The best kind of relationship is when they’re not only your lover, but your best friend too.
DJ and I are best friends and it is a great feeling, knowing that no matter what else happens in life he is there for me. Whenever anything happens, my first thought is always that I want to tell DJ about this.
If you think about what you would expect from a best friend, things like; someone who wishes you happiness and success, someone who you can rant at when things stress you out and someone who you want to share your news with. Why would you not want those qualities in your partner?
I know that DJ wants the best for me, he is my number one cheerer! He listens to my crazy rants when I’ve had a bad day and he knows that it works both ways and I am there for him too.
I am not suggesting that you should not have other friends but to me, it is important that DJ is regarded as my very best friend. I have seen other people in relationships where they put telling their news to their other best friends before their partner. They spend all of their free time on the phone to their best friends and going out with their best friends and their partners hardly ever see or even speak to them as they are busy with their friends. Needless to say, these relationships often end badly.
Marriage is getting to have a sleepover with your best friend every night of the week.
