I met this girl, exactly a year ago. I had no high expectations of falling in love or us clicking instantly. I thought that was too fairy-talish, too perfect and thus too impossible. Yet, I gave it a go, met her and we started talking. A few meetings and before I knew it, she was my best friend more than she was anything. I loved her company and I couldn’t get enough of her. I had never felt this close to anyone in my life, it was utterly shocking to see my own self opening up to someone I had just started spending time with.
Soon, all my plans were starting to revolve around her. Whether it was an issue at the workplace or just something that was bothering me, she was my go to person and I was hers. That’s when we realised what partnership meant, what true love meant. True love indeed meant being the best of friends in life.
Life has never been this beautiful.
I believe, at times, we fantasise love as someone standing at our doorsteps with a dozen roses in their hands and promises on their lips, of bringing the whole world at our feet. Maybe love is not all about that. Maybe love is a lot more simpler like someone’s arm around you when you’ve had a bad day at work.
Or someone restocking your favorite flavor of ice cream, for whenever you might want it. Or simply when someone owns you and befriends, your flaws, your crazy streaks, your annoying little habits and your soul.
Love is more about friendship than anything else and here are a few things that will help you see that your partner is truly your best friend.
1. You can talk without even saying a word
This is when you both are in a situation and think the exact same thing at the exact same moment. This is when you give each other “the look”! Only true friends know this and if you are truly friends with your partner, you would know what I mean.
