Originated with Andrew and Brandon from Grand Island Nebraska.

"Real Friends" is used to a describe a friendship between two people that completely understand each other. It's the upper echelon of all friendships and is even ranked above the relationship. Keep in mind though that the "real friends" are not gay, it's just that their friendship is so strong that even a heterosexual relationship between a couple cannot compared to the strength of this friendship.
Andrew: Hey man, I told her I loved her but I had to hang out with you on Saturday instead of her

Brandon: Real friends dude, Real Friends

Andrew: You know it!

a person who makes your problems theirs and tries to help you through them.. however, sometimes creating them.

the person who would st with you at lunch when your other so-called 'friends' diched you because you weren't 'cool'//'accepted' is your real friend.

the real friend that tells you never to worry about the things you cant change.

The one person that will stand by you, no matter what. They will help you with your problems and give you the advice you need, even if it isn't what you want to hear. They will put you first and make time for you when you need them. They will always have your back when you need it but won't hesitate to tell you when you're wrong.

No matter how long you are apart you can pick up right where you left off with them.
Jay has always been there for me even when he's had all kinds of other stuff going on. He's a "real friend".

Beth has never been a "real friend" but I never thought she would betray me like that.

A friend in real life who hangs out with you in the real world. Unlike a friend you met online and have never met in real life in person.
Chloe: Is he your real friend?

Ben: Nah I met him on Facebook.
