13 Things Only Your Best Friend Knows About You.


A true best friend can list a hundred things they love about you and they know a hundred things you hate about yourself. You can talk to them for hours, even days if you didn’t have to sleep. You can trust them with your life and you can tell exactly what they’re thinking from a slight change to the expression on their face.


You are peas in a pod who can argue and make up within one conversation. You don’t back stab each other and you keep each others secrets at any cost. Here is a list of 13 things that only your best friend knows about you…

1. How much of an idiot your boss is

Your best friend knows what your boss talks like, walks like, smells like and where they went on holiday last year, even though your best friend doesn’t work with you.

2. How you still feel about the ex

They know that you just couldn’t get over him and you’ll always have a weakness for him but you don’t like to talk about him, unless you’ve had 3 glasses of wine.

3 The most embarrassing thing that happened to you in high school

You both remember it like it was yesterday and boy does your best mate like to bring that up over and over! If it was anybody else it wouldn’t be cool but since it’s your best pal, it’s OK.

4. The meanest thing you did back in high school

Wow you could be mean when you wanted to, and you don’t like to look back at yourself like that. But when your best friend brings it up, you two still start laughing about it .

5. Up to date information about your health.

From weird back pain to IBS to irregular periods your best friend knows about all your ailments and they even think to ask you how they’re all coming along.

6. What your go-to binge food is.

They know what your comfort food is and they can even sense when a junk food binge is needed. If you’re lucky, they’ll even go and pick it up for you!

7. How terrible your ex was in bed.

And how much you two laughed when you tried to explain.

8. How brilliant your ex was in bed.

A different ex, of course.

9. All the skeletons in your family’s closet.

This includes your creepy uncle, your crazy sister and your criminal cousin.

10. How badly you can actually Facebook stalk someone.

And the truth is; it’s pretty bad. You can instantly recognise a new face on his friends list, you’ve even researched every one who’s tagged in his photos and you’ve had a sleepless night about the purse in the background of his profile picture because this is the only clue as to wether he’s started seeing someone.


11. The little things that you just cannot deal with;

the word “moist”, people who chew too loudly and people who walk too slowly. They also know when you’re about to blow and they’ve seen it happen on one or more occasion.

12. Your secret crush in the office.

ONLY your best friend knows this because you would die if they ever found out!

13. Why you hate a girl who has done absolutely nothing to you

And you’ve never even met her (she followed your ex on Twitter the same week that you two broke up).
