Best friends are for life, not just for birthdays.

Best friends go through a lot together - what with starting and finished Netflix series, devouring tub after tub of Ben and Jerry’s and using up all your data allowance with your constant WhatsApp’ing. 

But how do you know when you’re BEST BEST friends? Not just friends, but BFF’s. For life. 

> The 11 Inevitable Stages Of Looking After Your BFF During A BIG Night Out

Here’s how. 

1. They know better than to post THAT hated selfie online. 

You know some friends post photos on your birthday where they look great and you look rubbish? Not your best friend. They know better than to post that hated photo and give you the chance to approve it beforehand. 

2. You can have a full blown conversation through facial expressions alone.

Ever had that moment where someone walks into the room and you and your gal pal share a look? A look that explains exactly what you’re both thinking without having to say a word?

Yeah, that. 

3. You share the same enemies.

Even if you a) don’t know why. b) don’t know the person. It’s just the rules.

4. They stop you from texting your ex. 

“You’re so much better without him”. 

5. They like every single Instagram photo you post. It's part of the job description.

You’re convinced they have you set up on alerts. 

And if they don’t like your new selfie within 5 minutes, you’re texting them asking them to hit that heart button. 

6. You two have a song and whenever it comes on, you. must. dance.

It’s like a magnet to the dance floor.

7. They know better than to watch an episode of your favourite TV show without you.

Girl, if we’re starting this Netflix journey together, we’re ending it together. Don’t you go watching ahead without me. 

8. You speak to each other in memes, GIF’s and dog videos. 

Sometimes there’s an odd kitten video thrown in there too.

9. You have your own emoji code.

You know exactly what those two red exclamation marks mean. 

10. If you take a selfie and one of you looks average at best, you’ll keep retaking it. 

True friendship is where you both look equally awesome.

11. You screenshot WhatsApp messages from other people and they help you write a sassy AF reply.

Same goes for weird things that you see on Instagram - you must discuss it immediately.

12. They know exactly how you like your tea. 

And toast. And will bring it to you in bed.

13. But most importantly, whatever you say or do, you know they've always got your back.
