Mindy Kaling said it best in The Mindy Project when she flawlessly asserted on behalf of her own BFF relationships:
“A best friend isn’t a person, Danny. It’s a tier.”
Having more than one best friend, inevitably, leads to a fair amount of backlash from people who don’t understand the term. No, I’m not misrepresenting my relationships to turn people against each other (because let me tell you right now, girls with multiple best friends can’t get away with that kind of drama); having more than one best friend means that I am LUCKY enough in my life to have people I love equally, deeply, and indefinitely.
And that’s okay.
