You may or may not already have your Big/Little yet, but you'll see that there are those Big & Littles that are extremely close, and there are those that aren't after a month- well, there's a reason for that. Big/Little relationships are like a real relationship- it takes dedication, effort, and communication! If you're about to get your Big/Little or if you already have yours, it's never too late to start working on it. Your Big/Little can really change your college & sorority life experience in a positive way, so put all the effort and build a strong relationship!
Through our experience, we wanted to provide you with some important core values of a strong Big/Little relationship to follow!
1. Be Approachable
This applies to everything and anything. We're not telling you guys to be BFFs, but always be each other's go-tos for everything! Whether you need someone to go get fro-yo with or you need some help/guidance, it's always great to make yourself approachable to one another.
2. No Hierarchy, Bigs!
We see a lot of ups & downs when Bigs' feel entitled to things! It's always good to respect one another and treat each other equally- those are the ones that last the longest :)
3. Make Each Other Feel Included
It's important to always make one another feel included in whatever it is that you are doing. If it's a birthday trip, invite your Big/Little! If you're getting together before a date dash, invite her to come over! Whatever it is, it's always nice to make one another feel included so the relationship stays strong and no one feels left out!
4. Be each other's #1 FAN!
Be proud to be one another's Big/Little! Always be each other's #1 fan and cheer each other on everything.
These are 4 important core values that every strong Big/Little relationship has. What are some other things that you can think of?
