Your best friend is your partner in crime. She’s the one you know will be the Thelma to your Louise, and the Butch Cassidy to your Sundance Kid. She’s your confidante, your ride-or-die, and the one who acts as an absorbent shoulder when that one guy breaks your heart.

You love her to pieces and are a good friend to her, but even if you’ve known her for years, you might not know everything about her.

The more you know about your best friend, the more you will love her. It helps you and can make a huge difference in the way you see one another. That’s just the way friendship goes!

Even if you’ve been friends since grade school, these conversation starters will give you something to talk about. And I’m willing to bet that these questions to ask your best friend will help you go deeper in your friendship.
