We know it isn’t as easy as it sounds, but having a boyfriend who could give you the same support of your best friend would be absolutely amazing, wouldn’t it? Here’s why we think your man should also be your bestie.

1. You’ll be completely comfortable
When you’ve reached this stage of the relationship, you know that accidentally farting in front of your partner will be OK because you can just laugh it off. And that he won’t be turned off when you remove your war paint and contact lenses while lounging in an old oversized tee. Honesty will also flow easily, making the relationship a stronger and healthier one.

So now you won’t look like this.

2. Gatherings won’t be awkward
He’ll not only know your friends, but also be their friends too, just like how you should be to his pals. Double dates will be so much more fun, and you guys can all travel overseas together! Plus, you won’t have to sit around waiting for his conversation with his bros to end—you can join them.

3. You’ll have your soulmate
Not only will you have a lover, but you’ll also have someone who understands you and loves you despite your flaws and quirkiness. Sure, a relationship needs passion and physical attraction, but it’s also important to spend your life with a person who can connect with you on a deeper level.

4. You can talk about the future
It’ll be totally all right to discuss about bigger topics that concern the future, or even planning for it. In fact, this helps to prep the both of you for any challenges ahead instead of just putting it off and risk ruining your relationship in the future. After all, addressing issues is always better than running away. He also won’t run away when you mention words like “family”, “parents” or “marriage”!
