We women are complicated beings…yes we are, only ONE individual cannot comprehend our lives, which is why we have friendS…some fake, some real…some close and some best. As I grow older…my friends get lesser, no its not a sad thing it’s a good thing, because as time passes I know the one’s who’ll stick with me and the one’s who’d wither away…I have a special list of best friends, they know who they are and most importantly I know who they are and the fact that they’ll stick by my side not like a sticky note but like super glue (:
The Impulsive One
They are the ones who DO…not always with a Lenovo laptop (no offence). They are the one’s who take an action before even thinking, the one’s who’s do ANYTHING under the sun for you to stop crying, or to make you laugh. They don’t believe in sitting down and analyzing any situation, they like to jump to a conclusion…they’re the one’s I go to when I need a solution or a judgment…FAST. Impulsive decisions do turn out to be memorable, mostly for the good and at times for the bad…but never regretful. When you cry they are ready to bring the heavens down, they would plan your birthday and your gifts, ‘NO’ is something they don’t understand nor do they want to, all they understand is the hug that we give each other 500 times a day. They’re the most fun people to hang out with and the ones who would stick with you for life!
The Cynical Critic
Yes there are times when you just want to hear the truth about yourself, the truth about your decision or maybe the truth about others, No s/he doesn’t really bitch…but is good to bitch with. They find fault with everything, at times when you feel funny about something going wrong, this friend helps find out exactly what, when, where, how and who. When the little green monster creeps into you, you know exactly who to go to and bitch about a situation, a person, or a thing. They are the one’s who don’t care much about your sentiments…but care more for friend in you who needed to know the truth…no matter how bitter it is. You often want to shake the friend and say “You are rude and cold and cynical and too honest for my liking” But you don’t because beneath all the mean-ness is a friend who would look at your teary eyes when you are upset and just ask “coffee?”
The Guy Friend
No matter how much we hate men in general, we always have that one guy friend who we turn to when we need a ‘man’s opinion’. It’s always better to get a truthful insight from a guy friend than prospect boyfriend. This friend wouldn’t mind you bitching, cribbing, pms-ing, bitching, gossiping….bitching anddddd gossiping (Hahaha at times if you’re lucky, he’l return the favor). He may or may not have a crush on you but wont ever reveal it in fear of losing the most precious thing in his life…you (Which means initial hitting on will stop and he enters what men call the ‘friend zone’). Yes at times he can be “THE ONE” because the only person you hang out with apart from your girlfrieds becomes him…and gradually nobody gives a damn about your ‘single statuses’ and well now that the guy is in your comfort zone he will soon turn out to be your ‘Raj’ ❤ The guy friend is always good to have around you, yes now if you’re committed this guy friend takes a backseat in your life…but that dreaded night when your ‘perfect man’ (who obviously isn’t the same anymore) walks out on you at 3 in the morning…a call and a few tears later, The Guy Friend is next to you, on the sofa holding a tissue box and a box of your favourite chocolates or ice cream.
The One Far Away
They say distances make the heart grow fonder….I would know, never happened to me in a relationship but a friend who I barely knew for about 2 years…remains in my heart till date! Like they say some people just click! This friend is always an email away…you know like a pen friend only you know him or her very well J This friend is someone you may not meet ever but as and when you talk you make plans as to when you might meet…the moments spent with this friend are never forgotten as they are so close to yourself! Ive always liked to be in touch with a best friend so far away because I know someday somehow somewhere when I see his or her face…I will spend hours in a coffee shop discussing every intimate detail about my life, For me I have never hidden anything from this friend because she never judges me for one and secondly because she understands everything…there is no need to explain ANYTHING!
The Family Friend
You know from when you looked like a tiny monkey…there was another monkey who would be your partner in almost everything…dance, dinners etc. The one you’ve literally grown up with, familys have met, they’ve had a drink…now that wev grown up wev had a drink. The advantage I had is having this person as a classmate, which is why the family friend and I bonded even more, of course most misunderstandings happen here…and so does a lot of pretending because families mustn’t know of the fit we throw, but slowly and gradually we grow out of that too and end up knowing a person who you can tolerate without pretending anymore, all you need to do is open up and spread the love and it comes right back at you…maybe a bitch to the world (the reason for our bond is that we are almost alike at this) but towards each other undying love and admiration, we know the most embarrassing secrets about the other…well atleast I do lol which makes our bond stronger, the family friend will always be there no matter what and is here to stay!
The All In One
You know the feeling when you have that one best friend who fits into all the categories mentioned above? Yes, fortunately I am one of those individuals who have found the ‘The All Rounder’ in my life. S/he is with you 24/7 either on the phone or physically or over chats and emails…all the time and the one you never get bored of listening to…the one you can sit for 10 hours straight and just talk to about ‘life’. The one who you call when you’ve made the biggest mistake ever…just for them to tell you…its okay it wasn’t your fault, I’m with you! The friend who your parents could adopt, the friend who doesn’t need to knock on your door before entering, that friend who has read your diary time and again and wants to burn it because even her life story is in it, the one who smiles at the world but cries in your arms, the one who would travel any distance just to be with you, the one who will build my house lol andddd the one you have never fought with and never will because you can never fight with someone who is sculpted and designed by the Gods for you to love and treasure for the rest of your life.
