6 Weird Things You Do If Your Mom Is Your Best Friend

Many people begin to distance themselves from their parents after they reach college. In fact, some might even find it strange if you mention that your mom is your best friend. But you already know the truth -- your mom is the best friend you could've ever asked for! Here are 11 weird things that you probably do if your mom is your bestie.

1. You're open with each other. Like, really open.

Most people probably haven't discussed sex with their mom (beyond the birds and the bees, anyway). They also probably don't talk in depth about their periods or that totally gross mole on your back that's been there for like, two months. But you do!

2. You give and expect brutally honest opinions.

If you ask a friend's opinion on an outfit, they'll probably politely tell you it's nice. Your mom, on the other hand, will tell you if it's unflattering, too sexy or otherwise awful. You don't need to hesitate to exchange your opinions with your mom because you know there won't be any offense taken. It's practically like sharing thoughts with yourself.

3. You analyze (and over-analyze) conversations with boys together.[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F17%2F635964577090470877866754626_howdoyouuu.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=445&h=56a443c0e06f51ffe3333796832ca517f8f0de7343ddd5d870c15939ed0e0d4f&size=980x&c=4036068459 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F17%252F635964577090470877866754626_howdoyouuu.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D445%26h%3D56a443c0e06f51ffe3333796832ca517f8f0de7343ddd5d870c15939ed0e0d4f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4036068459%22%7D" expand=1]

Does he like you? Is this text from a total fuckboy? When in doubt, ask your mom. She's got more experience, after all!

4. You share obsessions.

When your favorite show got cancelled, you immediately called your mom to cry about it with her. The two of you heavily debate the hottest character on "Supernatural" and freak out when someone dies on "The Walking Dead." So what if you discuss the newest episode of "Suits" for half an hour after watching it?

5. You complain to her about people she doesn't even know (and she totally backs you up).

That professor assigned you reading at 10 p.m. the night before class? Ugh, bitch! That girl who lives two doors down keeps playing loud music? She's so inconsiderate. It doesn't matter who it is; your mom has got your back.

6. You both automatically know whenever something is wrong.

When you call your mom, you can just get out a "Hello" before she knows you're upset. And she's always right. Sometimes you don't even realize you're sad until she asks what's wrong.

So be thankful for your moms this Mother's Day. She's the best mom you could've asked for -- make sure you let her know!
