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.

At Least No One Was Hurt?

Car accident, my fault.

We have been friends for 15 years.

Never Doubt The Power Of Rainbows

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?

notalentnodirection

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.

Fam. Weighted blankets.

If you (or your kids - I see you, exhausted parents) struggle to stay asleep at night, weighted blankets might be a game changer for you. We got one for our 1-year-old after a week of her waking up at 4AM for baby jam sessions.

Best $31.99 we have ever spent. Ever.

As kids, we spent about 8 hours every day in school for 10 months of each year. Not surprisingly, a few useless lessons made their way into the curriculum.

Well, maybe more than a few.

Kids say some seriously whacky stuff sometimes, it can be disturbing, especially when they tend to discuss people who are not there. When the imagination is heading into "The Sixth Sense" territory, it may be time for a visit to the therapist. Now almost all of us had imaginary friends at one point in life. It is a very normal, common part of childhood. But much like the real friends in corporeal form we make in life, sometimes certain relationships are toxic and not a good influence. And separation is called for.

Redditor u/xX_ENTROPY_Xx wanted to hear about people's children's besties that they haven't laid eyes on by asking..... What's the scariest story you heard a child tell about their "imaginary friend"?

Be careful what you wish for, you just may get it. That is one of the wisdoms of life that people are always throwing around. It can be especially true when meeting your idols, finding your dream job and searching down blood relatives you knew nothing about. The DNA discovery craze has been all the rage the past decade or so. Everyone is running around contacting family they never knew they had. That can be quite the Pandora's box of family secrets and scandal.The outcomes have been all over the place. Though one of the best led to the discovery of the Golden State killer so that's a win.

Redditor u/VideoFork wanted to know who would be willing to give up some salacious tea about their blood tie discoveries by asking..... People who have taken an ancestry DNA test and accidentally uncovered a family secret, what was it?
