Guy Best Friend Thanks

To My Guy Best Friend, Thank You For Being My Shoulder To Cry On

Thank you for being you!


Thank you for being my shoulder to cry on when a boy breaks my heart. That means so much to me. Without you, I never could've fully understood what goes on in a guys head.

Thank you for taking me to get ice cream at 9 o'clock at night, knowing we had school the next day. Even though your truck wakes up the neighborhood, you'd still drive over to make sure I'm okay at three in the morning without any warning.

Thank you for letting me practice makeup on you, even though you'll never admit to letting me. You look great with sparkly pink eyeshadow and your eyebrows filled in, I promise. Also, you're welcome for plucking your eyebrows whenever they get bad.

Thank you for not getting mad when I pick on you and thank you for dishing it back. Just know that any time you cut your hair short, you're going to be bald, and your truck is always going to be a yee-haw truck, no matter how much you say it isn't.

Thank you for defending me countless times. I know you won't ever admit it, but you protect me just like I was a sister to you. I'll protect you too, just like I do with my brothers.

Thank you for cheering me up with stupid songs, for driving two hours to pick me up when I was upset, and for being you, and for randomly sending me snapchats where you're screaming "I love you" at the top of your lungs, so I never forget.

Thank you for taking prom pictures with me because neither of us had a date, but we refused to go with each other. They're some of my favorite pictures I have of us. They never fail to make me laugh because they describe our relationship so well.

Without you, there would be no moments at the table where you gang up on me with my mom to make me laugh, there would be no moments where we start fighting and I always lose because you pick me up and I can't stop you. There wouldn't be the moments where I find your truck parked around town and take it for a joy ride because I may or may not have a key.

Thank you for being my best friend. I wouldn't take back meeting you my freshman year, even though I would probably have a lot fewer bruises from the times that you beat me up because I think I'm strong enough to beat you. You get on my nerves, you frustrate me beyond belief, you annoy me by randomly meowing, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. I know I annoy you too, but that's just what I do best. You'll always be one of my favorite people in life.

If you ever need help with a girl or just feel like talking to your favorite person ever, you know where to find me. I love you, Devi. Thank you for being you.

An Open Letter To My Unexpected Best Friend

You came out of nowhere and changed my life for the better.

“It's so amazing when someone comes to your life and you expect nothing out of it, but suddenly, there right in front of you is everything you ever need."


Dear Unexpected Best Friend,

You were the person I never thought I would speak to and now you are my very best friend. You came out of nowhere and changed my life for the better. I can't thank you enough for everything you have done to shape me into the person I am today. You've taught me what it means to be selfless, caring, patient, and, more importantly, adventurous.

You don't realize how much better my life has become and all because you came out of nowhere. I didn't see you coming. I just saw you on occasion, and now I can't see my life without you in it. It's funny how life works itself out like that. Our unexpected friendship filled a hole in my life that I didn't know existed.

I don't even remember what life was like before you came along; it most likely had a lot less laughter and spontaneity than it does today. I can call you about anything and you would drop whatever you're doing to help me in any situation. You know when I need encouragement. You know when I am at my best and when I am at my worst. You always know exactly what to say.

I couldn't have found a better friend than you if I tried. We balance each other out in the best way possible. You are most definitely the yin to my yang, and I don't care how cliché that sounds. Because of you, I've learned to stop caring what people think and to do my own thing regardless of any backlash I might receive. You are my very favorite part of what makes me who I am to this day.

It's as if I wished up a best friend, and poof — you appeared right in front of me. I am so beyond blessed to have you and I wouldn't trade the world for all our memories. Thanks for coming out of nowhere.

Love you forever and a day.

An Open Letter To The Friend Who Continues To Save My Life

No one knows me like you do.


From the day we became friends, we have always had nothing but support for one another. Although we have only really been friends for about seven years now, I feel as if you have always been a part of my life. You know me just as well as you know yourself, and I understand you in the same way I understand my own thoughts and feelings.

You have never made me feel pressured, insecure, or unappreciated. The mutual respect we have for one another is unmatched. We can talk to each other about anything; from some of the most trivial topics to entire life philosophies. We have grown and matured together, and I couldn't be more proud of the person you are today.

We don't always agree on everything, and I always appreciate your fresh point of view, but I have never felt more in sync with another person than I do with you. We share the same birth month, the same age, the same home town, the same anxieties, and many of the same attitudes and values.

I feel as if you know exactly when I want to be alone and when I need company. Since we are both introverted, we understand that the other person needs time to recharge. And when I'm sitting alone with nothing to do, I always get a text from you asking to hang out.

In some of my loneliest, most vulnerable moments, you have been there. When I question how many true friends I really have, you are always sure to make your love for me known.

Through high school, and now college, we have experienced so many life-changing events together. Some that have taught us extremely valuable lessons, and others that have shown us incredible pain and how to grow from our lowest moments.

I want to thank you for showing me what life-long friendship looks like. Thank you for always understanding me and never putting too much pressure on me. I see an incredible future for both of us no matter where each of our lives takes us.

We will always share a unique connection that cannot be separated by any distance. But, for now, I'm glad you're only one text or phone call away.
