In every phase of life, we will keep making friends.
We will always have our home friends (those we grew up with), our school friends (primary, JHS and SHS), our college friends (we separated them from the school friends to emphasize their importance in our lives) and of course our work friends.
In spite of all the friends that we keep making there will be one thing remains the same: Nothing can ever truly replace that one person who truly holds you down – and there’s certainly no gender-based criteria that person has to meet.
Having a girl as your best friend is a fantastic thing to happen to any guy. They are super fun and caring, they understand you better, and you get the best dating advice ever but having a girl best friend can be a real pain in the ass sometimes. Those who’ve had girls as their best buds will relate to these 5 situations.
1. Other girls assume you’re taken
Having a female bestie is a tricky one. Since you guys are almost always together, other girls just kind of assume that you’re together and will not shoot their shot with you.
2. All potential girlfriends will be scrutinized
She’s definitely going to judge each potential girlfriend to determine if she’s good enough for you and the process is going to be a gruelling one but you can’t take it personally since she’s just doing it for your own good.
3. Your guy friends are always hitting on her
Since you’ve made it clear that you two aren’t dating, now your guy friends keep hitting you up so you link them but based on what she has told you about them, you know very well that she won’t even blink in their direction.
4. She gets you in trouble
If your bestie is a hot-headed person, you understand where we are coming from. If she picks a fight, you have to douse the fire. Shield her when in a crowd, get the drinks in the club, do everything you’d otherwise do in a relationship – and without actually being in one! You don’t mind doing all those things because she is your best friend after all!
5. You start sharing clothes
Oh, and we are using the word “sharing” loosely since she will most likely not bring the clothes back and you can’t even worry her for it cuz that one too will be a whole different case altogether.
