My bestie and I met when we were 7, and even though we don’t even live on the same continent anymore, not much has changed between us. At a certain point, a person is more family than friend, and equally as impossible to shake – not that we’d ever want to.
If you’ve had a best friend for a very long time, these 15 things will make total sense.
If not, well, I’m sure your friends are just fine.
#15. Your parents are her parents, and vice versa.
In high school, you sometimes forgot whose house was whose.
#14. You can bitch about anyone in your life because they know everyone, too.
That one lady from work that you went to happy hour with once? Yep, her too.
#13. The fact that you’ve been friends so long is both awesome and depressing.
Over 30 years now, here.
#12. You know you’ll be friends forever.
We’re already making plans to live Golden Girls-style when we inevitably outlive our husbands.
#11. Honesty is the best policy.
You can say brutally honest things to each other and still come out closer than ever.
#10. You probably met when you looked something like this…

If you can love each other like this, nothing can phase you.
#9. No topic is off limits.
#8. You have so many inside jokes you could win a game of ‘Taboo’ without breaking a sweat.
And you don’t ever need another teammate, ever.
#7. They know your entire history.
It saves a lot of time when you want to talk about the past.
#6. You’ve got a ton of blackmail material.
Not that you would ever use it, but you know it’s there.
#5. There’s no one you’d rather discuss your Tinder dates with.
What even are men thinking?
#4. You can (and do) fight, but you both know it’s not a big deal.
It would take way too long to break in a new friend.
#3. You make each other laugh, sometimes over nothing at all.
It just feels right.
#2. You can talk about everything, but you don’t always have to.
There’s no one you’d rather sit next to, both scrolling through your phones.
#1. You never get tired of each other.
In high school, your parents told you to “take a break,” so you went home for a few hours, took a nap and a shower, and got together again.
