Aries Zodiac Friendship

You'll never regret being friends with an Aries. Ok, so sure they can be moody, impatient and short-tempered at times, but their redeeming qualities far out weigh the bad ones.

You'll never have to worry about what you look like because she won't care — she's the kind of friend that favors leggings and a baggy tee over a cute but uncomfortable outfit. And on the weekends she will totally be down for an all out binge fest of whatever T.V. show you want.

Aries also like to arrive first to any event. This will come in handy because you'll always be able to count on her to let you know if your ex showed up to your friend's birthday and more importantly who he is with. Don't worry ... she'll give it to you straight.

Nobody is perfect, but Aries sure come pretty close to being the perfect friend.

So go out and find yourself an Aries (f you don't already have one).

1. She’ll always tell you what she is thinking.

Sometimes the truth isn’t always easy to hear. Maybe you already know that you can’t pull of that trendy style of clothing or that you shouldn't be dating that guy because he's a total jerk (even though he's a hot jerk).

Whatever the deal is, she will always be there to give you the hard truth. No feelings spared. She keeps it real.

She doesn’t mean to offend you with her opinion — she is only telling you what no one else has the guts to say to your face. She will keep you from making mistakes that you’ll regret later. That’s what best friends are for. Right?

2. She puts passion in everything she does (and makes it look easy!)

Aries never half-asses anything, which is why she's so successful in life. She would much rather go over the top with weekend plans or a project at work instead of doing the bare minimum.

She's always incredibly passionate about her friends, so expect her to be cheering you on from the sidelines when she sees your awesome skills in action. Aries is the friend who reminds you that passion is a requirement for a happy, fulfilled life, which is why she's such a great person to look up to.

3. She will help you to see the bright side of every situation.

Aries are, “the glass is half-full” kind of people. They see the silver lining, the sunshine through the clouds and every rainbow around the corner.

She is the person you want to have around you when times get tough because she will be there to remind you everything will be OK. And most of the time she’ll be right ... but even when she’s not, you’ll still appreciate her optimism.

4. She has a crazy active social life (which means you do, too).

When she's not busting her buns at work, Aries is partying until the sun comes up. Her life motto is "Word Hard, Play Harder" and she sticks to it no matter what. She loves spending time with her best friends, too, so prepare to be her "plus one" all the time (it's a great way to make memories with her).

Aries doesn't mind opting to stay in with friends instead of hitting up her favorite party places, but only if you have something fun planned. She's not going to waste her Friday night being bored when she could be living it up (with you, of course).

5. She likes to see things through.

If there’s one thing Aries are not, it’s quitters. She will be the most determined person you will ever meet. You can bet on that.

She’s the friend you call after purchasing all your furniture from Ikea. Trying to figure out which piece goes where would drive anyone else crazy, but not her. Her work won’t be done until your house looks like a home (furniture included).

6. Her confidence will inspire you.

It’s so easy to get down on yourself about what you look like today. It may seem to you that every other girl in the world is blessed with perfect skin, abs, and an hourglass figure. But an Aries knows that she is dazzlingly beautiful, flaws and all.

7. She invests her time in the people and things she loves.

Aries can be passionate about anything and everything. Dogs, ice cream, cotton sheets, dark chocolate, Knitting, TJ Maxx, Crafting and Rom Coms. She will invest her heart and soul into everything she loves.

You might get whiplash from her constantly finding new things to be passionate about, but there is a huge upside. Maybe one week she's passionate about baking and the next it's pottery making. Whatever she finds that interests her, you can be sure that she will share her creations with you.

8. Her optimism is contagious.

Aries always has a positive outlook on life because she knows things can only get better from here. She works so hard to be the BAMF she is, so of course she knows her future is going to be bright.

She wants her friends to be as idealistic about the future as she is, so while it feels like she's always pushing you to get out of your comfort zone, what she's really doing is encouraging you to take control of your life.

9. She will take charge when you don't want to.

Aries love any leadership role they can get. She loves being in charge and taking charge. So she will have no problem with helping you out when you're feeling overwhelmed.

Moving? No problem. Just gather up a team of friends and family and she will direct them where to go and assign jobs to them. She can help make life easier for you.

10. She likes to live on the edge.

Danger is an Aries middle name. So you want to go try skydiving, bungee jumping off a bridge or swimming with sharks? Well she's the gal that will be game to do all!

Aries are incredibly courageous. They have an adventurous and wild spirit. Nothing scares them. This means that she will be up for just about anything you want to try. Everyday is a new adventure for her.

11. She's a big ball of love.

Aries has more than enough love to go around and she spreads it around generously. Whether she's doing something special for her significant other, planning a surprise for her best friend, or helping out her family, Aries always does it with love.

Aries believes in love because she knows how important it is to show the people in her life how much she appreciates them. Even in the smallest situations, Aries goes big.

12. She lives in the moment.

Some people call it being impulsive, she calls it, living in the moment. Aries hate the thought of waking up one day and regretting not buying that pair of shoes, going to that concert in California last minute, kissing that boy at the bar, or quitting a job and moving somewhere far away.

Their motto is life is too short to not do what you want to.

She won't make you follow her lead, but you'll sure wish you could live as freely as her. She'll teach you all about really living. You won't ever regret being friends with her.
