6 Thoughts A Girl Have When Her Bestie Gets A Boyfriend

When your best friend gets a boyfriend does she say not without my best friend often? Probably not. And it does hurt a bit doesn’t it? Because a best friend is the Rachel to your Monica, the Gunther to your coffee, the Joey to your pizza and the Chandler to your sarcasm. In short, she is the one you run to share the latest piece of gossip.
Your fingers are already texting her while you are witnessing a catfight and you cannot imagine watching a horror movie with anyone else. Yes, she is your best friend. You have been friends since you learnt to say A, B, C… Or maybe you just knew you were going to get along when you caught each other making the bitch face when the meanest girl in the class passed by.
Every girl has had that one best friend in her life, the kind of friend who is the only constant when everything else around her life changed. You have even considered marrying 2 brothers to end up in the same family or digging an underground tunnel just to secretly meet and crib about grown up life. And then you get a text that reads ‘He asked me out and I said yes!’ and all hell breaks loose.
# Third wheel, supporting cast and what not
You realise you are no longer the centre of her universe and always find yourself being a third wheel to their hangout time. Initially, you even laugh at his jokes for your best friend’s sake but you soon give up and just sigh and roll your eyes wishing for time to just pass faster. You come to terms with the fact that your best friend has a boyfriend now.
# Clueless and annoyed
The third wheel thing will seem bearable as soon as you realise you have no clue what the couple is laughing at. You hate their inside jokes, secretly cursing your friend for being so annoying.
# One Mississippi, two Mississippi
Your best friend cannot shut up about the date she had the other day and you, being a good best friend, carry out your duty to duly acknowledge, even throw in an awww every once in a while, counting Mississippi all that time. Breathe! This is just the beginning. You are part of this whole thing of your bestie having a boyfriend, yet you are out of it. What a strange situation.
# When your game backfires
So the next time the love birds hang out with you, you decide to pull out the big guns and start making inside jokes that only and only your best friend would understand in the whole world! ‘Take that you jerk’ is what you are saying to yourself, but before you finish your punch line, your bestie goes, ‘Oh let’s talk about it later, I don’t want him to feel out of place’. And that is when you begin to resent the dude.
# Having to shop alone
Shopping is just another task on the checklist that you are now doing alone. Your best-friend-forever is busy planning a surprise birthday party for her guy and you end up wandering at the mall, trying really to find the meaning of life. You seriously contemplate moving towns or even adopting a cat.
# Being dumped for a guy
This one really hurts! You finally look forward to spending some alone time with your girlfriend and are too excited to watch the latest RomCom when you get the call 30 minutes before the movie that starts with the words ‘Hey listen, can we reschedule..’ You cannot believe you are being dumped for a guy who has been in your bestie’s life for 2 months.
