How to Describe Your Friend in English?
How do you describe your best friend in English?
You’ve known this person for so long but when someone asks you — maybe the IELTS examiner — you don’t know where to begin. It seems like an impossible task.
But in fact, it is a very simple thing to do. As with anything else you need to break it down into smaller parts. When you look at that great big mountain in front of you and you think to yourself I’ll never get to the top of that, it’s just too high and too far.
Well, of course, you can’t get to the top in one big step. You need to get to the top of the mountain using many small steps. And all of those small steps add up and then after some time, you find yourself way up high on top of the mountain. You did it! You got there!
And that is how you should attempt all your English skills. You just have to break them down into smaller parts and then you can accomplish anything.
Talking about your friend is easy. You know this person very well and you know everything about them. Just don’t talk about every detail at the same time.
Get organised and introduce your friend in smaller sections. Then it makes sense to the listener and they can follow what you are saying and understand you.
Are you ready?
Let’s get into it!

What Does Your Friend Look Like?
The first thing you can talk about is their physical appearance. What they look like.
And even with this part, you need to break it down into smaller parts. I wrote a guide on how to describe someone’s physical appearance here — feel free to take a look.
But we will do some quick practice here and now.
Remember the order when describing someone’s physical appearance:
The Body — h eight and build
The Head — hair colour and main features of their face; good-looking? Handsome? Pretty?
The Face — eyes, nose, mouth, complexion. Facial hair if they have any!
Body Language — what are their common gestures? What do they always do with their hands or eyes?
The Clothing — what do they usually wear?
I am not saying this is the only way to describe someone’s physical appearance; I am just saying this is a system I would use. I think it works very well — but if you have other things to add by all means add them. And if you have anything useful to add, please tell me in the comments below.
But let’s take the above system as something we can work with. How do we begin?

Height and Build
So you can describe your friend’s body. No need to go into too much detail here. We don’t need to know exactly how tall they are or their weight.
It would be a little strange to say the following:
My friend is 178cm tall, and he weighs 83.5 kilos.
We don’t need to know that. You could say:
My friend is about average height, maybe the same height as me. And he is a little overweight.
That is enough information to describe your friend’s body.
Other examples are:
My friend is very tall, and she has a beautiful figure.
My best friend is of average height, but he is very muscular as he plays a lot of sport every day.
My friend is a little short, but he has an athletic body because he is always running.
My friend is a bit fat but very tall.
After describing your friend’s height and body shape you can move to his or her head and face.
The first thing you can talk about is their hair.
Hair can be many different colours — black, brown, light brown, dark brown, blonde or red.
It can also be many different styles — short, long, shoulder-length, curly, wavy or straight.
So you could say:
My friend has long beautiful hair, really wavy, and it is a dark brown colour.
My friend’s hair is very short and black.
My friend has curly red hair.
Good-looking, Handsome, Beautiful, Pretty?
You can then give a general description of your friend’s face using one of the above words.
He is quite handsome.
She is very pretty.
He is a good-looking dude.
She is so beautiful.
Be nice! This is your friend you are talking about!
Eyes, Nose, Mouth, Complexion
Now you can go into more details.
When we talk about the eyes, we can say the following:
My friend has deep-set, dark-brown eyes.
She has green eyes, very clear and bright.
He has blue eyes.
She has brown eyes.
For the nose, we can say someone has a big nose, a small nose or a long nose. That is about it for noses.
Then for the mouth, we can say a big mouth or a small mouth.
Sometimes people have a very wide mouth but it may be unkind to say that — instead you can say:
She has a really big beautiful smile.
That sounds much nicer!
And then you can talk about their skin complexion. Complexion can be dark or pale.
If your friend is black or white or brown, you can say that. It helps us to know what your friend looks like.
What does your friend do with his or her hands? Do they have special gestures that only they do? You can talk about that too.
So you can say:
My friend always scratches his head when the teacher asks him a question.
My friend often looks up when she is trying to tell me something.
He always shrugs his shoulders and shakes his head.
She tilts her head to the side when she is trying to remember something.
And then you can give a description of the clothes they wear. If you and your friend are at school, then you probably wear school uniform but you can describe his or her shoes.
She wears these really cool Adidas sports shoes.
He has these great Nike shoes. I think they were quite expensive.
Putting It All Together
So let’s put all of these things together and look at a few examples.
My friend is quite tall and kind of athletic because she is good at sport. She has long black hair and has big eyes. Her eyes are dark brown. She has a small nose and a small mouth too.
She walks in a very elegant way and her gestures are always very refined and slow. She also wears very nice clothes so I think she gives a good impression to people that meet her.
My friend is a little overweight, but he is very strong because he likes to go to the gym. He has short blonde hair and blue eyes. He is always smiling and has a big smile for the world to see.
He sometimes rubs his chin when listening to people. He likes to wear sports clothes.
