10 Reasons Best Friends Are Better than Boyfriends ...

By Melanie

In high school, I know a lot of girls are focused on their boyfriends and sometimes, they have a tendency to forget about their best friend. Their best friend is left out in the cold while the girl is dating a boy. All of a sudden, the boy seems to be the most important thing. Then, out of nowhere, the relationship ends for whatever reason, then the girl goes back to the best friend begging for forgiveness and saying she is sorry for ignoring her for all those months. Of course, the best friend accepts the apology and forgives. There are so many reasons why best friends are better than boyfriends. Below, I am going to give 10 reasons best friends are better than boyfriends …

9 They Won’t Cheat
