Because you know that your friendship is sturdier than your mood swings, and your tantrums, and both your potty mouths combined.

5. The difference between your best guy friend and all other guys is that with your best friend, you are unafraid to make plans waaaaay in advance. Because you don’t just want him there in your future, you already know that he will be there. And that’s not something you’re willing to let time or distance ever change.

6. The difference between your best guy friend and all other guys is that everyone thinks your best friend is in love with you. Because he has got to be – after all he’s done and how much he cares? But the thing is: he’s not in love with you, he loves you. There’s a difference, and only you have to understand.

7. The difference between your best guy friend and all other guys is that you actually bother coming up with 8 new differences between your best guy friend and all other guys, just to express how much you truly appreciate him. Because you’re especially into showy gestures and shameless displays of affection, and texting him to tell him just wouldn’t have met your standards.

8. The difference between your best guy friend and all other guys is that you will still show up to your best friend’s birthday party when you’re borderline crippled from menstrual cramps, have to get up at 6 the next morning, and your ex is sitting two seats away at the dinner table. 

Because you know you can’t be there for everyone you care about no matter what, at any time, or at any cost – but you’re sure as hell going to be there for him. 

Happy 19th birthday, my friend. Love you. TC mark
