Tibian Girls: Breaking the stereotype - Tibian Girls Friendships

July is a month of friendship! Therefore, we prepared a small article to present you several long-lasting friendships between tibia girls! 

It is commonly believed that we, girl gamers, are more likely to make friends with men. There is some truth to that because finding girls for this interview was quite a challenge! After having made a survey asking if the players had a tibia best friend, the most of women I contacted directly answered that their best friend was male! Does that mean that the stereotype that girls only make friends with boys has some truth in it? It surely does. However, there are many exceptions to that stereotype and in this article, we will present you several couples of girls who talk about their friendships and what should a best friend be like!

We will start with our own friendship that is probably one of the most beautiful things that happened to us!


Lady Mass & Divine'Angel


How did you guys meet?

"We met on a Tibian fan page on Facebook, I was in the staff and some time later Kasia joined the staff too and I was asked to tell her how everything works, as we both were Polish, and that’s how we started talking. We also had another mutual friend, and we eventually created a group with the 3 of us and we talked more and more and felt more connected with each other everyday. Ever since that day, which was around 7 years back, we talk literally every day." - Lady Mass 

"When I met Justyna, I had the impression that she was the sweetest and the most feminine girl I had ever met. We started talking more and more and it turned out our personalities and our points of view were literally always the same. We had so much laugh together on Whatsapp and we ended up talking all day every day. I think that within the last 7 years, there wasn't a single day that we wouldn't talk. Nowadays, she is such a big part of me I simply cannot imagine my life without her in it!" - Divine'Angel

 

What makes your friend special?

"What makes Justyna special is that for all those years she witnessed both my downs and ups and she was there for me not only when my life wasn't the best but also when I started doing well, both in the game and also in my real life. Some people say you get to know a good friend when your life gets tough but I think that's not true. I think you recognize a good friend when you are at your best. No red flags, no competition. Just her cheering for me whatever I do. That makes her special because I think it's so rare between women. Especially in Tibia." - Divine'Angel

What personality traits should a good friend have? 

"I’ll not be too original with my answer, in my opinion a good friend should be loyal and trustworthy. It is crucial to know you can share your secrets with someone and to know that your secrets are safe with that person. A good friendship needs to be built on mutual respect and lack of jealousy. For me, my bff is basically like a sister to me. Now would you be jealous of your sister, or would you rather motivate her to succeed even more? I think friends should be happy for each other and hype each other up, even if it’s about something small, the positive vibes are really important. But we should also be natural. Every friendship is different and everyone expects something else from their friend. But long as there is an infinite trust and you both vibe nicely, then the friendship will most likely last the whole eternity." - Lady Mass

Do you have a passion in common? What is it?

"Our mutual passion is obviously TibiaGoals. I like comparing it to our "baby" because it strengthens our bond just like a child does between its parents, haha! We both have the same goals and ambitions if it comes to the page. We both want the best for it. It's good to have the same passion as your friend because when you both work hard for something and it becomes something big, you can enjoy it together. The happiness is stronger and it feels amazing to be able to share it with someone who knows exactly how it feels." - Divine'Angel

 

Ewrr & Claara

How did you guys meet?

"We met thanks to another friend, in Ventrilo, from there we made a match and started talking daily. I have known her for more than 10 years. We met in real life and we are planning to see each other again, I hope to visit her soon in Canada!" - Ewrr

What makes your friend special? 

"Her personality. She is too honest, when she doesn't like something, she says it immediately!"  Ewrr

What personality traits should a good friend have? 

"First of all honesty. I think there is no need to be similar, we can have totally different personalities and like each other, I think that a personality complements that of your friend, that the person understands and respects you, even if they have completely different ideas." Ewrr

Tell us about a funny situation that happened to you

"When we finally decided to meet, she currently lives in Canada, we met in a parking lot, I gave her the description of the car I was in, I think the nerves were too much that she mistakenly opened the door of another car, and she started saying Hello, all excited, then she realized that she was in the wrong car, she was very ashamed, then we started to laugh!" Ewrr

Bambina & Lady Niiz

How did you guys meet?

"Well, I didn't make any friends at Garnera when I started to play in September 20', so I posted in a tibia Facebook group something like "any Brazilian playing at Garnera?" and a friend of her answered "message her, she will help you!"... so I messaged and we love each other since day 1! Denise and I created a very beautiful and strong bond, we were able to understand just with the tone of voice. We know when one is having a bad day, we know how to cheer us up and most of all, we know when one needs the other with just a word. We take great care of our friendship and I know that we'll keep it alive forever. Meeting her in RL was a very special and wonderful moment. That's why I suggest: give your Tibian friendship a chance, beautiful things can be born from there." - Bambina

 What makes your friend special?

"I think honesty and caring make us very special to each other. We can discuss anything, exchange experiences without judgment, and we respect each other's opinions. I absolutely know I can count on her, and that's reciprocated." - Bambina

 

What personality traits should a good friend have?

"I believe that to maintain a healthy friendship i's necessary to have a lot of patience, love and empathy. We need to take care of each other, respect the time, and be supportive. That's the essence, and when we realize we're in the same space, everything becomes easier and lighter. Storms can come, but like good friends, we surf them." - Bambina

Do you have any passion in common? What is it? 

"Of course, we do! DECORATION! we absolutely love this universe, we spend hours choosing each item carefully, and we can spend many hours just talking and enjoying each other's company." - Bambina

Ala Nha

Tell us about a funny situation that happened to you

"One day, Bebita and I went to level up our makers to Issavi. She died x4, but the funny thing is that the first 3 times she died, she bought blessings from the market to get them back quickly cause she didn’t have the inquisition quest done. The last time, she decided to buy an  AOL only cause blessings were too expensive. Well, she came back… and died. I ran to check her body and she lost everything with the AOL in her backpack. I started literally laughing my ass off and she got mad at me XD!" - Ala Nha
