Ross, Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Joey and Chandler – we’ve grown up watching them and have always been in awe of their everlasting friendship. Secretly hoping to someday find a gang that we could laze around at our own version of ‘Central Perk’ with.Personally, I’ve always been drawn to the bond Rachel and Monica have on the show – friends in high school and so close till date – they set the standard on bestie goals for me. I wanted that relationship.

But you can’t just want it and expect it to happen, creating bonds that last a lifetime takes a good amount of work.
So what exactly does it take to make friendships like that? The answer is simple. Be a good friend.
So we asked the winners of the #MyBestSupport contest Shanya and Divya about what it took to be a good friend – here’s the inside scoop.
How to be a good friend:
Don’t go around talking trash about your friend to other people. Respect her, cherish her and stick to her.
Friends share secrets that’s what strengthens their bond – and these secrets shared must always remain between the two of you.
Be a listener:
Always be there for your friend when she needs a shoulder to cry on, be her listener – show her that what she has to say is important.
Spend time with each other:
Do fun activities together and make memories, experience things TOGETHER and that’s how you build a friendship that will last a lifetime. (Shanya and Divya roam around visiting new food hubs trying different dishes, they also enjoy impersonating other people and share a lot of inside jokes)
So that’s that, here’s hoping you’ve found your Monica/Rachel!
Here’s to the millions of memories, thousands of shared secrets and hundreds of inside jokes you’d make and share with that one best friend.
