1. YOU TEXT ALL DAY
You text each other all day and it runs into the night. Sometimes, all night. Basically your day starts with your friend and ends on your friend.
2. COMMUNICATION IS KICK-ASS
Good things, bad things, happy things, sad things. You talk about everything under the sun. Expression is your middle name.
3. YOU SHOP TOGETHER
You know each other’s taste in clothes, shoes and everything one needs to know. Even if you are not shopping together, you pick up stuff for each other.
4. SPONTANEOUS PLANS
You just need an excuse to meet each other. On the days you don’t have an excuse to meet, you still end up meeting each other.
5. YOU PLOT REVENGE TOGETHER
When your friend is going through a rough patch with his or her boss or superior, you are busy plotting revenge. You share ideas and laugh over them (and then act on them).
6. YOU FINISH EACH OTHER’S SENTENCES
Since you spend so much time with each other, you know what the other person is thinking. This makes it easier for you to guess what they will say.
7. THEIR PARENTS CALL YOU TO KNOW THEIR WHEREABOUTS
You know each other’s history (and more importantly geography) so well that their parents call you the moment they can’t get through to them. Maybe, you are in their speed dial list as well. A great signal, by the way.
8. YOU LOVE THEIR QUIRKS
You know their quirks, accept them and love them. This is your ‘best friend’ we are talking about. You have a similar sense of humor so it works well for the two of you.
9. THEY IRRITATE YOU SOMETIMES
They piss you off at times, but then it’s a part and parcel of having such a solid, unique and awesome friendship.
10. THEY ARE GENUINELY HAPPY FOR YOU
They are genuinely happy with your success just like they are genuinely sad with your failure. As long as they support you, you can conquer the world.
We suggest you hold on to such a friend if you have one. Moving on to the next level is totally up to you. And as Mr. Sharukh Khan famously once said “Pyaar Dosti Hai”!!
