10 Habits That Prove Your BFF Status

10 Habits That Prove Your BFF Status

Being a true best friend isn’t always peaches and rainbows — it’s about the struggles too. If you and your BFF do all of the following, congratulations! She’s your BFF for life.

  1. You talk about really gross stuff… literally. True best friends aren’t afraid to talk about disgusting things that legit happen to our bodies, including the gory details about periods and how you reacted to that extra spicy burrito you ate for lunch. Nothing is off limits and you laugh about it together, even when it’s really seriously gross.
  2. You bicker and fight like sisters. Being a best friend means you’re as close to her as you are with your own family, and what do families do from time to time? They bicker, but no matter how petty or how testing, they get the hell over it and make up, because the everlasting bond is worth the struggles. If you don’t fight with your BFF, are you truly best friends?
  3. You’re brutally honest with each other. We all have those friends that we sugar coat everything with and tell them what they want to hear, but your best friend isn’t that friend. You’ll tell her when she’s acting or behaving like a complete moron or when she’s making a huge mistake in life because you truly have her best interest in mind.
  4. You support each other in traumatic times. No matter what is going on in your individual lives, if something truly devastating happens to one of you, the other is there without hesitation.
  5. You celebrate your friendiversary. As cheesy as it sounds, you celebrate your milestones and years of friendship regularly because she’s a significant part of your life. She’s your significant other, always.
  6. You know each other’s families. Her parents are your parents. You’re not formal with them, either — there’s no “Hello, Mrs. Thompson!” — it’s Mom and Dad, and they treat you like their own, as well.
  7. You act like you’re at home in their home. When you go over to her house, you immediately bolt to the fridge looking for something to drink and eat. Sometimes she’s not even home and you do this. Mi casa, su casa, right?
  8. You can’t make important decisions without her help. Anything big in life requires a mandatory consult with your bestie. Her approval and support is important to make you feel confident in your choices since she’s a big part of your life, too. Hell, you can’t even go out sometimes without her approving your mirror selfie of your outfit.
  9. You never give up on the friendship. She’s the one you regard with vows unspoken: ’til death do us part. Your friendship is like a marriage, and as such, requires a lot of love, patience, understanding and nurturing to continue to grow forever until you’re senile old ladies.
  10. Everyone knows who your BFF truly is. Because you hashtag it on everything and make proclamations of it all the time. She’s the one you talk highly of all the time and she’s the one who’s always going to have your back, and you want everyone to know who has hers.
