Who says the most important relationship in your life has to be a romantic one? You and your girlfriends are partners for life and the connection you share is truly special. Having a boyfriend is a nice perk, but nothing sustains you like the connection you have with your BFF.

She offers so much that no one else can. She knows you better than anyone else. You feel comfortable around her. The etiquette of dating is exhausting and sometimes you just need to hang out at home in your sweat pants and eat junk food.

Your best friend loves when you snort while laughing, so why hold back? Have you ever tried complaining about mansplaining to your boyfriend?

10 reasons your bff will always make you happier than any romantic relationship

Thankfully, your best friend knows better than anyone that there is nothing more relaxing than having a spa night at home. Your best friend respects that you know what you are talking about so she will always hear you out.

Your best friend knows what you looked like in your awkward phase because she was probably your Facebook friend before you purged your embarrassing photos. When you act petty, instead of judging you for it, she asks how she can help. Your best friend sees your potential better than anyone else. When your self-esteem is low she reminds you how beautiful and powerful you truly are. She wants to watch you succeed and she somehow always knows exactly how to help you do that.

She shows you physical affection without expecting sex. She also probably knows how to braid hair like a pro. She wants to be there to help you grow and thrive.
