A girlfriend, partner in crime, almost like a sister from another mother, someone who understands me, someone who I can reach out and be with anytime, someone I hang out with all the time, someone who knows my deepest secret. Those are the usual things that someone can use to describe a best friend.
We meet different kinds of people, we spend a lot of time with people who we jive with. I remember when I was young, i make some ranking on who should be my Top 1 to Top 10 friends. Sooner, the group grew bigger. I met a lot of people. We lost in touch with some, I casually talk with some, and the others just left my life without any warning. As I grew older, I realized that having many friends is not essential. You just have to keep the ones who are willing and deserving to stay. I met mine when I was still in college. We didn’t talk that much and to be honest, we never had the chance to hang out like the usual college girls do. She has her own set of friends, I had mine. All I can remember at that time was she was rarely part of my social life. All of a sudden, we started to hang out. We drank one night with our common friends. That’s our usual thing. We’re like two drunken dads who never have enough alcohol. We noticed our similarities then next thing I know, we started to go out just the two of us. We have so much fun in each others company. We bitch about other people’s lives. We gossip everything under the sun, we share funny af stories even some innuendos. It’s like we were made for each other! I even remember some stranger who asked us if we were dating. That should’ve make it awkward but we just laughed it out. 😂 One night you’ll see me at her condo, next night she’ll spend the whole day at mine. We did a LOT of silly things together. I can’t even remember the exact details but I know we had a lot of fun that I could ever think of. Inspite of these, we are not the kind of friend who says sweet things to each other. Unfortunately, we curse, A LOT. We laugh at the simplest things. We never get tired of annoying each other. Thru social media, trash talking everywhere, shouting like idiots lol. Another thing is she’s so honest of what she feels. She’ll say it straight to my face if I smell bad,🙄😂 or I look stupid 🙄🙄😝 (she’s REALLY GOOD at INSULTING PEOPLE btw hahahhhahhaha). But that’s how I even loved her more. I only met few people who has the guts to shove the truth to your face and it’s uncanny that I never get annoyed or irritated with it.
If someone will ask me what is the real meaning of friendship, it’s not always the good times we shared. I believe a real friendship is having that “thing” that’ll keep you together, even if it gets rough, even the distance and different time zone separates us, even if we encounter different favorite people, I know I could always count on her. ❤️❤️❤️
