6 Reasons To Cherish Your Blunt Best Friend

You may not have thought it was possible to love your BFF more than you already do. But if you’re besties with someone who always tells it like it is, then you’re about to find out why you should value their friendship even more.

Ok, so you knew your blunt friend was the best person to go to when you needed honest fashion advice, but there’s so much more good that comes out of hanging with someone of their personality type than just great style.

Because this friend of yours will never tell you a lie and ultimately, that will challenge you to reconsider decisions, adjust your attitude and so many other things that can be necessary from time to time.

Not to mention, they’re pretty fun to hang out with, too. They’re going to voice whatever is on their mind at the moment, and that can lead to great conversation and lots of laughs.

So, if you’ve got a friend who always says that they truly mean, then here’s 6 reasons you should love them (and probably hang out with them) even more than you already do!

1. They Will Always Tell You The Truth

Whether you’re coming to them to find out if those jeans make your butt look good or with more serious concerns (although that is a pretty big deal), you can always count on this BFF to give you their honest opinion.

If you’re looking for someone who’s going to tell you what you want to hear rather than what you need to hear, don’t come knocking on this person’s door!

2. No Guessing Games

There are no games here. No wondering what’s wrong or why they’re not returning your phone calls. Oh no. This comrade is always going to tell you why they’re sad, upset, or whatever it is that they’re feeling.

3. They’re The Best Shopping Partner

Oh, and if you’re looking for who will give you the best advice from the dressing room, it’s the blunt best friend. Never make a purchase you’ll regret ever again!

4. There’s Never A Dull Moment

This person will always be vocal about what they’re thinking/feeling and there’s no better way to have a good time than to be with someone who speaks their mind.

5. Honesty Is The Best Policy, Anyways

Why would you want to hang out with someone who’s not always going to be 100% honest with you? When it comes to friendship (and pretty much everything else), honesty really is the best policy!

6. You Know They Truly Care About You

If you’re able to maintain a friendship with someone who constantly tells it like it is, then you know that they really care for you. Because trust me, they wouldn’t put up with you if they didn’t absolutely enjoy it.

So, if this sounds like one of your BFFs, you now know exactly why you should treasure the bond that you share. Whether you’re shopping, deciding if you should ask for a raise, or whatever the case— this friend will be right by your side, giving you their honest opinion all the while. And it doesn’t get better than that.