Why don’t you try?
Describe your friend using the above ways to talk about someone’s appearance.
What about your friend’s personality?
These are the main personality words to use in English:
There are many other ways to talk about your friend’s personality but I think the best way is through telling stories. I wrote an article about this here — please take a look.
But when talking about your friend’s personality you can say his or her personality type — and then provide more details to show their personality type.
I mean like this:
My friend is very shy. So if the teacher asks him a question he finds it difficult to answer and his voice is very quiet. His face turns red and I can see he looks very uncomfortable.
In this example, the speaker shows how their friend is shy by giving a very clear example. Little stories like this can really help you describe the personality of your friend.
Let’s look at another example:
My friend is a very quiet person. She doesn’t like to go to parties, and she prefers to stay indoors and reading. She once told me that her favourite place is the library because it is very quiet and she can just sit down and read all day. I like reading too, but not as much as my friend.
Again, in this example, the speaker shows us how her friend is a quiet person who likes to read. She tells us a little anecdote about her friend going to the library and from that, we can determine that her friend is indeed a very quiet person.
She also makes a comparison between herself and her friend about who likes to read more. This is also very helpful.
How about describing your friend who is confident?
I have a friend who is a very confident person. She is always the first to volunteer for class activities and she has no problem in standing at the front of the class and doing a presentation. I think this could help her in the future.
Can you see how the speaker shows us how confident her friend is by telling us a little story of her friend? You can do the same as this. This is the best way to describe your friend’s personality.
What about a happy and cheerful friend?
My friend is always in a good mood. Every time I see him he is happy and has a big smile on his face. Even when we have lots of homework to do he is smiling. He just says that we have to do and we have no choice. I wish I could be like him.
Telling stories about your friend is the best way to describe their personality.
Give it a try now by yourself. Think of different stories you can tell of different friends to describe their personalities.
How did you meet this friend?
This is something that many English students forget to talk about when describing their friend.
But it is one of the best things you can talk about because quite often there could be a great story behind how you both met.
Things you need to think about for this story
Where — where did you meet? What was the location?
When — when did you meet? Was it in the morning or the evening? Was it at the beginning of a new school year?
How — how did you meet? What was the situation that made you meet each other?
What — what did you say to each other? What was the first thing you spoke about?
Who — who spoke first? Was it you or your friend?
Why — why did you stay in contact with each other after the first meeting? What did you like about this person that made you want to become friends with them for a long time?
Use the above system of questions to create a story of how you met your friend. Then put it all together and practice saying it out loud.
But let me give you an example so you can see how it might work.
I met my best friend Steve at school. We were put in the same class together and we were sitting at the same desk. It was the first day of school and we were both new students — everyone was new — so no one knew each other.
Steve sat next to me because the teacher told him to sit down quickly and the nearest seat was next to me.
The class began, and the teacher asked us to write something in our notebooks. We were writing something then Steve looked at me.
He didn’t know how to spell a word in English. I did, so I helped him.
After the first class, we sat together in the next class. Then it got to lunchtime, and we didn’t know where to go. These other students told us where to go and we went to the canteen together.
We found out that we were both big football fans so we had lots to talk about then.
Since then we have become best friends.
Now you try!
What Things Do You Do Together?
This should be very easy for you. You just describe all the things you like to do together. That could be all your interests. Plus any studying you might do together.
At the weekend what do you like to do together?
Go to see a movie?
Watch a game of sport?
Think about all the activities you do together and talk about those. This provides a very clear description of your friend as you are still talking about this person.
Plus, there are also some stories you can talk about in this part.
Let’s try some examples.
My friend and I are both really crazy about football so at lunchtime at school you can always find us playing football in the playground. At the weekend, we play football in the stadium near where we live. We play in a big team and we have a great coach who teaches us some special football skills.
And of course, we watch football matches. Usually on TV, but sometimes we are lucky to go to a real game. It’s very exciting to see all the spectators cheering the players on.
Me and my friend both love shopping. So every weekend that is what we do. There are two big shopping malls near where we live and we like to go there and just browse around all the shops.
We don’t always buy something — we are not rich! — but we like to look around and see what the latest fashions are. Plus, going to the shopping mall is a great place for people watching. You can see what other girls our age are wearing.
After walking around looking in all the shops we like to sit down and drink some coffee. It’s very relaxing.
Me and my friend James both love tropical fish. I have a tank in my house and James has one in his house too. We love to read up on all the important information on looking after tropical fish. We just think it’s interesting.
There’s a tropical fish shop near where we live and we like to go to this place and check out all the fish and the tanks. They just look amazing.
I hope you can see that to talk about your interests and the things you like to do with your friend is very simple.
You just say what the interest is, where and when you do this thing, and why you like to do it.
Try now — write down a few sentences about the things you like to do with your friend.
What do you like about your friend?
