15 Reasons Your Best Friend Is More Important Than Your Boyfriend

  • 0

1. Your best friend has seen you at your worst and they still love you. They have no need to see you looking pretty or together all the time. You could show up in curlers with the biggest pimple ever and they’d still accept you.

2. Your best friend has probably been around longer than your boyfriend. They are reliable, loyal and entrenched in your life.

3. You don’t necessarily have more fun with your best friend but it’s a different kind of fun. It feels more relaxed and honest.

4. You don’t have to impress your best friend. You can be yourself.

5. Your best friend will drop everything and come rescue you and you’d do the same for them.

6. Your best friend will understand you and not judge you. You talk to them and feel totally understood for once in this big, bad world.

7. Your best friend has probably known you when you were a grungy, gross middle schooler or when you puked all over yourself freshman year. They’ve known you through every phase of your life.

8. You’ve always been sure about your best friend, but you sometimes doubt if your boyfriend is really “the one.”

9. You never fight with your best friend the way you fight with your boyfriend.

10. Your best friend is there for you after every break up and through every shitty ex. They will put you back together when you’re hurt.

11. You know if things get tough you and your best friend can run off to Mexico and go on the run.

12. There’s nothing sexual going on so you can cuddle up and watch TV together for hours and there’s no pressure to do anything but that.

13. Your best friend has probably done more for you in life, in terms of favors and life experience, than your boyfriend has. You should show them more appreciation.

14. Your best friend will never let you down, forget an anniversary or break a date.

15. And if your boyfriend is also your best friend? Or if these apply to both? YOU HAVE WON THE LOTTERY OF LIFE! CONGRATS! TC Mark

      […] Perhaps you have a guy as your best friend and unluckily (and quite luckily too)  he is not your boyfriend. Your boyfriend may sometime show his care towards you much more than your best friend does. But let me give you some reasons why best friend must be given priorities in your life, more than your mere boyfriend : 1. Your best friend needs not be impressed. You can be what you are with him. At least, you need not to look pretty each time you meet him. 2. You can talk about your boyfriend as much as you want when you are with your best friend but the reverse isn’t that easier. Your boyfriend may feel unsafe if you talk about your friend too much. 3. You don’t need to worry about ‘what if he felt bad?’ for your best friend each time you do some joke or fun. Your best friend shall not scold you for laughing aloud in parks. 4. Your best friend shall be with you after your break-up if you had one unfortunately, only to take you back to your normal life. 5. Your best friend shall always remain what he is, as it perhaps takes a lot of time to consider someone as a best friend. You might have got your boyfriend in a few sights and perhaps not for ever!
