Your BFFs Are Your Real Soulmates — Here’s Why

When it comes to soulmates, it’s a term you probably automatically apply to a romantic partner that you plan on spending the rest of your life with rather than your closest friends. The truth is, your BFFs are more than capable of filling the soulmate role, and chances are, if you paid closer attention, you’d see they already do.

You can talk on the phone for hours.

When’s the last time you and a guy were on the phone for more than 10 minutes without him getting antsy? Maybe you could hold his non-visual attention back when you were first getting to know each other, but you’ve known your girls for years and can talk for hours and hours before you realize you’ve downed the whole bottle of wine and left your dinner burning in the oven. Oops.

You have so much more in common.

  Your boyfriend probably appreciates the extra effort you put into getting your nails done every week, but you’re dreaming if you think he can tell the difference between OPI “Sweetheart” and “Step Right Up”. Not only will your gal pals notice the subtle color change, they’re probably sitting right next to you because nobody should have to get a mani alone.

You can read each other’s minds and finish each other’s sentences.

  She knows when you say “my boyfriend” you’re really referring to the new guy in your building who doesn’t even know you exist. She’s such a good friend she’ll start calling him your boyfriend too, but it doesn’t come without a hitch… she’s going to make you talk to him. It may be awkward, but it’s definitely for your own good.

You can be brutally honest with each other

If your boyfriend asked you what was going on with your face, he wouldn’t get laid for a month (if ever again), but when she says it, you’re all like, “I know, right? FIX IT!”

You can share everything. 

Sure, your boyfriend’s t shirts are your most favorite things to borrow, but your girlfriends have clothes (and makeup, shoes, purses, and jewelry) you can actually wear in public.

They know all of your secrets. 

Accessories aren’t the only things you share — you know everything there is to know about each other. She even knows when your period is late before your guy does, but that’s probably just because you hang out so much your cycles have synced.

You know what each other like and don’t like. 

She knows not to serve you anything other than Kim Crawford Sauv Blanc and that there should always be at least four bottles chilled when you come over, but that’s OK, because it’s her favorite, too. You also know there better not be any bacon anywhere near her salad, or that poor waitress will never know what hit her.

You have a million inside jokes.

So much so that your significant others feel like the third wheel whenever they’re lucky enough to hang out with you.

You FaceTime each other with no makeup on. 

You wouldn’t even dare trying this with your own mother (because she would never be able to refrain from commenting on how awful you look), so when it comes to baring all, your best friend is your one and only.

She hates people on your behalf. 

It doesn’t matter that she’s never even met the person — once you tell her they betrayed you, she’ll be out for blood. Your boyfriend, on the other hand,will most likely be “staying out of it.”

You fight with her like a sister.

Sister fights are on another level, and despite not sharing the same blood, you two have managed to reach it. While these can get undoubtedly messier than friend fights, you’re basically obligated to make up right away or you know, the world might end.
