We talk a lot about “besties” and “BFFs,” but the truth is, lots of
girls don’t have one or two or (dare we say) three girls or guys—equal opportunity
besties here!—super close confidantes they would tell anything to. You know,
the kinds of best friends you see in the movies that know each other from
diapers to wheelchairs and love each other like sisters. A lot of times, these
close friends come and go in our lives. And sometimes, lots of girls just have
to go without.
And you know what? That’s just fine.
You might… have a bunch of good friends—just not a best friend
You might… tell your mom or dad or godmother or aunt or sister
everything that’s important to you
You might… spill your secrets to a diary
You might… tell one friend about one aspect of your life, and another
friend about something else
You might… have been burned by a former confidante
You might… have grown apart from an old pal—and that’s sad, but normal
You might… not feel like you need a special someone to poor your heart
You might… be happier floating between different social circles rather than
sticking with a few close chicas
You might… dish to your cat, Fluffernutter
And you know what? All of that’s fine. And all of that might change.
And that’s fine, too.
Do you have a best friend (or
two or three)? Do you not? Tell us about your bestie status in the comments.
