BFF stands for Best Friends Forever. Popular with the younger crowd, these three letters hold the key to a successful and long-term relationship. Think about this. Obviously you have friends. And depending on your age, you probably have had some of your friends for 20 or 30 years, possibly longer.
You don’t spend day in and day out with them, but you’ve invested a lot of time talking with them, enjoying activities together, and cultivating a relationship. Our basic friendships have challenges, too. And, we work on them. Now imagine a long-term relationship – or marriage. If you want it to last until “death do you part,” you better make sure it’s built upon the most solid foundation of all – friendship.
Friendship is the key to creating a successful relationship. Without it you have nothing. Chemistry is important, without a doubt, but you need a lot more than that to sustain you through the myriad of life’s ups and downs from which no one will escape.
As a single person, you need to hone your personal skills when it comes to relationships. Rather than focusing on finding a mate, concentrate on getting to know the people you’re dating. Dating is really about relating. It’s about sharing who you are – your vision for your life, your values, your interests – and all of those wonderful things that make you unique. It’s also about learning these same things about the person you are dating.
There’s a whole lifetime ahead for romance and commitment. And, the longer you postpone that and the more you focus on developing a friendship, the more solid a foundation you’ll be able to establish with your potential life partner. Through this process, you’ll learn if you’re right for each other. If you aren’t the right match, you’ll be able to part ways with your dignity intact.
Build a strong foundation. Once you’ve done that, it’s easy to construct a successful future and relationship upon it. Take your time, get to know each other, and build a friendship you can treasure for many years ahead.
