#3 They are automatically your +1. Got an invitation to a wedding, party, baby shower, housewarming, or little Haley’s graduation? No matter what the occasion, or how well you know the host, your plus one has already been determined. Whew! That’s one less thing to worry about. Why bother even looking for a date? I mean, you’re obviously bringing your best friend. Duh.
#4 You’ve become the green-eyed monster. If your BFF made plans that don’t involve you, or makes a new friend and you become a jealous freak, you may want to re-examine what you’re jealous of. Is it the plans, or that your BFF wants to hang out with someone who isn’t you? Either way, you’re jealous for a reason, and you should probably decipher why that is before you start looking like a crazy person.
#5 You talk all day long. We mean *all* day. You exchange “good morning” texts, call or text throughout the day detailing work life and the bad-breath monster you were trapped with on the elevator, and you finish off the day with an obligatory night-time phone call or goodnight text. This is way more than just close friends. This is entering lover territory.
#6 You have fights that feel like breakups. If you and your bestie have had a fight that felt more like a breakup, then things have definitely taken a romantic turn. Sure, we all have intense fights with friends from time to time, but if this particular fight leaves you with knots in your stomach, makes you cry, or results in a getting-back-together-like reunion, you may be closer to coupledom than you think.
