12 Signs You And Your Roommate Are Actually Dating

12 Signs You And Your Roommate Are Actually Dating

As told by Lillian and Annie from "Bridesmaids."

Whether you have an actual boyfriend/girlfriend or not, the truth is there is one person who will always have a piece of your heart — your roommate aka best friend. No matter what time it is or where you are, your roommate is someone you can count on, no matter what. In fact, you may be so close that people constantly associate you with each other. Little do they know, you’re even closer than they think!

Here are 12 signs you and your roommate are basically dating.

1. You talk constantly.

She knows you hate your professor and that girl on the bus is beyond annoying, but she’ll let you say it as many times as you need to get it out of your system. Basically, she gets a play-by-play of your life.

2. Need someone to indulge in a midnight pizza or (if you’re 21 or over) have a wine night with? Look no further.

A bottle of Moscato and Domino’s delivery? You got it.

3. You motivate each other.

You possibly may be the one waking them up for their 8 a.m. every other day.

4. You’re extremely comfortable together.

Between walking around the apartment with significantly less clothing on than generally acceptable, or knowing everything about the guy you’ve been seeing, you can pretty much tell her anything — even the gross stuff.

5. She’s always ready to do something fun (when you get yourselves away from HGTV, of course).

Between parties and the need to see the movie that just came out, you always have someone to go out with.

6. You don’t even need to talk to communicate.

They know what "the look" means.

7. They are always someone you can count on.

Sick at 4 a.m.? Breakup? One too many tequila shots? They’ll be there.

8. Your actual significant other knows that you two are two peas in a pod.

This means that date nights involve interruption because you absolutely have to talk to her about something.

9. She knows you better than you know yourself.

For example, she knows you really ate pizza for dinner and not that salad you have in the fridge, you hate "Flip or Flop" because "Fixer Upper" is so much better, and even the last time you shaved your legs.

10. You’ve probably committed to each other with some serious level.

Dinner with the parents? Planning a vacation? Contemplating adopting a dog? Of course you are.

11. You don’t hate them when they tell it like it is.

Deep down, you know you and the guy in your Chem lecture won’t work out and you probably shouldn’t order out for the 15th time this month, so really it’s for your own good.

12. There’s no one else you could see yourself living with in your small apartment.

To The Grandmothers Who Made Us The Women We Are Today

Sincerely, the loving granddaughters.

The relationship between a grandmother and her granddaughter is something so uniquely special and something to be treasured forever.

Your grandma loves you like you are her own daughter and adores you no matter what. She is the first person you run to when you have a problem with your parents and she never fails to grace you with the most comforting advice.

She may be guilty of spoiling you rotten but still makes sure to stress the importance of being thankful and kind.

Your grandma has most likely lived through every obstacle that you are experiencing now as a young adult and always knows just exactly what to say.

She grew up in another generation where things were probably much harder for young women than they are today.

She is a walking example of perseverance, strength, and grace who you aim to be like someday.

Your grandma teaches you the lessons she had to learn the hard way because she does not want you to make the same mistakes she did when she was growing up.

Her hugs never fail to warm your heart, her smile never fails to make you smile, and her laugh never fails to brighten your day.

She inspires you to be the best version of yourself that you can be.

You only hope that one day you can be the mother and grandmother she was to you.

A piece of girl’s heart will forever belong to her grandma that no one could ever replace.

She is the matriarch of your family and is the glue that holds you all together.

Grandmothers play such an important role in helping their granddaughters to grow into strong, intelligent, kind women.

She teaches you how to love and how to forgive.

Without the unconditional love of your grandma, you would not be the woman you are today.

To all of the grandmothers out there, thank you for being you.
