1. One solitary moment of eye contact.
Even if it’s a nano-second, one small look from your BFF and suddenly, you understand everything. It’s kind of like you have this badass superpower, all telepathic and shit. Your eyes lock and BAM, you know what they’re thinking. You’ve basically had an entire conversation within a few seconds.
2. Small change in tone.
Certain people are incredibly perceptive to even the tiniest changes in body language, tone, etc. But with your BFF, oh, it’s maximized. A crack in their voice, a break, up or down an octave, YOU WILL NOTICE. And you’ll know it means something is up.
3. Knowing they mean the exact opposite of what they just said.
Best friends cannot lie to each other. Because A) you shouldn’t want to lie to your best friend and B) YOU WILL NOT GET AWAY WITH IT. The rest of the world may be fooled, but your BFF knows you far too well.
4. TEXTING IN ALL CAPS.
WHEN YOU SAY THINGS LIKE, “HEY YOU BITCH, I MISS YOU.” AND THEY WON’T GET MAD. AND YOU JUST KEEP MESSAGING LIKE THIS. IT FEELS A LOT LIKE YELLING, BUT THEY GET YOU ARE YELLING WITH LOVE.
5. Not even looking at each other, but knowing what they’re thinking.
Particularly if you were ever in class together. You became pros at never looking at one another, but still *feeling* them from a distance. Something ridiculous would happen and you couldn’t possibly look their way because you would both instantly die from laughter. But without even looking, you still knew the other one was suppressing giggles.
6. Complete gibberish.
Maybe you’re exhausted. Maybe you’re drunk. Maybe you don’t have an excuse as to why you can’t form complete sentences. Doesn’t really matter. You both speak gibberish fluently when you’re together.
7. Clothing choice.
They know what it means when you wear that one big oversized grey sweatshirt. And they will be over with ice cream and B-list romcoms, STAT.
