10 Signs Your Best Friend Is Your Soulmate

10 Signs Your Best Friend Is Your Soulmate

You can stop looking now.

Regardless of whether or not you’re currently in a relationship, your best friend might be your true soul mate. No, a soul mate doesn’t have to be the other half in a romantic relationship. It's true that a soul mate is your other half, but that doesn’t mean you have to be in love with them. It’s when two souls just understand each other. You feel a connection with that person that you’ve never felt with anyone else before. You feel as though someone finally understands. Here are some signs that your BFF might be this person:

  • They can tell by your texts that you’re not all right, and they have no problem calling you out on it. You can’t hide your emotions from them- you could see them for five minutes and they’d instantly know your mood is altered, no matter how hard you try and fake happiness.
  • You want them to be happy, just as much as they want you to be happy. You’d do anything to make them smile, even if it means sacrificing your own comfort or happiness, and you know they’d totally do the same for you.

  • They’re your ride-along buddy, your permanent shotgun passenger, your navigator and DJ. They know what songs you love and what songs are completely off limits. They know when to tell you to stop for coffee or fast food. They’re always down for an adventure and probably love the same places as you anyway.
  • You probably finish each other’s sentences, or read each other’s minds- but not in a creepy way. You just always have the same ideas and thought-process. You both point out the weird stuff in a movie or laugh at the same corny jokes. “OMG, I was just going to say that” is a common line in your friendship.
  • You can be yourself. You can be completely weird, loud, crazy, drunk, whatever, and you’re finally comfortable acting that way around someone for once. They don’t judge you for the strange things you do, or for wanting to be wild and crazy one night. They accept you for who you are, and love you even more for it.
  • You basically live together. Your home is their home, and vice versa. They’re the person you call when you’re already outside of their house. Their parents don’t even flinch when you walk through the door without knocking. You make yourself at home because you’re welcome to. You live there, too. You’re apart of the family and probably have designated seats on the couch or a designated bedroom to sleep in.
  • You have “inside jokes”, or little sayings and phrases that no one else understands, but you state them loud and proud publicly and die of laughter afterward.
  • You know each other’s Starbucks orders and lunch orders by heart and never ask if they want anything, you just assume they do and they assume you picked them up something, anyway.
  • It’s a give and take. You never take advantage of each other’s offerings and always repay them when you can. You let them know how much you appreciate them and they do the same for you.
  • They know exactly what makes you laugh and smile and they know exactly what you love to do, and have no problem supporting you in your ventures because they just understand you.

14 Things You Relate To If You Grew Up WithOUT Any Cousins

*GASP* "What, you really don't have any cousins?"


It always shocks every person who hears me state that I do not have any cousins. For some reason, this is just hard for people to really believe when it's actually not something impossible. I think we are all just so used to large families that it sounds weird when people say that they have no cousins. Yet, it is definitely a potential reality, and actually impossible if each of your parents is the only child to your grandparents.

Here are 14 things that you can relate to if you grew up without any cousins.

1. Nobody believes you when you say that you don't have any cousins

I'm serious, for the tenth time.

2. Your grandparents spoil you

With no other grandchildren to worry about, it's pretty easy to do.

3. You don't understand when people say that cousins are your first best friends

My best friend was my first best friend.

4. You and your siblings are always the youngest people at family events

This was simultaneosuly a good thing and a bad thing.

5. You get all of the attention at holidays

Since you're the youngest one around, then distant relatives are always doting over you.

6. Everything you do is deemed awesome by your extended family because there is nobody to compete with

It's much easier to be praised when you aren't being compared to someone similar to your age.

7. You don't know how to hold babies

You're never around them so why would you?

8. Family photos are pretty easy to coordinate

The less people, the easier.

9. Other family members spoil you just because 

Afterall, you are the only kid around...

10. The family will make comments regarding the potential for you to have a cousin as a justification for why they aren't doing something for you

When you hear, "I can't buy you too much because someday your aunt is going to have kids and I will have to do the same for them" you cringe and just had to know that all of the attention wouldn't last forever.

11. Birthdays are always a big deal

A perk of not having very many to remember.

12. If your parents' siblings own pets, then you refer to the animal as your cousin

Cat cousins, dog cousins, lizard cousins, and fish cousins can be pretty cool, actually.

13. Sometimes you dream of marrying into a big family

This is to ensure that your kids do grow up with cousins.

14. You appreciate the closeness of your tight-knit fam

Maybe the only thing you would miss if you had a big family is the opportunity to develop such close bonds with the few relatives that you do have.
