the love you have for a best friend




thank you to T for the lovely email + images...

Dear LeLove,

Let me just start off by saying I absolutely adore your blog and look forward to new posts and updates when I'm sitting at my desk at work with nothing to do. ( and luckily its one of the sites I actually have access to.)

I know a lot of the posts are dealing with boyfriend/girlfriend romantic love and relationships. As much as I enjoy reading the cute, sad, touching, amazing stories about this type of love, I think an extremely special form of love has been left out.

The love I am referring to is the love you have for a best friend. It’s unique and so important to have. It’s more than just affection for someone; it’s a deep underlying connection. The comfort of knowing you can tell them everything, and not have worry about being judged. The first person you tell when something exciting happens, or when something scary happens. The person you turn to when you need to vent. The person you can laugh at because they will just laugh back at you. The person you need to tell things to so your brain doesn’t explode. The person who can make you feel better when you’re having a tough day, the one you turn to for advice. . The person you can have full conversations with by merely exchanging glances. And maybe most importantly, the one you tell all your secrets to, especially boy secrets.

Someone once told me they thought it was creepy how my best friends and I said “I love you” to each other often. I told them: I think when you love someone; you can’t help but sound at least a little creepy. Love is love. No matter if it’s for your Mom, your cat, a boy, or your best friend. And when you are lucky enough to have people to love, and be loved, you need to let them know how thankful you are for that, and how much you love them back...

- T.

  1. oh! i just looved this post.
    I know what it´s like to have a best friend, i have had my share of them. But the one I often consider my best friend nowadays is leaving the country for three months and I don´t know what I will do without him. He is the one person that I KNOW that I will have a good time with, no matter what we do. We have the most unrational internal jokes, watch the same shows, listen to the same music and I can truly vent all my boy-troubles and questions with him, and the other way around. When I´m feeling depressed it takes him no time at all to get me lauging. I love him so much, that I don´t know what i´m going to do 3 months with him on the other side of the world.

  2. I'm glad this was posted. People think it's weird when I tell my best friend I love her. Society is so collectively stunted.

  3. I completely agree! Me and my best friend are going to get married if we're 45 year old cat ladies. Hahah I tell her I love her all the time.

  5. I am extremely lucky to have a romantic love as well as a best friend love. :) Even more so, they get along! *shocker* I really liked the first picture in the post. Keep posting!

  6. I agree with you. No matter how much we love our boyfie, we just can't live without bestie. Having someone we can tell everything without being judge is a precious feeling. We can laugh at each other but still no offense taken. I tell my bestie I love her like every day but I saw most bestie don't. That just sad. Btw, really nice post :)

  7. I think love is the same for whoever or whatever you have it for, you just show it in different ways. I think that people think that the love you have for your partner is different when it isnt, it's just the one relationship you feel comfortable expressing yourself sexually through. Other than that, it is dependance and trust no different than your love for your friend, your mom or dad, or yourself.

  8. Honestly i follow this blog almost every day and a post hasn't yet touched me as much as this. We have a notion in our society that only romantic love can make us happy and whole, but i think every normal person cannot be complete without a best friend, someone who understands you so much better than any other person in the world and has been there through all the highs and lows. For me the saying that boys come and go but your best friend is there to stay remains the best piece of advise i've ever gotten. So grateful :D

  19. I have a friend who tells me he loves me all the time and it doesn't feel weird. There are different kinds of love, but the one thing a love for your mum, your guy and your bff have in common is that they are all necessary for you to be happy and complete. Love is grand.

  20. I miss my best friend. She lives on another continent. And doesn't have access to the internet very often, hence when she does there are at least four emails waiting for her from me with the latest developments, thoughts, gossip and things only best friends tell each other. She is a true 'free spirit', and so I don't know when I will see her in the flesh again. But I know we have a bond/love that can't be broken, and so when we do it shall be like nay more than a minute has passed.

  30. I loved this post! Congrats for the great bestfriend you surely have.
    My bestfriend is one of the most important persons in my life, she is the only one that fully knows me, the only one who has always been there, with no judgements just a supporting shoulder. I love her so much. She's the family I was able to choose. Unreplaceable!

    We have a blog with thoughts, ideas, photos, memories, etc... A lot of posts are in Portuguese but we'll try to write more often in English further on.

  34. This rings so true to my heart - my bestie and I are celebrating our two year 'friendshipversary' at the start of October, and although we've only been friends two years I know I couldn't function without him. He's the first person I turn to if something happens, if I'm happy, if I'm sad, if something great or if something terrible happens. He's the one constant in my life - and I in his. Boy troubles come and go but our friendship is so stable that I can't imagine life without him. I love my bestie and we tell each other every day.

  40. Never feel bad for telling your best friend 'I love you'. My best friend and I used to do it all the time and people thought we were strange or must be dating. She was killed in a car accident two years ago and I'm so glad that I told her I loved her every day.

  46. The love of a best friend is something very important that if someone doesn't have it they need to get it. You are always sad without the love of friends especially a best friend. Telling a best friend you love them is like saying hello to someone else. It's a whole new world with best friends. And it's the type you don't understand till you have a best friend to call your own.
