21 Signs Your Mom Is Actually Your Best Friend

She's the Lorelai to your Rory.

We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us the greatest thing about being best friends with your mom. Here are their heartwarming responses:

1. Your mom is, without a doubt, the Lorelai to your Rory.

2. Knowing you can call your mom any time, day or night, is the most comforting thing in the world.


3. And being able to tell her everything without fear of judgment is the biggest relief ever.

4. Seriously, you tell her secrets you can't tell anyone else, and you know she'll never say a word.

5. Most of the time, though, you don't even need words because you can communicate entirely with facial expressions.

6. Having been around the block before, she's full of great advice on everything from work to relationships to money.

7. Whenever you feel like giving up, she's the cheerleader on the sidelines motivating you to keep on going.

8. Like most best friends, you don't see eye to eye on everything, but you always accept each other's differences.

9. And, try as you might, you never seem to be able to hold a grudge against her for more than a few minutes.

10. Instead of going out on the weekends, you're more than happy to stay in with your mom and watch your favorite TV shows...

11. ...and you can probably quote them to each other like nobody's business.

12. When you feel like the whole world's against you, she’ll always be on your side, and she’ll defend you to the bitter end.

13. She's your rock, and you know you'd be lost without her.

14. When you need help, she goes above and beyond to give you the support you need.

15. You have years' worth of inside jokes, and there's no stopping you when one of you starts laughing.

16. Maybe you even share clothes with each other, doubling the size of your wardrobe.

17. She gets you when no one else does.

18. And she accepts you just as you are, never making you feel out of place.

19. Maybe that's because she knows you better than you know yourself, and she always has your best interests at heart.

20. At the end of the day, you know she's always there to give you a hug and pick you back up.

21. Eventually, you realize you're becoming just like her, and you wouldn't have it any other way.
