How To Be Your Woman’s Best Friend
Although wanted from all relationships, it’s not easy to be your woman’s best friend. Most relationships have some element of secrecy, whether it’s something embarrassing, nonchalantly not mentioned, or something well… bad. The truth is you can’t talk to your girlfriend the same way you do friends, because that point of no judgment is never truly there with your significant other. There are always deal breakers, or something that you can say to alter their view of you. My solution to that? Be up front, and come to an understanding with your girl that you are not friends. This might seem counterintuitive, but knowing the boundaries within a friendship allows you to operate more freely and joyously within the relationship. Learn what she fears, when she needs comfort, when not to say something that would annoy her or set her off in anger and when the times of importance are. Going beyond the boundaries for the sake of truth is not always your best option.
Friendship with your girlfriend is like learning to play the piano. First, you learn the rules. Then, when you’ve mastered it, forget the rules and play from your heart.
