Everyone needs an easy friend. An easy friend is what you would expect (if your mind is in the gutter go ahead step out of that filth). Easy friends are the one who doesn’t try to make feel guilty, manipulate you, take advantage of you, or be in some kind of childish competition with you. Friendship can be hard enough in life without having one or both parties making it hard on the other person.
Easy friends are the one who can go months without hearing from you and when they do everything picks right back up on the positive note it left off on without missing a beat. They are the ones you look forward to speaking with. When your phone lights up with an incoming call and it’s their name that pops up, you rarely send them to voice mail.
Easy friends don’t hang on to every word and store it in their mental locker to analyze it later to find out “what you really meant”. They don’t look for an underlying message or some kind of ulterior motive.
Easy friends let you speak your mind and give your opinion without any backlash. You don’t have to worry about walking on eggshells around them because they aren’t easily offended. The have the ability to laugh at themselves and exercise it often. Their level of ego is almost nonexistent but they still seem to have an unwavering confidence.
Easy friends are easy to forgive. If you really screwed up and you attempt to apologize, they won’t even let you finish.
Some of the luckiest people on earth are the ones who have married an easy friend and now they are an easy spouse.
