Why Having Two Best Friends Makes You The Luckiest Girl Alive

The three best friend girl squad is an untouchable team everyone is envious of. Your special friendship is unique and beautiful, and lacks some of the downsides a traditional best friend situation comes with. Having two best friends instead of one makes you so lucky, for these 10 reasons and more:

  1. At least one of your besties is always available to hang. When you have two best friends, you never have to be alone. You never need a guy to avoid feeling lonely, because at least one of your girls will always be there when you need her.
  2. You get two perspectives on every one of your problems. You get two unique perspectives and twice as much free counseling when you have two besties. If one of your girls can’t help you with a problem, the other one is likely to have some insightful advice. You basically have a personal advisory council, and your best friends would never steer you wrong.
  3. You’re half way to having a party every time they’re around. Turning a low key hangout session into a party is easy when there’s three of you. When you each send out a couple texts, your night can go from lame to amazing in no time.
  4. No one can mess with you. Random drunk girl trying to start a fight at the bar? Idiot guy can’t take no for an answer? Your two best friends always swoop in when trouble’s starting and back you up 100 percent. No one likes the three against one odds, so you’re untouchable with your girls beside you.
  5. There’s twice as much girl stuff for you to borrow. You have two closets and bathrooms to raid any time you’ve grown tired of the stuff you already own. Any last minute freak outs about what to wear to a big date or interview are easily fixed with the massive amounts of stuff you can borrow between your two best friends.
  6. There’s always a tie breaker. If you’re ever divided on whether to go out or stay in, or where to spend your evening, there’ll never be a tie. Even when two against one means you don’t get your way, at least you aren’t frozen with indecision.
  7. Having two best friends is actually cheaper than having one. There’s double the chance of you getting into the club for free or getting hooked up with free drinks when you have two besties by your side, and splitting the Uber three ways makes it basically free.
  8. You’ll never accidentally drift apart. Busy lifestyles can make it easy to neglect a friendship, even one you honestly cherish. When there are three people in a bestie relationship, at least one of you will always be paying attention enough to notice when you start to drift apart, and schedule an emergency hangout session.
  9. Your special days are always memorable. Birthdays, holidays, and any celebrations always turn out magically when you have two best friends doing the planning. Sometimes that extra set of hands makes it feel like you had a personal party planner in your corner, and there’s no one else you’d rather celebrate with.
  10. They help you get your act together. When one friend tells you that your life is in shambles or you’re acting like a lunatic, it’s easy to live in denial and ignore them. But when you have two best friends who agree that you’re plummeting downhill fast, it’s a serious wake up call. With two best friends on your side, you’ll get through any rough patch without becoming a complete disaster, because two best friends is the best support system any girl could ask for.
