BFF = Best Friends Forever
How to Make Friends

Friendship is a loose concept based on mutually beneficial interactions between two people. Two or more persons can achieve this status if they have good-natured interactions or even intimacies.  

A mutually beneficial relationship with another person is not just a luxury but a necessity for healthy psychological development.

The process of getting to know someone begins during childhood and continues on throughout old age.  If you want to get to know someone do like kids do, just run up to them and start talking.  


Research shows that children with play mates have a greater sense of well-being, better self-esteem and fewer social problems as adults than children without such experiences.  Yet there are still typical struggles that arise for children around buddy issues, such as trying to “fit in”, teasing and handling peer pressure.

Not all BFF (best friends forever) are created equally.  Some are secure and smooth sailing; while others are peppered with disagreement and conflict.  Buddies are an integral part of every individual’s life.  They help you grow as a person and allow you to see the world in a different way. 

Companions are important in our lives. They provide us with a sense of well-being and a sense of belonging.  Nurture them and you will enjoy the fruits of your efforts for years to come.  A good example of this would be listening to an old college chum complain about a failed relationship for hours without saying, “I told you so”. 

A BFF make the difference between feeling full and whole verses feeling sad and empty.

Relationships are not always totally selfless.  As we, mature our relationship needs grow and change. Your "girls" become your "sisters" when they pass certain test. These tests can be small or large.

Regardless of the size of the test the way you or your "boys" (or your girls) handle the situation will determine whether you will grow closer or slowly pull apart.  If a person you considered like a sister/bother to you  fails to meet your needs, it hurts the relationship badly. 

Although having a special person that know all of your secrets are wonderful gifts in our lives we do sometimes grow apart.  If this happens, you must trust that it is for the best.  Always remember that everything happens for a reason.   True camaraderie is something you must earn each day — it is not an unconditional arrangement.

Don’t push the limits of your BFF by asking for unreasonable favors, or by taking advantage of the person’s good will. 

Men relationships are unique as well. Often time it is more difficult for men to create true friendships. Click here for tips on men relationships.
