They say that your best friend is someone who’s always there for you and knows every little secret in your life. But I have a close friend who’s always there for me no matter what, and yes, she’s just a “close friend.” Not a “best friend.”

She’s the friend that you can message at any time of the day and you’ll surely get a reply.

She’s the friend that will leave you a random message saying that you should make sure not to do anything too crazy and that she’s always there if you need anyone to talk to.

She’s the friend that will tell you to text her when you get home so she knows that you arrived safely.

She’s the friend that lets you gush about the guy you’re crushing on, but laughs at you because you two have never even spoken.

She’s the friend that reminds you that you can do anything as long as you have the guts to go for it.

She’s the friend that you can talk to about your dreams.

She’s the friend that will ask you to get matching tattoos.

She’s the friend that will call you when she’s drunk to ask you if you love her, and then will tell you that she’s still in love with her ex, but that she’s not stupid enough to go back to him.

She’s the friend that will laugh at you when you fall, but is also the first one to pick you up.

She’s the friend that will tell you that she’ll punch the air out of the boy who keeps on hurting you, but also tells you that you’re such a dork for falling head over heels for that loser.

She’s the friend that will tell you that it’s all going to be okay.

She’s the friend that curses a lot, but has a golden heart.

She’s the friend that never says she loves you, but shows it with every action.

She’s the friend that knows everything you’ve been through.

She’s the friend that knows your deepest, darkest secrets but never judges you.

She’s the friend that you can laugh with about dirty jokes.

She’s the friend that reminds you that you deserve so much better.

She’s the friend that tags you on relatable posts on Facebook to remind you of your worth.

She’s the friend that always says, “I got you,” and actually means it.

She’s the friend that tells you that you are strong and that she believes in you.

She’s the friend that is literally only one call away and down for anything.

She’s the friend that wishes you would’ve met each other a long time ago so she would’ve been able to defend you from the people who bullied you back then.

She’s the friend that reminds you to eat when you’re too busy to remember on your own.

She’s the friend that is usually quiet, but is talkative around you.

She’s the friend that tells you that true friendship can’t be measured by how long you’ve known each other.

She’s the friend that made you believe you can do anything.

So to my closest friend, I guess I can never really call you my “best friend,” because that would be an understatement for someone that I consider to be my “greatest friend.” TC mark
