And after you've gotten so close that you can share every weird, embarrassing body/bae/life thought you have and spend entire weekends together binge-watching your favorite TV shows without getting out of your PJs, you KNOW you've found your partner-in-crime, soulmate, best friend for life. They immediately like every Instagram post/favorite every tweet/comment on every Facebook pic, 'OMG ~BABE ALERT~'2. They're down to lay in bed with you all day watching Netflix and eating burritos.4. When you see each other for the first time in months, it's basically like zero time has passed.6.
