Texas often gets a bad rep for one reason or another. But it’s not as bad as most people like to think, especially if your best friend's a certified Texan.
In fact, there are more than plenty of reasons why at least one of your BFs should be a Texan:
1. They’re bold and blunt.
And they come from a place of love. Texans always tell it like it is and you definitely need that in a best friend, especially when it comes to relationships.
If the person you're dating is messing with you, they'll be the ones to say it. If that shirt's not working out for you, they'll let you know. They won’t bullsh*t you because they wanna see the sun shine outta your *ss.
2. They get down.
Texans, especially those from Dallas and Houston, know how to party. And I'm sorry, but what better quality to have in a best friend? The type of parties they have are the ones we’re you’re not allowed to sit and be glued to your phone. You’ll literally be dancing and poppin' your *ss off.
3. They never run out of energy.
Texans have so much of it. Like, where is it all even coming from? Their energy's contagious even when your day's lookin' bleak. You can count on them to change the atmosphere with their refreshing personalities.
4. They’re always down to chill.
Sure they're energetic, but it doesn't mean they don’t take the time to chill and talk about life which is time never wasted.
5. They know good food when they see it.
Especially soulfood. If you’re not sure what the best place is to get some good fried chicken or mac n' cheese in the Northeast, they’ll let you know that there are actually none.
Ha, because none of them can compare to the soul food back home. But okay, they'll compromise and settle for something close to it.
6. Those accents, though.
It’s great to have a BF that actually takes their time when they speak. Texans have velvetty thick accents that aren’t hard to keep up with. Just don’t mimic them.
7. They talk about Texas. A lot. (Hint: be prepared.)
There will be days where they’ll talk crazy sh*t about Texas and days where they show off their mighty Texan pride. Either way, it’s pretty hilarious to watch the various stages they go through.
8. They've got a killer sense of humor.
It’s great to have a best friend who doesn't take themselves too seriously. Texans have a tongue in cheek kind of humor that will always have you laughing. Just as long you take it with a grain of salt.
9. They’ll be there for you.
Texans rarely bullsh*t you. Once they’re your bestie, they’re your bestie for life. If anything intense happens between you two, they’ll be the first to confront you about it, which helps you to grow thick skin and live a drama-free life.