This is your friend you are talking about. There must be plenty of things you like about this person.
Avoid saying simple things like:
He is honest
She is kind
He is very clever
She is interesting
These things don’t really say anything about why you like your friend. They are bland and uninteresting.
Again, like with the other things that you say about your friend, you can use stories.
Let’s look at an example.
I like my friend because he is funny.
One time we were in class and the teacher asked if anyone knew anything about frogs. My friend told us a story about when he went to the park and saw some frogs in the pond. He tried to catch one but fell in the water. He then tried to dry his clothes before getting home by standing in the middle of the park with his arms and legs open wide. He thought the wind would dry his clothes in time but it didn’t work.
It was the way he told us the story that made us all laugh out loud. Even the teacher was laughing.
Or something like this:
I like my friend because he is always trying to help me.
I am not very good at maths and so my friend helps me work out all the maths problems. Whenever we get maths homework, I go to his house and he shows me how to do it.
I think this is very kind of him. He is being very generous with his time.
Why do you like your friend?
What are the qualities you like about your friend?
How does your friend make a difference in your life?
Think about these things and tell the story.
What do you dislike about your friend?
As there are things we like about our friends, there are also things we dislike about them too.
There should not be many things we dislike about them, but certainly, one or two things that get on our nerves at times.
Sometimes my friend bites his nails.
I can’t stand it when he does this because it looks so dirty.
My friend sometimes sends me a message late at night. It really disturbs me but she thinks it is very important.
My friend smokes too much. I think this is really harmful to his health, but he doesn’t listen to me.
You don’t need to go into too much detail about the things you dislike about your friend. But if you can say just one thing that you dislike it provides balance. In the IELTS test, the examiner like to hear opposing views of one thing, so this is helpful to you.
If you follow all the steps, you should be able to create a great description of your friend.
Just remember to follow the system I laid out in this guide.
Personality + Story
How did you meet your friend?
What things do you like to do together?
This is just a system I created, it is not the only way to do it.

How to Write a Descriptive Paragraph About a Person (With Examples)
- 7th January 2023
Describing a person or character is difficult for even the most successful authors. It requires a balance of words to make sure they shine through without the language being too heavy. In this article, we’ll look at how to write a descriptive paragraph about a person, share some examples, and talk about different strategies.
1. Brainstorm Your Ideas
Brainstorming is crucial to any writing process. It’s the process in which you think of ideas for what you’d like to write about. In this case, you’re writing a descriptive paragraph about a person. It’s important to use adjectives to describe the features or characteristics you want to focus on.
One way to come up with ideas for a descriptive paragraph about a person is to go through the five senses. Use the questions below to get some ideas for what you want to highlight about your person.
Appeal to your reader’s senses – smell, taste, sound, sight, and touch
Smell: How does the person smell? Do they wear perfume? Are they doing an activity that would make them have a certain smell?
Taste: Do you associate a certain food with this person? Does it make you think of a specific taste? Can you taste something due to a certain smell they have?
Sound: Do they have a unique voice or laugh? Are they doing an activity that has distinctive sounds?
Sight: What prominent features do they have? For example, think about their dressing style, their smile, or their surroundings. What do you see them doing in your mind when you see a photo of them? What memories do you have of this person? Does this person remind you of something or someone?
Touch: What textures do you see? For example, imagine their skin or clothing. How does it feel if you hug them?
2. Begin With a Short and Snappy Sentence
Like with any type of writing, you want to hook your reader so that they want to continue reading. In this case, you can use a topic sentence, if appropriate, to introduce your reader to the person. For example:
Or, if you want to be more creative, you can reel them in with a short and snappy sentence about this person. This is called a writing hook . This sentence should focus on a stand-out detail or characteristic about the person you’re describing. For example:
3. Describe the Person
Now, this is the hard part. But, if you’ve brainstormed plenty of ideas and know which ones you want to focus on, it will be easier. Let’s look at some examples to get a better idea of how to write a descriptive paragraph about a person using the prompt “describe a person you admire.”
Comments: This paragraph is pretty typical of most students. It gives lots of visual details of the person and uses a simile or two (“ Her eyes are like the color of honey” and “Her smile shines like the sun” ). While this strategy gets the job done, it’s not very exciting to read. In fact, it can be quite boring!
Let’s look at how we can rewrite this to make it more exciting.

Comments: In this example, we focused on one defining characteristic of the person we are describing — her laugh. This strategy places more focus on the person you’re describing, rather than the adjectives you use to describe them.
4. Edit and Revise
After you write your descriptive paragraph, be sure to read it over. Read it out loud. Read it in a funny voice. Doing this will help you to hear the words and identify which parts do not work or sound awkward.
5. General Tips for Descriptive Writing
● Avoid using too many descriptive words.
● Remember to show the reader, not tell.
