You show your love for each other with playful insults instead of the soppy stuff.
And in no place is this clearer than in your text messages.
You can't remember the last time you voluntarily hugged each other, unless it was to get on the other one's nerves.
Which is totally OK because you show your love in other ways.
You enjoy scoffing at gushy couples obsessed with PDA.
And you're equally annoyed by people crying on TV.
Because your icy souls do not allow such flagrant displays of emotion.
You're both terrible in serious situations, so you resort to making each other laugh instead.
Because you speak less in "feels" and more in laughter and jokes.
You take it as a personal attack when either of you says or does something cute that could possibly make the other cry.
Because you both know how "great" you are at comforting a weeping person.
But since you're kindred spirits, you know exactly what to do when one of you is feeling strangely emotional.
When it comes to birthdays, you're not the type to write long, heartfelt messages on each other's Instagram pages.
It's more of a low-key love affair.
And your birthday present will probably look more like this.
Although it's undeniable that you love each other, saying "I love you" out loud is a rare occurrence.
And when you try to be earnest about your feelings, you usually do it in an awkward, roundabout way.
Unless you're both drunk, in which case it's perfectly acceptable to pour out your feelings to each other.
In fact, the lack of affection in your friendship can sometimes make it look like you don't really like each other very much at all.
But despite other people's confusion, the fact you're both essentially dead inside is part of the reason why you're BFFs.
Because even though you hate feelings, your BFF is the only one who's seen you at your most vulnerable.
Which means you have no choice but to be friends forever 💕
