Every girl values her boyfriend greatly. We turn to our boyfriends for more than just a romantic partnership, they are actually our biggest supporters, greatest confidants, and best friends. More than a boyfriend, they are actually our partners in crime, and always there when we need them. The bond, connection, and strength that you develop with them are meaningful beyond words. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to be married, have a ring on my left hand, and so on. But first, once you find a boyfriend, if things are going well, he’ll become your best friend.
1. He Always Listens
OK, so you had a bad day at work. He is always there to listen and offer his advice, given the situation or dilemma. I find that boyfriends almost find it their duty to problem solve, or make us feel better: and they do their best! If you ever need a shoulder to cry on, an unbiased opinion, advice, or just a listening ear, he’s your man. Having a boyfriend isn’t always make-out sessions and dinner dates, (although those are fun too) its a consistent effort to not only get to know them, make the person happy, but create and share new memories with the person you deeply care for.
2. He Is Always Down To Adventure
Another reason why your boyfriend is also your best friend is to travel. Trip to Florida? Trip to New York city? He’s down. Or at least we hope he is. Creating memories and traveling together is a great way to bond, grow closer, and experience new things together as a couple. The excitement of traveling is fun in the end of itself, but when you add your boyfriend or partner, it intensifies the fun and romance. Knowing that you have a sidekick always by your side no matter what is comforting, to say the least.
3. His Love
The truth is, our boyfriends do want to spoil us and give us all their love. Every couple fights and no relationship is perfect. It’s important to remember that through the not so great times, it is a deeply meaningful relationship that extends far more than intimacy. The love you get from a boyfriend is truly cherish-able and can cheer you up on any given day. Even though guys can be seen as tough, their kisses and affection speak louder. There isn’t anything more powerful than love, besides cuddling up with your best friend and knowing you are cared for.
4. His Humor
Boyfriend humor is the best humor. The endless inside jokes, laughter, and humor that you share with your boyfriend equate to any childhood best friend that I can think of. Laying in bed, with your boyfriend, laughing up a storm and staring at the person your in love with can truly not be beaten. He’s there to make you laugh, cheer you up, and help you de-stress.
5. His Comfort Level
While in a relationship, you’ll see different sides to the other person, and that’s okay. Sides you wouldn’t normally see, and bodily functions are not off-limits. That’s what makes it awesome, the boyfriend/ girlfriend dynamic is truly one of a kind because of how high the trust level and comfort level is between the two of you. There isn’t anything you can’t share with one another, and nothing is considered gross. That type of relationship is hard to come by, so enjoy every minute of it!
6. His Affection
Everyone wants to feel loved, and be smothered with kisses, duh! It is truly one of the most amazing feelings in life to know that you have love and affection with another person, in addition to a strong connection and chemistry. I once said to my best friend, “love is one of life’s most precious gifts”, and that it is. We all love our boyfriends for so many reasons, but his love and affection surely is one of them. What’s between a boyfriend and girlfriend is so much more than what meets the eye, it is a companionship at any time or day, and always knowing that your best friend is by your side.
7. The Memories
Having a boyfriend who’s also your best friend is priceless. The number of memories that you create together will stay with you for nearly a lifetime. It’s a bond built on trust, respect, admiration, and genuine love. The best part of the memories is that the two of you can look back upon all that you’ve shared and created together as a couple, and seen how much you’ve grown together. Scrolling through photos on your iPhone, a picture really is worth a thousand words!
8. He’s Always Your Meal Date
Let’s face it, we all like to eat, and the best thing about your boyfriend being your best friend, he’s always there to grab food with you. I love going on dates, and going out to restaurants. Having a boyfriend is almost like always having a date for lunch and dinner (and breakfast!) Enjoy the meals by your best friends side.
9. The Connection
When it comes to having a boyfriend, of course, the undeniable connection and bond that the two of you share are worth millions, and it shouldn’t go unnoticed! We all have dated around, and almost half of us have probably thought, “I’ll never find someone”, but that isn’t true! Finding that special someone is more meaningful than words could ever describe. You both have the same values, similar interests, similar dislikes, and the list goes on. Enjoy and savor it! Finding someone in life that you are romantically compatible with can be an uphill battle, but when you find the right partner, hold ’em tight, don’t ever let them go, because whether you know it or not, they are truly your best friend.
