Could Chandler Bing BE the best Friends character?
Though Chandler never misses a chance to tease his friends (and, let’s be honest, they are constantly giving him new ammo), behind his sarcastic comments is a heart full of love.
In the early seasons of Friends, we see Chandler use his humor to mask his insecurities and awkwardness, which simply made him more relatable to the audience. Who doesn’t feel insecure and awkward in their early twenties?
And though he never grew out of the awkwardness, we see him slowly gain confidence throughout the seasons as he grows up, falls in love, and finally accepts himself for who he is.
While all the friends are relatable in some way, Mrs. Chanandler Bong will always have a special place in our nostalgic hearts.
