Are you best friends with the honest girl in your group? Well, then you should count yourself lucky, as they are the best kinds of friends!
Friends should be two things – Honest and eternal.
Honesty is a rarely found attribute in a person. Having a muse who listens and doles out advice at the same time is a rare phenomenon these days. Who doesn’t appreciate friendship with someone who is genuine and rare as a friend and confidante?
We all love it when a friend, especially someone who, keeps it real and shares a bittersweet relationship with us. It’s true that at times we like to hear some irresistible lies in the form of compliments from our friends. It inevitably makes our day better.
But when this turns into a consistent habit of sugarcoating lies and not being genuine with your friend, it might put the friendship in jeopardy.
“Friendship is mutual blackmail elevated to the level of love.” – Robin Morgan
Friendship is two-way communication. You don’t like her new dress? Spit it on her face. Do you think the guy she is obsessing over is no good? Spill that too.
If you end up fighting, there’s always food to mend it together!
Such is the mark of the true friend.
Here are the reasons why you should befriend a girl who is true and a real soul mate:
1. Most of the time, their fake-girl-radar is bang on target.
You will find that a lot of the times, the honest people are very observant. Especially when it comes to saving your friend’s back. They turn into FBI agents detecting every single detail of the people in your surroundings, especially the ones who are trying to win your heart, your prospective boyfriends.
Your girlfriend will spot the traits in a stranger and will be able to warn you about a new friend in class or even one in your neighborhood.
The bad company is well detected and warned about. The most amazing fact is that her advice is mostly foolproof and has actually saved you from numerous catastrophic circumstances.
2. They are the good Samaritans in your life.
Most young girls who like to dress up will find themselves being patronized every now and then by a coterie of admirers or even friends.
But honest friends will tell you how you have missed the cut by a very big margin and you have lipstick on your teeth. Can you imagine the jeering she always saves you from?
If they find that your sense of fashion is not going with the occasion or your lipstick color makes you look like a vampire; they will exactly point that out to you; no mincing, no dulcorating.
3. They are your personal therapists.
Most honest girlfriends will tell you how you are misbehaving and have fallen off the target when it comes to doing certain things.
When you are going through a lag, she will not give up on you. These are the friends who stick to you even during your worst phase. Even if you are disappointed with your performance, they embark on trust on you and motivate you to hold on.
Their advice about how to deal with life, with love and downfall, seems to be more worthwhile than any expert advice, simply because they know us to the core.

4. They are not backstabbers.
A real friend will not backbite and talk about your limitations behind your back. If she is not satisfied with your actions or behavior, the real friend will walk up to you to settle scores face to face.
