Adulthood sometimes feels like middle school all over, or at least that's the way it seems to me. You're thrown into a pool of people who you may or may not have anything in common with and are expected to come out with a few friends. But sometimes, there's that one friend who sticks around; who sees you through the break ups and the long nights and the exciting moments too. Sometimes, it may even feel like you and your BFF are soulmates, which is kind of the best feeling in the world.
At this point in your life, you've probably been through your fair share of friendships. The fair-weather friend who was only there for a few days, the clingy friend who didn't let you do anything without them, the long distance friendship that eventually fizzled out. Throughout life's ups and downs, friendships can come and go quicker than ice cream in July.
So how can you know for sure if your BFF is “the one,” at least as far as friends go? Here are 11 signs you and your friend are more than best friends forever, but soulmates that will be by each other’s side till the end of time.
1. You Talk About Everything
If the two of you can talk about anything and everything under the sun, you're probably BFF soulmates. When you've found a friend like this, it doesn't matter what you talk about, just as long as you're talking.
2. You Reunit & It Feels Like You Were Never Apart
When you're finally back together after a long absence, it will feel like you were together the whole time. You always pick right back up where you left off.
3. You Know Eachother's Darkest Secrets
If you have a friend you can tell anything to, and know and they'll keep it between the two of you then you've hit the jackpot.
4. You Have Your Own Language
Over the years, you've developed a series of signals and facial expressions that only the two of you can comprehend. It's like the adult version of passing notes in class.
5. You Do Ridiculous Things In Public Without Giving It A Second Thought
Sometimes you're so "in tune" that you don't even realize the crazy things you do. Or if you do, you don't give a damn.
6. You Need To Approve Each Other's SOs
When you're in a relationship, their approval is the most needed. After all, you spend more time with them than anyone else.
7. You're Happy For One Another's Wins
You're always cheering you on no matter what. Whether you get the big promotion or finally conquered potty training, you backing each other up every step of the way.
8. And Devastated At Each Other's Loses
Potty training isn't going so well? Your BFF feels your pain like its their own. They'll see you through thick and thin.
9. You're Honest With Each Other
If your friend has ever told you not to wear something out in public or that you really could do better without a certain SO in your life, they're definitely a soulmate. Honesty is hard to come by, but BFFs refuse to serve BS.
10. You Push Each Other To Be Better
Honesty paired with vision can go a long way in a friendship. If your best friend isn't scared to push you outside of your comfort zone, you should keep them around.