● Appeal to the reader’s five senses – smell, touch, taste, sight, and sound.
● Focus on a striking or defining characteristic.
● Use contrasting details from other people or surroundings for emphasis.
● Use literary devices (metaphors, similes etc.) sparingly and with intention.
● Use a hook to reel your reader in.
● Use a variety of short and long sentences.
● Practice creative writing exercises to improve your descriptive writing skills.
● Always edit and revise your writing.

How To Write a My Best Friend Essay
Definition: What Is a My Best Friend Essay?
Write about what you know is sage advice often given to fledgling writers. And what do many of our young students know more about than their trusty sidekick, who is a constant presence through thick and thin?
A My Best Friend Essay is precisely what it sounds like; an essay the student writes that is focused on their closest pal’s endearing attributes (and otherwise).
However, the My Best Friend Essay is more than just a chance for students to wax lyrical about their BFFs. It is an authentic opportunity for students to hone their composition skills and exercise their creative flair.
All this while talking about one of their best mate – not bad!
STRUCTURING a My Best Friend Essay
This is an essay. It says so right there in the title! Just how complex the structure of a student’s essay is will depend on essential factors such as age and ability. However, the 5-paragraph essay structure is a perfect framework for this type of composition.
One of the most beautiful aspects of the 5-paragraph essay is that it is easily modified to differentiate between lower or higher ability students by simply adjusting the number of paragraphs. The essay will still contain the same essential elements of an introduction, a body, and a conclusion, regardless of how long it is.
The 5-paragraph (or hamburger) essay is a craft in itself and much too broad a topic to go into at length. Check out our complete guide here if you want more detail on this handy essay template.
Briefly though, in essence, the 5-paragraph essay comprises three parts:
- The Introduction : The opening paragraph will orient the reader to the topic of the essay, in this case, by introducing the show’s star, the best friend .
- The Body : In the traditional 5-paragraph essay, this makes up three of the five paragraphs. In this type of essay, the student will use these paragraphs to flesh out the main reasons they value their friend, or (at a more advanced level) they will tell a story about them that illustrates why they are the student’s best friend.
- The Conclusion : In the conclusion, the student can sum up why their friend holds the hallowed title of ‘best’. Or, at a higher level, the student can use the final paragraph of their essay to look forward to the future of their relationship with their best friend.

Our FUN DAILY QUICK WRITE TASKS will teach your students the fundamentals of CREATIVE WRITING across all text types. Packed with 52 ENGAGING ACTIVITIES
My Best Friend Essay Story
While we are teaching a short essay on my best friend’, it can also be approached from another angle, i.e., as a nonfiction story.
While the clearcut essay format may be eminently suitable for younger students, you may wish to revisit this genre with older students, this time emphasising storytelling.
In this creative nonfiction approach, students can merge the essay format with storytelling elements such as character, setting, central conflict, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution.
Constructing their best friend composition in this manner allows students to work on structuring a nonfiction text. Simultaneously, it offers them a chance to develop their creative flair.
My Best Friend in 10 Lines
Another approach particularly well-suited to younger students is the my best friend essay 10 lines format.
This helps younger students get writing by giving them a clear target to aim for, which makes planning easy.
However, you can still introduce the three elements of the 5-paragraph essay here. As students list the points they want to make in their 10 lines, they can be encouraged to group these into introduction, body, and conclusion sections.
For example, a plan might look like this:
A ‘My Best Friend in 10 Lines’ Plan
Line 1: My friend’s name.
Line 2: What she looks like.
Line 3: Where she is from/her family.
Line 4: What friendship means to me.
Line 5: How we met.
Line 6: The kindest thing she has ever done.
Line 7: The funniest thing she has ever done.
Line 8: My absolute favorite thing about her.
Line 9: Restate why she is my best friend.
Line 10: How I see our future together.
To complete their 10-line ode to their friend, the student simply builds proper sentences around each of these (or similar) ideas.
More on Planning a My Best Friend Composition
As we can see in the sample plan above, the planning process is relatively straightforward when the 5-paragraph essay structure serves as a framework. However, we may want to take things up a notch for students of a higher ability.
A good, old-fashioned brainstorming session is an excellent starting point for the student. They can list their favorite memories and their friend’s best features.
While younger students may inevitably write something of a hagiography (a biography of a saint!), older students may want to present a more realistic portrait of their ever-present amigo.
Likewise, if the student is undertaking their composition in a narrative nonfiction form, they’ll need to map out the narrative arc of their story at the planning stage.
As with any story, the conflict will serve as the engine of the narrative. However, this conflict does not have to take the form of a problem between the writer and the best friend. After all, this text is more likely to be something of a love letter than a letter of complaint. Instead, the conflict is more likely to take the form of a problem or a challenge faced by the writer and their pal together.
