Cover Letter: Friendship Application

To that person I spoke to last week,

After meeting you briefly at that party last weekend, I’d like you to know that I am extraordinarily interested in applying for the position of your friend. Like you, I have a passion for watching TV that, when combined with my extremely relaxed attitude toward life, makes me the perfect buddy to hang out with on a weekend when you don’t want to do anything after a week of hellish toil. Additionally, I have many hobbies that motivate me to do fun things on the occasion that we both have some amount of energy.

As you can see in my attached friend resume, my past experience as a friend gives me the stellar qualities that I’m sure you are looking for in a BFF, including the following:

  • As a second grade best friend to Jennifer A., I learned valuable friendship skills such as how to always pick each other for classroom partners and playground games. These abilities would be  useful in my friendship with you because I would always make sure to invite you to parties with me, and we could go to karaoke together and play Settlers of Catan and other board games.
  • While filling the position of best friend to Jenny B. in seventh grade, I had the opportunity to refine my natural friendship talents into something that was able to stand the test of middle school. I acquired the ability to navigate gossip and sort through drama, which has only strengthened my knack for kindly cutting through to the truth in the case that our friendship reaches rocky waters.
  • My high school bestfriendship with Jen C. allowed me to hone my supportive and caring nature so that I am now basically the most considerate person you could ever meet. Since I survived the Great Prom Debacle of 2007, it should be clear that I can support a BFF through literally anything.
  • During my college period of being besties with JD, I used my organizational and communication skills to plan birthday parties, schedule supportive and therapeutic mental health days, and maintain a list of which college events and organizations would most interest us as BFFs. As a result, I have no doubt that I would be able to achieve similarly incredible levels of life interest as your friend in ways that would be adjusted specifically for you as an individual.

As you can see, my years of experience being a friend undoubtedly make me the best possible candidate for the position of Your Friend. In return, I have a few minor compensation requirements I’d like to see from you along the lines of unlimited hugs, a spare toothbrush in your bathroom, and planning and funding my wedding in three to seven years. I’d love to schedule an interview/friend date at your convenience. Coffee is on me, although I’m sure we’ll get to that point soon where it honestly doesn’t even matter who pays.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
