“I was once told which i didn’t desire a tight group of girlfriends because Chris should be my best good friend. But I never bought that,” Anna writes in the booklet, with Cosmopolitan posting a snippet.
“The thought of your mate being your very best good friend – it’s overhyped. I really believe that your lover serves one purpose and each good friend will serve another.”
