    4. You can hold a conversation without uttering a single word.

    5. Something will happen, and at the same time, you'll both say to each other, "Remember that time...?", and then dissolve into laughter.

    6. In fact, you'll often both say the same thing at the same time.

    7. Because you're both always on the same wavelength.

    8. You know that there are some things that you can tease them about...

    9. You know all of each other's flaws and weird habits that no one else sees.

    10. You can go two months without speaking and it's like no time has passed.

    11. And you both know that even if you lived in different states, you'd still be just as close.

    12. You can tell them literally anything without fear of judgement.

    13. You have strange nicknames for each other.

    14. You insult each other on a regular basis.
