Are they your best friend?
Hell YEAH! We ride together, we die together, BFFs for LYFE
Nope, I have a best friend, and I have them, and the love I feel is different for both
Kinda, I'm not really sure I can put words to it.

Statistically you'd think that I'd sometimes fluke into typing a decent post. Nah. Only the most tedious, shitty posts, all day every day baby!

Don't bother engaging me, I don't ever get the hints to fuck off.




So I got into it with a coworker when I said that my wife isn't my best friend. I explained that I love my wife more than anybody in the world, which means my relationship with her is fundamentally different than that of a friend, best or otherwise. I further pointed out that I did not want to share a bed with or sleep with any of my best friends, unlike how I feel about romantic partners. So what do you guys think? Is your spouse/partner/boytoy/galpal a friend, something more, or a mix of both?

She and I met each other while organizing a local Occupy chapter.
We dated through the aftermath and became soul mates through the Quebec student strike of 2012 while chased by riot police, dodging flash bang grenades and producing propaganda videos together that have amassed millions of views and founding an indepedent media that's still alive and well and has since moved mountains, literally, in so many ways, including getting a corrupt mayor overthrown.
8 years later we're a couple for life no matter what, now going through a zombie movie together.

Now fully expecting to go through a real life star wars movie together.

Glad you asked! Thanks for the reminder.

She's my best friend, partner in crime, lover, sexer in chief and everything else I could ask for. Bring on the apocalypse, I'm living through it with my favorite human.


e: sorry Burt for the politics. Please don't ban.

My SO is like a friend that doesn't share my interests, references, worldview, values or political views.

My wife and I don't share every single interest, for example she doesn't share my love for tabletop RPGs and I don't share her love for sewing and small crafts. We have best friends for those things.

I had an ex who was my best friend. When we broke up I was super hosed up because I lost not only the woman I was planning on marrying but the person I trusted the most in my life.

Of course, she knows who my best friend is and enjoys their company too.

She was one of my best friends. I had others.

I feel that people are different enough that it doesn't make much sense to have a single "best" friend, but instead several close friends who compliment you in different ways.

I would say your best friend is probably the person you want to voluntarily spend the most time with. Could be just a friend, could be family, hell could be a colleague if you're both workaholics and married to your job, but if you do have a romantic partner it's kind of weird it wouldn't be them.

How long have you been married to her OP?

My answer yes, after 15 years it kind of just happens. From my pov (and others, it seems) I'd be concerned about your marriage.

In the r/relationships thread we're seeing an upswing in couples that can't stand being quarantined together because somehow I guess they just both individually decided that they needed to have a romantic partner to share rent with and occasionally gently caress but they didn't actually need to like that person or spend time outside of that with. Now that they seemingly have to spend time together they have realized they in fact don't like each other.

I imagine they wouldn't call each other best friends either OP.

we were best friends before we started dating and we're best friends now, however making the leaps from platonic bff to bangin' to married were pretty loving terrifying because of all the horror stories we've heard about this sort of thing, we leaned pretty heavily on each other during bad times before we started dating and it would have been catastrophic if we threw that friendship away but somehow it worked out good

sucks we're in the apocalypse now but I couldn't think of a better person to be careening face-first into the abyss with

Yeah, thinking about it more I'd say a better way to put it is that no one person can satisfy all of your needs, and it's healthy to have close friends besides your partner, but if there was one friend that you'd want to get stuck in quarantine and face the end of the world with it had better be your SO.

Yeah, I think I'm just using best friend in a way different to most other people. Obviously the person I have the most in common with and want to spend the most time with is my SO. But I don't want to spend 24/7/365 with her, and she doesn't want that either, we're still two separate people. So if I'm not spending time with her my next choice is probably going to be the person I call my best friend.
