*smiles knowingly* "Let's just...stay at home."

1. You both delight in the idea of staying home and cuddling up on the sofa.

Your ideal Friday night involves someone's house, some comfy blankets and a good bit of gossip.

2. And you'd much rather a good cup of tea than alcohol any day.

"I'll put the kettle on" is like music to your ears.

3. Unless it's a nice, sweet glass of wine. You can handle that.

But no vodka. Never vodka.

4. Neither of you really like loud noises, so you avoid clubs whenever you can.

CBS

Nothing's worse than queuing up in the cold, sweating in a club, and watching the time slowly tick by for 4 hours.

5. But if you have to go out, you take a secret pleasure in complaining to each other about how you'd much rather be at home.

"I have a good idea, shall we just go home?"

6. You regularly call each other grannies and neither of you really get offended by it.

At this point "you're such a granny" is kind of a compliment.

7. You've already fantasised about what you'd both be like as old people.

Chatting about what your granny selves would do and how excited you are to get older is a regular occurrence.

8. You're both as terrible as each other when it comes to technology and keeping up with the internet.

"What does this word mean?" "No idea" "Dammit, I was hoping you'd know."

9. You're really, really bad at knowing the lyrics to songs.

Pray for my sister.. Ain't nothin wrong with her she just thinks the song goes "hotline blink" ..😫😭 stupid ass

But it's funny anyway.

10. At a sleepover, neither of you can last past midnight.

And you both usually fall asleep watching a film.

11. And you're both known to end text conversations with "it's way past my bedtime."

I'm a grandma by heart ❤️ @TaylorThomm

12. Napping is your second favourite activity to do as a team.

13. But your ultimate favourite is anything that involves food.

14. You just generally enjoy anything that doesn't involve too much ~drama~.

Spontaneity is only fine if it means spontaneously deciding not to go out.

15. You relish in describing anyone slightly younger than yourselves as looking "about 12."

And tend to find young people very irritating.

16. Terrible reality TV shows are kind of "your jam".

NBC / Via bustle.com

You love sitting together and watching Real Housewives while giving hilarious commentary.

17. You're accustomed to seeing each other in comfortable clothes and practical shoes.

"Why would I ever wear heels when I could wear slippers...in bed...?"

18. Which is why you'll never understand why people wear shorts when its clearly freezing.

Because in New Orleans, of course you have winter shorts

"I'm shivering just looking at her!" you say to one another, wrapped in your ginormous scarves.

19. You send each other regular updates and screenshots of your pets' behaviour.

And it's not strange at all because everyone knows cats are basically people.

20. Your friendship is largely built upon the fact you find everyone, except each other, mildly irritating.

21. And despite seeming "boring" to other people your age, all that matters to you both is your bed and your best friend.
