22 Things You Learn After Being Friends With Someone For Five Years

If nothing else you will have learned exactly how to annoy them.

Posted on

1. A handful of properly embarrassing stories to torment them with.

Over the years you have either witnessed or been told some of the most embarrassing things they have ever done, and now you hold those stories close, to use when you see necessary. Or when you haven't had a good laugh in a while.

2. An extensive review of their sexual history.

You will know about all their major relationships (or lack there of) and you will know about the first time they snogged a boy behind the bike sheds.

3. Their exact type.


You'll know as soon as you meet someone whether they'll fancy them. And you'll make sure to inform them.

"The checkout guy at the supermarket today was ginger but with a slight tan, you would have wet your knickers."


6. What they're like around new people vs. What they're like after they've known someone for ages.


You know how they try (and fail) to impress people, including all their best funny stories and how they exaggerate them to make them better. And you know how gross they can be when they just don't give a shit anymore.

7. What they're like at all the stages of drunk.

You know how much they need to drink to think they look like Beyoncé on the dance floor, you can tell when they're about to puke, and you know that tequila makes them into a little bitch.


10. What their life goals are.

You'll know if they want to be a high-powered super-lawyer, or if they're desperate to settle down and have all the babies. Or if all they want to do is break the world record for most hot dogs eaten in one minute.


21. You know them well enough now that you can practically speak for them.


You usually know what they'd order in a restaurant, and you'll know if they're actually going to be attending that event, or if they'll bail at the last minute.
