“We have been friends since we were two years old, we literally grew up together. We did kindergarten, middle and high school together. We resemble each other that we are both only daughters, but we never felt like one because we always did things together. Our friendship is based on giving each other our space, we do not talk to each other every day and we are not affectionate but if one of them needs the other we will always be there. She is my sister, that is the perfect summary of our friendship, because we complement each other and I think we are friends until today because we respect each other as friends, giving each other our space and always being for each other.”
Ornella (26) and Bianca (25), best friends since 1998.
“We were born with a 2-month difference. We wear a gold bracelet since the day we were both baptized, together. I believe that we have been best friends from the moment our mothers (sisters and best friends) got pregnant, which was practically at the same time. We have known each other since we were in their tummies. We always liked it playing the sisters. Over time, we became more differentiated. Caro is an industrial engineer, more precise, organized and cold, she maintains her natural hair and has a more classic style. I am a graphic designer; I speak up to my elbows and my hair is a mess. Despite the differences, our friendship is characterized by being unconditional and timeless, because regardless of the time we spend without seeing or speaking, we can always have a sleepover and chat about everything, knowing that we are going to share an intimate moment as if not a single day would have passed.”
Agustina (27) and Carolina (27), best friends since 1994.
“We met in kindergarten when we were 4-years-old. Eli was really bossy as a little girl and looks like she forced me to do something and I slapper her in the face and told her ‘You won’t make me do anything’ and so we became friends, looks like she needed to be cooled down. And then we started being the three of us with Jime, always together in elementary school and summer holidays in Mar del Plata. They are my sisters, my soulmates. I know that we all have friends and it’s common to say ‘If you need anything let me know’ but these girls I know that if I’m in Australia and something happens to me, they move heaven and earth to help me, they go swimming, I don’t doubt it, it’s crazy strong how we feel about each other. It gets annoying, because we are all the time saying, 'I love you, you are my soulmate.' We spend all the time together, drinking beer and chatting, and time flies because we are really chosen sisters. We have a shared tattoo, a tiny heart, as a symbol that we are always united.”
Ana (36), Elizabeth (36) and Jimena (36), best friends since 1989.
“We have a ‘Borgian’ friendship, Jorge Luis Borges once said ‘Friendship does not need frequency’, and that’s how it is with us. It’s not a childish friendship, it is an adult one, we do not claim each other. We can spend months without seeing each other, and when we do it’s like it hasn’t passed a single."
Juana (27) and Pilar (27), best friends since 1999.
