Don’t take your relationship with your best friend for granted. Being a best friend is not all about being the ideal shopping partner, or the best person to share dirty gossip about who’s with who. Sure, that’s just one of the fun things about being a friend, but there’s always more to being a good friend than being a source of entertainment. Be strategically great friend with our tips to be the best BFF that you can be!
Be Close to her Family
Friends are like family, in a way. And you can take to another level and show your pal that you really care with by getting to know her parents. Your best friend’s parents could even be considered as your second family if you take the time, so start planning some time to follow her back home. Furthermore, getting to know her roots and family can help you understand her more, leaving you with some insightful perspective whenever she’s in need of advice.
Listen to Her
We’ve all got our own stories to tell, and being women, we always want surprise our listeners as we dish! Well, your friend might be feeling the same too, especially when it’s something serious or something that’s really bugging her. Relax and keep the juicy details to yourself sometimes, and let her have the floor to let her heart out. Being a listener for a change will grant you both a better connection.
Take an Interest in Her Interests
While we’ll always have things in common, we’ll also have interests that we don’t share. Whether or not it’s your ‘thing’ or has the potential to ‘crank your style’, put your ego aside and show your bestie that you’ll support her no matter what. She’ll certainly appreciate the effort you’re putting into it.
Just Call Her
Remember when we were younger, we’d just call our friends two hours after school and spend hours on the phone for hours straight? Of course that’s almost impossible when you’re grown up with jobs and the other requirements of adulthood, but you can still make time maybe at night Figure out how her schedule works like, and spend some time for a quick chat or even catch-up for brunch!
