    22 Things You'll Understand If You And Your Best Friend Hate Feelings

    "I love you." "Ew. Stop."

    1. You show your love for each other with playful insults instead of the soppy stuff.


    Soppiness is way overrated anyway.

    2. And in no place is this clearer than in your text messages.

    There's no greater love than the love that is unspoken, and largely based around food.

    3. You can't remember the last time you voluntarily hugged each other, unless it was to get on the other one's nerves.


    "Aw, come here." "Stay away from me!" "I just want a hug..." "NO."

    4. Which is totally OK because you show your love in other ways.

    5. You enjoy scoffing at gushy couples obsessed with PDA.

    "Hello, young couple over there. We understand you're in love, but please, spare a thought for those who just ate."

    6. And you're equally annoyed by people crying on TV.

    Watching The X Factor or The Voice is just an excuse for the two of you to complain about all the unnecessary weeping.

    7. Because your icy souls do not allow such flagrant displays of emotion.


    8. You're both terrible in serious situations, so you resort to making each other laugh instead.

    "Omg stop, this is supposed to be really sad, we shouldn't be laughing!"

    9. Because you speak less in "feels" and more in laughter and jokes.

    10. You take it as a personal attack when either of you says or does something cute that could possibly make the other cry.



    11. Because you both know how "great" you are at comforting a weeping person.


    AKA not great at all.

    12. But since you're kindred spirits, you know exactly what to do when one of you is feeling strangely emotional.


    Because no one likes to be in their feelings for too long.

    13. When it comes to birthdays, you're not the type to write long, heartfelt messages on each other's Instagram pages.

    14. It's more of a low-key love affair.

    15. And your birthday present will probably look more like this.

    Who has time for extravagant presents and massive cards?! The real present is MY FRIENDSHIP.

    16. Although it's undeniable that you love each other, saying "I love you" out loud is a rare occurrence.



    17. And when you try to be earnest about your feelings, you usually do it in an awkward, roundabout way.


    "You're like...OK. I guess. Whatever."

    18. Unless you're both drunk, in which case it's perfectly acceptable to pour out your feelings to each other.


    19. 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.

    20. But despite other people's confusion, the fact you're both essentially dead inside is part of the reason why you're BFFs.


    21. Because even though you hate feelings, your BFF is the only one who's seen you at your most vulnerable.

    If there's one person you've actually cried in front of, it's probably them.

    22. Which means you have no choice but to be friends forever 💕

    You have to protect your secret that you actually do have feelings somehow.
