You've long since lost your sense of disgust with one another, and each of your mothers considers you a part of their family.

1. You have all sorts of embarrassing pictures together.

There's a stupid number of photos of the two of you together and most of them are ridiculous. There's everything from the time you were in a play together as kids to your emo stage in high school

2. You have thousands of stories from your lives together.

You have a great story from last week, and one from ten years ago that you like to tell over and over again. And if you can't remember certain parts of it, your BFF is there to fill in all the details.

3. You've lost all sense of disgust with one another.

You first saw your BFF barf in elementary school after they gorged on candy, and you last saw them barf a couple weeks ago after having a few too many drinks. Obviously nothing about them grosses you out anymore.


5. You consider yourself a part of their family and vice-versa.


Even your BFF's aunts and uncles feel like yours. And honestly, you're pretty sure your mom loves your best friend more than she loves you.

7. It's impossible for you to lie to one another.


You can tell immediately when your BFF is trying to hide something from you because you've known their tells since forever. It actually makes it hard for you two to surprise one another as well.


9. You can list every single one of their exes.

And they know all of yours too. You probably love reminding one another about all those horrible stories that used to feel awful but are just funny now.


13. You're never too embarrassed to be goofy around one another.


Even if you're completely serious and respectable in your day-to-day life, when you're around your best friend, you turn into the funniest goofball out there.

14. Even if you haven't seen each other in a long time, it always feels like you just talked to them the day before.


Time means nothing to you two, because you have such strong chemistry and so many good memories together, you always pick up right where you left off.

15. Your BFF is the only person who knows all your secrets.


You've had a lot of other friends growing up, but your bestie is the only person who knows everything about you. (Seriously, e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g.)

17. And even if you choose different paths in life, you'll always be together, and you'll always be there for one another.
