I’ve always considered the luckiest guys to be the ones who have a girlfriend they also consider to be their best friend. Girlfriends come and go, after all, but best friends are forever. If a guy is that close with his girlfriend to consider their relationship more than just romantic and sexual, then he is truly lucky. Forming a friendship with the one you love and care for is special and absolutely necessary for a long-lasting relationship. Fortunately, I can consider myself lucky.
My girlfriend and I have a relationship just like that. She is my best friend, and I am her best friend. While some guys would actually consider this a negative thing, I believe forming such a strong friendship with your girlfriend is a great thing. While friendship is necessary in a healthy relationship, having the ability to call your girlfriend your best friend is something special.
She is truly that. We spend all our time together. She’s really the only person I ever hang out with, the person I tell all my secrets to, and the only person I enjoy being around. While I have other friends, I just don’t feel the need to hang out with them when I have the one and only person I’ll ever need in life by my side already. She makes me smile, she makes me laugh, she makes me happy. She makes me love life, and she makes me feel my life worthwhile. She is my girlfriend, my lover, but most importantly, my best friend, and I couldn’t ask for anything better.
We are as close as a couple can possibly be, in my opinion, but it often makes me question our normality. It seems like we are like no other couple I’ve ever met. Guys have a girlfriend that they see every so often. Maybe he’ll see her in school, but afterwards he hangs out with all his other friends, and doesn’t spend much time with his girlfriend. I see it all the time, and it really makes the question the definition of a romantic relationship.
While a romantic relationship is one between a boyfriend and girlfriend, to leave it just at that is nonsense. I guess that’s why I constantly see couples breaking up after a mere week or two of dating. They don’t have that same “oomph” in their relationship that my girlfriend and I have in ours. We started out as friends first. Really, classmates. We talked every so often, but not much. Throughout the year, we grew much closer, to the point where we could call ourselves best friends before we even started dating.
On top of our friendship, though, we had feelings for each other – we did for three months before we started dating. And once we finally took that plunge and started a romantic relationship, I’ve had the happiest four months of my entire life. She makes my world – she is my life – and she gives me everything I could ever ask for. I’ve never had more fun with anybody else in my entire life. And, I ask – isn’t that what a relationship is all about?
I know my girlfriend and I are meant for each other. We will someday get married, have children, and lead wonderful lives together. I wouldn’t have it any other way. If that’s how you feel about your girlfriend, if you feel that your girlfriend is indeed your best friend, then know that your relationship is truly special. To have your girlfriend be your best friend is the greatest feeling in the world, and I’m lucky to be able to know what that feeling is like.