Whether or not the student’s text will take a full-blown story form, true-to-life anecdotes will bring life to the student’s writing. The planning process is the perfect time to dump these onto paper, even if they don’t all make it into the final draft.
How to Start a MY Best Friend Essay
As with most text types, fiction or nonfiction, the writer will want to grab the reader’s attention from the outset. An effective way of doing this is by using a hook.
How to Hook The Reader
The student writer has many methods available to grasp the reader’s attention. While some of these will only be suitable for more advanced students, most can be adapted with a bit of effort for our younger writers.
- Start in the Middle of the Action
Technically known as, In Medias Res , this technique involves opening the story in the middle of a moment of dramatic tension with the exposition filled in later. This type of wizardry is probably best reserved for the more skilled student writer.
- Make a Bold Promise at the Outset
The promise of a big payoff can undoubtedly catch a reader’s eye and draw them in, but the student-writer must follow through later in the text. For less experienced students, you may want to offer a writing prompt to help out here. For example,
My best friend Jack is truly one of a kind, but just how special he is wasn’t clear to me until the day a fire broke out in our school.
Students can quickly adapt such prompts by changing the event mentioned to their own circumstances.
- Create a Sense of Intimacy
Another way to grasp the reader’s interest is to create a sense of intimacy right from the start. This can be achieved by addressing the reader directly in a conversational tone. Students should use informal language and approach writing their text as if they were speaking to a close friend – this is perfect for this writing style.
- Open with an Anecdote
Another way to create interest (and a sense of intimacy) is to open up with an interesting anecdote about the friend. Students can select an interesting or humorous story to use as a carrot to entice the reader in. The student could substitute an exciting or amusing fact in shorter pieces for a full-blown anecdote.
- Begin with a Quotation
Quotes are a great way to garner attention. There are many online repositories of inspirational quotes on every topic under the sun where students can find a golden nugget of friendship-based wisdom to open their masterpieces. They must simply type in keywords such as ‘famous’, ‘quotes’, and ‘friendship’ to uncover a smorgasbord of well-articulated wisdom for students to choose from. However, students should ensure the sentiment expressed in their selected quote ties into the type of friendship described in their work.
Working the Body
As we stated earlier in this article, the 5-paragraph essay structure, or the narrative writing arc, lays out a suitable template for the student-writer to work their way through the body of their text. However, it’s worth pointing out five areas where a little attention can significantly impact.
- Get Specific
The devil’s in the details. The more specific the student is in their writing, the more effectively they will communicate with the reader.
Encourage students to be as precise as possible in their descriptions. A thesaurus is an excellent tool to help students find just the right word for the job.
- Vary Sentence Length
Often, emergent writers rely on the same couple of simple sentence structures in their writing. This soon makes the writing monotonous for the reader; if they continue to read, it is only with effort that they will finish the student’s work.
Variety is not only the spice of life but also the spice of good writing. Encourage students to vary their sentence structures and alternate between long and short sentences to diversify the rhythm of their writing and evoke interest on the reader’s part.
- Use Dialogue
Weaving dialogue into a my best friend essay text is a great way to bring colour and variety to a student’s writing. It also allows the student to practice punctuating dialogue – an essential skill!
Students will need to learn to listen carefully if they are to be able to write how people actually speak. Encouraging them to read their dialogue aloud is an effective way to check if it rings true.
- Incorporate Literary Devices
Though this is undoubtedly a nonfiction text, it has firm roots in creative writing too. Students should incorporate some of the literary techniques and devices that we’d more commonly associate with poetry and fiction writing to add colour, creativity, and imagination to their writing.
For example, for younger students, physical descriptions of their BFF provide the perfect opportunity to introduce similes and hyperbole. Don’t be afraid to get comical here; writing should be fun, after all.
Does their friend have a big nose? How big? As big as an elephant’s trunk, perhaps?
Just make sure students avoid being too mean or poking fun at areas too sensitive for their friends.
It is easy to differentiate different abilities by challenging stronger students to use more complex literary devices in their work. Zoomorphism anyone?
- Evoke the Five Senses
Emergent writers often display a bias towards only using the sense of sight in their descriptions. To bring their writing up a notch, encourage your students to employ all five senses in their writing.
By evoking the sense of hearing, smell, taste, and touch in their work, students will help their writing to come alive in the reader’s imagination.
WRAPPING THINGS Up
In a regular 5-paragraph essay, the concluding paragraph is usually the time to summarize the main arguments and drive home the thesis statement one more time. Obviously, things are a little bit different in a “my best friend essay.”
Of course, students can take the opportunity to revisit and restate the main reasons why their best friend holds the best-friend-championship belt. Still, there is a more artistic way to use their composition’s final paragraph.
Ask students to think about their friendship and where they see it in five, ten, twenty, or even forty years.
Undoubtedly, for younger students, in particular, this may be a bit of a challenge, but it can be a fun thought experiment too. Students can pose themselves questions to help, such as:
- Will we be neighbours?
