10 Signs Your Best Friend Knows You Better Than You Know Yourself


Having a close friend you can count on is truly special. As well as sharing your triumphs and failures, a best friend is one of the few people who knows you inside out, and loves you regardless. Here are 10 signs you’ve found a best friend who knows you better than you know yourself!

1. They know every phase of your drunken Friday night self…

From the ‘finding everything hilarious’ stage to the uncontrollable sobbing at 3am, your best friend knows every phase of your drunken self, and they’re well equipped to deal with each one. And when you go off by yourself in the club, they know exactly where to find you.

2. They completely understand your sense of humour…

They know which jokes you find funny, and which you wouldn’t bat an eyelid at. Most importantly, they’re one of the very few people that can make you laugh until your stomach aches.

3. They know the passcode to your phone…

Your best friend is probably one of the only people who know the passcode to your phone. And you have absolutely no problem with them snatching your mobile off you right before a drunk texting session.

4. They know instantly when something’s bugging you…

Unlike other people, your best friend can tell when something’s up. They don’t even need to ask, they just know from how you’re acting that you’re not okay. And whatever it is, you know that they’ll be ready and waiting with a glass of wine when you want to talk it through.

5. They know every detail of your character and personal life…

More than anyone else, your best friend knows everything there is to know about you. Your star sign, favourite music, the name of your mum’s cousin’s dog. The whole lot. Even stuff from your past that you might have forgotten, they remember.

6. They can spot when someone isn’t right for you…

A true best friend knows exactly what your type is, what kind of person you click with and what you look for in a potential partner. They can also tell who’s right for you and who isn’t. They can see right through all the bad guys even when you can’t, and in the end, they’re always right.

7. They know exactly how to cheer you up after a horrible day…

One of the telltale signs that your best friend truly cares about you is when they know your comforts and habits. If you’ve had a particularly bad day, they know exactly what to do to have you feeling like yourself again. Even when you aren’t sure how to cheer yourself up, they’ll have a plan to get you smiling again.

8. They regularly finish your sentences for you…

Ever lost your train of thought and stopped mid-sentence? Chances are, your best friend knows exactly how that sentence was going to finish. It’s like they can read your mind. They’ve spent so much time around you that they recognise your thought patterns and know what you’re going to say before you say it.

9. They know what you’re going to order before you do…

However diverse the menu, your best friend will know exactly what you’re going to order before you’ve even reached the end of the first page. They’re telepathic like that.

10. They know your wardrobe inside out…

They know your favourite styles, colours and go-to looks. If you ask them to help you shop for an outfit online, they know exactly where to start. They might as well be your personal shopper.
