Friendship, what is it? Well there are many levels of friendship. There are those you like and associate with on occasion but it doesn’t go past that, then there are those you may have lunch with once a week or so, maybe go party with on occassion, then there are those who would lie for you, cock block for you, even go to jail with you and say we gotta do that shit again.
There are very few people in most peoples lives that a person can call a true close friend. A friend so close that they would hold your hair while your vomiting from drinking to much or a friend who who would set you up with a couple of hot twin asians for a threesome, or even would go to jail with you and laugh the entire way.
Personally I can count on one hand the number of friends I can say that I felt I was close enough to that would do these things. Even then these types of friends are supposed to be someone who you can tell anything too. Your deepest darkest secrets too. Your problems, ask advice, etc. I honestly have ever only had two people I could do that with. But some have more than one. But I believe two or more friends like that are rare. Most people only have one person they can truly open their entire lives too. Is there anything wrong with that? Not necessarily.
They say you should be able to express these things with your significant other but sometimes it’s your significant other you need to talk about and you can’t always do that with them so you need another person as a sounding board to get things off your chest. Thats where that best friend comes in to play. Now the key to having this friend is being able to filter what is good advice and what is bad advice because if they are a true friend they are always going to side with you and their advice may not always be to your benifit. They may say, “Leave him you don’t have to put up with that” when the best advice would be “talk to him about what upset you and come to a comprimise”. Even though they may want the best for you they may not always have the best advice for you, but they can always make you feel better. So if you have that friend hold on to them if you can but filter their advice because not everything they say may be the best thing for you.
