You two don’t hold back to keep the peace at any cost, you won’t tiptoe around each other because you’re afraid to say something that one of you won’t want to hear.
Instead, you guys will risk a fight in order to tell each other what you need to hear.
Sometimes, you’re such weirdos with each other that you both have to stop and laugh at how crazy you are, and how lame any outsiders would probably think you’re being. Of course, that just makes it even funnier.
You have the most ridiculous nicknames for each other, and you literally talk in inside jokes. If someone would read your messages they would think you’re both legit crazy, perverted, and probably should be locked up too.
They’re also the person who tells you whenever something is holding you back, even if it’s you who’s holding back you. Actually, especially then.
The least awesome circumstances—breaking up with bae, getting fired, or “failing” at something—don’t seem so shitty when you’re with your best friend because you can identify the memories being made while the frustrating things happen and that’s enough to make you smile.
Being single is actually the most fun thing in the world because you and your best friend act more like a couple than 90 percent of couples do. Boom.
