I turned to a friend for comfort, and instead I found everything that I’ve ever been looking for my whole life. And now, here we are, with our future before us, and I only want to spend it with you; my prince, my soulmate, my friend.
“I thought this was going to be the most difficult thing I had to do, but when I saw you walking down the aisle I realized how simple it was. I love you. Any surprises that come our way, it’s okay, because I will always love you. You are the person I was meant to spend the rest of my life with.
the best part about friends is that it had the most iconic twist in romance ever like in the beginning seasons they really played us with the ross/rachel dynamic and how they were the absolute “it” couple of the show and that everyone will want to root for them to get together and then all the sudden???? chandler and monica literally come out of nowhere in a span of three episodes?? but the best part is,,,,,,,they actually have a great dynamic?? like they had a great dynamic as friends but as a couple,,,,,they brought out the absolute best in each other??? And they grew slowly and worked through both of their insecurities and became an even stronger couple?? and then the writers tried to bring back rachel/ross again and it just,,,,,,didn’t compare because chandler and monica had surpassed their trash dynamic by 1000x at that point. anyway, god bless chandler and monica
I think growth is when you grow up admiring the relationship Ross and Rachel have, but when you actually fall in love, you’d rather have something like Monica and Chandler. You don’t want to chase someone for 10 years, you don’t want to be destined, you don’t want to be “someone’s lobster.” You want to meet someone and become their friend and you unexpectedly fall for them before you even fully realize that you have. You want to fall in love with your best friend, and someone that was an outcast just like you were. Someone that understands you on every level and loves you and sacrifices for you without a second thought. You don’t want some strung out puppy love that lingered on for 15 years. You don’t want obsession. You want security with your best friend and you want people to think you’re crazy. You want to prove them wrong when they say you won’t make it.
