10 Reasons Dwight Schrute Would Make The Best, Best Friend
Wade Wilson

Dwight K. Schrute, aka Michael Scott's right-hand man, and Assistant (to the) Regional Manager in "The Office". Dwight's personality is one that make you laugh and cringe at the same time. That being said, he has so many great qualities that would qualify him to be one of the world's best friends.

Despite his quirks and interesting behaviors, I think we can all agree that Dwight has a kind heart with good intentions that would make him the best, best friend.

And here is why:

1. He will go to great lengths to make you laugh (even if it's unintentional).

For example, remember when he got a pumpkin stuck on his head for hours on end? That's funny stuff.

2. He's always there to comfort others when they're sad.

Sometimes he just doesn't know what not to ask.

3. He knows a lot of random yet interesting facts, which would probably keep conversation flowing.

4. He is highly ambitious.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F27%2F6362114337021823501718193794_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=34&h=708a39d59405f22c6c3853ce007e2f5aa6c6a193a5d6d8f6bbb733a4833dd677&size=980x&c=2378530959 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F27%252F6362114337021823501718193794_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D34%26h%3D708a39d59405f22c6c3853ce007e2f5aa6c6a193a5d6d8f6bbb733a4833dd677%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2378530959%22%7D" expand=1]

Having Dwight as a friend would mean having someone who is constantly pushing you to better yourself. Or just to get a promotion. Whatever works.

5. He cares about others' health.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F27%2F6362114384214936121527042139_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=345&h=2da1d81d42151aa2366cfefa3014ab38e4fdfc1c11403d7c24f6f4f94519c81d&size=980x&c=2758694134 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F27%252F6362114384214936121527042139_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D345%26h%3D2da1d81d42151aa2366cfefa3014ab38e4fdfc1c11403d7c24f6f4f94519c81d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2758694134%22%7D" expand=1]

Like when practically the whole office contracted lice. His concern was actually very caring if you read between the lines of his actions. In addition, he's obsessed with beets, which have wonderful nutritional value. I bet being Dwight's friend would entail eating numerous beets, therefore the potential to improve your diet is there too.

6. He will help you out when you make a stupid mistake.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F27%2F6362114399889204661937796704_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=985&h=f064830111336c761d62a8b326684e4c1e6e09c578845946e4f6820493a74c62&size=980x&c=326000528 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F27%252F6362114399889204661937796704_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D985%26h%3Df064830111336c761d62a8b326684e4c1e6e09c578845946e4f6820493a74c62%26size%3D980x%26c%3D326000528%22%7D" expand=1]

The dude literally rubbed peanut butter all over Michael's head because he got gum in his hair. That's friendship.

7. Dwight is always down for a midday trip.

To the roller rink? Sure. To look for Michael who was accidentally left at a gas station? Of course. To the middle of the woods to humor Michael into reenacting Survivor Man? Duh.

8. His knowledge of martial arts could really help a friend out when they're in a pickle.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F27%2F6362114360790280411689709511_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=29&h=19c824e1c077aabc6dcf79a5c90526875d2ad581f6caf42f5e30874f1754908b&size=980x&c=3583697622 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F27%252F6362114360790280411689709511_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D29%26h%3D19c824e1c077aabc6dcf79a5c90526875d2ad581f6caf42f5e30874f1754908b%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3583697622%22%7D" expand=1]

9. He is brutally honest.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F27%2F6362114444889951971158271224_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=986&h=b24572a87e4d9a5f3aaa85f6b7ba31607ffac6b0295572d487f2b4a1bc6edc29&size=980x&c=1050631226 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F27%252F6362114444889951971158271224_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D986%26h%3Db24572a87e4d9a5f3aaa85f6b7ba31607ffac6b0295572d487f2b4a1bc6edc29%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1050631226%22%7D" expand=1]

He will tell you if those pants make you look fat.

10. No matter how long it's been, Dwight will always be there for the people he loves.

I think all of us shed a tear seeing his reaction when his forever BFF Michael showed up to Dwight and Angela's wedding. S'cute.

Dating A 'Type-A' Girl

It is all worth it in the end.


You have probably been asked before if you were a Type-A or Type-B personality. People who are considered to be "Type A" tend to be impatient, competitive and ambitious. They know exactly what they want to do and when they want to do it. Then there are people who are considered "Type B." People with Type-B personality are just all around more relaxed. There isn't much that is going to stress them out.
