It might take us a minute to find that special group of girls we love. Some of us take decades to find them.
But once we’ve found our tribe, you’d be amazed at what a group of empowered, supportive women can accomplish. Magic happens when females who build each other up, instead of tear one another down. It’s a rare and special thing.
My best girls are there for me when I want to laugh as well as when I need to cry. My favorite friendships are with women who are present and honest, and there’s never a question where I stand with them.
The funny people of Twitter understand the complicated, fulfilling love that is female friendship:
True friends get our weirdness:
Friendship: When two weirdos accept each other even though they're weirdos.

No matter how weird:

They understand that your dislikes are even more important than what you like:
Liking the same stuff is one thing. But hating the same things? True friendship.
— Jen Doll (@thisisjendoll) January 14, 2016
True friends are fiercely loyal:

While BFFs will defend you in life as well as death:
A friend will bail you out of jail, a best friend knows the password to your phone so they can delete all your nude selfies if you die

True friends have seen the ugliest sides of us:
if i havent embarrassingly sang around you then we arent true friends

And the bitchiest:

We practically speak our own language:
Best friends have conversations impossible to understand by other people.

We had to learn the hard way what supportive female friendships looks like:
fucked up we don't know what real supportive female friendship looks like bc we so rarely see it on tv and in movies

And we understand the unique obstacles specific to women:
43% of being friends with women is us soothing each other after the world has convinced us our expectations were too demanding/unreasonable.
— Sophia Benoit (@1followernodad) May 8, 2015
But we smash those stereotypes every day:
the stereotype is that women are catty & unfriendly to each other meanwhile we're making 500 new friends in every bathroom line we stand in

True friends will support us even when we don’t make any damn sense:
Friendship: because I've said many dumb things & you acted like they were TED talks
— Aparna Nancherla (@aparnapkin) June 3, 2014
And we bring the party with us, wherever we go:

BFFs understand what’s really important in life:
Best friends don’t care if your house is clean. They care if you have wine.
— fierceless (@fierceIess) November 26, 2015
And they just complete you in ways that other people don’t:
True friendship is when you walk into their house and your WiFi connects automatically. 😝😝
— mi (@uminrfrhim) November 23, 2015
It’s a bond that other people just don’t understand:

They complete your sentences and sometimes even help you draft replies to your texts:
if you don't screenshot a message and send it to your best friend and ask "what do i say" are you really even best friends?!
— Relatable (@omgrelatabIe) November 29, 2015
This is also true for close groups of girl friends:
If you are dating one of my girls just know that your arguments are displayed in our group chat and as a team we have written the response
— ㅤ (@FemaleBibIe) November 30, 2015
In fact, BFFs pretty much know everything about your love life:

— FREDDY (@FreddyAmazin) June 7, 2016
But seriously, best friends are everything:
friends who inspire you to be a better person & push your creative boundaries are very important & wonderful. shoutout to them

So tag someone in this post so you can have a BFF love fest:

Because good friends are life:
A great rule to live by is that whenever you can support the dope things your friends do, do it.

And everyone else can suck it:
LIFE HACK: you literally do not have to be friends with people you don't like

Ladies, we need each other. So find your girls, remind them that you love them, and never let them go.
