11 Signs That You're Dating Your Best Friend
Vladimir Kudinov

Dating is great. Suddenly, you have this new person to try new restaurants with, to steal flannels from, or to cuddle when it gets cold outside. Sappy stuff aside, however, it's important to date someone you genuinely like, apart from the romantic whirlwind. It's definitely a cliche, but it's solid advice — fall in love with your best friend.

Here are 11 different signs you may have already found that person!

1. You have an abundance of inside jokes.

So many that often times when other people hear your conversations, they're extremely lost amidst references that no one else could begin to understand.

2. Car rides are never boring.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F29%2F636159953689749879-377645484_636159937758962328-1945090553_Car.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=790&h=3d6a159c28f417e003152999c42c492d1b45e42f6b61039ff35c7fe63ac0a3c2&size=980x&c=1065399246 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F29%252F636159953689749879-377645484_636159937758962328-1945090553_Car.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D790%26h%3D3d6a159c28f417e003152999c42c492d1b45e42f6b61039ff35c7fe63ac0a3c2%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1065399246%22%7D" expand=1]

Whether it's jamming to Backstreet Boys or having long conversations about serious topics, for some reason, car rides are always a fun time. There's also something to be said for holding hands across the console.

3. You make fun of each other. Constantly.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F29%2F6361599644760979381406304879_Andy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=963&h=3d636d5e9064d36e52992868066ec53c95bfa7f22734b9783923e53aa22f718a&size=980x&c=1263840430 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F29%252F6361599644760979381406304879_Andy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D963%26h%3D3d636d5e9064d36e52992868066ec53c95bfa7f22734b9783923e53aa22f718a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1263840430%22%7D" expand=1]

It’s never too mean, but it’s always spot on. Somehow, you both have the uncanny ability to drag each other in the funniest way possible.

4. You can always make each other laugh.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F29%2F636159965359250963-592428743_Oprah.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=417&h=08251dcd6bc27aaa3a129ca7eb10cb72f74d8c83e28855f7b91265e7df11e83c&size=980x&c=390252972 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F29%252F636159965359250963-592428743_Oprah.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D417%26h%3D08251dcd6bc27aaa3a129ca7eb10cb72f74d8c83e28855f7b91265e7df11e83c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D390252972%22%7D" expand=1]

This is always one of the best things about being together. You are constantly doubled over in laughter about something you guys said or did.

5. You're not afraid to embarrass each other.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F29%2F636159969221592825-768656320_Embarassed.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=812&h=6ecbe8347f45efea2ef10c8adbaf91f00a08065dbea72fdef0d2fbb2ca428e0d&size=980x&c=2273567770 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F29%252F636159969221592825-768656320_Embarassed.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D812%26h%3D6ecbe8347f45efea2ef10c8adbaf91f00a08065dbea72fdef0d2fbb2ca428e0d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2273567770%22%7D" expand=1]

Sure your boyfriend will tell all of his friends about the time that you rapped Justin Bieber's "Baby" the first time he said I love you, (true story, by the way) but don't worry. You will exact your revenge.

6. Date night isn’t always fancy, but it’s always fun.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F29%2F636159956601455508-788727218_Taco%2520Bell.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=559&h=8c5e237cc19c7701f3d62f170038e680785ecaa4850dda618c2654636de2689f&size=980x&c=2360431398 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F29%252F636159956601455508-788727218_Taco%252520Bell.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D559%26h%3D8c5e237cc19c7701f3d62f170038e680785ecaa4850dda618c2654636de2689f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2360431398%22%7D" expand=1]

You can go from seeing the symphony one weekend to eating fast food and watching Netflix the next. Either way, it's just a good time being together.

