21 Questions Your Best Friend Should Be Able To Answer

Can your "best friend" pass the test?

"This song's for all you best friends out there, 'kay? You make sure you always got each other's backs, you understand? Cause if you don't have each other's backs, ain't nobody gonna have your back." -Krispy Kreme

1. What is your favorite type of donut?

It is crucial to know what type of donut your best friend likes, for when you surprise them with breakfast. One of my friends once got me a creme-filled donut; this was before she was at the "best friend" stage. Now that she is aware, my best friend knows to get me a glazed donut.

2. What do you want to name your children?

I feel like this subject should come up in a discussion between two who claim to be best friends.

3. What size clothes/shoes do you wear?

I love to shop, for myself mostly, but also for my friends, when I'm feeling generous. When picking up a gift for your best friend, you should not have to ask what size they wear.

4. What would you like to drink?

If your best friend is in the restroom when the waiter comes to take your drink order, you should be able to tell them what the both of you would like to order.

5. What is your phone number?

Let's say you are lost and your phone is dead. You need your best friend to give you a ride, but you don't seem to know their number. This would be quite the predicament.

6. Who was your first kiss?

For girls especially, this is just something you should know about your best friend.

7. What are your passwords for your social media accounts?

If you can guess your best friend's password, you're crazy good. If you just know their password from them telling you, that'll get you there, too.

8. What is your favorite color?

This is a go-to for any friendship, of any kind.

9. What kind of student are/were you in high school?

If you cannot tell by their ethics and intelligence, then you should probably rethink your "best friend" title, or ask.

10. Who has been your hardest goodbye?

Your best friend should care about your past enough to know the answer to this one.

11. What is your favorite movie?

My best friends would answer this one with "Big Daddy."

12. What is one thing you want to do before you die?

If you and your best friend haven't made a bucket list together, then are you even best friends?

13. Who is your celebrity crush?

A cool best friend would even arrange for you to meet your favorite celebrity.

14. What is your pet peeve?

When you are around a person for long enough, you will eventually discover their pet peeve/peeves.

15. What are your life goals?

A best friend should know what your plans are in life, from your career to family and everything in between. They should know how many kids you want, where you want to live and what kind of pet you want.

16. Who will you be voting for for president?

Best friends can discuss serious matters, too.

17. What are your beliefs?

This is important to know and accept about one, in order to be best friends.

18. Who has your heart?

As a best friend, you are trusted as the person, in which, one can confide. Out of all the boys, or girls, who come in and out of your best friend's life, you should be able to tell the one who is on your best friend's mind.

19. Where do you come from?

After being around your best friend and their family, you eventually come to think of theirs as your own.

20. What is something that nobody knows about you?

This should not be a question that you are able to answer. If you truly have a best friend, they will already know everything there is to know.

21. Who is your best friend?

Well, I would hope the answer is one another.

XO and best wishes,

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it


Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.

You Don't Have To See Your Friends Every Day

We all have lives that we're trying to balance.


For as long as I can remember, whenever I would have no plans and go on Snapchat to see all my friends having fun without me, I would get FOMO. I'd get really sad and think that they didn't care about me because they didn't invite me. It would get me in such a bad mood that it would ruin any chance of going out with someone else who wanted to hang out.

I don't know if it was just my anxiety of people hating me or if it was a fear of missing out (FOMO). Even recently, it has gotten me down. However, over the past month or so, I finally realized something: you don't have to hang out every day to still consider each other friends.

Everyone has a life that they're trying to balance, especially after high school. People work (maybe even more than one job) and go to school. Some have to take care of family members or do things for their family. Some people are focusing on themselves. Some have relationships to maintain. Whatever it is, we all have lives that we're trying to balance.

We all want to have fun, but school, work, and our families are the priorities.

Even if they're out hanging with other people, it doesn't mean that they don't want to hang out with you. Free time is served on a "first come, first serve" basis. It's hard to balance hanging out with multiple people.

I also learned that it doesn't matter the number of friends you have. What truly matters is the quality. Ask yourself, "Who's there for me when I really need someone?" The people who are there for you when you really need someone to talk to are your TRUE friends.

It's not easy to be there for someone and make them feel better. If they offer to listen or give advice, they care!

I know that it may feel like you have no friends sometimes, but that's not true. Life after high school is hard at times. You're an adult. You have to do adult things and take care of yourself first.

You have to realize that everyone has a busy schedule and not all your friends' schedules will align with yours, but that's okay! You don't need to hang out with friends every day to consider them your friends. What truly matters is if they are there for you when you need them.
