Turning a Friend Into a Best Friend


Lucky are those who get real best friends that stay with them forever and try to keep up the sincerity level to their fullest. There are also many who wish for a best friend with whom they can share times of sadness and happiness. However, it is not always possible to get a best friend that can be there with you forever. What we need to realize is the fact that a best friend cannot be made by a particular formula in fact such friends are just a matter of luck. Also, most of us are blinded by the media influence specially those Hollywood movies that have a special way of portraying best friends. This influence increases our expectation levels from our friends and even if we have a friend around who is willing to lend his shoulder for you to cry on we ignore them. The mere reason for this ignorance is that we aspire to have friends like they show in the movies.

It is important to realize what a best friend is and how can you make one. Here, we are not discussing a formula of making someone your best friend but we are discussing the factors that contribute to such bonds. Even the concept of getting the formula to create a best friend can have a negative impact as we wont be fully committed to friends instead we would be depending on the ‘formula’ to get a best friend similar to our favorite novel or TV show.

The first and most important factor that contributes towards great friendship is the factor of similarities. You can never create a best friend out of a person who doesn’t share the same views as you do or who doesn’t love the way you are. In fact, the phenomena of best friends occur between people who are very much alike and do share the same interests.

Second to similarities is the comfort level. If you do have a best you probably would notice how comfortable he or she is with you and that is what contributes to the longevity of your friendship. Two people cannot be best friends to each other until they are comfortable together. This comfort level further creates enjoyable moments. You cannot be totally open to a person who is not comfortable with and when you are open you cannot enjoy.

Thirdly, it is also important to enjoy each others company. If a particular friend enjoys certain habits you do he would spend more time with you. Also, you will be more comfortable with him because you know he likes whatever you do. Of course when both of you enjoy what you do you will have fun together and would crave for spending more time together.

Lastly, trust is the core of all friendships. If you have a friend you cannot trust then you can never make a best friend out of him. At times, there are people you love to be with but somehow you are unable to trust. This particular feeling keeps you away from them and hence your friendship suffers.
