There’s nothing quite like the love of a good friend

They make everything better and turn bad days into good ones. They’re present when you need advice or a shoulder to cry on, they’re willing to spend hours helping you put together your IKEA furniture, and listening to all of your issues.

That’s why it’s necessary to have this sort of relationship before getting deep into a romantic relationship. This sort of friendship will only strengthen the romantic bond you share with your partner.

Relationships require solid foundations — and friendships are perfect for that

A good friendship is the foundation you need for a successful relationship because it gives you a chance to get to know someone before you make a commitment.

When you’re friends with someone, you have the opportunity to see how they handle different situations and whether or not they’re compatible with you.

If you’re able to resolve conflicts and remain friends, then that’s a good sign that you can do the same in a romantic relationship.

Friendships also help to build trust and communication, which are both essential components of any successful relationship.

Trust is important because it helps to keep the relationship strong even when things are difficult. Communication is key because it allows both partners to express their needs and wants.

If you can communicate effectively with your friend, then you’ll be able to do the same in a romantic relationship.

No matter what you face, you’ll be facing it with your best friend
