40 Things To Look For In A Best Friend

Updated on March 18, 2013
Source

Friendship is something we all need. Weather we agree with it or not, we are always in need of a good friend. And to have a friend that we can call a best friend is an added bonus. So, how can we tell if our friend is our BFF (Best Friend Forever!), or just a casual friend? Here is a list that will help you out. Now go ahead and sort out your friends, and find that gem that's called BFF, (couldn't we find a better acronym then this, jeez!).

The First 5:
They know your deepest darkest secrets, and still they stand by you.
They stand in line with you at midnight to get that Xbox game.
They are always there with you on your yo-yo dieting and exercising.
They will try weird and exotic food with you even though they are afraid of it.
They don't care if your house is messy.

10:
They enter your house from the back door.
They give you advice from the heart.
They are there to wipe off your tears....
They know you snore.
They have a way of telling you off, from the heart.

15:

They spend more time with you then with their spouse.
They love to go shopping with you.
They will knock on your door in the middle of the night, when they need someone to talk to.
They will welcome you in the middle of the night when you need advice, or if you are sick.
They call your mom, mom.

20:
They tag along with you to your family reunions.
They don't mind sharing ice cream float with you.
They don't mind eating from your plate.
They always laugh at your jokes.
They defend you when you are not there.

25
They don't mind crashing on you sofa for the night.
They don't mind you crashing on their sofa for the night.
They always answer your calls.
They always reply to your emails.
They are always there for you!

30:

They wear that polka dotted dress with you even if it doesn't look good on a guy!
They go out with you to paint the town at night, just to make sure you get back home safe.
They cry on your wedding.
They drive across miles to be with you when you get a divorce.
They like all the songs you like.

35:
They love all the movies you love!
They love to go apple picking with you.
They can sit and eat bags and bags of potato chips and watch you play skyrim on Xbox, for hours.
They will go and sit at the hairdresser and flip through those useless magazines, while you get your hair cut.
They love to listen to your dreams.

40:
They want you to be there on all their joyous moments.
They want you to be there when they cry.
They want you to listen to them when they have nothing to say.
They want you to try their first dessert that they made.
They want you to hold their hand when they cross that bridge.

Friendship, Best Friends Forever, is a glorious Thing!!



FRIENDS? I Will "Always" Be There For You!!

      ...this is one awesome list but yet it is more than that because you take time to explain each reason why - and that is what makes this hub so much fun to read because it's also enlightening, sometimes eye opening and informative - sending you my warmest wishes on this holiday Monday in Canada known as Thanksgiving - lake erie time 11:56am

      That is so beautiful, Brenda! I actually have few best friends and one of them inspired me to write this..... What will the world be like without BFs, right? Lol

      Thanks for sharing your story and I do hope you guys get to sit on the porch in your ancient years :) Lovely to see you ....

      I love your list. In this life where people are inconsistent and unafraid to betray and abandon, I have been blessed with a precious friend. My beautiful Beth and I have been best friends for decades and plan to sit on the porch in rocking chairs when we are ancient. She fits everything on your list and more. She is the one person in my entire life that has never let me down. Thanks for inspiring me to call her.

      Hey Cogerson, I am glad you can relate to it! It's great to have your partner as your best friend, isn't it? My husband and I are quite different but we do compromise for each other. Isn't that what BF do!

      I love Bruce Willis and Julia Roberts! Too bad they didn't make a film together, lol.....

      Appreciate your stopping by! Thanks :)

      Excellent hub with 40 awesome things about a best friend. Luckily I am married to my best friend and she has about 39 of this 40 traits.....We do have different taste in movies.....but she is always willing to see the latest Bruce Willis movie with me....and I am always willing to see the latest Julia Roberts movie with her. I enjoyed reading your list and am happy that you have a best friend that does all of these things for you. Voted up and awesome.

      Terrye Toombs 5 years ago from Somewhere between Heaven and Hell without a road map.

      Yep, that is a good list of what makes a best friend. My best friends and I always did a "thong check" on each other before going out (to make sure our thongs weren't showing). :) I wouldn't trust that to anyone else! :) Loved it, LaT! :)
