Just because you and your boyfriend spend all your time together doesn't mean he is your best friend. They can go out to eat together, stay at home watching movies curled up in each other; However, being a best friend implies much more understanding and acceptance. It goes beyond holding hands when they go for a walk.
You know who that person really is and you want him because he makes you better. They are together because you feel more complete in their presence. You could not imagine making decisions without asking for their point of view. When you have a best friend, you just can't imagine what it would be like not to have him by your side. There are signs, beyond the “duties” of boyfriend, that can make you discover that you have your best friend in him too.
1. He is the first person to whom you send a selfie ridiculous
Whether it's an interesting post or a Snapchat "I'm bored", your boyfriend is the first person you plan to send him to. Even when you feel you can mess up your silly internet findings, he always wants you to bother him. He doesn't care how ridiculous you look in that picture you sent him of look-I'm-eating-a-sandwich!
2. You can be in your pajamas all day, with messy hair and no makeup, and not feel uncomfortable
Even if you don't look or feel your best, you know that your boyfriend will never judge you by your appearance. You don't have to dress for him or feel that you should always be fixed. He is happy to see you comfortable, natural, and being yourself.
3. Do not bother when the accounts are split or eat from each other's plate
You are so close that it doesn't matter who pays what, and what is his is also yours, and yours is also his. The same applies at mealtime, they are not bothered at all to share their plate of food, or their sleeping shirts.
4. He likes to listen to even the most insignificant things of your day
While it is about you, it will be fascinating to hear that "at work they asked us not to miss the Christmas meeting … and then I walked down the street and stopped to buy the book I wanted." Surely he will answer something like: “Wow, baby, that's amazing! I don't know how you manage to do everything! ”
5. An infinite amount of jokes are made
The two practically speak their own language. They have fun putting on playful nicknames that derive from the experiences they have lived in the time they have been together.
Sometimes you feel it's just you and him in the world.
6. They stay talking for hours and hours
It's not like those talks you had in the fun pajamas you went to when you were a child. You stay talking for hours about everything, from your favorite theories to rumors about a common acquaintance or reflections on life.
It doesn't matter if you have to get up early to go to work, unveiling together is absolutely worth it.
7. They have fights and immediately forget them
It is almost impossible to be angry with him when after an argument he arrives with flowers to apologize. Their discussions mean nothing compared to how much they love each other.
8. Your love becomes evident during those ridiculous moments together
Dance moving your hands inside the car while listening to a cheesy Taylor Swift song, getting drunk and later dancing ridiculously that song that sounds on the radio; Send millions of text messages just because they can and want to do it, they are silly moments that bring out the best in you and your boyfriend. In fact, you feel very fortunate to have found a person who appreciates your version of the robot dance.
9. The disgusting things they do don't matter
Either one can wear the same sports pants throughout the weekend and they won't even notice. They can decide not to wash their hair, or comb their hair. Having conversations through the bathroom door is completely normal. He is your best friend and there is virtually nothing out of bounds.
10. He understands you when you are in “your days”
– ”I am having a terrible colic. Forgive me if I spoil your day, but my period has turned me into a monster that sheds blood. ”
– "Don't worry, baby, it's not your period, it's our period!"
11. You can tell him anything without fear
You know that he will not judge you, will not make conclusions or use it against you in the future. The difference between being simply a boyfriend and a best friend is also that you are able to tell him anything, however difficult it may be. It doesn't matter if it's embarrassing, terrible, dirty or amazing.
12. They play by becoming "tender evils"
You don't take it personal when it scares you while holding a cup of hot coffee, because you know you'll take revenge by hiding your cell phone charger. They share the same sense of humor and are in tune when it comes to having fun. And they definitely make family dinners more interesting.
13. He reassures you
We all go through difficult times when we cannot think clearly and feel that we fall through a kind of hole. In these cases he cares enough to sustain you. He is not afraid to intervene when you cannot trust your instincts. He always wants the best for you and therefore knows how to calm you down.
