Friendship is one of the things that make life beautiful, but it can be problematic in our day-to-day lives, too. Finding the ideal friend is a completely different journey for every one of us. It might be easy for some, but others might still need to find a friend worth having. This is because we all have different parameters for what we look for in a friend and what we’re willing to offer in a friendship. These two factors will determine if the type of friendship you’re looking for can even work and how long it takes you to find it.
There’s a fraction of people who meet their best friends for life early on, in their school or neighborhood. These lucky people always have that one person to rely on. They don’t have to create their friendship requirements, nor do they need to think, for the lack of a better word, calculatedly.
In today’s blog, we’ll discuss how to remove someone from your Snapchat best friends list without losing your streak. Stay with us till this blog’s end to learn all about it.
How to Remove Someone from Snapchat Best Friend Without Losing Streak
Snapchat is a large social media platform where you can connect with friends and strangers worldwide. You can be whoever you want to and message whoever you want to talk to. Doesn’t that sound so exciting to have so many opportunities?
However, most users on Snapchat prefer to keep their stranger contact to a minimum and focus on strengthening their bonds with their existing friends instead. They still expand their network and add friends from the Quick-Add section but generally don’t talk to them.
That is unless they suffer from highly-extroverted proficiency. In that case, they’ll talk to anyone they feel like since they don’t feel anxious or stressed by the prospect of it.
Let’s say you’re one of those people and have met someone new who you like a lot on Snapchat. It’s completely alright; we all have fallen into the nice, online friends trap at least once. We meet someone, share views, and think, “they so get me!”
However, it isn’t always so flowery and rainbow-y, is it? Sometimes, it turns out they’re not who they claim to be, just an imposter trying to take advantage of your gullibility for their entertainment. Don’t worry; at least one such encounter is good, integral even, for your character development.
Anyhow, now that your character’s all developed, you’re wondering how to get rid of this person. You might have cussed them out already.
But if you’re a diplomatic person, or your situation is somewhat complicated, there’s a good chance they don’t know you’ve found out the truth about them. It’s also possible there’s no dark truth; they’re just a rather boring person and are good at making small talk in the beginning.
So, now you’re wondering if you can remove them from your Snapchat best friends list without losing the six-month-long streak you have going on with them. While we’d love to help you, removing a user from Snapchat’s best friend list without losing your streak with them is impossible.
Technically, there’s no way to remove someone from Snapchat’s best friend list, period. You’d have to stop snapping and chatting with them completely, remove them as friends on Snapchat, or block them. These are the only ways to throw someone out of your best friends list, and you lose your streak with them in all three cases.
We’d suggest going with either unfriending or blocking them. What’s the point of salvaging a streak with someone who you don’t like in the first place, right?
Snapchat has several provisions to ensure you have a great experience without harassment. If you have a problem with their personality, you should go with unfriending them. However, if they’re bothering you, outright lying to or harassing you, block and report them without a second thought.
Here’s how to block, unfriend, and report someone on Snapchat
Step 1: Launch Snapchat on your smartphone and log in to your account.
Step 2: The first page you’ll land on is the Snapchat camera. At the bottom, locate and tap on the chat bubble icon to the camera icon’s left.
Step 3: That will take you to your Chats page. Tap on the bitmoji or the image of the user you want to block; this will bring you over to their profile.
It’s not a problem if you don’t have any chats with them or you’ve deleted them. Tap on a magnifying glass icon at the top right corner of the page, right next to your bitmoji.
Step 4: Search for their username and open their profile. At the top right corner, tap on the three-dots icon.
Step 5: A pop-up menu will appear with many options. Tap on the second one, called Manage Friendship.
Step 6: You can either Report, Block, or Remove Friend. Do whichever feels right to you, even if that means reporting them to Snapchat.
In the end
As we end this blog, let’s recap all we’ve discussed today.
Snapchat is a large social media platform with some of the most intriguing features you’ll ever see. Streaks and bitmojis are the game-changers of social media features; it’s unbelievable how little they get recognized for it.
