23 Things That Happen When Two Girls Live Together

It's mostly eating, drinking, and pulling hair out of the drain.

1. You get into a habit of removing your bras the moment you get home from work.

Given the choice, why wouldn't you free your boobs?

2. And you find getting ready for a big night the most fun part of going out.

Singing along to '90s music, drinking wine in the shower, and borrowing each other's makeup is legit the most fun thing about going out.

3. Of course, climbing into bed together for a gossip and a bitch the next morning is the best part of being hungover.

4. But tbh you much prefer staying in to going out these days.

There's nothing nicer than cooking a cosy meal with your housemate and then watching back-to-back episodes of Sex and the City.

5. And you've definitely cancelled plans with other friends in favour of staying in with your housemate before now.

Sometimes you just want to eat crisps in your PJs, and that's OK.

6. You've hosted some pretty good house parties in your time.

And even though cleaning up the next day is always boring, knowing that you can host a successful party makes you feel very accomplished.

7. Seeing each other naked no longer phases you.

Whether you needed your housemate to fake-tan your back, or you just forgot your towel when you went to shower, you've seen each other nude a million times.

8. And neither does making small talk with your housemate's ~guests~.

You've got your breakfast interrogation routine down to a tee, and you bust it out every time your housemate has someone new staying over.

9. You've become very adept at unblocking drains.

10. And the two of you can clean a house before one of your parents comes to visit in under half an hour.

If one of you works on floors, and the other scrubs the bathroom and lights a load of candles, you'll be fine.

11. But you really excel when it comes to the 100% gross problems, like bathroom mould or kitchen mice.

You deal with these problems as a team, and somehow it all works out.

12. There are days when you spend hours messaging each other about what to make for dinner.

Work goes more quickly when you know what you'll be eating later.

13. And there are also days when you get home and immediately order a Papa John's.

You know each other's favourite takeaway orders off by heart.

14. There are also days when you eat so much you have to undo your jeans and lie horizontally to digest.

You'd never let anyone else see you like that, but your housemate never judges you.

15. And you never judge how long your housemate goes without showering, shaving, or washing her bedding.

Housemates are there to make a home, not to be mean.

16. You know that spending an entire day wrapped up in a duvet is perfectly reasonable.

Duvet days are the best days.

17. And you know exactly which foods to buy when your housemate starts clutching her ovaries and cursing all men.

18. Your freezer is always jam-packed full of hangover cures.

Hash browns. It's full of hash browns.

19. But you've gone on your fair share of ill-fated health kicks together too.

You might have even invested in an Argos juicer if you were really serious about getting healthy.

20. You've developed a weekend TV routine.

MTV

You occasionally venture out into new shows on Netflix, but mostly you're all about Desperate Housewives re-runs.

21. You analyse texts, rehearse difficult conversations, and give out compliments on cue.

MTV

"He's saying he doesn't have time to see you, you need to tell him to get in the bin, and you're a million times more beautiful than he is."

22. You know that you can borrow anything of hers, as long as you return it or replace it.

NBC

If you need her top and she's not around to ask, it's safe to assume you can just use it for 24 hours. And if you need a bar of chocolate and you don't have the energy to walk to the shop, it's OK to just replace it tomorrow.

23. Because living together means you're there for each other through everything. Even the most banal conversations.

Anyone who can listen to your hungover chat without moaning is a friend for life.