- Will we work together?
- Will our children go to school together? Etc.
Taking a tentative step into the possibilities of the future can make for an impactful ending.

Tips On Writing A Paragraph On My Best Friend
Introduce your best friend: Start by introducing your best friend and providing some basic information about them, such as their name and how long you’ve known each other. For example, “My best friend, Sarah, has been by my side for over a decade, and our friendship has only grown stronger with time.”
Highlight their qualities and characteristics: Describe the qualities and characteristics that make your best friend special. Focus on their positive traits, such as their kindness, loyalty, sense of humor, or empathy. Provide examples or anecdotes to illustrate these qualities. For instance, “Sarah is the epitome of kindness, always going out of her way to help others. I remember when she spent hours organizing a surprise birthday party for me, ensuring every detail was perfect.”
Share memorable experiences: Recall some memorable experiences or adventures you’ve shared with your best friend. Describe the fun, laughter, or meaningful moments you’ve experienced together. This helps to showcase the bond and connection you have. For example, “From road trips to late-night conversations, Sarah and I have shared countless adventures. One of my favorite memories is when we hiked to the top of a mountain and watched the sunrise, celebrating the beauty of nature and our friendship.”
Express gratitude and appreciation: Take a moment to express your gratitude and appreciation for your best friend. Share how they have positively impacted your life and why they are important to you. This adds depth and emotion to your paragraph. For instance, “I am incredibly grateful to have Sarah in my life. Her unwavering support and belief in me have given me the strength to overcome challenges and pursue my dreams. I am forever thankful for her presence.”
Conclude with a reflection: Wrap up your paragraph by reflecting on the significance of your best friend in your life. Summarize the qualities, experiences, and emotions you’ve mentioned and state what makes them truly special. This leaves a lasting impression on the reader. For example, “In conclusion, Sarah is not just my best friend; she is my confidant, my cheerleader, and my partner in crime. Her genuine care, infectious laughter, and unwavering support make her an irreplaceable presence in my life.”
My best friend, Emily, is the epitome of warmth and compassion. From the moment we first met, her genuine smile and kind heart drew me in. Whether it’s lending a listening ear during tough times or celebrating the joys of life together, Emily’s unwavering support has been a constant source of comfort. Her ability to empathize and offer sage advice never fails to amaze me. With Emily by my side, I know I have a friend for life who will always be there to brighten my days.
When I think of my best friend, Alex, the first word that comes to mind is “adventurous.” From spontaneous road trips to exploring new hobbies, Alex is always up for a thrilling experience. Their infectious enthusiasm and zest for life inspire me to step out of my comfort zone and embrace the unknown. With Alex, every day is an opportunity for an exciting adventure, and I’m grateful to have a friend who continually pushes me to embrace life to the fullest.
Sarah, my best friend since childhood, is a constant reminder of the power of laughter and joy. Her infectious laughter has the ability to light up any room and bring a smile to even the gloomiest of days. Sarah’s sense of humor is unmatched, and our countless inside jokes have created a bond that cannot be broken. With her by my side, life’s challenges seem more manageable, and every moment becomes an opportunity for shared laughter and happiness.
In a world where true authenticity is often hard to find, my best friend, Michael, stands out as a beacon of genuineness. His unwavering loyalty and honesty have been the foundation of our friendship. I know I can always count on Michael to speak the truth, even when it’s difficult. His ability to be authentic and vulnerable has created a safe space where we can share our deepest fears and dreams without judgment. Having Michael as my best friend is a true gift.
My best friend, Olivia, possesses a unique blend of creativity and compassion that sets her apart. Her artistic talents bring life and beauty to everything she touches. From painting breathtaking landscapes to writing heartfelt poetry, Olivia’s creativity knows no bounds. But what truly sets her apart is her ability to use her talents to uplift others. Olivia’s art is a reflection of her kind and empathetic soul, and I am constantly inspired by her ability to create beauty in the world.
When it comes to resilience and determination, no one compares to my best friend, Jason. Through life’s ups and downs, Jason has shown an unwavering strength that I deeply admire. He faces challenges head-on with a tenacity that is truly remarkable. Jason’s ability to overcome obstacles and rise above adversity has taught me the importance of perseverance and has inspired me to push through my own struggles. With Jason by my side, I know that together we can conquer anything.
My best friend, Lily, has a heart as big as the ocean. She possesses a rare combination of compassion and empathy that makes her a natural caregiver. Lily’s ability to truly listen and understand others’ emotions creates a safe space for vulnerability and healing. Her kindness knows no bounds, and she consistently goes above and beyond to help those in need. Lily’s unwavering support and nurturing nature make her not just a best friend but a true guardian angel in my life.
