Each friendship is nuanced, made special by its history, secrets, and traditions. But this doesn’t mean you and your bestie can’t still learn a thing or two from famous TV friends to better your bond. Here are five on-screen friendships worth emulating:
THE ANN TO YOUR LESLIE – PARKS AND RECREATION
Leslie is famous for her quirky compliments about Ann ( I’ve been known to use land-mermaid à la Leslie), but this friendship wasn’t totally one-sided. You’d be hard pressed to find a more supportive, loving pair of pals on TV. Right from the get-go, they’re loyal, honest, and non-judgmental with each other. Take notes!
THE LANE TO YOUR RORY – GILMORE GIRLS
Rory and Lane’s friendship is proof that two women with completely different lives can still be best friends. Even from the start, Lane and Rory grew up in virtually opposite households and attended different high schools. By the end, Rory was a single, budding journalist and Lane was a married mother of two, pursuing a career in music. But their relationships remained. There’s some #inspo for you and your vina at different stages in life.
THE PEYTON TO YOUR BROOKE – ONE TREE HILL
Before you come at me, no, I did not forget the fighting, backstabbery and all-around pettiness by these two. But the important thing is that they prevailed. Not many real life friends can say their relationship has endured despite multiple love triangles, the death of a parent, a run-in with a vengeful stalker, and more. Although I’d never wish these trials upon you and your bestie, you can still admire their ability to forgive and forget.
THE JESS TO YOUR CECE – NEW GIRL
Some things change, but some things stay the same—the anthem of Jess and Cece’s relationship. The two have been friends since elementary school, and despite leading completely different lives, much like Rory and Lane, they remain inseparable. Even as a newlywed, Cece is sure to look out for Jess and include her in her new life, a task that’s not always easy to do. Whatever you’ve got going on in your life, you should always make time for your vinas.
CARRIE, MIRANDA, CHARLOTTE & SAMANTHA – SEX AND THE CITY
According to these women, they are more than best friends; in fact, they are soul mates. Even in the hustle and bustle of New York City, they remained constant priorities in one another’s lives. Whether it was a pregnant Miranda supporting Charlotte in her fertility struggles or Charlotte loaning Carrie money for an apartment, these four were always there. Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte, and Samantha serve as reminders that your friends come first. Always.
