Let’s be honest: There is no such thing as ‘Just Friends’, in fact, the people who you choose to be your confidants and spend your time with are very important people.
They are the ones who you trust, who you share your victories and failures with and they are the ones who you fully expect to have your back at all times and its all mutual.
There is an inner scale of friendship, that we all adhere to whether we admit to it or not and it runs from acquaintances, friends, good friends, close friends, to best friends, which we use to establish the level of connectivity, and vulnerability we display around each respective friend label.
(Am I wrong? Didn’t think so)
You know how awesome your friends are, the decisions you both make to ensure your relationships grow happily, and the level of deep trust that you are consistently nurturing ( especially your BFF’s) so is it any surprise that these people who you have chosen to be in your inner sanctum highlight the standards to which you must hold your romantic partner?
Nope, that makes sense!
Afterall the people you have bestowed the honour of ‘good friends’ and ‘best friends’ are relationships that are near and dear to your heart always… so why wouldn’t the person you are having sex with and linking lives not have similar qualities and show signs of care?
There is absolutely no reason.
The following are the five ways in which your BFF’s are setting the standards for the kind of behaviours and beliefs your partner should embody!
