Let's be honest, we'd be absolutely lost in every aspect of life if it wasn't for our girlfriends. From the first day of preschool until we're old and playing bridge, our lady friends will always be at our side. To celebrate National Friendship Day on Aug. 2, here are 15 reasons why our girlfriends rock our socks off.

5. A friend can always make you smile... and laugh until you ugly cry...

6. And give you a hug when you're shedding true-blue tears.

7. BFF's always put you first... even if it's in the midst of a super hot date.
