20 Things That Happen When You Live With Your BFF



When you’re a child, living with your best friend is something that you can only dream about. Spending every moment of free time you share together, you make plans for the future, secretly wishing that you could just grow up already. As an adult, living with your BFF is better than you had ever dreamed; every day is a sleepover and you can eat all the snacks you want without the prying eyes of your parents. Over time, though, you start to develop some freaky habits that, were anyone else to see, would be completely embarrassing. Living with your best friend will change you completely and pretty soon, you will forget what life was like before.

You Discuss “Would You Rather” For Hours

What started out as a silly time waster soon becomes something completely serious. You spend hours debating each ‘Would You Rather’ question and to this day, you can’t decide between feet as hands or hands as feet.

You Know Everything About Their Bodily Functions

From digestive problems to skin irritations and allergies, if there’s something wrong with your body, your BFF knows about it. Just think of it as a dry run for your pensioner years.

You Can Exist For Days In Silence

For all the hours you spend talking to one another, you can spend the same amount of time wrapped in easy, comfortable silence. You can practically read each other’s minds, so who needs to talk?

You Text From Across The Room

If you’re sitting on the sofa and need a snack, you text your BFF in their room. You text each other more than family members and significant others and everyone else is just going to have to deal with that.

You Have A Joint Wardrobe

“What’s mine is yours and what’s yours is mine” has never been more true. You have swapped clothes so many times that you no longer remember who originally bought what. And it really doesn’t matter, anyway.

You Share Underwear

Likewise, you never know whose underwear you’re really wearing. You do all your laundry together, anyway, so it’s really the same difference.

You Talk Solely About Food

You’ve gone through all other topics more times than you care to remember and now, 90% of your relationship is built around discussing your dream pizza topping. Food is top of the list on any discussion and if outsiders come in, they simply wouldn’t understand.

You Sneak Up On Each Other In The Bathroom

Bathroom is space is communal space and if one of you is using the room, the other has no issue with strolling in like nothing’s going down. And really, it’s not; the bathroom is where you have your deepest conversations, everyone knows that.

You Secretly Text When You’re On Dates

Your best friend’s opinion is the only one that really counts and you always keep each other updated when you’re on dates. Your date is going to have to get along with your BFF, after all; they have to be compatible too.

Your House Is Pants-Optional

You got over the social niceties long ago and by now, you operate by a pants optional rule. When it’s really hot out, underwear will suffice; you’ve seen it all before, anyway.

Oversharing Does Not Exist

You need to know about every part of each other’s days, so you tell each other everything. No detail is insignificant and if you don’t know about their entire day’s food consumption, bathroom activity and weird thoughts, something is wrong.

You Discuss Each Other’s Parents

You have been on first name terms with each other’s parents for years and you talk about them like they’re old friends of yours. Sometimes, you forget who your real parents are; you’re one big family.

Holidays Apart Feel Like Decades

You dread the times in which they go away for a weekend, or worse, a holiday. Time apart drags like nothing else and you secretly count down the days until their return.

Catching Up On Your Shows Alone Is A Crime

You love the same TV shows, naturally, so when one is caught watching a series without the other, it’s a big deal. Catching up on TV without the other is basically illegal and to do so is to make a big and dangerous statement.

Snacks Are Always For Two

You don’t even bother making snack for just you any more; as soon as your BFF hears the rustle of a cookie bag, they’re in the kitchen like the speed of light. Food is there to be shared, so share you do.

You Take Turns In Hangover Duty

Whilst there’s nothing better than partying together, you run on a hangover rotation schedule, meaning that only one of you can be really hungover at once. That way, you can be there to clean up the mess.

You Have No Problem With Raising Your Voice

If there’s dishes to be washed and laundry to be done, you have no issue with letting your BFF know. You’re not scared of hurting their feelings because really, there’s nothing you could say to make them stop loving you anyway.

Nights In Are Better Than Nights Out

When you go out, you can’t hear each other and normally have to invite other people along, too. Nights in can be spent in your pajamas, with bowls of snacks and nothing but hours of Netflix.

You’ve Read Their Diary

The diaries they kept during high school have made the rounds more than one time and you know all about the difficulties they faced during that time. You’ve shown them your own diary and fully trust them with the secrets it contains.

You Know Their Entire Romantic History

From their long term love to that weird crush they had as a teenager, you know about every facet of their romantic life. If they meet someone, you are the first person to know it and give your approval.
