What is the Best Friend Rule? No matter how many arguments or disagreements you have, they are there for you through it all. Even better, they're there for with copious amounts of junk food, love and advice. Whenever you argue with your parents or partner, they have your back and know just what to say to make it all better. Whether you live round the corner from your best friend, or on the other side of the world, we want to know what the secret is to maintaining a healthy and close friendship.

What Is The Best Friend Rule?

There are many different rules to many different people on what constitutes a great friendship. For some, it's being able to call their friend at 4am when they can't sleep. For others, it's being there at all the important events. Whatever it is that's important to you, it's important to them, and perhaps that's the key to maintaining a good friendship. We might disagree over little things, let each other down sometimes and not be there at the exact moment we're needed, but we always know how to make it up. We always understand. And it's that understanding that keeps us closer than ever.

Whether you live far away from your best friend, or are next-door neighbours; it doesn't make a difference to how close your friendship is. One of my best friends for example lives in London, and I know that whenever I have a problem, I can message her and she calms down all my irrational fears. The greatest tip I could give to you on any friendship is to never let distance come between you. If your best friend lives just around the corner, remember how lucky you are. If not, just remember, he or she is only ever one call away.

Celebrity Best Friend Advice

Celebrities feature in the public eye all the time and are constantly prone to gossip and allegations. Maintaining a friendship is therefore absolutely essential to leading a relatively normal life, staying grounded and having a shoulder to cry on. Here are some of our favourite celebs talking about their friendships and what they mean to them...

"We come from homes far from perfect, so you end up almost parent and sibling to your friends – your own chosen family. There’s nothing like a really loyal, dependable, good friend. Nothing."

Our Celebrity Best Friend Crush

We have been trying to get into Taylor Swift's Squad for some time now, and with no luck. However, we have got our own best friend teams and we wouldn't exchange those for the world. We can still admire their friendships though, and one of our favourites is between Taylor and Selena - these guys are just too cute!

"She's so trustworthy, never judges you and knows how to listen. We've been friends for four years and she has been through so much with me that I can say we're almost sisters." - Newsday.
