If you are Gentleman who is reading this post then it’s really helpful for you in understanding every darling female around you, like Sister\Mother\Fiancée\Female Friend\Wife and if you are Senorita who is reading this post then darlings I am very sure you will have tons to add to this post …
But lets start with a question!
State any difference between the following:-
Good friend\Close Friend\ Best Friend \ Close Buddy
Men would answer as no difference all are same - friends!
But then we women folks have very significant difference for all of these! The adjectives or the prefix matters a lot when we introduce female friends.
My ‘Prefix’ challenged Hubby’s confusion leads me to write this post. Recently we met a friend whom I introduced to my hubs saying that she is my close buddy from my engineering days! So after bidding bye he asked me some details about our friendship but then I had to tell him that she was not “thaaaat” close but she was just close buddy not my best friend types!(Men, forget it you cannot decode this line, Women sure ;) would have understood what I meant :D )
My hubs was totally lost trying to understand the difference in the similar words (MEN!) and so I am sure every men are challenged with such situations. Then I decided to help ‘Man’ Kind by putting this up in my blog!
So here is the glossary for understanding what exactly that “_____” \Adjective before the word “Friend” means
Good friend: One with whom we have spent a significant amount of time and have shared everyday details. Beyond that no connection, you would hardly wait to know what this friend is doing on weekend!
Close friend: If you think first one and this should be same! Then *Blunder* no its not this has this formula Close Friend = Good Friend + once or twice has seen us cry for various reason so this friend type knows little bit of our dirty secrets :D. (Need to be bit careful while introducing to your fiancee… ;) )
Best Friend: No wait don’t jump into conclusion! its not same as 2, its different. This person’s formula is this - Best Friend = Close Friend + We know this person’s dirty secret as well … see now you know the difference :D. By which I mean it is perfectly safe to introduce this person to anyone because this friend comes with deal which is ‘You scratch my back and I scratch yours”.
Close Buddy: they are toooooo irritatingly dependent on us!!! They also call us to ask personal advice also sometimes to sob over call and you feel like saint and extremely superior while you are advising them! And you often find their problems are super silly! Such people you don’t want to let them down by calling them just friends so these are termed as “Buddies” So that’s Close Buddy That’s it!
See how significantly different these are? Don’t you see the difference now?
And also there are other words like “Thaat” “Not So” “Very” “ok ok” adds lot of meaning, difference and flavors to degree of friendship!!! So now I have educated ‘Man’Kind!!! :D
P.S1: As I was drafting this post, My hubs just told me that he met my college friend on the way to office and she asked him how is her “Close Buddy” doing :( !!!! Seems like I learnt my lesson!
P.S2: if you think Ramya is too cold hearted!!! Nooooooooo not at all you are all my…friends ;) so this post is only intended to make you smile for a while! :D
