How do you choose your best friend?

How do you choose your best friend?

Try to maintain your neutrality. Tell them how much you admire them both and why. "I genuinely like both of you and don't want to pick just one as my best buddy," say you. You may be precise and express what you enjoy about them, while also attempting to bring out what they like about each other. Maybe you can help them become better friends by pointing out similarities and differences between them.

If they want to be chosen, then let them pick you first. If you tend to be choosy about who becomes your best friend, then you should try to find more than one so you have more options. It's not fair for only one person to be allowed to choose their best friend so if you want to be considered, then you'll have to work hard to win over more than one person.

You might want to ask them what it is that makes them special to them. The answer to this will help you understand why they're a good choice for your best friend. For example, if they love animals, but you don't, then you shouldn't select them as your best friend since you wouldn't be able to share the same interest with them.

Also consider their personality. Are they easy to get along with? This isn't always the case since some people can be difficult to communicate with, but overall, they should make being around them enjoyable.

Ultimately, you should select your best friend because you want to.

What should I do if someone asks me to be their best friend?

If they put pressure on you to pick a "best buddy," try to maintain a neutral posture. It's not fair of them to attempt to make you choose a best buddy, and you don't have to simply because they say so. Then ask them which one they would like you to be.

You can also tell them that you are not looking for friends but instead want to become more acquainted before deciding what role you will play in their lives.

If they still insist upon your picking a best buddy, then do your best to stay neutral in the relationship. If they feel rejected or ignored, they may decide to stop confiding in you entirely. So always make sure that you aren't coming off as being too eager to join their team.

In conclusion, don't feel obligated to pick a best buddy just because they ask you to. And even if you were to select one, it wouldn't matter unless they want you to be their friend.

How do you build a relationship with your best friend?

Construct trust between the two of you. If you and your best friend can't trust each other, your friendship will suffer as a result. Spend time truly listening to your buddy, and communicate with them in an open and honest manner about your views and feelings.

Spend time together. Whether it's going out for coffee or taking a trip somewhere, make an effort to get together at least once a week. This doesn't mean that you have to go so far as to call each other every night before bed or anything like that - just be sure to set aside some time every week where you interact with each other.

Give generously. Helping others makes us feel good about ourselves and our relationships, and this will naturally flow over into giving back to your best friend. If they want something of value from you, such as advice on how to improve their life or help with an issue they are facing, then they should be willing to give something in return. For example, if they ask you for advice on how to change their job, show your support by helping them look for a new one.

Listen without judgment. Everyone has issues they would like to hide from the world, but being able to trust your best friend with these secrets gives them confidence that you will always have their back no matter what problems come their way.

How do I get closer to my best friend again?

Here are some ideas for bonding with a friend, any friend, so you can move closer to calling each other besties.

  1. Share the bad things, as well as the good.
  2. Figure out what you have in common.
  3. Really listen to them when they talk.
  4. Don’t compare your new friend to older friends.

Do you have to be best friends with your partner’s friends?

You may enjoy the same band, a particular sports team, or simply drinks at the same tavern. You are not need to be best friends with them. However, if you can identify just one thing in common, it may go a long way. One of the cornerstones to a good partnership is effective communication. If you cannot communicate your needs and desires with your partner then it is time for a change.

It is not necessary to be best friends with your partner's friends but it does help if you can find at least one thing in common. Communication is key to any relationship, whether it is with someone you're dating or an old friend. If you cannot talk about what makes you happy then how can you expect him/her to know you well enough to make you both happy?

Not all friendships are created equal. Not every partner should try to get along with everyone they know. That is called "playing politics" and will never lead to happiness. Choose your partners wisely! If you have different values then there is no use in getting together with them anyway. Find people who think the way you do so that you can push each other to be better people.

Of course, you will want to have fun with your partner's friends; after all, they are important people in his/her life. But don't let this distract you from your goal of finding one thing in common. Without common interests there is no point in staying together!
