‘Friendship’- a term which is difficult to describe, let alone the term ‘Best Friend’ is even harder. One of the many million ways you can define friendship is by sharing mutual consent to be there for each other selflessly. It takes time to build the foundation and to stick through the highs and the lows. It is a very important relationship, where one needs to put in efforts time and again. It is hard to build, harder to maintain, but worth it if you have ‘good friends ‘.
In this article, we focus more on making ‘good friendships’, rather than just knowing certain people and clubbing them under the title of friends, with no emotions as such. This is because, when we say ‘friends’, it cannot be just anyone; but has to be ‘the special people in your life.
Often, you are wondering, how to take the first step into making friends; and in many cases how to make your good friends’ level up and convert them into ‘Best Friends’. Well, firstly, your choice of Best friends will always be unexpected. Situations, decisions, and emotions make our friends change into our Best Friends because they choose to do more than they needed to and then attain a special place in one’s hearts.
Well, not only can your Best Friend Tags be questions, but it can also be various activities. Like creating a singing duet together and guessing each other’s favorite songs. Painting each other’s favorite memory in a frame. Sketching out the first place that comes into your mind when you think of your Best Friend.
Having a Best Friend is such a blessing in one’s life. Not only are they your confidants but also your chosen family. They make sure that you’re okay from time to time and provide you company on all your good and bad days. Therefore, know that you can only build your friendship with someone over the experiences that you both share together. These questions are not meant to elevate your friendship with a snap of a finger, these are just so that you always have a great time together.

Another suggestion for your fun times is that you can play this game in a group. Ask a bunch of your friends to join you and ask these questions alternatively to all. Make a note of who’s getting the higher score. Is it someone whom you thought would be able to answer all the questions or is it, someone, you did not expect to know you so well?
Well, in such a scenario you will surprisingly have a new start with that friend and who knows, you guys might hit it off well. It is always a surprise as to whom you think your best friend is and ultimately whom it turns out to be in the reality.
Know that these questions are meant to be asked with a light heart and just out of fun. Do not be a critic of your best friend’s answers and ruin your friendship over something so silly. Do not misunderstand any of your BFF’s answers and take them against your liking.
Know that it is a healthy game; and if possible, if anything personal comes out amidst it, then do your part of corrections. It is not only important to know whether your best friend knows you well or not; it is also important that you be a better friend to him/her.
Know that the other person has chosen to be your friend despite knowing all your flaws. It is very important that we focus on our side of deliveries than create huge mountains of expectations. Whatever old or new that you find out about yourself or of your best friend through this game, make sure it only brings more positivity and clarity to your friendship.
Make a happy space among each other and enjoy the time with each other. Often, we lead our sense of judgement to create a lot of misunderstandings in the relationship we have with others. Know that this is a great chance of getting rid of such misunderstandings, and clear out all your confusions. Spend a fun, loving and great time with each other.
