When your soul mate is also your gossip buddy… ;)

We all have friends who disappear off the face of the earth once they get attached.

All that is left are mushy instagram posts of them doing really cutesy, couple-y stuff together, and it makes us puke from their corniness. They’re always joined at the hip when out for social events, and never leave each other’s sides the whole time. How do they do it?

Since I’m someone on the guilty, generally-hated dark side, here’s some hilarious things that happen when your significant other (SO) is also your BFF.

1. You both spend all your time together

It’s common for you both to always hang after work, have lunch together, talk on the phone, snapchat, share stupid pictures from the internet. Basically, devoting every waking moment to them.

2. You talk to each other about EVERYTHING

Nothing is secret. From work politics to hating that mutual friend to the disgusting things you did today; talking to them at the end of the day is a form of (free) therapy for you.

Just lying down and holding hands and talking in the dark is something you do regularly, too.

3. Outings are more fun when your SO is there

Friends are great, but going out without your best friend feels weird, especially because there’s nobody else who can understand your body language. And there’s nobody who will trade half their food portions with you, just so you can get the best of both worlds.

4. Secret handshakes are a form of PDA

Public displays of affection (PDA) are part of your daily routine, but without all the kissy faces. High fives, tiny pinches, hand squeezing… It’s an array of inside jokes, and it’s more adorbz than kissing or grinding in public.

5. You both like (almost) all the same things

Material things are nice, but Netflix-and-snacking is undeniably the best. You both love working out together (sometimes), playing Psych on your phones, and stuffing your faces with pizza while watching The Office.

6. Watching shows together in PJs are part of your dating ritual

On weekend nights where the crowd is insane, it’s granted that both of you don’t need regular fancy dates. Staying home and pigging out is more fun, anyway. Being able to lounge on the bed in comfy loose clothes while binge-watching shows? Absolutely divine.

7. You know what every facial expression/body movement means

The famous wide-eyed look when someone does something weird, the twitch of the mouth when you hear something stupid… The list goes on, and the best part is you both don’t need words to describe how you feel about each other.

8. You do gross nonsexual things

Like wiping snot on each other just to gross each other out. And comparing stomach fat. And giggling about it like little kids.

9. You both have a zillion unglam pictures of each other

COUPLE MASKS ARE FUUUUUUN!

Admit it, you have a close-up of their pimple, or a super detailed picture of their nose. And you’ve definitely sent it to them, and laughed at their reactions.

10. Not wanting to change any of it

Even though you both have your fights, and they have some annoying habits that you absolutely hate, you wouldn’t trade any of it for anyone else.

Who else could understand the weird, fun chemistry that you both have? After all, the two of you are already the epitome of #couplegoals.
