Best friends can come out of everywhere, anywhere, at any time. Unfortunately, this rule usually applies to kids more often than adults. It seems so much easier when you're younger. You can basically make a friend out of accident. Sometimes, it can last forever and then you can talk about it on the internet.


Reddit user, u/pijeN57, wanted to hear your best friend "meet-cute" when they asked:

What's the weird way you met one of your now best friends?

Best Aim

Giphy

I threw a rock. I wasn't aiming at him, but I hit him in the eye. The teacher made us sit together for the rest of recess.

He's a really nice guy.

A Rivalry Turned Partnership

We were both trying to get with the same girl.

Eventually started talking, became best friends, and completely forgot about the girl. We've been best friends for nearly a decade now.

We have been friends for 15 years.

I went to her birthday party in kindergarten.

Realized she had the same Rainbow Brite sheets as me and we instantly bonded over that. 30 years later and we are still best friends!

What more do you need to start a bromance?

Beans? Beans.

We're both 22 now and met in 6th grade.

During class, our teacher had asked "who here doesn't like beans?" and I raised my hand since...you know, I'm not a big fan. I was the only one in class to raise my hand. He told me years later that he started talking to me and wanted to be my friend so badly because I was "different" from everyone else lmao

Edit: I feel like I should say I'm a girl before people start looking at my name and thinking he was into me or something. We're actually both gay. Life is funny.

Family Out Of Nowhwere

First day of kindergarten. Begged her daily to come over to my house to play/have dinner. Finally agreed to at the end of the school year. Been friends 30 years now. She was my maid of honour at my wedding, is probably my daughter's favourite "aunt". Oh, did I forget to mention she was my teacher in kindergarten? Now she's family.

Punches...Of Love

One of my best friends an I met at our first fight.

He thought I was someone else and punched me. Me not knowing what was going on, punched back.

We fought for about 3 min before someone stopped us and asked what was going on.

I answered "I dont know he hit me so I fought back."

He said "I thought you were someone else but then you hit me back and I saw you weren't him and panicked, so I just kept going."

It made me laugh so hard I was in tears.

We went and got some food, his treat, and that was 12 years ago.

Bonding Over Any Means

Made a suicide joke. He was severely offended by said suicide joke. We talked it out, I apologized, and he explained why he was offended.

Turns out we both work as suicide counselors and have very different ways of coping with the stress. We became great friends, are roommates, and got the opportunity to help a lot of people along the way, for which I am eternally grateful.

Formed In The Most Dire Of Circumstances

Shortly after graduating high school, I was at a party and chatting to someone who had gone to my high school, but I never really liked. She told me her parents had kicked her out and she was homeless.

I freaked out and insisted she come home with me. She lived at my house for a month and we quickly bonded.

I don't see the appeal of these rooms.

Why would one enjoy being trapped in a room?

When you watch people trapped in a movie you cheer for their release.

But this activity has gotten super popular.

And people have gotten real creative in their escapes.

Redditor CaptainCatButt wanted to hear confessions from the great escapes. They asked:

"Escape Room employees, what's the weirdest way you've seen customers try and solve an escape room?"

Just because a therapist is there to expertly evaluate our emotional challenges throughout many of life's adversities and crises, it doesn't mean they always hold it together.

Much of the nation continues to reel from the news that a leaked draft opinion indicated the Supreme Court's ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization will move to strike down Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark decision that protects a person's right to choose reproductive healthcare without excessive government restriction.

Many people remember what it was like in the days before women could seek an abortion; many innocent women died in the absence of proper medical care or were forced to birth children they could not afford, trapping them in poverty.

But could a ruling overturning Roe v. Wade signal the loss of other rights in the future, especially those decided on the right to privacy, on which Roe was hinged?

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor thisiscubes asked the online community,

"Americans of Reddit, what are your thoughts on Roe v. Wade being overturned by SCOTUS as per draft reports?"
