Dear ______,

Let’s just take a minute and reflect on the title. Take note that I say, who MY best friend deserves. Not the guy who deserves my best friend. To be quite honest, I don’t think any guy will ever deserve my best friend. That’s simply because she’s one of the most genuine and delightful people I have ever met. Many people will tell you I’m super cautious over guys who enter my friend’s lives. I question their every move, and figure out their motive before they may even have one. It’s not that I’m a psychotic friend or anything, I just don’t like seeing the ones I love being hurt in the end. Okay, so maybe I’m a little psychotic when it comes to protecting my friends, but is that such a bad thing?

Just know that if you’re the guy my best friend chooses to have an intimate relationship with, you’re one lucky guy. But also know if you dare hurt her, I’m the least of your worry. If I was you, I’d be scared of her family. Consider this a warning!

So my best friend is in awe of you. I do wish you both the best. I want you to realize just how lucky you are. If you haven’t realized her kind nurturing soul at this stage of the game, then I don’t know why you’re together. She may come across as a judgmental person, but once you peel away that layer, she is one of the most heartwarming people I know. I think that’s why I’m as protective as I am. I know she will give people chance after chance to redeem themselves. Even when the guy didn’t deserve a single minute of her attention. That’s who she is though. So, if you screw up, and she gives you another chance, please don’t take advantage of that. I understand everyone makes mistakes. It’s when you start to continuously making those mistakes, because you know she’ll keep taking you back. I promise you though, there will come a time her kindness, and that precious smile will fade, resulting in her turning her back on you. That’s when you know it’s over. You ran out of chances. So enjoy that happy go lucky girl you adore so much. Keep making her smile.

She will be one of the most confident and determined woman you’ll ever be involved with. She has this sense of confidence that will scare people away. Guys at times become intimidated by confident women, but not only does she hold that trait, she’s independent. I envy that of her. As should you. Be proud to have a women like her on your arm. She has proven time, and time again, that she doesn’t need a man to make her happy. If she allows you into her life, know she can let you go just as easily. She will hold her head up high, and walk around as if nothing can touch her. As she should! She’s a beautiful woman who has so much in life going for her. Don’t try and knock her down, because she’ll rise even higher. That’s the kind of woman she is. If that intimidates you, you certainly don’t deserve her attention.

With her in your life, you’re guaranteed to always be laughing. There is never a dull moment with her. You’ll have to be able to handle her at her wackiest. She can become spontaneous at times, you just have to go along with it! That’s the fun part of having her in your life. You never know what to expect! When she’s happy, she’s crazy. Meaning, she will make everyone around her laugh so hard they cry. You'll be laughing so hard you think you're doing an ab circuit. You have to remember and understand that she’s human. She has emotions. When she is down on herself, you have to comprehend that she needs space. Try to not take this personally. If you are the reason for her unhappiness, give her time. She’ll come around with an explanation. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t fight for her. Show her you care. Show the ones who care about her well-being, that you will do everything in your power to make things right again. Meaning me. Meaning her family. Meaning her friends. Show us that you are apologetic. Even if it wasn’t your fault. She’s worth fighting for. I would know this, because she’s my best friend. If I think you’re doing something wrong, I'll voice my opinion to you. That’s guaranteed. Just remember to remain calm and remember how happy she makes people. Everyone has their off days.

She is my best friend. I love her more than life itself. That’s why I know she is too smart, too beautiful, too strong and too much of anything to really have the right guy she deserves. I’ve seen her tackle some demons in her life, so forgive me if I don’t approve of any man she chooses to have in her life. I may give you a hard time, but know it’s because I care. Her family may bombard you with questions, but that’s because she is their little girl. Know that if you have her in your life, we all are in your life. Kind of a package deal if you ask me!

So what are you waiting for? Treasure this wonderful woman, and handle her with care. She is more than worth it. This is one thing you won't regret.

You are one lucky guy.

Sincerely,

Her Overly Protective Best Friend.
