    19 Slightly Awkward Things You Do If You're Obsessed With Your Friends

    You have absolutely no chill about your friendships, and that's OK.

    1. Here's the thing. You don't just like your friends – you love them so much it's kind of embarrassing. / Via

    You're obsessed. You can't help it. Because your friends are so fucking good.

    2. When you first become obsessed with a friend, you go for a thorough stalk of all their social media.

    "Wow, they looked so beautiful at that school dance eight years ago."

    3. And you have absolutely no chill about showing your love for each and every photo of their lives.

    They're so good at Instagram. And everything else they do.

    4. Your praise for them can get a little over the top.


    They're amazing and they need to know.

    5. If you have the app Find Friends, you definitely check in on their whereabouts.

    i always stalk my friends locations bc im obsessed with every single one of them theyre so cool i love them

    6. You know all about their struggles and exactly what time of day they need what kind of encouragement.

    "I remember you said you were worried about the meeting at 11:45 today so just wanted to check how it went."

    7. You always let them know when you're thinking about how much you love them.

    In a slightly creepy, but definitely platonic way.

    8. If something awkward happens to your friend, you will do anything to protect them from embarrassment, even if it means embarrassing yourself in the process.

    If they farted in front of their crush you would stand and say "NAY, TWAS I THAT BROKE WIND" so they could save face.

    9. If they need a favour, like getting food when they're sick, you are on it before they even ask.


    10. You don't cope very well when you're far away from your friend.

    You have to tell them everything that's happening to you, and find out everything they're up to.

    11. Their birthday is a really emotional time for you.

    You care about it more than your own birthday.

    12. You've probably given your friend a really over-the-top gift.

    It probably took a lot of time, effort, and planning – which you were willing to spend because you just fucking love them so much.

    13. You've probably taken a picture of them sleeping.

    They look so peaceful and angelic when they sleep. You can't wait to show them when they wake up.

    14. You know that their other friends will never love them as much as you do.

    Yes, it's a competition.

    15. You make a very good personal cheerleader.

    16. If they have a big challenge ahead of them, you'll send encouragement at all hours of the day and night.

    And not just a text: they obviously need a phone call, a snapchat, and even a supportive Instagram.

    17. You have actually cried because you're so proud of them before.

    Oh my god they've worked so hard for this and now they're so good at the bassoon.

    18. And when they say something you laugh a liiiiiittle too hard.


    They're so funny and perfect oh my god, how did they even think of such a funny thing to say.

    19. But no matter what they do, you want the world to know how fucking brilliant they are.

    "Not only are they beautiful on the outside, but they also have a wonderful personality, and won a talent show when they were 15 years old, oh and also they're an accomplished athlete, and I AM THEIR BIGGEST FAN."