7. You tell each other everything.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F29%2F6361599556842137241244313803_details.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=3&h=25a103e9a48378b6f15b37c8bf1f6413c0970e086f48715b5ce11f3dc256b44e&size=980x&c=369907650 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F29%252F6361599556842137241244313803_details.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D3%26h%3D25a103e9a48378b6f15b37c8bf1f6413c0970e086f48715b5ce11f3dc256b44e%26size%3D980x%26c%3D369907650%22%7D" expand=1]

The minute something happens, your first instinct is to shoot your boyfriend/girlfriend a text with all the details.

8. You are both so mushy in the most ridiculous way.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F29%2F636159953690385737893574030_636159952535226622-1117321206_Andy2.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=911&h=6d0d01b7a711191699a19eae2e9496a6f47005147a6514c08edf3f69fbe88ff1&size=980x&c=819564733 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F29%252F636159953690385737893574030_636159952535226622-1117321206_Andy2.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D911%26h%3D6d0d01b7a711191699a19eae2e9496a6f47005147a6514c08edf3f69fbe88ff1%26size%3D980x%26c%3D819564733%22%7D" expand=1]

Maybe it's over the top to call your significant other ridiculous things like "my twin flame" or hug at least five times before leaving each other, but it's mostly for laughs and it's kind of endearing.

9. You’re always there to support one another.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F29%2F636159953695260193-1171965580_636159949088693205-655595361_Yay.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=949&h=015050511065c7cde069d1f688e91e9685732babc78e294d8e759e7b46eef867&size=980x&c=1880716944 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F29%252F636159953695260193-1171965580_636159949088693205-655595361_Yay.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D949%26h%3D015050511065c7cde069d1f688e91e9685732babc78e294d8e759e7b46eef867%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1880716944%22%7D" expand=1]

Through thick and thin, you're always there on the sidelines cheering each other on. You can't help but being a giant dork about it either.

10. Even your fights are hilarious.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F29%2F636159953693812296852791155_636159949702179851-752244420_fight.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=901&h=55f38622981ce09ba07108d80ce6f776293ab193b78359385a5e8f28dbfd2d98&size=980x&c=1457944792 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F29%252F636159953693812296852791155_636159949702179851-752244420_fight.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D901%26h%3D55f38622981ce09ba07108d80ce6f776293ab193b78359385a5e8f28dbfd2d98%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1457944792%22%7D" expand=1]

You may not fight a lot, but when you do, it's always funny. You always end up saying the most absurd things, and in the end, you are laughing so much that you forgot what you were even fighting about in the first place.

11. They just get you.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F29%2F6361599536944375461534779508_636159953388359594-614617626_luv.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=123&h=6339f4ce4fb2e27ce236867fdbedd9117e2e245f7f946f5ac6dd9e1fc1949574&size=980x&c=2629327626 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F29%252F6361599536944375461534779508_636159953388359594-614617626_luv.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D123%26h%3D6339f4ce4fb2e27ce236867fdbedd9117e2e245f7f946f5ac6dd9e1fc1949574%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2629327626%22%7D" expand=1]

It may be cheesy, but it's true. At the end of the day, you guys just go together. You can't explain it, but you simply click.

Launched by Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad in 2014, My Stealthy Freedom is a commendable campaign that shows women going against the strict hijab restrictions in Iran. This movement has recently gained a lot of momentum on their Facebook page and is currently even gaining support from tourists in Iran. Ms. Alinejad shares photos of men in hijabs and women inside Iran who have taken part in a moment of 'stealthy freedom' by removing their hijabs to the outside world.

Going to Las Vegas for the weekend is practically a sacramental right of passage in college. It’s so crucial to our early adulthood development that Snapchat even made a filter that says “Vegas for the Weekend.” Damn Snapchat, you really do get it.

10 Reasons Coffee Is The Best In Honor Of National Coffee Day
https://www.pexels.com/photo/six-white-ceramic-mugs-1251175/

National Coffee Day falls on September 29, a fact that I don't think I'll ever forget, even though I didn't even know it was a "holiday" until just recently. Maybe that's because my love for coffee is still a recent development, or maybe I just don't keep up enough with the times, but either way, I can't think of any better time to recount why we all probably love it so much.