From the moment I met my best friend, Ethan, I knew we shared an unspoken bond. Our connection goes beyond words; it’s a deep understanding that transcends explanation. Ethan is the person who knows me better than I know myself. He can read my thoughts with a single glance and provides unwavering support even when I struggle to express my own needs. With Ethan, I feel seen and understood, and I am grateful every day for this extraordinary friendship.
Sophia, my best friend and partner in crime, brings a vibrant energy and sense of adventure into my life. Together, we’ve tackled countless escapades, turning the ordinary into extraordinary. Whether it’s exploring hidden corners of our city or embarking on spontaneous road trips, Sophia’s boundless enthusiasm and zest for life are infectious. With her by my side, each day is an opportunity for new discoveries and unforgettable memories that will be etched in our hearts forever.
My best friend, Daniel, is a constant source of inspiration and wisdom. His intellectual curiosity and thirst for knowledge are truly remarkable.

Best friends are those with whom we have formed a deep and unique bond. What makes them remarkably special is that we chose them unlike with family. For this, some even consider their best friends to be extensions of themselves.
We all trust our best friends wholeheartedly; that’s why they are the best people to confide in. And many of the lasting memories in our lives are those that we create with them. These memories could be filled with waves of boisterous laughter or even the most piercing pain when your friendship is tested.
Read on and find essay examples and prompts that could motivate you to write about best friends.

“Hanging out with a set of lifelong best friends can be annoying, because the years of inside jokes and references often make their communication unintelligible to outsiders. But this sort of shared language is part of what makes friendships last.”
The above essay delves into the evolution of friendship throughout the different stages of our lives, from childhood and teen years to family life and retirement. While we have all deferred a meetup with friends several times to attend to family and work, many people still treat their friendship as stable and continuous, even in long lapses in communication.

“My best friend is a magical, rooftop sunrise. My best friend is the ocean. My best friend is a hike in the mountains. My best friend is a peaceful afternoon. My best friend is a really good book. My best friend is laughter. My best friend is seeing the world. My best friend is time with people I love.”
This essay takes on a broader definition of a “best friend,” deriving from Marilyn Monroe’s famous quote: “Diamond are a girl’s best friend.” From having excessive material wants for every occasion, the author realizes that the greatest “friends” in life are not material things but the simple joys that nature and love can bring.
“It was supposed to go the way things do in the movies. Nora would tell her best friend that she loved him, he would feel the same way and then they would kiss – preferably in the rain. So when the 30-year-old arts manager declared her love for her best friend when they were still teenagers, she expected a happy ending.”

The essay by Srirn Kale treats its readers to compelling stories of best friends ending up in marriage and those parting ways because of unrequited love. But, before taking the bold step of declaring your love for your best friend, a relationship guru advises lovers first to read the signs that signal any reciprocity of these deep feelings.
“Losing a best friend may be one of the most difficult and heartbreaking experiences you have in your lifetime. If you aren’t sure how to process that your best friend died, know that there are many healthy options when it comes to coping with this type of loss.”
Coping with losing a best friend could lead to depression or even suicidal thoughts, especially if your best friend means the world to you. Some coping tips include journaling your grieving process to understand your emotions and confusion better and doing things that can relive your best friend’s memories.
“If you are happy with the friends you currently have, there’s no need to try making a best friend for the sake of it. You might have friends but no best friend; that’s perfectly OK. It’s not necessary to have a BFF.”
Not everyone has a best friend. Some would find this fact hard to believe, but a YouGov survey has shown that 1 in 5 of the US population claims to have no close friends. The essay, therefore, explores the reasons for this friendlessness and gives tips on building a bond with potential best friends, starting with your existing circle of acquaintances.
Check out our top writing prompts to help you celebrate and write about best friends.
Begin this essay by describing what your best friend looks like and what traits you like most about them. Then, given these qualities, would you consider your best friend a role model? Your essay can also answer how similar you and your best friend are and what things you both agree on. But if you have more differences than similarities, write how you deal with them or put them aside.
In this essay, describe your favorite ways to hang out with your best friend. What do you like doing together? Describe what a day spent with your best friend looks like and which part you like most about your dates. If your conversations draw your mutual admiration for each other, then talk about what topics make you talk for hours on end and their perspectives on things that you find fascinating.
Do different time zones make friends grow apart? Or does distance make the heart grow fonder? First, interview two to three people whose best friends moved to a different country or city. Next, learn how frequently they communicate with each other. Finally, compile these stories and make a smooth transition to each one such that the structure highlights the challenges of long-distance friendships and how each set of friends gets by.
Discarding best friends is a hard decision. But it is also brave if you feel they are dragging you down. For this prompt, you can pose a list of questions readers can ask themselves to grasp the situation better. For example, is your friend doing you more harm than good? Have you set boundaries that they find hard to respect? Then, explain how reflecting on each question can help one determine when it is time to cut some ties loose.
