Where is the Thelma to my Louise?
All relationships are tough. They take compromise, work and sacrifice.
And friendships are no different. It’s not all about having someone to unleash your inner Coyote Ugly with on a Friday night. You need someone to be there telling you you’re strong. And telling you to step away from the spoon when you’re poised above your third jar of Nutella.
Unfortunately, sometimes (try as they might) your real life buddies can leave a little bit to be desired, and you realise- there are certain characteristics from your fictional friends that you would love to have in your real-world life.
Here are a few of the fantasy BFFs I would love to have in my life:
You want a friend who will keep your secrets, or at least try to.
Joey put in a valiant effort in keeping Chandler and Monica’s relationship on the DL, post-London episode. It may have all come out in the end, but he certainly did his best.
Olive Penderghast- Easy A
A friend who will lie for you.
Okay, granted- Olive’s lie for Brandon gets a
lot little bit out of hand. But there is no denying her heart was in the right place. You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours.
Also- Emma Stone.
Abbi and/or Ilana- Broad City
If you ever find yourself freaking out that you haven’t got your shit sorted, it’s nice to take comfort in the fact that your mate has it together even less than you.
