    19 Relatable Things You And Your College BFF Definitely Experienced

    Friends for four years...then forever.

    1. You ate together. Like A LOT.

    Warner Bros.

    At the cafeteria for Taco Bell at 3 a.m...basically anywhere and often.

    2. You were expert-level good at relating a PG-rated version of your college experiences to your BFF's parents.


    3. You probably lived together, yet somehow remained friends.

    You learned something super annoying about your BFF — like that they never do the dishes or play loud music WAY too early — but you learned to deal.

    4. If your BFF's boyfriend or girlfriend knew how much you knew about them, they would've been horrified.


    Deets from inside and outside the bedroom.

    5. Kicking up the awkwardness a scosh — you probably (OK, definitely) heard your BFF having sex.


    If not sex, you were way too close to a makeout session.

    6. You totally took care of each other when you got wasted.

    Holding their hair when they threw up? Check. Getting them back to their room safely? Check. Leaving a jumbo bottle of water on their bedside table? Check.

    7. Most of your Instagrams were either taken by your BFF or feature them.

    But the BEST Instagrams were the ones you were in together.

    8. You can probably think of at least one instance when their bad influence directly lead to you getting a worse grade than you hoped for. / Via Creative Commons

    9. But they also helped you hunker down and get serious when you needed to.


    I mean, sort of serious.

    10. You took at least one trip together — on spring break, to see your college football team on the road, or just to...go!

    11. You heard so many stories from your BFF's life before college that you feel like you were there too.


    And if you went home with them you kind of felt like you'd been there before.

    12. You probably made big plans together that you now find a little embarrassing in hindsight.

    Remember the week and a half you were going to start a band? Or, er, when you were going to launch an app? Or a YouTube channel? Yeah...

    13. You texted each other pretty much all day long.

    You even texted each other when you were together. "Hey, Frank is being lame. Should we bail?"

    14. You were OK with being your 100% weirdo self in front of your BFF, and totally accepting of their weirdness too.

    You probably spoke to each other in silly voices and pulled faces. Weird, weird faces.

    15. You sometimes made crazily impulsive decisions, like deciding to dye each other's hair.

    Usually because you were just bored.

    16. You understood each other so well you could communicate entire conversations through glances.


    Good talk.

    17. You supported each other in whatever you did — WHATEVER you did.

    DJ gig? You were there! Improv troupe? You were there! intramural lacrosse? You were there! Some boring presentation that had you fighting to stay awake? You were there!

    18. You were brutally honest with each other in a way you are with few others.


    And you honestly appreciated it — especially because they never let you head out wearing something that did. not. look. good.

    19. And finally, at the end of your four years together, you knew you'd made a best friend for life.