Falling in love with your best friend can only end in two scenarios: a happy ever after or an end of a beautiful relationship. Expanding on our essay prompt above, list down more tips to know when it is best to confront your best friend about your feelings or work hard to quash your emotions for the continuity of the relationship.
Pick out best friends from novels that formed friendships that touched you the most. They could be Harry, Ron, Hermoine of Harry Potter, Frodo, Sam of the Lord Of The Rings, or even Sherlock and Watson From The Adventures Of Sherlock Holmes. First, describe what it is in their friendship that you find most riveting. Then, narrate events that served as the biggest tests to their friendships and how they conquered these challenges.
What about dogs that some people find more lovable than others? Answer this in your essay by outlining the traits that make a dog the ideal best friend. For one, their loyalty makes us confident that they will not betray us. If you have a dog, write about the qualities that make your dog a reliable and fun companion. Then, narrate events when your dog proved to be your best friend.

My Best Friend Essay: 500 Words
‘A man is known by the company he keeps’, Says a proverb. Hence one needs to be very careful in selecting friends. As Shakespeare has pointed out in his play ‘As You Like It’, ‘Most friendship is feigning, most loving mere folly’. Fair-weather friends are plenty; true and reliable friends are few and far between.
My Best Friend
I have many friends in my school , but most of them are only so-called friends. They are not dependable. Out of them, only Arvind is my true and sincere friend. He is my best friend. I am, indeed, proud of his friendship.
Arvind is the only son of a district court judge. Even then he is very humble and modest. His financial position is sound and enviable. Yet prosperity has not turned him proud and rude. He is not puffed with pride.
Arvind has all the fine qualities of head and heart. He is tall, healthy, and handsome. He is affectionate, kind, sociable, and extremely helpful. He is a good sportsman on the playground and an inviable scholar in the classroom. All praise, honour, and admiration sit lightly on him. He is not swollen-headed. He is all the more modest and polite because of them.
He is a hard-working boy. He is kind and compassionate. His heart melts at the sight of poverty, sickness and human suffering of any kind. In order to serve the suffering humanity selflessly, he has decided to become a doctor and set up his medical practice in some rural Adivasi area. He often says that the selfless service of the poor is the true service of God.
I am so proud that I have such an ideal friend like Arvind. Because of his company and rare friendship, my outlook, attitude, and behaviour have been positively influenced. His friendship has given a new, healthy dimension to my life and I, now, look forward to a happy and bright future.
Arvind is indeed, the architect of my life and the moulder of my destiny in the right direction. He is my friend, guide, and philosopher. I envy myself for having such an ideal friend.

Essay on My Best Friend for Students and Children
500+ words essay on my best friend.
Friendship is one of the greatest blessings that not everyone is lucky enough to have. We meet a lot of people in the journey of life but there are only a few who leave a mark on us. My best friend is one such person who has been able to make a positive impact on my life. We have been a part of each other’s lives for the longest time and our friendship is still developing. She has been with me through all the thicks and thins. Most importantly, I feel extremely fortunate to have someone as a best friend in my life. In this essay on my best friend, I will tell you about how we became friends and about her best qualities.
Our friendship started when my best friend came in as a new admission to our class. Both of us were hesitant to talk to each other at first, but gradually we developed a bond. I remember the first time my best friend tried to talk to me; I rolled my eyes because I thought there was no use and we wouldn’t hit it off. However, to my surprise, we became best friends by the end of the session year.
We learned so many things about each other and found out that our taste in music and fashion was so similar. Since then, there was no stopping us. We spent all our time together and our friendship became the talk of the class. We used to help each other out in studies and visited each other’s homes as well. We made sure to have lunch together on Sundays. We also used to watch movies and cartoons together.
On our summer break, we even went to summer camp together and made a lot of memories. Once during the summer holidays, she also accompanied me to my maternal grandparents’ home. We had a fabulous time there. Moreover, we even invented our own handshake which only both of us knew. Through this bond, I learned that family doesn’t end with blood because my best friend was no less than my family. Friendship is one relationship that you choose, unlike all other relationships.

Qualities of My Best Friend
I feel one of the main reasons why I formed such a bond with my best friend was because of the qualities she possesses. Her courage always inspired me to raise my voice against injustice as she always stood up to her bullies. She is also one of the smartest minds in class who doesn’t only excel academically but also in life. I have never seen a dancer as good as my best friend, the accolades she has won are proof of her talent.
Above all, I feel the quality that appeals to me the most is her compassion . Whether it’s towards humans or animals, she always keeps the same approach. For instance, there was an injured stray dog that was wailing in pain, my best friend did not only get him treated but she also adopted him.
Similarly, she saw a poor old woman on the streets one day and she only had money for her lunch. My best friend did not hesitate once before giving all of it to the poor lady. That incident made me respect her even more and inspired me to help the underprivileged more often.
