Best friends can come out of everywhere, anywhere, at any time. Unfortunately, this rule usually applies to kids more often than adults. It seems so much easier when you're younger. You can basically make a friend out of accident. Sometimes, it can last forever and then you can talk about it on the internet.


Reddit user, u/pijeN57, wanted to hear your best friend "meet-cute" when they asked:

What's the weird way you met one of your now best friends?

Best Aim

Giphy

I threw a rock. I wasn't aiming at him, but I hit him in the eye. The teacher made us sit together for the rest of recess.

He's a really nice guy.

A Rivalry Turned Partnership

We were both trying to get with the same girl.

Eventually started talking, became best friends, and completely forgot about the girl. We've been best friends for nearly a decade now.

Never Doubt The Power Of Rainbows

I went to her birthday party in kindergarten.

Realized she had the same Rainbow Brite sheets as me and we instantly bonded over that. 30 years later and we are still best friends!

What more do you need to start a bromance?

Beans? Beans.

We're both 22 now and met in 6th grade.

During class, our teacher had asked "who here doesn't like beans?" and I raised my hand since...you know, I'm not a big fan. I was the only one in class to raise my hand. He told me years later that he started talking to me and wanted to be my friend so badly because I was "different" from everyone else lmao

Edit: I feel like I should say I'm a girl before people start looking at my name and thinking he was into me or something. We're actually both gay. Life is funny.

Family Out Of Nowhwere

First day of kindergarten. Begged her daily to come over to my house to play/have dinner. Finally agreed to at the end of the school year. Been friends 30 years now. She was my maid of honour at my wedding, is probably my daughter's favourite "aunt". Oh, did I forget to mention she was my teacher in kindergarten? Now she's family.

Punches...Of Love

One of my best friends an I met at our first fight.

He thought I was someone else and punched me. Me not knowing what was going on, punched back.

We fought for about 3 min before someone stopped us and asked what was going on.

I answered "I dont know he hit me so I fought back."

He said "I thought you were someone else but then you hit me back and I saw you weren't him and panicked, so I just kept going."

It made me laugh so hard I was in tears.

We went and got some food, his treat, and that was 12 years ago.

Bonding Over Any Means

Made a suicide joke. He was severely offended by said suicide joke. We talked it out, I apologized, and he explained why he was offended.

Turns out we both work as suicide counselors and have very different ways of coping with the stress. We became great friends, are roommates, and got the opportunity to help a lot of people along the way, for which I am eternally grateful.

Formed In The Most Dire Of Circumstances

Shortly after graduating high school, I was at a party and chatting to someone who had gone to my high school, but I never really liked. She told me her parents had kicked her out and she was homeless.

I freaked out and insisted she come home with me. She lived at my house for a month and we quickly bonded.

Being a teacher is like being the mayor of a small village. You're in charge of a community of sorts, with its own customs and laws, and are forced to do whatever you can for the betterment of your citizens/students. Sometimes, that means you need to keep secrets for the easement of their minds, otherwise the entire structure could fall apart.

Relationships can be difficult, and a good relationship will always require some compromises.

Sometimes people change over time. If it gets to the point that all you're doing is compromising or excusing the other party's behavior, you've no longer got a relationship.

Breaking curfew. Skipping school. Speeding. Sneaking internet porn. We do stuff as kids we know will get us into trouble, and half the fun is talking our way out of it. Parents are always one step ahead...
