15 signs that you’re really best buddies

Best buddies are hard to find, and fuck buddies are even harder to find, but once you find them you’ll never be the same. There are so many unwritten rules of friendship, and so many unspoken signs that you guys are truly meant for eachother. We all have that one friend who we can’t live without, no matter how long we’ve known them. They’re the person who knows us better than ourselves and has been there for the good, the bad, and the ugly. Here are 12 signs that you’re really best buddies- for life.

  1. They don’t judge you. Your best buddy should never judge you, no matter how awful or embarrassing you can act sometimes. Whether you’re drinking vodka on a monday, getting back with your ex, or haven’t showered in 2 days, there’s no room for judgement between the two of you. That includes questionable hookup decisions and binge eating after a bad week. No judgement means that you can talk to your best buddy about anything and everything, which is one of the most important aspects of friendship. This is especially important for friends with benefits.
  2. They would never post a bad picture of you. Your best buddy knows better than to post an unflattering picture of you on any form of social media. They don’t want you looking like crap any more than you do. They’ll always get your approval of a questionable picture of you before they post, cuz that’s what BFFS do.
  3. You make fun of each other. There’s no way that two people can be best buddies without making fun of each other nearly 24/7. Mocking is the sincerest form of flattery, anyways. If you give each other grief, it just means that you’re close and comfortable enough to get away with it. Of course, if someone else is giving your BFF crap, you’ll be the first person that knocks them down. No one can make fun of them but you, after all.
  4. Clothes are optional. Best buddies don’t care about seeing you in your skivvies or your birthday suit. It just doesn’t matter. Enjoying a Friends marathon on the couch all day long without pants is routine for you and your best buddy.
  5. There are no boundaries. Yes, no boundaries mean no closed bathroom doors, graphic sex talk, and sharing your deepest dark secrets with one another. When you realize there are no longer boundaries between you two, that’s when you know it must be real. You can even share about the most intimate details of the guys and girls you’re fucking.
  6. You have the same enemies. Don’t like someone? Neither does your best buddy. There doesn’t need to be reasons nor explanations, that’s just the way it is. Even if you don’t know why you’re hating on the person, you just have to accept it and move on. You know that they would do the same for you, too.
  7. You know their relationship history like the back of your hand. You know your best buddy’s previous relationships, flings, and one night stands as if you would be tested on it. You even know the name of their first kiss from way back in middle school. Knowing this kind of information comes in handy if you ever happen to run into an ex, you know how to help them avoid them.
  8. They give you the like and comment hookup on social media. You can always rely on your best buddy to like and comment on every single one of your social media posts, no matter how mundane they are. Why would they let you go without that one extra like?
  9. If one of you wants to drink or eat, you both drink or eat. In the mood for a margarita? So are they. Want to order a pizza? They’re down. You can always guarantee that your best buddy will share your eating and drinking habits with you no matter the time of day.
  10. You talk shit about your family and other friends all the time. Your best buddy knows all about the annoying stuff your mom does, your friend Sam’s habit that drives you insane, and the sibling that is on your shit list at the moment. Talking crap is like a hobby between the two of you at this point.
  11. You argue. Only fake, surface level friends have a smooth sailing friendship all the time. You guys aren’t afraid to tell each other how you really feel, and sometimes that causes friction. Best buddies argue and disagree all the time, because you’re comfortable enough to do so. But of course, you guys always get over it.
  12. They don’t babysit you. Your best buddy isn’t one of those annoying people who tries to cut you off from drinking or talk you out of making out with a random at a bar. They understand that they’re not your babysitter, they’re your friend, so they let you do what you want, when you want.
  13. They’re always honest. Your best buddy will tell you the brutal truth, no matter what. It’s for your own good after all. Whether it’s your awful outfit, your bad haircut, or your ugly hookup from Saturday, they’ll be sure to let you know.
  14. You can spend 48 hours together and not feel smothered. The more time spent with eachother, the better. You can literally spend up to 48 hours together and not feel like it’s too much. But, once it has been too much, you don’t feel weird leaving either.
  15. You have the best time together. The most important factor between the two of you is that you have a kick ass time together. Whether you’re on vacation, at a club, or studying you always have a blast.
