1. Best friends = Soul-mates
When Charlotte York observed, “Maybe our girlfriends are our soulmates and guys are just people to have fun with.” it opened up a whole new world of thought. Partners may come and go but your friends stay with you through thick and thin, so it is only natural that we accord the coveted “Soulmate” status to them !

2. You DON’T have to succumb under societal pressure with respect to marriage/ children
Society never ceases trying to make everyone adhere to what they think is “right”. The right age to get married, the right time to have kids, the right number of kids and so on and so forth. But it is high time we do only what’s right for us. Case in point – Miranda had a baby (and raised him) with Steve but didn’t marry him until she was certain he was “the one” and that’s what she wanted to do. She didn’t let the fear of “what people might say/ think” affect her life-changing decision.

4. WALK-IN CLOSETS = WHAT DREAMS ARE MADE OF
If you love designer labels, shoes and a dose of retail therapy every now and then, you should definitely work hard and save enough to get yourself a walk-in closet.
5. It’s alright to frankly discuss sex
With people you are close to ofcourse ! Your friends and even your partner. It should not be considered shameful or wrong. Having said that, this does NOT mean that lewd/ obscene comments should be encouraged. Healthy and meaningful discussions about sex help inform, educate and ward against STDs and unwanted pregnancy.

Will you walk with me,
Just stroll without any destination in mind ?
Will you listen to my woes
And kiss my tears away ?
Will you befriend my family
And celebrate with them ?
Will you bring me flowers ;
Laugh at my jokes ?
Can I hope for respect,
for my feelings and my persoanl space ?
Can I confide in you ;
Offer advice and counsel ?
Can I have faith in you ;
Or do expectations inevitably lead to disappointment ?
