Whether or not you have already thought of them in a romantic way, it is worth considering whether there is more to your relationship than you originally thought. Here are same signs that your best friend might just be “The One.”
1. Other friends point it out on a regular basis
Those closest to you regularly ask when you two are getting together, and you’re constantly having to convince them that you are just good friends.
They have clearly sensed the chemistry between you and your best friend, even if you haven’t realized it yourselves yet.
2. You’re more than a little touchy-feely
Let’s face it, you’re more physical with your best friend than any average pair of BFFs. Your hugs linger, you find yourself playing with your hair when you talk to them, and you regularly break the touch barrier.
On top of that, you often find yourselves bantering or teasing each other in a flirtatious manner.
3. You always agree on important issues
You’ve confided in *and vented to* each other about various different concerns, as best friends do. If you find yourselves agreeing on these issues – especially the dating-related ones – then you are probably a good match!
4. Your day seems incomplete if you haven’t checked in with each other
They are the first person you want to talk to about anything, and you both insist on keeping in constant contact when you are apart.
5. Silences are never awkward
Sure, it’s fun to go out and do things, but you’re more than happy to do nothing together. In fact, you can even sit in silence without it being awkward. You’re just happy in each other’s company.
6. Your interest in each other’s lives goes beyond a personal level
You’re invested in the lives of their other friends and their family as well. You know when their sister has exams, or when their mom has an important doctor’s appointment, and you care about the outcome.
7. It’s all smiles and laughter
Whenever you are with them, you are happy and at ease, and everything you do together is fun. They can make you laugh and smile, even when you are feeling at your lowest.
8. You’re practically telepathically connected
You finish each other’s sentences, and you know exactly what the other person is thinking or feeling. What’s more, you couldn’t take on life without them supporting you – a little piece of you would be missing.
9. You share their enthusiasm and disappointment for their successes and failures as if they were your own.
No feigned happiness or commiseration here. When they’re nervous about their upcoming job interview or exam, you have just as many butterflies in your stomach as they do.
10. You accept them, warts and all
They can be as candid, as comfortable, and as crazy as they like around you, and you still adore them. You know their failures and regrets, and you’re more than happy to accept them regardless.
11. They are your number one topic of conversation
You can’t stop talking about them to your other friends, even when you try not to. You even boast about their achievements and share their amusing anecdotes with as much enthusiasm as you do your own.
12. There is no need to impress
You don’t feel the need to impress them or act in a certain way. You can simply be yourself: no makeup, no fancy clothes, and no perfectly styled hair. You feel more comfortable around them than with anyone else.
13. They know you from the inside out
They know your worst habits, your guiltiest pleasures, and your deepest, darkest secrets. They don’t judge you for them, and they’re just as comfortable sharing their own little secrets with you.
14. You’re prepared to sacrifice your own wants and needs for theirs
You’re willing to do things you know the other person likes, even if you’re not keen on them yourself. You sat by them whilst they embarked on a six-hour marathon of their favorite TV show, and they’d do the same for you.
