    Sometimes the gossip is too good to pause while one of you does a wee.

    2. But also pee in the same room when you're at each other's houses.


    If you're getting ready for a night out in the bathroom and one of you suddenly needs the loo, there's no point in the other one going outside.

    3. Borrow each other's tights, pants, and socks without a moment's hesitation.


    You're basically the same person, so you see nothing wrong with sharing personal items.

    4. But also borrow each other's toiletries without batting an eyelid.

    You also don't have a problem sharing deodorant or razors.

    5. Boast about how hairy your legs have got.


    There's nothing wrong with making your BFF feel how prickly your legs have become.

    6. Fail to engage in actual conversation because one of you needs to rant about something.

    A true friend will tolerate you ranting for 45 minutes without asking how they are.

    7. Lie beside each other, on the floor, with your trouser zip undone because you've eaten so much food.


    There's absolutely nothing wrong with eating until the point of sickness.

    8. Keep each other company while the other one gets changed.

    9. Compose romantic, and sometimes even sexy, texts on behalf of each other.

    A true friend will help you articulate exactly how you felt about last night.

    10. Check each other's job applications, tax returns, and armpits without even a moment's hesitation.

    It's extra fun if you both get your period on the same day.

    16. Text each other when someone upsets you and expect to receive a list of their bad qualities in return.

    You: "Kate has been really mean to me at work." Your BFF: "Maybe she's just upset because she doesn't have a chin."

    17. Routinely stalk everyone you have ever snogged on social media for no reason other than curiosity.
